Overall, I like Rebecca's Movie Dress. It's not my favorite, but still a good outfit. The bottom is a silky material with a lighter material on the top. It has a beautiful ribbon going around the waist, but it doesn't go all the way around. The ribbon has a pretty rosette on it. Unfortunately, you can't sit Rebecca in this dress. The bottom is kimono style, which makes it very tough to do much with her other than stand.
The flowers on the hat are very cute and realistic. I was slightly disappointing that the hat didn't have the flower going all the way around, but no big deal. The hat just looks awkward on Rebecca. It doesn't fit on her head and I find it very hard to get it on just the right tilt.
The dress seems very durable, I've had it 6 months and I haven't had any problems. For a child, this would probably be a fun set, minus the fact that Rebecca can't sit!
Overall, I think I got a good deal for my money. Grade: B+

Emily's Holiday Outfit is shown in the Molly movie. It is not mentioned in the books.
Emily's Holiday Outfit comes with: a pretty purple dress a pearl necklace a pretty pony holder lacy white socks
(My apologies the photo isn't amazing. I'll add more later!) Emily's Holiday Dress is made with a light material. It has a slim fit in the top and is looser in the bottom. The coloring is a deep purple that hasn't faded after years of playing and displaying.
The only problem I have had with this dress is that the Velcro easily snags. This problem is easily resolved by making sure that the dress is fastened. I haven't had any problems with the necklace being too short like other people.
There are lots of play options for this dress. Emily can celebrate Christmas with Molly or wear this dress for a tea party. This outfit looks cute on display, too.
Emily's Holiday Outfit gives you a lot of bang for your buck! I would recommend this.

Includes: hat shoes bikini top bikini bottom
I love Emily's Swimsuit! It comes with many parts, and I believe it was worth the money spent. Emily's hat is made of straw and has a pretty blue ribbon running all the way around the hat, with a bow in the back. It also has a fake daisy attached. Emily's shoes are one of my favorite parts of this outfit. They are peep toe sandals, with a "terry" look to them. I am glad to say they do not continue to fall apart, despite the look. Emily looks styling in her bikini top, which is made of a swimsuit like material. Her skirt has an attached "undies", and is made of the same material. You can secure Emily's top by tying the blue ribbon in a bow. I have found Emily's Swimsuit to be very durable. I have had it for about 3 or 4 years and it shows no sign of wear. It still looks like new! This set has many options for play, both for girls and collectors. I personally have used it to set up camp scenes with Molly, and to take many pictures. I find this set to show up well in pictures. I strongly persuade you to buy this set. I purchased it directly from American Girl for $28, and I believe it was worth it.
I also find this very historically accurate. Because fabric was needed for other things overseas, this swimsuit would have been a patriotic choice. Although I don't believe that bikinis should be worn, I would have during WW2, and given the circumstances, this is a patriotic choice.
