I thought this outfit was beautiful in the catalogue. And it is a trully beautiful dress. However the fabric was TOO CHEAP!!! The skirt was so short it exposes above the doll's ankles, which was a very much a no-no well into the early 2oth century. Also the skirt could not fit over Felicity's paniers. My next complaint is holed buttons were not used in the 18th century. Also I wish this dress had separate underskirt. It is beautiful, but it fails the principle that american girl set itself up as. Pleasant Rowland, why oh why, did you sell your company to Mattel?
