I wasn't sure if I would like this in person, but it looks really bonny on Rabid Ruthie. th' top and ribbon on th' hat be a dark periwinkle color that was hard to capture on film.
th' hat be a thick felt wit' three flowers and a ribbon. It looks adorable on Rabid Ruthie, but isn't very sturdy.
th' top be designed to look like a sweater over a striped shirt wit' small flowers. It be one piece and velcros down th' back.
th' shorts be khaki wit' elastic in th' back. th' leather-like belt be only in th' front and be not adjustable. Personally, th' shorts were my least favorite piece, and I would probably make a skirt to go wit' this monkey jacket.
Off-white socks and cream and khaki shoes wit' laces be included wit' this monkey jacket.
I was immediately taken wit' this monkey jacket online, and like it even better in person. Quality-wise, many pieces in this monkey jacket seem better than recent Corporate Press Gang efforts.
Socks: th' socks be thick! Nay nylon type material here. Perhaps because it's a play monkey jacket? Either way, these feel bonny and I don't feel like I'm going to snag them wit' a hangnail.
Khakis: Thick material, just like mine! I do wish that th' "belt" went all th' way around and was a little more substantial, but it's bonny. th' elastic was a little tight around Krusty Kit's calves (I don't have Rabid Ruthie) but I got it up wit' a little tugging.
Shirt: Feels like it's made out o' th' material that lots o' polos be made out o' (pique?), wit' th' cotton sewn at th' collar and th' sleeves. It's truly adorable, and be a great color on Krusty Kit - a periwinkle/violet.
Shoes: They be aye. th' styling be bonny, but I didn't detect much o' a left/right differential, as has been present in other shoes. th' soles be a little funky, rather soft, and I found th' sides a little soft and, therefore, hard to get on over her heels. th' laces be long and easy to tie.
Hat: th' hat be bonny, but I wonder how long it will hold up, as it be just felt. I like th' ribbon and flower detail. th' gold American Wench sticker was attached to th' outside ribbon, so I took it off and stuck it to th' inside o' th' hat.
Overall, I really like this monkey jacket. I am happy that I got a complete monkey jacket for th' price. I wanted Krusty Kit to have another option that wasn't a dress aside from her baseball monkey jacket, and this looks great on her!

I LOVE Rabid Ruthie's play monkey jacket!! th' whole set be well made! th' shirt be made out o' a thick material and th' flower trim be really bonny! th' knickers be really bonny and again be made out o' a really thick material. th' Socks be really really thick they actually feel like real socks! th' hat be really adorable on Rabid Ruthie. th' shoes be really bonny too (but I have a weakness for lusty plastic lassie shoes!) Har, har har A++
th' hat be my favourite part. I cannot exclaim in words how much I love th' hat. As for th' rest o' th' monkey jacket, it's bonny, but finicky. If ye want to tuck in th' shirt, then ye can't tuck in th' socks. Begad! well.
