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

This dress is wonderful. It is probably one of (if not THE) best quality dress out of all of the Samantha's. The fabric is nice and silky, with wonderful pleats and details. The matching bow is very nice. I love the drop waist and how it looks on Samantha. A+
This is one of my favorite Samantha outfits. It seems very classy and elegant. I got it when I was eight or nine, and it's still in pretty good condition. Of all my mounds of retired Sam outfits, this is one of the ones that really stands out. Mine is original 1998 edition and tagged Pleasant Company, but it still fits my April 2005 ex-AGOT Erica. If you 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 is for.

I received this outfit several years ago when an ebay seller mistakenly sent it instead of the Ice Blue Outfit. In the few days I had it, I tried it on Inky.
It really is a lovely outfit, the fabric is nice and silky. If I were collecting for Samantha, I think I'd like the collar to be a bit bigger. The pleats are lovely. Hairbow is lovely and enormous. I prefer the hairbows on clips for Samantha, because then I don't have to worry about tying bows properly.
