Here are the best pics I have of my Lissie wearing this. I don't know if the newer ones have it but mine has a small blue flower on the pompon along with pink and white flowers. I got mine in 1998.
ETA: I was looking back at this and should probably give it a more proper review This has always been one of my favorite historical outfits. It was the first extra outfit I had gotten for my Felicity (got it for her birthday in Spring 1998). The color is a nice medium dusty pink (or what I think of a dusty pink). It's not too light, not too bright, and not too dark. The gown looks lovely by itself, without the apron and pompon. Some of the book illustrations show it alone, too (with Nan having a similar purple one). Also, I don't think it really clashes with Felicity's hair (and yes, redheads can wear pink-I do. Certain pinks are clashy but others not as much-or at least no one has given me weird looks/told me I look awful in pink).
The apron's print is very pretty and the top stays up alright sometimes, without the pins. I lost the pins long ago but I think similar bigger straight pins might work, too. They might be a tad long but that's alright.
The pompon is cute and I usually can get it on fairly easily. The stockings are equally cute. They have a nice embroidery and they're not a plain white or black, which is a nice change. My Lissie wears them a lot but part of that is also because I tossed out her meet stockings years ago due to icky holes in them.
