Vintage Barbie Cruise Stripes #918 (1959-1962)
Dress with Navy Skirt & Red & White Stripe Bodice
Black Open Toe Heels
The red and white ribbed cotton bodice and navy blue skirt hold up very well over the years and this dress is fairly easy to find.
It is harder to find the white vinyl belt.
The dress closes in the back with a zipper.
This is the same dress that was included in Roman Holiday.
Dresses with the cloth tag will be Cruise Stripes, without the tag will be from Roman Holiday (the tag was in the coat). Dresses made in 1959 will have TM on the tag, after 1959 will have the ®.
This NRFB version sold for $799.95 in July 2013.
The dress was reproduced in the 1994 35th Anniversary Vintage Barbie Reproduction Gift Set
This is the clone (generic) version of the dress.
It was pictured on this black vintage Barbie Train Case. (It's on the far right.)
