I just got this outfit yesterday and it is adorable! Its made of a very soft sateen (feels like super soft cotton). It fits on my doll very well and the colors really seem to compliment my doll's black hair. The pattern is soft white flowers on a lilac fabric, simple yet pretty look for spring.
It comes with a necklace with a little purple stone on it, cute but not necessarily necessary to the outfit, purple sandals with kitten heels which are very cute, a little lilac purse which is adorable and two barretts with purple stones- look cute but one of mine was very tight and hard to put in her hair.
It also comes with a book "Be Your Best", a guide to manners at special events for girls. I never really pay much attention to the little books, but if you have a daughter that age it's cute and probably a good resource.
Overall the outfit looks terrific though and I give it an A (would be an A+ if not for the tight barretts).
I absolutely adore this outfit. So happy that I ordered it and that I put it on my Elise (JLY 25).
The dress is absolutely beautiful. I like how the cut, the length, and the slightly shimmery fabric makes it suitable for a wide range of occassions- from house of worship services, to being a bridesmaid, to school picture day, to even a semi-formal dance. It flatters a Mattel doll's body quite well and works for a wide variety of ages.
The necklace is very cute and adds an extra level of formality. Clasp is not the easiest to work with- fine for adults, but I can see how a tween would struggle and lose patience with it.
Barrettes were not tight for me. I like the fact that they are like bobby pins- I am wearing ones of that style right now. And they grab quite a bit of hair. Very easy to put on- not afraid they will pull hair off.
Purse is cute and functional. Shade seems more blue-hued than the dress at times. I like the ribbon and bow. It is practical- not a clutch that falls off.
The shoes are the only part I did not care for. I do not know if it is the front that makes them look cheap and not refined. Or the heel that makes a doll hard to stand up while wearing them. But Lise's wearing white sandals with the outfit- and they complement it quite well.
The book stood out- reminds me of the old AG book about manners.
Overall an A. Would be an A+ if it had better shoes. Without the shoes, it is an A++++++++.

This dress is cute on #25, but I don't like the thing around the middle much. I also think the bodice should be shorter, so the skirt comes up higher. A rhinestone fell off one of my bobbypins, but this is a cute classic little girl dress.

I too like this outfit and it is good quality. At the same time though i don't like the way you have to tilt your doll at an odd angle in order for her to stand in the shoes. the purse and clips are very cute. i didn't have any trouble with the clips and the rhinestones have stayed on. The dress is a nice light lilac color and it has a very cute color. I agree with whoever said the waist should be a little higher. Finally, i dislike the necklace because it is quite long and you have to pull it back in order for it to look like a chocker necklace. Overall, this outfit is adorable for Spring!
Kirsten, Molly, Marisol, Lindsey, Mia, Felicity, Elizabeth, Ruthie, Kit, Claire, Samantha, Jess, Kailey, Julie, Emily, Nellie, Nicki and Bitty all say hello.
I like them a lot. They're a nice color and look good with jeans as well as the dress. However, because of the type of heel they have, it's almost impossible for a doll to stand in them for any length of time. I mean, you can get her to balance, but it won't last long since she'll topple easily, and there aren't many positions you can put her in, so photo stories are a loss unless you use a doll stand.
The heels are the same type as used with the Sweet Kitten Heels, but not the same as Ruthie's meet shoes or the boots from the Purple Jumper outfit. Check the Sweet Kitten Heels review for an explanation and photos.

I love the colour and style of this dress. From the contrast piping around the middle to the slightly pleated skirt of the dress. The fabric is light and summery without being thin. The outfit comes with a purse, necklace and barrettes too. My least favourite part of this set are the shoes. No doll can stand properly when wearing these shoes. Other than the shoes I would give this outfit an A+.
