The fabric is extremely thin for something being advertised as a "winter coat." American Girl has made heavier coats that make this one feel cheap by comparison. I don't see this set as being worth the $34 price tag.

As someone who normally isn't fond of Julie's wardrobe, I was surprised at how much I loved this coat when it came out. My best friend picked it up for me for Christmas. I don't have Julie, so my #58 got to try it on. It's a very, very soft, almost suede-feeling fabric, with a thick fur collar and cuffs. I love how soft this is! Julie could sleep on it, it's so soft. The purple color is deep and vibrant - it looks gorgeous on my #58. My only complaint is I agree that the fabric on the coat, cozy as it is, could be thicker. The hat is a cute knitted beret, a lighter version of the felt berets that came with Ivy and Molly's accessories.
Despite the thin fabric, I still recommend this for Julie, Ivy, and late 20th century and modern dolls looking for light winter and early spring coats and hats.

Another picture of the coat and hat. I really like it, even if it is thin. The color is really pretty, and I think maybe the fabric is microfiber? I had a coat very much like that in the 70's with the brown faux fur. I do think that for the price they could have included some gloves/mittens, but that is the only negative.
