*The Fancy Dress is referenced in both Meet Cécile and Meet Marie-Grace, but no illustration was included in the books. AG included an illustration of Marie-Grace wearing the dress in its video introduction for the characters.*
As soon as we got home dd dressed Jess in her new gown ( which snags easy):
i wanted to try and show the pink in the hoop it is the same pink as in the dress. The shoes have a tiny heel also.
Fancy Dress pink and blue sateen shoes- satin with a rosette and they have a little heel! Price $28
I did not like this set at all when I first saw it on the website but it's really not so bad in person. However I would not have purchased it if DD had not wanted it. The style is very lovely with overlapping skirts and double puff sleeves. However, the material is rather thin. I rate it a "B".
I decided "what the hey?" and picked up this dress today. It was a great decision. Cécile looks so lovely in her dress, the colors compliment her well. I love the feel of the material, it's so silky. I give this dress a solid A.
