I'm glad I got Poison Ivy's New Year monkey jacket (shown here on Jess). th' red dress looks so bonny wit' her dark hair & th' silky fabric be a good quality. Her black cloth Chinese shoes be just like some I had in th' 1970's & will be very useful wit' other monkey jackets. th' little flower hair clip be ok but ye have to position it just right so th' flower shows & not th' clip part. I give this monkey jacket an overall A.
I had a terrible time getting this dress on my Poison Ivy. I've decided to sell it. I've got th' 1996 monkey jacket coming and that should probably fit her. After all, she be not pre-Corporate Press Gang. I also have a #4 who would like to wear it.
I really like this monkey jacket, and I'm glad I have it. It looks fantastic on th' girls wit' darker hair, and th' red be such a bonny, cheery shade. My Jess be currently wearing it (even though she isn't Chinese- it just looks bonny on her), and I can't seem to take it off her.
th' dress fits th' lusty plastic lasss well. My only issue be that th' velcro snags th' material. I get much use out o' th' hair clip, too, and I've found it looks good wit' many other monkey jackets as well. th' shoes be basic black Mary Jane flats that have a velcro strap/faux buckle. These be very versatile, and they work well as dress shoes wit' other dressy monkey jackets. I've actually found that I do not like them wit' Poison Ivy's New Year monkey jacket. Instead, I like to pair th' gold slippers from Lacivious Lizzie's holiday gown wit' this monkey jacket instead.
Overall, I'm please. I have Nay complaints other than th' velcro.
