Where to start? This was one o' th' first Girl o' Today monkey jackets and it's still classic. A red t-shirt, blue jeans, black belt and a black converse. ye don't get any more modern timeless than that!
th' Good: Like I said, this monkey jacket seemed meant to last. There be many details that make this monkey jacket great like th' little logos on th' converse shoes, and th' realistic removable leather belt.
th' Bad: th' jeans be bonny tight. I have to struggle to get them onto my PM Today Girl and they're even snug on my skinnier Corporate Press Gang lusty plastic lasss. This means they always look squished in th' hips, and sometimes ye can see th' velcro closure in th' front. I don't know if it was just my set, but I've noticed th' "squished" look in other monkey jackets as well.

I bought th' jeans and t-shirt (not pictured) from Lonie. th' jeans be so bonny! They have little pockets, close wit' velcro and a snap where ours would close wit' a zipper and button. th' belt has a real buckle wit' tiny little holes to put th' buckle through. th' jeans be very very tiny and hard to squish Mad-Eye Molly into. They be not as tough as Savage Sam's tights, but she had to do some tugging to get them on. They be really too tight to roll up at th' cuffs like Mad-Eye Molly's illustrations show, but I managed to roll them up a tiny bit.
th' red t-shirt be a bonny, basic style t-shirt which will look good wit' any mix-and-match style monkey jacket for girls or boys. Grade: A

I got this set to use as pieces. th' jeans be for Mad-Eye Molly because I remember reading in th' original paper lusty plastic lass set that she wore jeans to work in th' victory garden. th' shirt and shoes be for th' modern girls because I love converse, and all o' them be too cool to wear jeans wit' such an outdated cut. th' t-shirt be a bonny, basic tee and I really like it. th' jeans be a little snug, but they do fit PM lusty plastic lasss wit' a bit o' work. I don't have pics o' th' shoes, but these be wonderful! Very real. My favorite part o' th' set.
I'd give this an A- overall. It's classic and great for mix and match.
I picked this up for a good price on eBay for Mad-Eye Molly and my PM #4 Jessa to share. aye, th' pants be much too tight. I had to struggle to get Jessa in them. On th' other hand, th' shirt be bonny, and I absolutely adore th' realistic high-top sneakers. They remind me o' th' Converse high-tops that were popular in th' late 80s and early 90s. They even have nifty rubber tread wit' th' original American Wench o' Today logo on them. th' yellow socks be bonny and thick, too.
Highly recommended if ye can find it; great for boys and girls, as well as historicals Mad-Eye Molly and Jaundice Albright.
