Pow-Wow Dress of Today WAO (F2785) $28
"Girls today who share Kaya’s Nez Perce roots often wear traditional outfits like this one to pow-wows. Help your doll dance to the slow beat of a drum in this beautiful fringed dress. Add a beaded choker and embroidered moccasins, plus a feathered comb for her hair. Set includes trading cards and a matching beaded choker for you, too!"
My thoughts are that this could have been better made for the money it cost. The fabric is much thinner than her other outfits and the strings on the moccasins are too short to wrap around twice.
The front panel is not woven, but just a piece of material hooked to a red ribbon that velcros in the back. The design on the hair comb is also just material and not actually woven.
My biggest problem with this outfit is that her necklace no longer has the magnetic closure (due to safety concerns.) It seems that AG did NOT increase it's length any, but took off the magnets and added a regular closure. This does not give any room for you to hook it around her neck. It is way too tight. A young child could not fasten this around Kaya's neck. I could barely get it on her after struggling with it for sometime.
The colors on this outfit are beautiful and it has the potential to be a great outfit for Kaya. Just a few minor defects. Grade B.
