This is a really great outfit. I haven't had too much trouble with it, but then again the newer dolls are thin so I just pull it down so it looks longer. I wouldn't dare to try and put this on my older and chubbier dolls, because there is no way it would fit. I have to agree that I think the pocho would be better if it had velcro (though due to the material being thin, that wouldn't work). There was one time where I was pulling the shirt down and I pulled the poncho by accident as well and it got streched out a bit. It has appeared to have taken its shape again, but I'm sure with constant use it could easily get stretched out. I really like the color combination that they chose for this set, and as much as I dislike those types of boots, I really like this pair. A+ for the Sightseeing Outfit.
