I recently bought this outfit on the secondary market. It's for my Nellie and boy is it tight! She is squeezed in it like a sausage! I had the wig on wrong at first. Somehow I had the bangs going over the curls behind the headband like it was inside out. I managed to snap the headband right in the middle. I may try opening the stitches at one end to replace it. It sits on her head and a couple of bobby pins hold it on.

My hat came with the top dented in. I contemplated getting it replaced but I think the problem is the box. It's too shallow and I don't know what would prevent the next one from getting pushed in. It fits Cécile's head nicely and matches her dress well.
The mitts are cute and mine were fairly easy to slip on. A child might struggle and get frustrated.
The necklace leaves me luke warm at best. It's far too long and the pendant is huge.

I bought MG's entire meet outfit plus accessories from a board member. I got a great deal so I can't address the cost/worth issue. I like the hat and do not find the bow to be weird or odd but rather unique. Adding an extra loop is something I would do when crafting a similar piece. The hat is very sturdy and would stand up to a child's play.
My favorite piece is the locket. I was pleasantly surprised that it actually opens! I didn't have any difficulty getting it on my doll, but for a child it might be a bit of a challenge. The length is appropriate. Cécile's is far too long. The star burst design on the front is pretty and gives a sparkly effect. I thought there was a crystal in the middle, at first. Knowing that there isn't one doesn't make me like it less.
The fan seems to be rather fragile. Since the doll can't hold it, I don't foresee opening it much and that should help preserve it.

My Felicity arrived today from an eBay seller. Her body does not have a tag and the back of her neck says Pleasant Company. Her legs and arms are squeezier than my other newer dolls. She is just beautiful!

Elizabeth is the 1st AG I bought brand new. I ordered her on the last day of 2010. Happy New Year to me! I think she is gorgeous. I had read she wouldn't have underpants because at that time in history females didn't wear them! She has a pair on now! Reading through this thread made me go look at her ears. I think I checked just in the nick of time. One of the posts is starting to discolor. The other one is still a bright shiny brass. Now both posts are out until I get them coated with something. I didn't get anything else as far as clothes or accessories for her. I am having fun sewing these for her.
I made her a fresh water pearl necklace, bracelet and ear drops.
So far most of the things I have made for her are modeled after things in Felicity's wardrobe because I like them better and think they look better on Elizabeth.
I really think a lot of Elizabeth's clothes would look better on Felicity.
