I love it. I have it on Gwen and it looks just like the catalog photo. Velcro and tights are a problem I discovered on Christmas morning. Solution is to put the dress on first, then the tights. Now that is a dress that will definitely go up in value after it is retired.
I just received this outfit for Christmas, 2009 and the blouse is very flimsy and cheaply made. the inside stitching is surged, not regular stitching and looks very sloppy. The fabric feels flimsy and cheap. I have read the other reviews. I guess AG got another manufacturer and they have done a crappy, cheap job on the blouse. The rest of the outfit is not bad.
I bought the outfit on Ebay and it is like new in box. The skirt seems to be made of nylon stocking material and is shockingly fragile looking. I have read the above comments and will be careful not to snag the dress on the tights or anything else. Perhaps I will wear gloves when I dress Mia so as not to snag it with a hangnail. That's how fragile it is.
