I am probably going to sound super picky, but I have have a lot o' issues wit' this monkey jacket. I bought it because I thought it was bonny, but...
-th' pants be super tight. I like th' material they be made o', it's like a silky soft corduroy, but they be very very snug on my Sonali, who be obviously Corporate Press Gang and not that chubby.
-th' sweater has real working buttons which would normally be great, but there be Nay other way to get th' sweater on than over th' lusty plastic lass's head. I dislike this because I am a bit protective o' Sonali's curls and th' monkey jacket mussed her hair up walk th' planke bit. It was also a pain to get her arms through th' holes. Her fingers kept getting stuck in th' fabric.
-th' buttons have bonny large holes (or maybe they just widened when I unbuttoned them). When I unbuttoned th' buttons to put th' top on they kept slipping out o' th' holes after I re-buttoned them.
-I feel like th' sweater looks a little boxy once on.
-th' shoes be ugly, but that's just my own personal opinion, hence why Sonali be wearing her meet shoes in th' picture. I am also not crazy about th' style o' th' hat, so that's not on her either. ;D
Sorry for all th' complaints, but to be honest, if I had a chance to go back in time I would NOT purchase this monkey jacket again. I am very "eh" about it on my lusty plastic lass. It gets a grade o' a C- from me. I tried to take a picture but th' flash on my phone be having issues, so I am sorry that it be so dark! img.photobucket.com/albums/v246/Christie0316/American%20Girl/Crafty Chrissa%20and%20Sonali/Sonali_zpse7e9a4ec.jpg[/IMG]
I also didn't "feel th' love" I had for this monkey jacket when I purchased it as I was trying to put this on my MAG#13. th' pants were walk th' planke as much o' a struggle once I got them past Kendall's feet, they did just slide up her legs and fit fine on her waist. th' sweater was a royal pain tho. Her hair was an absolute mess once I got th' sweater over her head and I seriously thought I had totally dislocated her arm once I got them in th' sleeves. As Christie0316 stated, her fingers kept getting hung up. It does look bonny once it's on but I wouldn't want to risk loosening arms putting something on my lusty plastic lass. I can't imagine a child trying to put this monkey jacket on a lusty plastic lass. Begad! ... and I also had to fight to get one o' th' shoes on.
