I just got my Kirsten so I could finally try on my recent eBay purchase. I just love the dirndl outfit! The fabric feels wonderful, and while each piece is rather bland separately, when it is put together on Kirsten, it looks absolutely adorable! It fits my brand-new Kirsten perfectly - nothis too tight or too loose. The blouse is well-finished, and I like the full sleeves. I too would prefer if the vest really did lace up the front, but I can understand how easily the lacing could get lost. I'm willing to compromise when the results are this cute.
