No picture of this outfit because I sent it back. This is what I found: The hat is ok, nothing special, but it's too small to fit my doll's head very well. I like the skirt. It has cute pocket detail & nice fabric. The tank top is hideous, too awful to ever use. The necklace is ugly & cheap looking. It doesn't actually look like any necklace I ever saw. The Keenes are very cute except that the straps were twisted on one of them and sewn in that way. So, all in all not worth keeping. A grade C- because the skirt was cute & so were the Keenes even though defective.

I love the outfit and it looks great on my Ivy, but I just wanted to note that after Ivy had the shoes on for about a month, they turned her feet red in spots. I'm not sure if this is the correct place to post this, but I wanted to make people aware. Otherwise, the outfit is great. The skirt has cute details, and I even like the camisole top. The hat is fun and reminds me of Kit's Scooter Outfit hat and the necklace is cute but a little bulky. steph.
How is this hat supposed to fit? I have to admit I'm a bit of a dunce about hats, but it seems to just perch on my dolls' heads. Granted, apparently Josefina-mold heads are bigger than the original type, and Mia dolls have tons of hair, but it doesn't seem to fit.
Anyway, I love the necklace. It's very cute and simple enough to go well with plenty of outfits. The shoes surprised me by actually being sandals - I thought they were closed on the sides! - and easier to get on than they looked.
The skirt has an elastic waist, no velcro at all. It is a nice fit and can ride low or not, depending on how you want it to go. The tank's straps fit right at the shoulder joints, which is awesome for those of us who hate seeing those things bare! Also, there are slits on the sides at the waist, dunno why, but they're there. I guess it's part of the style.
I was surprised by how well this color goes with my Mia-doll's complexion. It's a bit bolder in color than the pink from the Skateboard outfit, more orange, I suppose? and it looks quite nice on her.
Also, I'd heard that the skirt is orange with bits of pink in it. Don't believe these horrible lies. The skirt is orange and white with tiny specks of pink and green that I don't even notice unless I'm looking way close at the thing, and believe me when I say I notice details about things.
I really, really love the skirt with its pretty pattern and pocket detailing, and rate it an A. The straps on the cami top are too oddly placed for my taste and are very thin, as is the cami fabric in general. I could see a child ripping it easily. The cami gets a B- from me. The hat is a nice shape and fit fine on my dolls' heads; I tend to tilt it back a little. Hat gets an A. The shoes are adorable but are notorious for staining vinyl doll feet orange, so we carry them in our dolly hand when wearing this ensemble. Total F for staining, no matter how divine. I actually like the necklace quite a lot and find the slip closure to be ingenious, so that also gets an A from me.
So I'm rather mixed in general on this outfit. I love its more vibrant colors, although I do have to wonder what little girl wears something like this to dig in the garden!

Overall I give the outfit a grade B.
The skirt color, print, design and construction gets an A. I adore the hat, but sadly ours did not fit either. Very disappointing because it was honestly half of the draw for me. And no, I don't imagine this outfit is in any way at all practical for doing any real gardening.
The camisole was a bit plain. I'd have liked to seen some kind of detail added to it- sequins or a small screen print or a few rhinestones. Just something more to give it some pizazz.
The shoes- A+. Sturdy construction and coordinate nicely without being too matchy matchy.
Necklace- C+. I agree that button and loop closure is a brilliant design. Too bad the necklace itself is simply a piece of leather with a few clear beads dangling from a loop. It's just OK. A pretty flower charm would have been a better fit with the ensemble.
I have to add and agree that this outfit really sings on Mia. I tried it on several different dolls with differing hair/eye/skin combos. On Mia it really was stunning.

I got this outfit for Lanie. The skirt was what convinced me to buy it. I love the color, print and style. The tank top fits oddly. It's quite short, and the straps sit on the doll's arm joints. I think it's somewhat unflattering, because it makes the doll's shoulders seem rather broad. I prefer the skirt with Lanie's yellow tee from her Nature Outfit. I do like the shoes. They haven't stained my doll, and are a fun style. The necklace is cute. The little stone pick up different colors in the skirt. I don't use the hat much, but It's a nice touch to the outfit.
