The girl's is a lovely outfit consisting of a springy pink dress, ivory tights, pink shoes, and a floral "crown". The dress fabric is a nice lightweight inen, and the embroidery and ribbon detail make it especially cute--I like how the embroidery fills the scallops at the neckline. I personally don't like that the cut (especially in back) shows so much of the cloth body, but otherwise it's lovely. The shoes are very nice with flower-cutout detail. My only complaint is that the crown, while very sweet with it's ribbons and flowers with sequin centers, is small. It just sits atop the head without really being properly seated. I think if it were just a bit larger it would stay on better. Purchased for $12 at the outlet sale it was well worth it though! (Shown on Bitty Baby for modeling purposes!)
Sunday Best Outfits Sister's pretty dress has embroidery and puffed sleeves. Finish her outfit with cream tights, pink shoes, and a wreath of ribbons and fabric flowers. Brother has a checked polo shirt, linen pants, a handsome green blazer, socks, and shoes.
These are two of my very favorite Bitty Twin outfits of all time. While the original retail of $44 seems like a lot, when you divide that between two outfits it is easier to take. I was lucky enough to get Outlet versions of mine, which means there are no tights for the girl but we manage without.
I absolutely adore the dress. The modified bateau neckline is slightly questionable for the girl Twin since her neckstrings are set to the side, but we overlook that. It does tend to wrinkle in storage, as shown in these pictures. But it is such a sweet little dress that it's even charming with wrinkles! The details make the dress. We had no problems with fit for our wreath so that issue may vary from set to set.
The boy's outfit is equally darling, if a bit high concept for a preschool boy. I do like my Bitty outfits to resemble things I'd actually put on a small child. And, well, white pants, linen jacket, and green shoes don't quite make that cut. But hey, on a doll, it all works.
I can't give this set anything less than an A, really. It's the perfect spring ensemble for the Twins, and a joy to pull out each season.

I was able to get this set for a wonderful price on Ebay - less than retail! - but I've only had the chance to try the boy outfit on a doll so far, so that is what I will review. (Naturally I'll update when I've had a chance to play with the girl's dress.)
I love this outfit and I'd give it an A+. It looks very sweet with or without the little coat. The fabric is high quality and the fit is excellent. It looks like an outfit somebody might dress their toddler in for Easter, rather than a shrunken down too grown-up My AG outfit or a TOO childish Bitty BABY outfit. The style seems age appropriate but it's also visually interesting instead of being bland the way some other official outfits (and most BT knock-off clothes) do.
The only issue I had was getting the shoes on Tiberius's feet over the socks. I'm not sure what the problem was, and perhaps it was just my set, I just couldn't seem to wiggle things in such a way that it fit, so I ended up forgoing the socks and it still looks pretty cute.
You may find that having is not so nearly pleasing a thing as wanting. It is not logical, but it is often true. -Spock
