Sorry about the lighting. It's the best I can do in my "doll room" which isn't that bright, so I have to use flash. My Mia has had her hair redone at AG. I got her used on eBay.
The reason she is not wearing her "meet" is that I somehow deleted the picture from Photobucket, and could not find it again, so I just took another one. She has to wear pink as it matches the ribbons they put in her braid at the store.

I got this on the secondary market and don't have the entire outfit. I think it's a little old for Bitty Baby and I'm not happy with the neckline since it shows the neck seam. I think a rounded higher neck would have been better. The hat doesn't fit on my AA Bitty Twin girl with her hair in pigtails.

Here is my #41. So far I call her "not Ruthie". I'm trying not to buy every doll whose story appeals to me, so she is standing in for Kit's friend. I already had Ruthie's meet dress since I love purple.
She's my only doll with an "x". The person I bought her from didn't seem to be doing a lot of reselling on eBay and in fact had only this doll up for auction. She also didn't mark her up a lot. I think her explanation that she needed some cash was the truth. The doll was dressed in the Star Hoodie outfit which I had the worst time getting off her.
I have the Pleasant Company version of this outfit, and it's a bit big on my pre-Mattel #4. I have her standing sideways so she doesn't look so wide. Mine didn't include the ribbons or hair clip. I do have the gong and firecrackers, but my poor #4 can't hold them up. Needs limb tightening.

I've had this outfit for awhile. Just took it out of the box and put it on BB and then on my pre-Mattel #4. Got the Velcro stuck both times. The swimsuit will definitely not survive young children's play. But it works great on the 18" girls too, even the sandals. Sorry her glasses were crooked for the photo.

Love the pants. First to try them was my PM Molly. It was a real struggle to get them on, and then she looked like she had saddlebags because of the pockets. I didn't want to embarrass her by taking a photo. Getting them off was just as hard. Thought I would pull her legs off with them. Put them on my Mattel #10. Much easier. Here they are together with the denim capri pants.
I just got this set in the original packing material looking like it had never been unpacked. The only piece with a sticker is the table: American Girl. I also got an extra pair of chairs, each marked Pleasant Company. The new table has the raised edge, and the new chair legs are very similar to the older chairs, just somewhat slimmer. Chairs, AG on the left and PC on the right.

I had a terrible time getting this dress on my Ivy. I've decided to sell it. I've got the 1996 outfit coming and that should probably fit her. After all, she is not pre-Mattel. I also have a #4 who would like to wear it.
This is my fifth or sixth try. Just can't get the hang of this board.
I got this set on eBay, so don't have the book or toy. I love this set, but I love purple! The velour is so soft and huggable. And it's easy to dress the doll. The long sleeve tee closes with velcro in the back. Everything else just slips on. The only flaw is that the wool (felt?) clogs pick up lint. A for the outfit overall, but B for the clogs. (Big bear added since it almost matches. The cradle belonged to my daughter who is now 40.)
