I got this for Christmas and agree that it's tight! You would not be able to put it on a doll wearing long sleeves. Maybe my jacket is extra tight, but I don't think a child would be able to put the jacket on. The material also feels kind of cheap. It is definitely cute though, I like that it's red with just a little pink. I give it a B- because it's hard to use but is very cute and there aren't a lot of jackets to pick from.
