I just received this dress, and it looks cute on Bitty Baby. I agree completely about the shoes--next to impossible to get on (maybe a better fit without tights? And the tights took a lot of adjusting to fit even halfway nicely. I give the dress an A+++, the tights a B- and the shoes a D.

I too recently purchased this dress while it was on sale. I'm glad I got it but have to agree that the shoes are hard to get on as well as the tights are not easy to get on. I hate to see some accessories to outfits hard to get on especially when they are meant for a child to operate.
I totally agree! I love the dress and headband (TDF on AA BT!) The tights did not give us any issue but the shoes STINK!! Why bother! At the moment she is sporting the purple patent BB boots with it! A for the set D- for the stinky shoes!

has to be one of the most popular outfits at my house. It sees tons of play time and has held up well. The style, colors, and pattern remind me of Hanna Andersson or Gymboree outfit: very age appropriate. However, it also looks nice on the 18” dolls. The set includes a dress, tights, shoes, headband, and a book.
The dress is a light corduroy fabric. It’s nicely cut and well made. It Velcros up the back and has a faux sash. It’s fairly easy for little hands to get on and off, though they may need some help with the long sleeves. The dress fits well on the Bittys. It’s a tad short on the 18” dolls, but it still works.
The headband coordinates with the dress. In my opinion, AG hasn’t quite perfected the doll headbands, but this is definitely one of the easier ones. It fits well on both Bitty and the 18” girls.
I agree that the tights were a tad small when we first purchased the set. However, they have definitely stretched out overtime and can no longer fall into the tight category. I’m glad that they started out a little smaller/tighter.
The shoes are a major fail. They are a vinyl-like fabric with soft soles and Velcro closures. Not only are they crummy looking, but they don’t fit well at all. It takes a lot of effort to get them on Bitty’s feet. They don’t fit the 18” girls at all.
I got this up at the outlet store after my mom saw it and thought it was really cute. The tights were dreadful and the shoes weren't so hard to put on. The dress and head band looks great on the bigger girls too and were barely shorter when put on a Mattel body.
