I got them last year- They are fairly easy to put on but I agree, the color is hard to match with outfits. I have the pink ones that came out a few years ago and they are identical, except for the color. Both are adorable

I am so pleased that Caroline has a good overall set of meet accessories- especially since this is the historical I will try and get all of what I like, within financial reason. I just wish there was a few more pieces, but the three pieces that did come with it are very high quality, I'm not too disappointed. I LOVE the bonnet the most but the satchel and the top are awesome also, especially when you read the first book.
I couldn't get a good picture of the top but here are the other two items.

This is my first AG pet as well- I love his name. I think it is clever for the era he is from, if not a bit obvious- still very cute. The actual pet is okay. He is bigger than what I expected and I haven't been able to get Annabelle to hold him and take a picture but that is my fault.
He does look a little creepy but since I love this historical, I wanted the cat. I'd give him an A- overall but I love him personally.

I am one of those who really like this dress, despite it's issues. The decals are disappointing but I love the fabric and the style is wonderful to me. It really represents what I was hoping for in a "winter" frock with the cap top sleeves and the longer sleeve portions. I can't get what Mrs Bennet said in the 1995 P&P too Mrs Gardiner at the Philips Christmas party out of my head when I think about the fashion and sleeve-length. Yes I am a dork.
Anyway, the shoes are very cute and they fit over Felicity's meet stockings- which I put on my Charlotte (55) so she'd look more like Caroline, without the pantalettes of course since I only have the one pair and Caroline was wearing them. The stockings were cream not white but I couldn't tell in the pictures. The shoes were easy to put on also.

I ended up ordering Caroline during the pre-order deal with the Personal Shoppers. She was delivered on launch day but didn't get the chance to open her until the next day. Regardless, it was worth the wait! I love this doll, even though she has a classic mold (something that is in abundance with my collection) I wanted the new eyes and the blonde hair, plus she's Regency which sealed the deal.
Like the others stated above, she has aquamarine colored eyes, very light blonde curly hair and feathered brows. My dolls' wig is medium thickness with the shorthairs in the back, thank goodness. I am not skilled at doing doll hair but I need to practice so this is a great doll to do it with. The only issue with my doll was the people dressing her were not careful with her sock, and it was bunched up. I took them off the doll, and neither the shoe or the sock were damaged. She has the long body tag and the stuffing on my particular doll is actually perfect I think. Not overstuffed but not lacking anything either.
The meet outfit is cute- I love it but I think I will be putting it on another doll for when the modern dolls play "Regency Dress Up". Oh yeah- I renamed her Annabelle, her modern and historical character share this name. I am creating a character in a novel I'm writing and her name fit in the manuscript and with the doll. I read her first book last night and it was very well written- very exciting with lots of conflict to keep the story moving along.

I got these this past week and they are very cute. I tried them on my Penelope with the True Style outfit cord pants and the legs ended up over on top. They were okay but like the OP, I would definitely pair them with leggings. No thick pants or socks will most likely work with these boots.
Here is a picture of them (with the cord pants rolled up on my #24 Penelope)

I bought this outfit for my modern dolls. Thought it was going to go to Charlotte since she is my gymnast but Ruby thought is was more trendy and her style so now it's hers. I really like it overall.
The sweater is great but that velcro is tricky. I had to adjust it on Ruby's shoulders for it to look right and I can see a younger girl having a little bit of trouble with it. Once it is on correctly- very cute.
The skirt is a little tight to get on but easy to adjust once it is on the waist. Very decent quality of material . The leggings are alright but make this outfit complete I think.
The shoes were a little hard for me to get on but look good. The clips are great and can be used for many different outfits.
My grade is an A- (the "-" for the minor challenges being put on)

I bought McKenna's pajamas last week too- for my Charlotte (#55) to wear.
I really like all three parts. I'm a bit of a tomboy so the baseball type shirt appeals to me plus having the more generic graphic could go with many of my modern dolls. The 3/4 sleeves seem okay on the dolls (even though I'm not crazy about them for my clothes)
The pants are great- like already demonstrated do not droop down when sitting. They have enough material in the backside not to be too tight.
The slippers are great- very cute and cuddly even though my doll could not stand all the way by herself in them either. I'm not terribly worried since I doubt I'd be doing anything requiring them to be free standing (ie stop motion etc)
