Caroline's Spencer Jacket, while adorable, was more than a little tight on my chubby MG, though it fit Rosalie (Cécile) just fine! Because of the style, the shoulders of any doll tend to look like a Linebacker... oh well! The peachy rose fabric is trimmed with a darker rosy red, very flattering and pretty. The fabric itself is thick, fuzzy woven material - like real suiting instead of cheap thin cotton. Yeah!
The hat is a tour de force! The style is so darling and looks especially cute with curls peeking out underneath. I personally think this set is worth buying just for her hat! It's just that cute! It's also quite firm, similar to the fabric in Ruthie's Play Outfit hat, I could see it getting crushed pretty easily so I'd recommend storing it safely when not in use.

This set is so pretty! The spencer is a nice, thick wool, and very well made. It does have a hefty feel at the shoulders, but looks appropriate when on. The bonnet is gorgeous. The traveling outfit with this spencer and bonnet is amazing! A+

Ditto the above from irishnurse - the color is gorgeous, and the fabrics used are just wonderful. I think the weight of the hat is similar to that from Addy's purple Sunday dress, although much softer fabric and not as stiff. The ribbon that ties on is a little thin, both in width and texture, but it does stay tied, so not too slippery.

I just love this set! Caroline hasn't tried it on yet, but the jacket is just a little bit tight on my Maddie (#24). Otherwise, it's perfect. The fabric is nice and thick. The hat is adorable, both on and off the doll. Grade: A+
