Emily’s Snowsuit Item# F5178 $26 (price went up to $32 January 2009)
Snowsuits like Emily’s were just becoming popular for girls in the 1940s. Her suit features:
* Bib-style snow pants * A belted jacket with faux-fur trim around the hood * Zip-up snow boots and mittens
I bought this a couple years ago because it looked like something I had in the 70's. There are a pair of bib-overall type snow pants that are thick low-pile fleece (to resemble wool.) They button at the straps and have "patches" on the knees.
The jacket is a thinner material made to resemble wool and it has a metal zipper. The jacket has adorable blue flowers embroidered on the front. The belt really buckles, but doesn't come completely off of the jacket. The mittens hook through her coat sleeves so she won't loose them.
The boots are vinyl and canvas with metal zippers and very well made.
It's great that the pieces are separate but coordinating. I made the felt scarf that Ivy is wearing in this photo. Great set. Grade A
