I never liked this dress till I joined this board. The catalogue can't seem to do it justice. But after seeing all the wonderful pictures on here, I fell in love. Then once Caroline was announced, I decided I should get it so she'll have it once she gets here. The dress is really pretty by itself. Lovely and delicate, but I can still see it as an everyday type dress.
I'm like many others, and don't feel that the jacket matches this dress. But the jacket itself I think is wonderful. Its a black wool fabric, and is fully lined. The little buttons actually button. I didn't have trouble using them, but I can see how a child might. Even though it doesn't really "go" with this dress, I think it'll be a good piece to have in Caroline's collection.
