I bought this outfit for Nellie and it's so adorable on her:
The fit is perfect and I'm crazy about the style. I'm particular about lace but quite like the lace on this dress. It does not seem excessively thin to me, though I certainly wouldn't have minded if it was lined! I could do without the little pink bows on the hips, but they're okay. The shoes are fine, not my favorite, but fine. The hair bow is kind of short and VERY wide, it looks huge on Nellie's head but is pretty cute! Seems like little girls back then wore giant hair bows anyway. The ribbon is thick, silky on both sides, and very nice. I do wish the outfit came with tights because Nellie looks pretty bear legged. Overall, this is one of my favorite historical outfits and I give it an A- (because it needs tights!).
