This is one of my favorite Kirsten outfits because it comes with the dress/apron/spoonbag/bonnet... all the colors just blend so nicely. My dress is from 1996-97... its held up very well, but Kirsten doesn't wear it too often so maybe thats why

Kirsten's meet dress is very pretty. I love the soft blue and scattered flowers. It reminds me of a meadow with a blue sky overhead. I have Kirsten's original meet dress from when I got her in 1987 and it has become well worn over time. My mom had to wash it and now it has a soft, broken in feel. The velcro has worn out and doesn't stick very well. I wish the collar and cuffs were really removable the way they would have been on a real dress from 1854. They don't get as dirty though!
I love Kirsten's meet dress - so simple and pretty! I especially love how the deep blue (but not too deep blue) dress brings out her crystal-blue eyes! The only problems I have are: 1. the sleeves sometimes wrinkle a little bit, and 2. the dress has stretched out a bit in the torso area. Other than that - great, practical dress for Kirsten!

I find this dress to be a pretty dress. Mine is from 1994. It feels thin, and I was not expecting the way the sleeves Velcro. I worry about breaking for some reason. I do think the bonnet and apron go nicely, but Kirsten has prettier dresses. Overall I think a B is sufficient.
I'm not sure if this is a good place to put this or not, but I couldn't find a comparison shot of Kirsten's Meet dresses and thought it could be useful! While my lighting leaves a bit to be desired, the patterns show up well:
The dress on the left is a West German dress, circa 1986; the dress on the right was made in Hungary, circa 1994.
