This coat is by far my favorite that American girl has ever made. The coat looks SO cute on Baby, Twin, and 18". The sleeves are a bit lose which leaves lots of room for long sleeved shirts and sweaters, but they are long enough to cover the arms of a regular 18" doll. I wish they made this in my size. The fabric is so soft and cute. I love the colors of the mittens and the flowers on the dress. I give this grade an A+ It would be durable for a kid, but still so cute over everything.
