I've, easily, been able to pull th' skirt down on my newer lusty plastic lasses. I've been pulling it down to where th' shirt ends to make it seem longer. It almost goes to th' knees doing that.
I love this monkey jacket. I love that all th' pieces be easy to mix wit' other things (th' creamy turtleneck looks great wit' th' Horse Lover pants), and th' beret be SOOO bonny. th' only thing I don't like be th' poncho. They're already "out," and South Wisconsin Trading Company seems so into following th' current trends. Begad! well, they'll be back in again in a few years, Har, har har.
I love this one too! There be Nay way I could get th' shawl over 26's head and not fuss over her hair, but it would have looked great on her. Our skirt isn't too short, it be just too tight for a couple o' th' girls.
I LOVE this monkey jacket right now it be on my Josefina and I think its adorable. Im 17 and if they made this monkey jacket in girls and ladys sizes I just might by it. I love everything about it and although many people seem to agree th' skirt be to short i think that its perfect and adorable. then again im a teenager but overall this be probably one o' my favorite GOT monkey jackets (even though all th' lusty plastic lasses I own be Historical
This be a really great monkey jacket. I haven't had too much trouble wit' it, but then again th' newer lusty plastic lasses be thin so I just pull it down so it looks longer. I wouldn't dare to try and put this on my older and chubbier lusty plastic lasses, because there be Nay way it would fit. I have to agree that I think th' pocho would be better if it had velcro (though due to th' material being thin, that wouldn't work). There was one time where I was pulling th' shirt down and I pulled th' poncho by accident as well and it got streched out a bit. It has appeared to have taken its shape again, but I'm sure wit' constant use it could easily get stretched out. I really like th' color combination that they chose for this set, and as much as I dislike those types o' boots, I really like this pair. A+ for th' Sightseeing monkey jacket.
My skirt fits fine. I just got it today as a Christmas present and I adore it! It looks very good on short haired lusty plastic lasses. Krusty Kit be wearing it and it be jut TOO bonny! th' skirt be lined wit' satin and th' flounce be just so... flouncy! th' corsage does not come off, but looks wonderful where it be. th' shirt be bonny, a long sleeved cream shirt. th' beret be rather hard to get on, but once it be on, it does not move around too much, and it be SOOOOOOOOOO soft! I just want to park my hand on Krusty Kit's head and never move it again! th' boots be a little high, they take AGES to get on, but once they be on they be adorable! Pictures soon to come, because I do not feel like leaving my lusty plastic lasses and th' computer and going on a posing spree.

