Tweed was the fabric that added interest and texture to Barbie® doll's elegant two-piece dress suit. The fabric was a rich weave of browns with flecks of burgundy and shimmers of metallic gold. The tight sheath skirt with back snap was topped by a long-sleeved fitted jacket with brown fur trim on the collar and the cuffs. There were six golden buttons on the double-breasted (snap closing) front. A self-fabric turban, brown open-toe shoes, short brown tricot gloves and a gold purse with fur trim, chain handle, and gold ornament completed the desirable ensemble.
