I have to say, I am also a fan of this dress. I bought it for Rebecca since I prefer it over her Lace Dress and I have to say-much prettier in person! It's a light, pastel pink, not a hue over-powering or blinding to the eyes. The dress is made of a soft cotton; the material is not to thick nor thin-appropriate for a spring dress. I like the eyelet trim right above the hem of the dress, the sleeves, and the collar. Nice, delicate, feminine touch. The collar takes up most of the bodice. I like the collar, personally. It's what gives the whole outfit character. The eyelet lace even reaches her neck a bit. The shoes were not easy for me. They did not fit over the tights, but without tights, they fit with a bit of a pull. The heel makes it a bit hard to adjust her to stand, but once done so, she stays up perfectly fine. I like the flower ribbon on the toe of the shoes. They would be rather plain without them. The necklace is also one of my favorite parts. The chain is just the right length, centering in the collar of the dress perfectly. It can be used with many different outfits. The bow is a clip. While it is not historically accurate, most likely, it is much more functional and easy to use, in my opinion. But the rhinestones? I have a very, very strong aversion to them. They ruin the whole clip. They are NOT historically accurate, nor even attractive or pleasing in any way. Ugh... The tights are standard AG snagging tights.
Overall, A minus the clip. The clip deserves an A for functionality, but an F for actual design.
