I have purchased this dress for two of my granddaughters (one in 2009, and one this fall) and I ordered it for my Felicity on Dec. 26th. The newest dress is horrible! They changed the fabric--it's now a stiff material you might see used to make a tent, it's not the pretty taffeta they used formerly. I have complained to AG about it and am sending it back. I'll use the pattern from this site to make a holiday dress.
