I have a Mattel version and agree with the previous reviews. Felicity looks stunning in the color! The unfinished edges do not bother me at all nor do they detract from the "look" of the outfit. The arms do fit very snugly and do not allow much "wiggle" room for poor Lissie but she looks just precious!

You know, I expected to really hate the unfinished edges on this, but I got it anyways since I love the overall look of the outfit and think Felicity looks like quite the elegant horsewoman wearing it. And I was pleasantly surprised... the raw edges don't bother me and don't look as if they're going to fray. She does look freaking gorgeous in it as well. I've used the skirt a few times on Josefina and my modern girls as well. My only problem is the hat. I love the look of it (pretty glam and badass at once), but my feathers seem really beat-up. Maybe I didn't pay attention when the outfit came late last year, but I pulled the hat out today and I noticed that the feathers reminded me of my neighbor's chicken after she's boxed a round with their dog. This is only the second time anyone has worn the hat and it's been in its plastic bag since I bought it. Urgh.
I have the pre-Mattel version of the habit from my childhood. The color is gorgeous and the embellishments are so detailed. It looks so authentic to the time period! The quality is excellent; I love how heavy the wool is. The jacket is definitely a little snug, but she doesn't wear it all the time. The hat is so cute and the feathers have lasted all these years!
