I picked up this dress for another board member, but she kindly allowed me to try it on my doll since I was hesitant about it. I've decided that I do really like it! The dress is adorable! I love the detail of the cuffs and collar! The dress and leggings are a nice, soft cotton, and the shoes are pleather. The dress and pants went on easily, but the shoes were a bit of a challenge. The heels wanted to fold under the doll's heel when I tried to put them on. I finally used a plastic spoon as shoe horn to get them on Katia. They are cute shoes though, and the material is fine for pleather. Overall, I like the set and will eventually pick one up for myself. Grade: A- (for the shoes).
I would recommend that anyone buying this in the stores open the box and check out the skirt. As you can see above, Aaryana's skirt has diagonal stripes and dragonflybg's has horizontal stripes. AG's stock picture has horizontal, so I guess that's what it's supposed to be, but I prefer the look of the diagonal. However, I just opened mine up to find sort of in-between stripes that just don't look quite right. I may bring it back for an exchange, but I thought I'd warn people.
