I like this outfit, but it is not one of my favorites from Kit's collection. The socks really annoy me and get fuzzy things on them. Also, they feel thin and cheap. You see the fuzzies in the pictures below. I did not have much of a problem putting the shoes on the feet.
Overall, it is a good outfit, but I like Kit's other school outfit better.
Beatrice is modeling because she was jealous that Ruthie was the model and wanted her turn. It doesn't look bad on her.
This was my goal for 2011. My MIL owns a pale purple version of Kit's School Outfit. She bought it at the Chicago store shortly after Kit was released. She didn't even realize that the outfit is suppose to be blue until I told her. Many people on this board are skeptical of the outfit and think it has faded over the years, but it is purple. My personal opinion is that quality control was off at the plant and for what ever reason purple fabric was used instead of blue.
Pictures are below.