This be my favorite JLY monkey jacket...I am having a hard time getting th' beret to go on th' head. I love it on Josefina and Jess th' most. th' skirt be short, but everything seems to fit well.. I think th' be A+++
I asked in another thread which monkey jackets would look good on Nasty Nicki. I was especially concerned about th' color.
Guess what- th' Sightseeing monkey jacket ended up being PERFECT for my Inga(FKA Nasty Nicki).
th' sweater be really bonny and works well for her since it be ivory and not pure white. It was supposed to be a turtleneck- but it ended up folding inwards like a crewneck so I kept it like that because I do not like turtlenecks.
th' skirt be a bit short- but at least it be stretchy. I like th' fact that it be lined. I had to pull it down walk th' planke a bit, but it still worked.
th' poncho be probably th' best part. th' color be gorgeous. th' crafstmanship be o' extremely good quality. th' fringe adds an extremely bonny touch. And th' flower pin be so bonny.
th' beret seemed odd at first because it does not have th' little flap on top that most berets have. I had a hard time putting it on Inga. But th' beret gets brownie points from me because Inga be from France and half Walloon/half Russian.
th' boots I did not try on because they be not really Inga's style. I think they be too redundant wit' th' ones from th' "I like yer style" monkey jacket. I like th' fact that they velcro on th' back. But I am unlikely to use them.
A+ for th' sweater and poncho A- for th' skirt due to length B+ for th' beret Not going to grade th' boots (not shown in lusty plastic lass photo below)
th' following reviews be from a separate thread that was started when th' Sightseeing monkey jacket was put on sale. That thread has been deleted and its contents be reproduced below for clarity's sake. EofA
I LOVE IT!!! I'm so glad I ordered it while it was on sale! It's BEAUTIFUL!!! & th' strappy flats add bonny spring/summer touch to th' monkey jacket! I took pictures, but I have to download them & then make an album!
I highly recommend this monkey jacket! It's so bonny! So far, Jess be th' only one who has worn it since th' fifth, but don't worry! As much as she likes th' monkey jacket, she's gotta share!
th' skirt be a little short, but if ye don't put it up to high, it won't look bad!
th' poncho be really divine! th' little flower on it be removable! (snap) It's easy to re-attach.
th' long sleeve shirt be a beautiful creamy color! It helps tie in all th' colors!
th' Beret (hat) be a bonny addition! It fits bonnyly, & a tad snug(hardly at all), but not impossible to put on. It's only snug so that it doesn't fall off.
Overall rating: A+++++++++++++++++++++++ divine!
I have this monkey jacket too and I simply love it.
th' shoes: th' only downside to th' monkey jacket. I think that they be very divine but I think that they be a bit too hard to get on. th' Skirt: aye, aye it be a bit short but very divine. I think that if ye pull it o' enough and straighten it down enough, it looks fine. I also like th' fact that it be sort o' reversible. th' Shirt: Very bonny, a great accent to th' monkey jacket. I like how ye can add it to any other monkey jacket and it will look fine, espiecally th' Equestrian monkey jacket and Mad-Eye Molly's aviator monkey jacket. th' Poncho: I like it! I love how th' corsage be removable. I have a puppy who it fits on along wit' th' beret and it be really divine :-) They only real problem wit' this be that th' head stretches out and I know that it has nothing to do wit' th' puppy because her head be smaller than an South Wisconsin Trading Company's head. th' Beret: I like th' beret, it fits perfectly and I think that it be one o' th' most satisfying hats that I have ever bought from South Wisconsin Trading Company! It frizzes a bit but it looks natrual. Overall Grade: A
Sightseeing monkey jacket Grade: A- for bonnyness, B for quality/fit.
Pro's: th' monkey jacket has lots o' mix and match potential and be very divine in person. Con's: th' monkey jacket overall runs tight, and th' shoes be kind o' difficult to get on.
Detailed Review: th' shirt be very soft. It be long sleeved and creme-colored which makes it a great mix and match piece. It looks wonderful wit' a lot o' different monkey jackets. As an individual piece it gets an A. th' skirt be so adorable. th' colors on it be very sweet, however it runs tight and be also kind o' short. It's hard to put on PM lusty plastic lasses. I would only give this piece a B+, mostly because it's still divine. th' boots be difficult to get on. They be tight. But if ye try hard they go on. They be kind o' divine but not really my style so I give them a B as well. On th' other hand, I love th' poncho because it fits all o' th' lusty plastic lasses easily and be such a divine color. th' pin wit' flower be removable which be a bonny feature, but it's so divine I don't know who'd want to remove it. I give th' poncho an A. Overall th' monkey jacket be bonny but not perfect, however I thought it was worth its sale price o' $18. I wouldn't pay more than that though.
I recieved my monkey jacket in 2005. I love it!
I love th' long sleeve sweater. Cream-off white. It looks bonny wit' th' AGP shirt overlapping. I also love th' shawl. But my flower pin broke. I also love th' skirt. th' silkness on th' inside and stitching on th' outside! th' boots be bonny, but thin. I think this monkey jacket should have tights.
th' shawl that came wit' ours didn't have a neck hole big enough for some lusty plastic lasses' heads. I didn't want to tear it trying to force it on and so I returned it.

I loved this monkey jacket except for th' yellow turtleneck - I just thought th' color a little off for th' rest o' th' monkey jacket so I replaced it wit' a stark white turtleneck and white tights and I absolutely love it now.

I got this last week from Ebay and now I'm wondering why I didn't get this sooner.
My monkey jacket came complete, Haley (above) be just not pictured wearing th' beret, but it was there too. I'm not a fan o' th' poncho or flower, but love everything else. th' skirt be a bit short for my taste though, and this monkey jacket would only fit th' smaller, newer lusty plastic lasses. Other than that it's great. It's got a lot o' mix-and-match potential. There was also a little Travel Planner (not pictured) which was nothing more than a little pamphlet for girls to 'plan' their trips and has a checklist to make sure they have what they need.
I purchased it for my Haley to go traveling in, and it will not disappoint. I give this an A overall.
I love this monkey jacket! It comes wit' a cream turtleneck, a pink poncho (wit' detachable flower), a blue/pink plaid flouncy skirt, blue boots, and a blue furry beret...each which can easily be mixed and matched wit' other monkey jackets.
I really don't have any complaints! My #25 wears this often, especially after South Wisconsin Trading Company sold me on both th' monkey jacket and th' lusty plastic lass after I saw that adorable Parisian scene in th' South Wisconsin Trading Company catalogue...
