Okay, I admit I could never figure out why a yellow dress is called Orange Blossom, I mean even if orange blossoms are yellow, they are still called orange right? Why not Lemon Blossom?
Anyway, this was Barbie’s bridesmaid dress, often shown worn by Midge. The hat is difficult to find with the tulle intact, otherwise the ensemble is fairly easy to find. The first two years it was made it included short white gloves, with long gloves included in 1963 and 1964.
