Finally, this outfit which we have seen and guessed whether would be for Grace, is here. As as soon as saw this , I had to get it and I did. It is really cute and very well made. Wish I could take pics, but I can't. The 3/4 sleeved, striped top is reminiscent of the "French Sailor shirt". The sequines and the cute little white bow on the top give it a girlish appeal. The skirt is adorable, but a bit on the thin side, as my daughter noticed the pink underwear, the doll currently wearing this sweet concoction is showing. The first layer is a doted tulle, the middle is a plain tulle, and the under skirt a very thin material, which IMHO could be a bit thicker. It features an elastic waistband, that I pray does not stretch out. The red on the waist band is nice touch. I am glad to finally have a white skirt to pair with other tops from my dolls' wardrobe. The shoes while not my favorite, are growing on me, though I probably prefer a black, red. or silver ballet shoe. Otherwise, not bad for $30.00 It is for sure has a French vibe to it and Tres Chic.

Here is a video review of Grace's Sightseeing Outfit:
I ordered the Sightseeing outfit on the 18th and it arrived earlier this week. I love that it has a Paris-look to it without being overly so and it's also great for mixing and matching.
The top is black and white striped with 3/4 length sleeves; the chest area is black sequined and it has a white bow on the top left. The shirt has the thinner velcro. It also has the Grace tag on the left sleeve.
The skirt is a simple white cotton skirt with two layers of tulle. It is on the thin side but cute nonetheless. The top layer of tulle has flat, fuzzy polka dots. I'm not sure if they could possibly fall off over time. The waistband of the skirt is a grosgrain ribbon I think. It's white with a red stripe; the back has elastic sewn onto the underside of the waistband.
The sandals are white with black soles and silver bows. I'm not a big fan of the one strip going down the feet. I would like them better if both strips were parallel instead of perpendicular to each other. I don't mind the normal flip-flops but with the way the dolls' feet are and with the bows being at the ankles, I feel like the one strip is too long and looks awkward. Other than that, the shoes are nice. They have elastic at the heel.
The top is my favorite part of the outfit and the skirt is my second favorite. I kind of wish this came with some sort of hair accessory or jewelry piece to tie it together but it can easily be paired with anything white, black or red. Overall it's a nice outfit. B+/A- due to the style of the sandals and thin cotton on the skirt.
I love this outfit. Goes well with the City Outfit which I also adore. Those are my favorite pieces of Grace's wardrobe.
I mostly agree with all that has been said. I like the black white striped top. If the bow is a bit too much, it can be snipped and a little safety pin added to the back of the bow for when you want use it and get more versatility from the outfit that way. I've done this with the PWP Berry Sweater/Black Skirt outfit from last winter and will likely do the same for the little black bow on Grace's skirt. Then one can mix and match these bows too! The sparkle and lace add something special to a very basic tee. Love the 3/4 length sleeves. I also really like where the neckline hits the dolls. Give the top an A+
The skirt is very nice as well. Could have been a bit more opaque so that Grace's pink panties did not show through, but I still give it an A.
I like the shoes, too. An A there. Nothing about the outfit to dislike on my part.
I actually concocted a similar outfit from an older JLY top with navy and white stripes and an OG skirt--Isabelle's white tutu might work as well. I added a red OG belt to the outfit and red shoes and was good to go, but decided I wanted the official Grace version as well. For $30, it's priced about right. No deal, but value there, IMO. I was pleasantly surprised with the price after what AG priced a lot of Grace's things, including wardrobe pieces.

Really love this outfit. Looks super cute next to the city outfit. Overall excellent quality, other than what was previously mentioned about the thinness of the skirt. You can see the underwear through it, so my dollies go commando when wearing it. The shirt is very high quality. The sandals are adorable, but the ones I got were a bit big on McKenna's feet and tend to drift around a lot. Do wish it would have come with a headband, looks nice with headband from city outfit. Really like this outfit, one of my favorites. Grade A
I love this outfit! The quality is great and it's super cute. I love the separates. It can be casual or fancy. I worry about the sequins snagging the tulle, but I keep them separate. I like that the skirt doesn't have velcro. I wish it came with some sort of small accessory.
