I had my eye on this outfit for quite some time and recently picked it up on the Last Chance Sale for $12. I'm going to throw this review up here in case anyone else is on the fence about buying it. Maybe it was the scale of the fabric or the colors, but I really don't think this was a good choice for Bitty Baby/Twin. However, it looks excellent on an 18" doll. I think it would have sold well if it had been marketed for the bigger girls and/or Julie. It very much looks like stuff I remember wearing in the 70's. In short, GRAB IT BEFORE ITS GONE!
All the pieces of the outfit go on the 18" doll VERY easily and the dress is nice length. Unlike some BB shoes, the boots slipped right on my doll's feet, even with the tights. Below is a picture of my custom Kailey (whom I use as my 70's girl) wearing the Prairie Dress:
Here is another photo with her 70's BFF, Jessica, who is wearing Julie's jumper. Jessica looks great in pretty much everything, but this way you can sorta see the 70's look:
I ordered and received my Cécile a few months ago. (February) She looks much more like your first Cécile. However, I would swear that my doll's ringlets are even tighter. I prefer the tighter curls, but that is just a personal preference. I am considering buying a #26 and her hair would be more like your second doll's hair, so it would be nice for me to have a variety.
