McKenna's warm-up outfit just happens to be my favorite outfit of her collection, so I had to get the starter set to get this outfit! Seeing the online pictures of her in the fishtail pigtail braids is one of the reasons I caved and bought McKenna. Please excuse the messy braid; it is my first time ever braiding hair--and I'm 28! My mom never taught be how to braid growing up, and I am quite proud of my messy braid! I tried to hide her wig cap by alternating sections of hair for the part, which only made it more messy and still didn't cover the wig cap well.
The drip-dye pink to orange jacket fits very well, but seems a little tight to actually go over shirts, such as her gymnastics t-shirt or leotard. Reason for the minus.
Love the pants. They are made out of a windbreakertype of material. I was worried that because they are white, color clothes would show through, but McKenna's is wearing her underwear underneath, and I can't see them.
Sneaks: super cute. Very easy to put on. What can I say, I love doll shoes!
Ponytail holders: nothing special, but match nicely. Wish they seemed a bit more sturdy. They seem like they might stretch out over time/use.

I love the jacket. It fits well, but I haven't tried a shirt on underneath it yet. Anyone notice that the jacket on the hairstyle card has an orange zipper pull, but the actual jacket has a silver one?
The pants are pretty nice, I like cinched part at the ankles. The shoes are cute too and have elastic laces. I like the colors and details.

I love this outfit! At first, I thought the mixture of colors was a bit odd, but it grew on me. The jacket fits well, even over a tee. The pants are adorable and surprisingly (to me, anyway), are not see-through. The shoes were very hard to get on at first, but after a while they stretched out and are now fairly easy to put on. I give this outfit an A.

I love this outfit! It's so adorable, and I love the little sneakers! I rate it an A-. The pants cling to my doll's panties, meaning I have to pull and yank up their panties before I can redress them. I also wish that it came with a shirt, you know a corresponding piece for those whose only doll would be McKenna. But other than that I love the outfit, and can find so many uses for it.

My sister owns this but ours isn't lined. Is this the case with anyone roses? I much prefer it on her 55 as I don't think the collies suit McKenna but it is one of mckennas nicer outfits (better quality then I was expecting from a free outfit). This set was actuly just worth getting for the shoes, I adore them!
My Girls - Emily, Claire (Marie Grace), Julie My sisters dolls - Fern (55), McKenna (GOTY 2012)
Ehhh... McKenna.. do you have eyes? Orange and purple.. Orange and purple.. sorry but.. WHY? I dunno, being english but do americans wear orange and purple?? The jacket is... well.. i hate to say it.. ugly! unlined, bad colour scheme and... >_< i dont put it on my dolls, i only use the trousers and shoes. oh well, it was free!
The trousers are okay, i like to pair them with a white t-shirt.. i dont know why! the shoes are ADORABLEEE! Fern (55) likes to wear them when she goes hiking because they have more grip then the hiking boots, but McKenna wears them most! i have a mat thing from ikea which i use for McKenna to do gymnastics on.
Overall for a free outfit its ok. I would prefer to have a t-shirt instead of that.. bleugh.. thing, but oh-well. The trousers and shoes are cute! overall A- for the jacket

I saw this outfit in Mckenna's release catalog and I knew I had to get it. I like the vivid and contrasting colors of the jacket and how they don't necessarily match. The zipper is silver unlike the orange one pictured on the included hairstyle card. Pants are not surprisingly thin and are appropriate material for work-out bottoms. A.
