Vintage Barbie Sheath Sensation

Vintage Barbie Sheath Sensation #986 (1961-1964)

Red Sheath Dress
Straw Hat with Red Ribbon
Short White Gloves
White Open Toe Heels

This vintage classic is easy to find – usually in great condition. If the gold beads have darkened, they can be easily replaced if you desire. The dress has snaps for closure in the back and should have the black & white cloth tag. The straw hat is very difficult to find un-frayed and with the ribbon un-faded. The straw hat should also have a headband inside that fits over Barbie’s head. The shoes and gloves are fairly easy to find.

Skipper's matching ensemble is Red Sensation #1901 (1964 - 1965) .
