What a great outfit. My cousin actually got this at the outlet, had it for a while, then said I could have it. So sweet!
I love the mint green of the dress and the story behind it that says Ms. Gilford made the dress. I saw it as a funny contrast to Molly's recital dress, which was said to be bought new. I love that the dress can trancend time periods; I had Petra go to Samantha's birthday party wearing this and she didn't look out of place at all. The clips seem basic. I had an issue with mine as the appliques were coming off the metal barette. I just glued them back on with tacky glue and they are fine. The shoes don't exactly fit PM feet perfectly- I've had to stretch the straps to close. But the dress fits all dolls great and looks great!
