Vintage Barbie Fashion Pak Belle Dress

The Vintage Barbie Fashion Pak Belle dress made elegance look easy with classic design and a single strand of pearls.  Sold from 1962 - 1963, this outfit featured a v-neck and snapped in the back. The single pleat styling in the front was accented with a self-fabric bow at the waist.  The vintage Barbie Fashion Pak Belle dress was done in polished cotton for this version and received an upgrade to silk Shantung in Campus Belle in 1964.  This version is much easier to find - the cotton holds up very well.

1962 - 1963

The cotton version is easy to find. It is currently selling for around $100 if it has never been removed from the package and around $25 to $30 for a dress in near mint condition. Add another $10 to $20 if the necklace is included. Obviously, the price decreases as the condition deteriorates.

Released in blue, orange or pink, the pink dress is harder to find today.
The orange dress is sometimes called Coral.

Campus Belle

Deep Blue or Rose Pink Silk Dress
White Graduated Pearl Necklace
Short White Gloves
White Open Toe Heels

Campus Belle was released in 1964 fashioned in the same style as the previous version.  Perfectly upgraded with the addition of gloves and heels in a new silk Shantung fabric. These are much harder to find and more valuable.

These dresses will sell for around $125 if they are near mint. They are so rare to find never removed from the package, I can't even venture a guess on the value.

There is a rare very dark blue variation that sold in July, 2013 for $285.

Dress Inspiration.
It seems the inspiration for this dress is none other than First Lady Jackie Kennedy, as you can see in this photograph. It was designed by Oleg Cassini, her official designer while she lived in the White House.

Barbie Fashion Booklets.
Here you will find how these dresses appeared in the Barbie Fashion Booklets.  As you can see, the Belle dress was promoted for both Barbie and Midge.
