I'm not very good at doing extensive reviews, but I will mention a few things about this outfit. I'm also unable to post photos.
The outfit has a floral-print tee, white vest, roll-cuff jeans, pink hairband, sandals, and a "Loyal" round charm.
The best thing about this outfit is that the cuff on the jeans can be rolled down to be full-length jeans. This was a very pleasant surprise--usually anything cuffed is sewn and can't be unrolled. The AG website states that the cuffs can be rolled down, but I didn't notice that fact.
In the catalog and the main photo on the website, the tee sleeves are pushed up toward the elbows, but they are full-length long sleeves. There are also three little buttons at the neck which are hard to see in the photos. These things are in the AG website description and additional photos if you click on View larger.
Maybe it pays to read the website description and click on View larger, but I don't always do that.
The tee and jeans are not skin-tight on my newer dolls so maybe AG is listening to the complaints about clothes that are too tight. But the jeans are tight on my chubby PM Felicity. The tee is a good fit on all of my dolls.
The tee and vest are made of t-shirt fabric. The tee is neither real light-weight or heavy-weight. The vest seems to be a thinner fabric. It isn't a solid white--the fabric is made in such a way that there are horizontal lines of two shades of white. It has large arm holes which aren't apparent from the front, but is from the back. It's a little strange looking from the back, but my dolls' long hair covers it up so it isn't a big issue for me. The buttons do not button and there is no velcro to close the vest, so it is worn open.
The sandals are very cute. The bottoms of them have a flower design and American Girl embossed on them instead of just being smooth.
I am very happy with this outfit and give it an A. Lots of mix and match possibilities.
Weekend Fun Outfit for Dolls + Charm Item# F0727 $30
When it's time to relax, she can dress her doll in this casual outfit:
A long-sleeved tee with allover floral print A knit vest with button details to layer on top Dark-wash jeans with cuffs that can be rolled up or down An elastic hairband for her 'do Strappy pink sandals to match A "Loyal" round charm for the doll's charm-keeper necklace
The tee is a nice mid-weight fabric with a Henley neckline and IMO the best part of the outfit. The jeans fit well but I wish they had a real waistband instead of elastic. The vest is my least favorite item, it's a very thin (almost cheescloth) knit with no body at all. I think the outfit would have looked better with flats but the sandals are nice and can be used with several outfits. Although they are listed as 'pink' my set is purple.
The best reason to buy this outfit is for the mix and match potential. Grade A
This outfit is just adorable. When I was a bit younger I wore outfits just like this.
The vest is so cute and would work well with other shirts. It is a creamy white color with clear buttons. The jeans are great! They are just plain jeans. There is no American Girl written on them or anything. I wish they were a tad bit tighter on the doll but they are still very cute. I like the fact you can keep the pants long for fall and roll them up for a warmer spring day is great. Normally AG would sew them so that would not be possible. The shirt is skin tight and ribbed with a pretty floral design as I said, it would work great in fall or spring and would look cute to mix and match. The shoes are cute, but as normally the heel slides off a bit. I can't stand that in shoes. Besides that they are so pretty.
I give it an A-
