The Coat - B The coat buttons up in the front, and thankfully it's not a horrible challenge to do that. So, it's a cute coat, whether you use it as a coat or just a dress (which AG seems to be marketing it as). I had my dollies naked underneath it, but I'm sure it would still fit well if they had other clothes on. Since the coat is very soft and black, I imagine that it will attract pet hair.
B because...it's nice, but it didn't wow me.
The boots velcro in the back.
The Boots - C I think it will always be difficult to put these tall boots on. It's actually harder to take them off. But they look decent enough to not get a failing grade.
The Hair Ties - C+ Like it was mentioned before, two loops is too loose, and three is a bit on the tight side. I still managed to get them to fit, though, but they get the grade they got because although I like the puffballs, I don't want to struggle that much to put them on.
The outfit in it's entirety on a brunette...
...and on a blondie. I think that this outfit looks a lot better on lighter-haired dolls than darker-haired ones. So I'm making this Julie's winter outfit, because her little gauchos aren't going to keep her warm from the harsh Ohio winters.
But, of course, once the coat arrives, the snow has melted and it's 60 degrees outside.
