Kirsten’s school dress is one of the few pieces in Kirsten’s collection to undergo a substantial change. In 1991-2 the print on Kirsten’s school dress was changed. Some sources say it was changed later, but I’m very certain that I purchased my 2nd dress in the early 1990s. The first version of Kirsten’s school dress is softer, is a brighter red and has little addition signs. The second version is a little stiffer, more a cranberry color and has a floral print. I personally prefer the older version. The dress also comes with two woven, navy hair ribbons and a shawl. My older shawl feels a tiny bit thicker and softer, but there are no other changes.
Though the pioneers probably couldn’t care less, I think the school dress clashes a bit with Kirsten’s checked, meet bonnet and wish the set came with a darker colored one. Oh well! My Kirstens often wear the meet apron with the dress, which looks quite cute. The birthday pinafore looks cute over the new school dress too.
