I like this dress except the headband is really really hard to get on. And to get it looking kind of normal. Otherwise I think it is very cute and great for spring parties and (dare I say it, sorry i'm catholic....) Easter.

I really like this dress as its muted colors look great on all the dolls. The material is a nice cotton linen, which feels nice, and the dress is embroidered as well. The set comes with lots of little accessories and is very cute! A great little srping dress! A+!
The headband fits snugly, so it won't fall off during play, and is embellished with an enamel charm:
The embroidery is a nice touch that really makes the outfit:
The shoes are awesome and have really thick soles:
And a sparkly flower on top!
The set also includes a little poetry book, comprised of poems that girls sent in to the AG magazine.

This dress is a ton cuter than it looks online or in the catalog. It's more of a muted lilac color than pink. The sandals are definitely better quality than the ones that came with the embroidered party dress, and I like the headband better than the little plastic clips AG is known for throwing in with every outfit.
I was debating on whether to get this outfit. I liked some of it, but was not too convinced about the brown.
Well, upon seeing it at AGPNY on a JLY 25, I decided to go for it. And boy did I make a good decision.
The border on the bottom of the dress is a very nice touch. The dress looks very pretty on the doll and works well with a lot of colorings. The headband is a very nice addition- not to mention pretty and sturdy. The length is fine- not too long nor too short. A doll can sit comfortably and would not trip on top of it.
I put on the sandals and corsage on Elise this time. Both are very nice surprises. I wish the sandals had a thicker elastic- but they do stay on well and are sturdy enough for my doll. The corsage looks very pretty and not out of place or extravagant in any way.
This is a really cute outfit! The shoes are [glow=red,2,300]ADORABLE[/glow] and very simple to get on. I love the colors of the dress, and the embroidery is a very nice touch. The little flower bracelet is nice, but I don't put it on a lot. The only negative thing is that on my headband, on the 3 pink "tear drop" charms, the pink is actually popping off! Just leaving gold behind. I only have 1 pink on left out of the three ='( That might just be my headband though! Lol, but a very nice summery dress, and look great!http://tinypic.com/view.php?pic=x3i9eq&s=5

I saw this dress on a young friend's doll and instantly fell in love with it! The amount of detailing makes it really special and utterly gorgeous. It is a bit snug on the Mattel doll's body; those of you with PM dolls may have trouble putting it on. I thought the dress fabric was of very nice quality. The bodice is lined with a silky material and there is a beautiful silky brown ribbon around the waist. The flower trimming on the waistband is a bit flimsy, so it may not do for younger children who are apt to be rough. I thought the cap sleeves were a bit skimpy as well. The embroidery is beautiful and so is the delicate lace trimming the hem of the dress. Overall, a gorgeous outfit, but probably not one for very young children. Looks ravishing on Josefina!! A+ from me.

I bought this dress a month ago from eBay and it came complete with the book for less than its original cost. I love the linen feel to the dress along with the pretty lace trim along the bottom of the skirt. The shoes fit easily on Jess' feet. The headband is nice but a little too tight. I stretched it gently before putting in Jess' hair. The corsage is a nice touch. There are a lot of nice details to all the pieces and I love the soft muted colours. I give this outfit an A+.
I got the Flower Garden Dress recently on eBay. I am happy with it except that my corsage is loose, so it falls off of Marisol's hand if I am playing with her (making her "dance" or something). I have to push it clear up to her elbow to get it to stay on if I am moving her around. Is this normal?
Still, I love the dress and the shoes. Very pretty!
