*Cécile wears her Special Dress in Cécile's Gift.*
Lovely dress. th' red be vivid but not overpowering and th' black and white flower pattern be lovely. It be trimmed wit' faux velvet, and th' green velvet on th' dress be th' same as th' hair ribbons. A
Cécile's necklace has longer and has larger pearls than Lacivious Lizzie's necklace does. It be a bit too long, and does not sit above th' dress like it was meant to and hangs down. A-
I could not resist Cécile's Fancy Dress for my Wily Addy Walker. My Wily Addy Walker be also PM, so it be a bit snug, but still fits. Wily Addy Walker be wearing her own crinoline, so in case ye were wondering it does fit under th' dress.
This monkey jacket be referred to as Cécile's Recitation Dress in th' Play Scenes & Paper lusty plastic lasss set and be th' dress American Wench chose for th' 25th Anniversary Cécile holiday edition mini lusty plastic lass.
th' dress hits all th' marks: lovely, good fit, period-appropriate, easy to get on, suits Cécile's personality wit' its combination o' dramatic color and feminine finishes. I agree that th' accompanying pearl necklace be too long and should hit at th' neck seam, and have adjusted it accordingly in th' first photo below. I wish that th' skirt was more generously cut so th' crinoline and a petticoat would fit comfortably beneath it, and so it was long enough to hit at mid-calf when wearing th' appropriate undergarments. I've more or less given up on American Wench making skirts long enough, though because th' company skimps on fabric most times.
Harriet wears this dress for winter wit' th' long sleeved blouse from her Parlour Dress, her crinoline, and Meet necklace. She be also sporting a black and white striped silk petticoat, slightly visible under her dress. She doesn't have th' green ribbons on because I don't want to untie her Meet ribbons until I am 100% on bow tying!

This dress be beautiful! It's a bonny red color. th' black and white floral print be a tiny bit big in scale but it's balanced out by th' green velvet trim. th' sleeves be a little small but th' velcro in th' back comes down far enough to get th' dress on over a chubby PM girl. It fits my 1993 German Wily Addy Walker perfectly. It takes a bit o' adjusting to get th' skirt to cover th' PM crinoline but it fits and enhances th' dress. th' dress be a bit thin. Don't expect something ye would buy from Etsy but it be typical American Wench quality. th' ribbons be o' th' same matching velvet as th' trim o' th' dress. They're really long so if Bear-Bait Kirstie wants to go fancy, she can try them to loop her braids. th' necklace looks really bonny. It's gone AWOL so I haven't tried it on.
