The quality of the Mattel Barbie “My Fair Lady” dresses and accessories are exceptional. Not only are they very well made, but they are very close replicas of the original gowns from the movie starring Audrey Hepburn and Rex Harrison. This is the lovely pink chiffon gown & hat she’s wearing in the closing scene.
The dress is stitched on to the doll, but the closing seam is easy to find and remove with a seam ripper tool without damaging the gown if you choose to remove it from the doll. You will find both seams (the gown is two layers, the chiffon on top) down the back fo the dress.
The lovely shrug has a snap closure under the chiffon rosette in the front. The shoes are a pearlescent pink.
The in-box set comes with the doll, dress, shrug, hat, boa wrap, shoes, stand, Certificate of Authenticity. The box is very well thought out too in that it is packaged as a “story box;” there are pictures from the movie on the inside cover flap. The back of the box has a lot of information too.
In short, I absolutely love this gown!
