I wasn't too fond of this outfit at first, but I needed another Christmas dress for my dolls. But, once I saw it in person I just loved it. The color combination is great and it looks very nice on my girls. I don't like the accessories either, they cost too much for one thing, and the only part I really like is the bracelet. This dress gets an A+!
My AGT 27 looks so great in that oufit! the collar is a little tight though...
I love my American girls and my rabbits

Rabbits: too many to name!
I'm one of those people who said "Bleh! Pink holiday dress? No!" when this first came out. But my then-7 year old daughter had other ideas, and I have to admit that this outfit has grown on me. I still see it as more appropriate as a Valentine's Day or general party dress than for the winters holidays, unless you dress it up with the party hat!
The skirt is adorable, made of a soft crinkly fabric. The underskirt is tulle edged with sequins, and I think it needs to be a bit longer for the maximum impact of the delicate edging. The top seems flimsy to me and it wrinkles easily but seems surprisingly well-constructed, if whimsical. The tights are a light pink, and the shoes are to die for.
The accessory set was of course sold separately and I didn't think it was worth full price since my daughter wasn't interested in the noisemakers, et cetera. She wanted the little fur collar, though, and luckily at the time it was available from AG for $7 as a replacement part. It gives another option to the outfit by dressing it up a bit more and frnakly, I think it improves the look.
Overall I give this outfit an A- because I wish the underskirt was just a tad longer. You can't see it if the doll is sitting unless you do some tugging, and it's the best part of the dress.
As a holiday outfit it gets a B+ because I don't think that it is all that winter-festive.
This is a beautiful dress for those who like pink and the girly styles. I love it. I didn't expect the skirt to have the feel it did, but it is fine. I love the soft shirt and the outfit looks wonderful on the dolls.
ETA: grade A+ This is one of my favorites! Picture: I think it looks great on #24:

Comment below is from agmom on a thread on the General Discussion board:
We purchased the collar only from the accessories. I think the collar makes the outfit, really a must have. This outfit is so pretty and made for play. I'm disappointed that the sequin under-skirt is not longer than the over-skirt, you can't see it unless you fluff out the top skirt and look straight on at it or from a distance, if that makes sense. The top, tights and shoes can be mix and matched, dds love to see what they can come up with. This will make a cute Valentine's Day outfit!

With my typical sense of timing (ha) I didn't decide I HAD to have this until it was long gone from AG.com. I'm very glad I changed my mind, because it's an extremely pretty outfit and one of the few really PINK things I like alot. I don't think of it as a Christmas outfit at all (partly because we don't have Christmas in Winter here, and the restly because pink isn't a colour I associate with Christmas anyway). In my dolly world it's simply a very pretty winter party outfit.
'Scuse me... I hear sounds of conflict over who is going to wear said pretty winter party outfit FIRST. Once that is sorted out I hope to be able to take some photos...
Edited to add: Alexandra won!
Because I can't seem to add more than one small pic using the (new?) attachment option, here are some I put in Photobucket:
This outfit is cute and definitely an explosion of pink...maybe too pink for my taste, but nonetheless...my dolls have gotten their wear out of it. The sweater is darling and looks great not only with that skirt, but with jeans and Nicki's pink riding pants. I really love the sequined criss-cross butterfly detailing. The skirt consists of a crinkly pink over layer, with a lacy tulle under layer. It makes for a very elegant piece of clothing. I love the tights and they definitely come in handy during the cold winter months. The shoes...now...I'm obsessed with the shoes. I love the style and sequin detailing on them. I'd give this outfit an A+; the quality, IMO, is outstanding.
