I've never been particularly fond of this coat, to be honest. I like to get things that are referenced in the books, but my Addy doesn't wear it often.
While I appreciate the detail of the functional buttons (which may be a bit challenging for little hands to do up without assistance), and accept that the length and sewn-on scarf are period-appropriate, I would have paid more to get a coat with at least an inner lining and one that is better proportioned. As it is, the coat just doesn't seem to lay properly on my Addy. I think it could have been better designed.
On the plus side, it is roomy enough to go over all of her outfits.
It originally retailed for $18, and remains reasonable at $24. This item did not see a price increase as did many others in 2012. Considering value for price, but taking into account my own preferences where this item falls short, grade B+.
