This outfit definitely gets an A from me. The set consists of a red/ berry colored jumper with a white satin shirt, which is attached and is all one piece, white tights, red t-strap mary jane shoes, a headband, and a book.
The dress fits great, and looks perfect with our Bitty Baby's coloring. The fabric is beautiful and the dress is well made.. lots of detail.
The shoes are a red velvet, are easy to put on, and stay on just fine.
The tights are.. well.. just tights but no complaints there.
My only complaint is that the headband is not something you would put on a real baby, and doesn't stay on Bitty's head very well. My daughter decided that her baby doesn't want to wear her headband, so we don't use it with the outfit. Not a big deal, the outfit looks great without it.
The book is titled Bitty Bear's Holiday Fun, and has pages to color, and little activities, etc.
Overall, I would call this outfit my favorite out of the dozen or so that we have for Bitty Baby.
For Bitty: The material is very nice, thick and luxurious, without being stiff. The hard head bands, just don't work for bitty, it's sad for bitty that AG seems to be falling to this more and more for an accessory. T strap shoes might be a bit old for baby, but they are soft soled and match perfectly. Grade: A-
For Big Girls: Super charming on the big girls, once again the headband, is very nice for the big girls. The length works well and is not too young looking.
In Conclusion: I think these would make a great 'sisters' dress, I might buy another so they can wear at the same time.

This is another great Bitty holiday outfit. The set is fairly classic and well made. In my opinion, the style works for both the baby and 18"dolls. It includes a brocade dress, tights, T-strap shoes, headband, and book.
The dress is well cut and fits nicely on both the Bitty Baby and 18” dolls. Thus far, we haven’t had problems with the Velcro snagging the brocade. While I would have liked the blouse and jumper to be separate pieces, I don’t really mind that it’s a single piece. The tights are the typical AG ones. They fit well on both the Bitty and 18” dolls. However, they can potentially snag on the Velcro.
The shoes aren’t among my favorites. However, there are some that are far worse. While they fit both the Bitty and 18” dolls without too much tugging, they are oddly shaped around the toes. I do wish that AG would go back to putting soles on most of their shoes.
Headbands aren’t really AG’s strength. While this one fits better than some, I wish they’d stick to cloth headbands for the babies.
The book looks very similar to the 2007 activity book. The activity books have never seen much attention here, so I don’t know how this one compares with some of the others.
Perfect dress for the 18" dolls! This dress was claimed by the 18" dolls, so BB never even tried it on.
I love the brocade fabric of the dress, the red velvet bow trim, and the white satin collar and puffy sleeves. The headband is cute too. The style of the dress reminds me of fancy dresses we wore in the early 60's.
The shoes are red velvet and have a soft sole. They do fit on the 18" dolls which is always a plus.
