Here is another very rare item for the ultimate Barbie collector! This girls tennis dress or slip is one of the rare licensed Barbie items available in the mid 60's as girls clothing. I've never seen this item for sale anywhere. There is no size marked on this dress but I have listed measurements below.
The dress is clean and still has pleats in its' skirt. The chest area has a script Barbie logo done in red and blue embroidery.It's in excellent condition and its' only issue is that it has light bluish marks along the lower left front. Of the dress in the photo, and a very faint mark near the left shoulder. I have 2 close-up pics of those areas; please scroll through all of my photos. The dress was stored for years against a blue item, and the color bled onto the tennis dress. The zipper works great, and is marked on the zipper pull "STATE". There is not tag identifying fabric content, but I'm guessing this is made of a nylon/rayon blend of some sort.
The tag at the neckline identifies it as an Barbie item made in Hawthorne, California, U. Across the bust from armpit to armpit: 16" (40.64 cm) From back of neck to hem: 22 3/4" (57.78 cm).
Across shoulders from shoulder seam to shoulder seam: 13 (33.02 cm). Across drop waist (where pleated skirt starts) 16 1/2 (41.91 cm).
This dress would look great on display in a vintage Barbie collection. And it would look adorable on a young girl or perhaps a very petite adult collector.
