This is one of my favorite Samantha outfits. It seems very classy and elegant. I got it when I was eight or nine, and it's still in pretty good condition. Of all my mounds of retired Sam outfits, this is one of the ones that really stands out. Mine is original 1998 edition and tagged Pleasant Company, but it still fits my April 2005 ex-AGOT Erica. If you have a third Edwardian period girl like my Erica, this makes a perfect Christmas dress. IMHO it still looks like a girl's dress, but for an older girl than her cranberry dress looks like it is for.
