I got this outfit for my 70s girl, Peggy (#58). My stepmother said it was authentic to the time period, and it looks great on Peggy ("groovy," as my stepmom said when I showed her how it looked put together).
Shirt: The shirt is a long-sleeved, cream coloured mock turtleneck. I love turtlenecks in general and am very pleased with how the shirt looks overall. I was a little disappointed that it didn't either zip completely down the front or have some sort of closure in the back, as it was very difficult to pull the shirt over Peggy's curly hair. Regardless, it's a great shirt with a lot of mix and match potential for those who enjoy swapping parts of outfits around.
Jumpsuit: The jumpsuit has a colourful assortment of flowers against a navy blue background. As others have already commented, it's made of a very synthetic polyester-feeling material...and I love it (seems so appropriate for the time period). It's very easy to put on and is very form fitting (it likely won't fit the chubbier PM dolls). The belt is a nice touch and adds some variety to the outfit.
Shoes: Seriously, AG? No shoes? For those with other pieces of Julie's collection, the lack of shoes might not be a big deal (I think at the AGP Columbus, they paired it with Julie's meet sandals), but this was one of my first purchases from the collection and I found that I had a difficult time finding shoes I liked with it. I ended up using the current MyAG meet boots, and those work well enough, but given the price of the outfit, some shoes or a hair accessory would have been nice.
Overall: I love the way this outfit looks. The pieces pull together very well to create a classic, if simple, outfit. As it's sold, however, it's a little disappointing that it doesn't come with shoes or, well, anything else. Peggy seems to like it, at any rate. I give it an A- overall: looks great but needs shoes.
