I actually like this outfit, but I would have to rate parts of it differently.
Hoodie: B- The hoodie is prone to stretching out over time, and one of the ones I had wouldn't ever stay snapped. I did like the hoodie's muted colors and its versatility with other outfits, but I really wish that it was longer in the torso. To my eyes, it makes the dolls look short-waisted (okay, yeah, I know they don't have waists, but still....)
Skirt: A I really like the skirt. I like that it has a zipper instead of velcro, and I like that it is long. I like the weave in the fabric that gives it texture, I like the cargo pockets. Okay, I admit it; I'd wear this. It's a refreshing change from the short skirts AG usually gives us. The skirt fits well on most PM dolls and I think the style is great. It was a unique look for AG. While I personally loathe status labels on my own clothing, I don't mind the AG logo that is on this skirt.
Vest: B- The vest was a disappointment. It is also too short-waisted for the looks of the outfit. I could have lived with a short vest had the hoodie been longer. Also, the AG tag on the vest is an irritant. The zippers for both vests I had were a little tough to maneuver, so I would think it would also be a challenge for a young girl to zip. My grade would be lower for this piece, but it is redeemed by its reversibility (once the pesky tag is snipped off, that is).
Footwear: B Shoes are okay. I am not a MaryJane person so they don't impress, but they are fine for what they are and can be switched out with other things, I guess. Socks haven't gone all slouchy over time, so that's a plus. These socks can work with your average non-AG Hogwarts uniform, by the way.
No grade for the undies, since I never had them, They are plain white briefs, nothing to write home about.
Total grade: B.
Incidentally, my daughter's doll below is wearing the messenger bag that was sold as part of the Meet Accessories from 00-03. I only have the bag, otherwise I'd review the whole set in Accessories.
