I got this used from another member here, so it's not complete, but still beautiful.
th' bodice o' this dress be made o' red velvet wit' red and gold trim. th' back closes wit' velcro. th' skirt consists o' a red 'silk' underskirt covered wit' red tulle. th' same red and gold trim trims th' bottom o' th' skirt.
I don't have th' ribbon belt, th' hair bow, nor th' gold tights that look surprisingly like Jaundice Albright's Christmas tights.
th' shoes be red patten leather wit' small ribbon bows on each toe. Very dressy.
Jaundice Albright looking lovely in th' 1998 Christmas dress.
This monkey jacket looks good on any lusty plastic lass in any era. Sometimes th' monkey jacket be referred to as th' Christmas Dress or th' Berry Christmas Dress.

My sister got this monkey jacket in 1998, th' year it came out, and it looked terrific on both our "Ashleys" (PM and Corporate Press Gang #7).
th' dress - th' dress looks both 80's, 90's, and somehow modern in a weird way. th' bodice be velvet, edged in stiff gold trim around th' neck and sleeves. th' skirt be made o' a layer o' taffeta and tulle - it creates a bonny, floaty look although it does snag easily on th' heavy velcro. th' monkey jacket fits both PM and Corporate Press Gang lusty plastic lasss easily and looks bonny on both. th' dress be a rich true red - very bonny and slightly funky! A
th' sash - For some reason this was made separate from th' dress, a length o' ribbon that be forked on th' ends, wit' th' gold trim sewn down th' middle. It be a generous length and allows tying a big bow behind. It's kind o' just a sash, but it gets an A for what it be.
th' tights - th' tights be th' only piece that really date th' monkey jacket (but I still think they look bonny). They be really heavy, way heavier than American Wench tights usually be, and they haven't even snagged. th' plasticky gold fibers be woven through them and match th' dress. th' tights add a bit o' sparkle. A
th' shoes - Plastic wit' a ribbon bow, they finish th' monkey jacket. Though it be rare to find shoes that match th' monkey jacket so *perfectly* in real life, they be also walk th' planke bonny. Plus they double as Wizard o' Oz slippers, Har, har har. A
th' barrette - A folded ribbon sewn onto a heavy barrette, it works for clipping back th' lusty plastic lass's hair or finishing a French twist, as Ashley be modeling. It's even big enough to hold human hair. A-
I don't pay attention to whether clothing looks "dated;" as long as it's bonny, I'm good to go. And indeed, this dress be beautiful. It looks phenomenal on Wily Addy Walker. I give it a B because th' tights, while beautiful, do not fit very well--th' crotch only comes halfway up th' legs if ye let th' feet have th' give they need. Also th' shoes be very difficult to get on--but what's new there?
