My partner got me this dress for Junie, my Julie stand-in. I was mixed on this outfit. I loved it in the catalog on Julie, hated it when I first took it out of the box, felt okay about it on Junie when I had it with the scarf, and loved it again when I took the silly babushka off.
I think the dress works fantastically with Junie's skin tone and hair.
The dress from the back. The ribbon trim goes all the way round the sleeves, and the border on the hem does too. Yay! The dress is really well-made.
I figured someone would want to see the tights, so Junie agreed to moon y'all. They're regular AG tights, solid red. I wouldn't leave them on the doll that long, even though they're manmade fibre. Junie has a black fleece beret that left marks on her forhead, and I bet these will turn a doll's booty pink, too.
The scarf is really BIG. Like, the size of Rebecca's or Josefina's shawls. This is nice, since it made putting it on really easy, but it takes a little bit of fiddling to get it to lie right. It might look better on dolls with hair that is flat instead of curly.
Overall grade: A+ Seriously, one of the best outfits AG has made in terms of detail, workmanship, accessories and uniqueness.
