This is one of my top five favorite AGOT outfits. The outfit seems very age appropriate and embraces the arts. The pieces in this set include: denim overalls, a lime green tee-shirt, a splatter-print overshirt, tennis shoes, and a hairclip. Almost all of the pieces mix and match nicely.
Unlike the jeans that came with the 1995 Blue jeans basics, the overalls are made of really light weight denim (similar to the Ready for Fun Outfit). This type of denim seems to fit dolls better than the heavier denims. The overalls are a little too long for the dolls, but can easily be rolled up. Also, the ends of the overalls are unfinished and fringed. While this may bother some people, it does give the outfit a more casual feel. I’ve even put a shirt over the overalls to make them double as jeans.
The green tee-shirt is great. It’s soft and nicely fits chubby PM dolls. The Today/JLY dolls need more basics, like this solid tee-shirt, in their collection.
The splatter paint overshirt is made of a printed fabric. The colors are vibrant and look excellent on dolls with darker coloring. While it’s the hardest piece to mix and match with, there are some possibilities if your doll is going for a 80s look. The top is almost long enough to work as PJ’s in a pinch too.
The shoes are really cute. They have the same splatter paint print as the overshirt. They also have colored specks in the soles, so that it looks like the doll has been walking on wet paint. The shoes mix and match nicely with most casual outfits. The shoelaces are long enough that they tie nicely.
There are only two things I’d change about the set. I would have preferred a hair-tie over the clip. The clip appears to be very fragile and doesn’t hold a lot of hair. Also, I wish that the print shirt had buttons instead of snaps to make it more functional.
The hair clip is has a cute stained glass look, but doesn't hold a lot of hair. It is also quite fragile.
This review by Mollygirl1944 was moved from another PT thread:
This was the first outfit that I got with Molly, and it is just about my favorite one! I love the detail on the overalls and the paint splatter print on the shirt and the shoes. I also like how the shoes have the AGOT girl logo stamped into them. The outfit:A The hair clip is made up of different colored plastic and looks a little like stained glass. I don't have it anymore because I took it out one day and tried to put it in Molly's hair and alll the teeth broke off! The clip:C Because the teeth broke off and is didn't hold a lot of hair. I don't know if this is a common problem or if it was just mine.
