Vintage Barbie Cruise Stripes #918
Dress with Navy Skirt & Red & White Stripe Bodice
The red and white ribbed cotton bodice and navy blue skirt have held up very well over the years and this dress is fairly easy to find.
The dress closes in the back with a zipper.
It is harder to find the white vinyl belt.
