I just ordered it. I noticed on the American Girl website it looks like a teal color but after looking at the reviews it almost looks turquiose in color. I am bummed because I like the greenish teal so much better. How can the outfit look so different in stock and in snapshot photos.
I think the dress looks adorable on number 55. I cannot wait to put my Brooklyn (number 55) in it. I bought it for her. I saw how cute she looked in it on the AG website and had to get it for her. I do not think the dress looks to young. Just right for a 9 or 10 year old girl. I think girls grow up to fast these days. Let them look like children a little longer.
Mine does have side bangs but they are so easy to comb in place. I am suprised that her daughter's doll doesn't have them. They are not real obvious. I think she is one of the prettiest dolls that AG Makes. I can see by the photo she doesn't. 57 comes with a hairnet so it would be reallly hard to tell if you bought her in person.
I give them an A+. They are nicely made. The top is a knit and the pants are a silky polyester as someone mentioned. The outfit has a good fit on the dolls and doesn't snag. The color looks good on any doll made by AG.
She is such a pretty doll. I love her thick dark brown hair. Some people think she looks like a tan version of Samantha but I think has a look all her own. She has an olive skin tone. I would highly recommend her. You will not be disappointed in her. She is a doll you do not see too much but she is actually one of my favorites. Her hair is the newer wig but mine has really thick hair. She is different from most other dolls and I cannot describe why. Mine is called Rachael and looks pretty in Julie's PJs. She also looks great in dark pink, royal blue, white and red. Mine has nice straight hair not the flip that many of the newer dolls with bangs do. She would make a really cute 70's girl.
I like it even though some people don't. I find it rather cute. I think it has more of an 80's or early 90's flare. I like the boots too. It seems like some a girl would have worn in 1990. I have it and I love the full skirt. I think it is made fairly well.
I love my JLY 29. I had no intention of getting her but when I went to AGP Chicago last summer I couldn't resist. She is a real beauty. Her hair is so soft and silky and fun to style. I like the brown hair with the medium skin tone. Alexis looks great in almost anything. She looks like a real girl.
My just like you 41 is called Natalie. She has beautiful green eyes and soft curly dark blackish brown hair. She has such a sweet face you want to give her a hug. I would recommend a pick for her hair to be styled. You won't be disappointed in her.
My JLY 33 is named Nicole. She has beautiful ringlets in her hair. Mine also has a fairly thick wig. I am not sure if her hair would be great for a young child but is excellent for collectors. I would say she has more of a strawberry blonde wig and is a nice contrast with her blue eyes.
