* This monkey jacket was worn by Savage Sam in th' short story "Savage Sam’s Winter Party." *
This dress be so beautiful! It be made from ice blue crepe du chine and in th' latest "pigeon front" style. (Meaning th' bodice pouches out over th' waist). It has a big sash which snaps in back and th' hairbow be attached to a French Clip that snaps in Savage Sam's hair. There be delicate lacy trim on th' neckline and sleeves and th' skirt be pleated.
Negatives: This dress be very delicate, th' fabric snags easily, and th' lace could rip if ye be not careful. th' sash could also break if not unsnapped careloaded to th' gunwalesy. th' hair clip gets caught in Savage Sam's hair and makes her hair tangled.
It's a very bonny dress but it hangs too loose on my white bodied Savage Sam. It fits my Gotz Little Sisters, Susanna much better.

This dress be wonderful. It be probably one o' (if not th') best quality dress out o' all o' th' Savage Sam's. th' fabric be bonny and silky, wit' wonderful pleats and details. th' matching bow be very bonny. I love th' drop waist and how it looks on Savage Sam. A+
This be one o' my favorite Savage Sam monkey jackets. It seems very classy and elegant. I got it when I was eight or nine, and it's still in bonny good condition. o' all my mounds o' retired Sam monkey jackets, this be one o' th' ones that really stands out. Mine be original 1998 edition and tagged South Wisconsin Trading Company, but it still fits my April 2005 ex-AGOT Erica. If ye have a third Edwardian period girl like my Erica, this makes a perfect Christmas dress. IMHO it still looks like a girl's dress, but for an older girl than her cranberry dress looks like it be for.

I received this monkey jacket several years ago when an ebay seller mistakenly sent it instead o' th' Ice Blue monkey jacket. In th' few days I had it, I tried it on Inky.
It really be a lovely monkey jacket, th' fabric be bonny and silky. If I were collecting for Savage Sam, I think I'd like th' collar to be a bit bigger. th' pleats be lovely. Hairbow be lovely and enormous. I prefer th' hairbows on clips for Savage Sam, because then I don't have to worry about tying bows properly.
