I am probably going to sound super picky, but I have have a lot of issues with this outfit. I bought it because I thought it was cute, but...
-The pants are super tight. I like the material they are made of, it's like a silky soft corduroy, but they are very very snug on my Sonali, who is obviously Mattel and not that chubby.
-The sweater has real working buttons which would normally be great, but there is no other way to get the sweater on than over the doll's head. I dislike this because I am a bit protective of Sonali's curls and the outfit mussed her hair up quite bit. It was also a pain to get her arms through the holes. Her fingers kept getting stuck in the fabric.
-The buttons have pretty large holes (or maybe they just widened when I unbuttoned them). When I unbuttoned the buttons to put the top on they kept slipping out of the holes after I re-buttoned them.
-I feel like the sweater looks a little boxy once on.
-The shoes are ugly, but that's just my own personal opinion, hence why Sonali is wearing her meet shoes in the picture. I am also not crazy about the style of the hat, so that's not on her either. ;D
Sorry for all the complaints, but to be honest, if I had a chance to go back in time I would NOT purchase this outfit again. I am very "eh" about it on my doll. It gets a grade of a C- from me. I tried to take a picture but the flash on my phone is having issues, so I am sorry that it is so dark!
I also didn't "feel the love" I had for this outfit when I purchased it as I was trying to put this on my MAG#13. The pants were quite as much of a struggle once I got them past Kendall's feet, they did just slide up her legs and fit fine on her waist. The sweater was a royal pain tho. Her hair was an absolute mess once I got the sweater over her head and I seriously thought I had totally dislocated her arm once I got them in the sleeves. As Christie0316 stated, her fingers kept getting hung up. It does look cute once it's on but I wouldn't want to risk loosening arms putting something on my doll. I can't imagine a child trying to put this outfit on a doll. Oh ... and I also had to fight to get one of the shoes on.
If I had read this review before trying this outfit on my just received Sonali, I would have left it in the box. I felt she needed something warmer for the weather, but this was really hard to get on. I had just brushed her hair and now she looks like something I just found at the Goodwill. But cute now that it's on. She'll be wearing it until summer!
