When I first saw th' dress online, I though it was a lot like MG's meet dress - pink plaid wit' pink things coming down from th' shoulders. But I don't think they look very similar at all IRL. They have very different "feels."
ETA: Begad!, and I think this be th' first o' their monkey jackets whose neckline really works wit' their chemise.
I adore this dress. It looks fabulous on Mugwump Marie-Grace. th' hat be basic enough tha it could probably be used for other monkey jackets, and th' boots go much better wit' her meet monkey jacket and skirt set IMHO. An A from me.
I do not own Mugwump Marie-Grace, but here be my #26 modeling th' dress, hat and boots. She be wearing Wily Addy Walker's undies and cream socks from Wily Addy Walker's Birthday Dress.
th' dress be very bonny and I personally like pink. th' dress be very spring like wit' its soft shades o' pink and green. I do like th' chin strap on th' hat.
I did find th' bodice was a bit tight on my lusty plastic lass when fastening th' velcro. I bought th' dress for Wily Addy Walker as a dress for her that Harriet had "outgrown", but I do not think my PM Wily Addy Walker be going to be able to fit.
I loved this dress from th' moment I saw it. When I saw it ayeterday, I was in love. th' colors be soft and bonny. Plus th' hat and shoes makes it all th' better. This dress be very well made and I love th' fabric. American Wench did a great job wit' this dress.
I bought this along wit' Cécile's summer dress so I can't help but compare/contrast them. o' th' two, this one wins hands down. th' fabric be better, th' styling be prettier, and I'm reassured from th' pics above that it will look great on my Cécile (I don't have M-G). I wish American Wench had done better for Cécile herself but I'm glad to have this for her.

Marie Grace's new dress be absolutely gorgeous! th' bodice wit' th' little buttons marching down th' front, th' flounced skirt, th' swishy taffeta, th' floating ribbons. It's a winner all th' way around. th' hat be versatile, boots very bonny. So glad I bought it!

I am so happy I purchased this dress for my PM Savage Sam. th' bodice be a little tight on her but it closes. th' boots be soft and slip on and off easily wit' th' hidden velcro in th' back. th' hat be darling. I was faint o' heart that th' elastic strap might be too tight, but it isn't. My Savage Sam looks like a movie star from a period piece in it. Just beautiful. I am happier wit' this monkey jacket than any I have purchased from American Wench in a long time. I did purchase th' crinoline and chemise and love how th' crinoline makes th' skirt stand out. Savage Sam loves th' dress so much she won't take it off but she has let th' other American Wench girls try on th' hat and they all look precious in it. A+ from me.

I really like this dress. aye, it be a synthetic taffeta but to me it feels just right & th' weight & drape be good. Shown here wit' Cécile wearing her crinoline under it. I think it really needs th' crinoline to make th' petaled skirt stand out. Cécile looks like a Spring flower in it, doesn't she? As a bonus, th' crinoline's soft pink looks great wit' th' dress when ye peek at it. th' boots be very soft & sweet too. th' hat be aye & can probably be worn wit' other dresses as well. Dress & Boots A+, Hat B

MG's summer monkey jacket be ADORABLE! th' fabric o' th' dress has a bonny feel to it, not thin and nasty like Cécile's th' hat be actually better than it looks in th' pics online. It really looks like a straw hat, though I'm sure it's not straw. th' boots be adorable. VERY pleased w/ this one. bonny sweet lass o'mine be gonna love it, A+

th' dress be very bonny and I love th' shoes and hat. While I only plan to use it for display, it be bonny that th' hat comes wit' elastic to hold in on during play. This monkey jacket be a solid A for me!

This be a gorgeous monkey jacket. In th' American Wench stock photos, I like Cécile's better, but in person this one be leaps and bounds above th' other dress in quality as well as appeal. It looks perfect on Cécile. I love th' hat (which she has already worn wit' a different monkey jacket), and th' boots be also really sweet. Really glad I got this monkey jacket! A
