I'm doll sitting and restoring two dolls for my cousin, and her AGOT doll camle in this outfit. I like it more than I like the I Like Your Style Outfit that Juanita came in. The outfit consists of a red vinyl jumper, black turtleneck, argyle tights, checked scrunchie, and black boots. It also comes with poka-dotted underwear.
The tights are thicker than anything I've seen before or since. They are very thick and it would seem that they are harder to damage. The boots are almost the same as the boots that come with the grey jumper outfit--black, sturdy lace up boots. The jumper is very baggy on Abigail, my cousin's AGOT #5 doll. The turtleneck is a perfect fit and the scrunchie is very cute.
grade: A-; marked down mainly because of the baggy red jumper. I like it, but it seems that its awfully baggy for the doll.

I think it depends on the doll, because I have this and Laura usually wears this and it dosn't look baggy on her. But she is my plumpest doll. Anyway, this is probably my favorite meet outfit so far. I got if by itself with the acessories before if retired. I love it all, btu my fevorite part is the tights, they are nice and thick. In addition to the scrunchie, the acessories also came with a beret, a small metal trunk and a "lunch ticket", and some tiny money. The beret is black and has an elastic band at the bottom and is made of some kind of fleece at the top, it also has a ribbon woven through it that matches the scrunchie. There was also a little necklace that look like a book and has the AGOT logo on it. The oufit: A The acessories: B because I couldn't get the beret to stay on their head with out looking weird.

This outfit is really cute. I got it as a kid in probably '99 or 2000. But just a warning, if you live somewhere hot, take extra care of how you store it, because it can melt and stick together. Trust me. *sigh* (You can fill a book with the stuff I didn't know back then that I now wish I did!)
I love the outfit because there was a lot of attention to quirky small details. I love that the plaid in the stockings is also in the trim of the hat. I also love the black turtleneck which can be used in other outfits. My red jumper is large on every doll who has worn it and I have dult noted the advice of the other reviewers here and will keep it on ice this summer.

My mom just received a #3 with this outfit (red vinyl jumper, black turtleneck, tights & boots). She also received the accessories (hat, scrunchie, lunchbox purse, library card and the 3 dollar bills). Instead of the notebook necklace mom received the old AG necklace.
When we purchased the doll, we intended to resell the outfit. However; it is soooo much cuter in person that we decided to keep it! The attention to detail is just amazing and we second the other reviews here and give it an A+. No picture can truely do justice to this outfit, IMO.
I love this outfit! It was my first Today outfit (meet or otherwise) so it's pretty special to me. I have always loved the turtleneck and use it for mix and match quite frequently. I like that it's ribbed, which makes it seem like it's pretty warm. I haven't really paid attention to whether the jumper is big on my dolls so I guess it doesn't stand out to me as being too big. I like that the jumper has real pockets with real zippers. The hat is really cute and actually fits unlike Molly's and Ivy's berets here. I LOVE the tights but patterned doll tights are definitely my thing! The boots I don't use much for everyday wear but I used to use them as the default today shoes. Now I use them if the dolls are going outside because they have real soles, are black (so won't stain) and have stood up to mud, lol. I also love that the set is red... I love red!
