I think she is adorable too. The only fault I see is that I wish the white spots in her eyes were a little smaller. Other than that I think she is really cute. She is kind of hard to get a good photograph of, but in person is so sweet. I like the diversity that her new face mold adds to my ever growing mini doll family.
She has the fullest skirt of all my mini AG dolls. I like the way it can be fluffed to stand out on its own. I like the colors better than I expected to also. The plaid makes it seem not quite so pink after all. I would say A- for the problem with her eyes.

The first thing that I noticed about mini Cécile was how soft her hair is. I'm afraid that may make it a little harder to manage in the long run. The curls are rather boisterous, but can be positioned for display with judicious placement of a straight pin. Of course that won't work for play. The details on her dress are really well done and I love the deep teal color. The skirt could have been a little fuller. I think she will look good with her hair pulled back, too, if the curls get too wild.
I would say A for display, but maybe B for a play doll.
Here is my Mini Cécile with the hat I made for her.

Just as I was trying to take photos of Mini Addy, it started to rain. I'll have to try again tomorrow. She just arrived yesterday. I think they did a great job on her dress. Yes, it could be a little fuller, but I really like it. It seems that there was some concern about length. My Addy's pantalets show just a little below the dress.
I also tied Mini Addy's waist ribbon tighter. That's why the buttons appear off a bit. I didn't notice until after the photo that I had made the front a bit off skew when I tightened the ribbon. As for the taffeta, I would rather have an in-scale plaid with cotton than a too-large scale taffeta. That may have been the only choices. Even AG has to go with what fabrics are available, I'm guessing, for these mini dolls. They may be able to have fabrics made in a large quantity, but these are limited edition dolls. I am amazed that they are able to get in all the details, down to the little bows on the sleeves.
