Now, I've liked the design for this dress since I saw the illustration for it and I want Cécile to have all her outfits (plus I'm apparently a sucker and fell for the LE aspect) so I went ahead and grabbed this one when I ordered her, passing on the Parlour Outfit I've been wanting for months.
I have to agree, the material is thin and yucky. This is the same fabric as some other AG outfits (such as Felicity's Christmas gown -- probably my biggest AG clothing disappointment). Although askmkids had a very good point that the fabric probably should be sheer. Her meet dress is a bit sheer but it's a MUCH nicer material. I'm not sure why they couldn't have made this in a similar fabric.
I know many people hate or dislike the color, but that I don't mind. It doesn't look neon to me... mine is a very summery lemon yellow. I love the boots and bonnet. I think the whole look is very cute, despite my disappointment in the dress fabric. Overall, I'd give this a B-.
