This is the meet outfit for years 2010 to 2012. Here's the breakdown: Top: A nice basic but I wish it was solid white instead of lavender. It looks too much like a pajama shirt to me. My dolls have never worn this since it came off the doll. Nice to layer over though. Pants: Very nice! Love the pink detailing at the sides of the cuffs, wish you could roll it down but it is very cute and accurate to what girls 8-10 are wearing. Would have been nice if they'd put some topsitching at the pockets and crotch but thats asking for too much! Undies: Plain lavender undies. Nuff said. Shoes: Easily my favorite part of the outfit. These flats go with everything! Worth getting this outfit on the secondhand market just for the stinkin adorable shoes. Love the bow on each side! Only problem is, when trying to get it onto my PM dolls foot, the pleather (?) crushes and you have to pull it back up and slip the dolls heel in. Very nice!!! Necklace: Cute, not much special. I put some human charms and beeds on it and it looks very cute. Couldn't figure out how to adjust it so I just knotted it. Of course, it CAN adjust, just I haven't figured it out My rating is a c+ but its a cute outfit and totally worth getting for the pants and shoes
I like this shirt alot. Its a nice basic shirt that goes nicely with everything. I wish they'd put a different, more verstile graphic on the shirt; this one seems too much like the design on the True Spirit meet outfit. I like this with jeans on my dolls and it makes a nice shirt to layer over. Great piece that retired too early!
I'm currently on my second pair. The first broke in a result of falling over on the doll's face repeativly. Anyways... I' m kinda iffy about this product. If handled carefully they would be ok,depending on the mold. I use mind most on my #40, and the Jess mold wears it fine. My Josefina doll cannot however. It's horribly crooked. But it looks awesome and realistic. For a collecter its fine, but not for an 8 year old. Check to make sure they fit your doll. Grade: B
Not enough posts about this awesome outfit! Here's my review:
Sweatshirt: Very versatile and very cute. It fits both my Mattal and PM like a dream. It looks great with jeans especially. The only thing is, it snags in the back like mad. Just be careful that you only put the Velcro DIRECTLY on the Velcro and do it up before you store it. Even still, it snags. Sweatshirt: B+ ( for Velcro problem )
Sweats: Nice quality, can't say anything bad about the item itself. It doesn't match with very many tops though because of the odd color choice but I like it. It's unique and goes well with the hoodie with out being to matchy. A
Shoes: Adorable shoes when you see them in the box but when you try to put them on... ooof! Yikes. The trick? Put a piece of string or thin ribbon through the loop on the back and tug the shoes on. Even doing this though it still doesn't fit my PM dolls at all. Grade: C+
Overall: Beautiful together... once on. For a child below 8... a big NO NO. For an older child, they might still need some help. Over all grade: B
I have #40 too. She's a cute doll and I definitely recommend her. But if your into hair styling, like me, get #30 instead. That's the only thing I don't like about her. But that's just me. Now, on to the review:
Hair: Like I said, nice pretty hair. Short, but that's expected. You can't do much with it, but I have short hair to so I get that. Sleek and shiny at first but after a while it frizzies. Grade: B+
Face: Love the Jess Mold! Some people say it doesn't look Asian. I sorta agree. Compared to other American Girl Molds it looks Asian; however stand her next to JLY #4 and bam! It turns sorta Caucasian looking. But she's super cute! Grade: A
Eyes: Her eyes are pretty, dark brown. Not much to say about them. Grade: A+
Face Paint: I love her face paint. Not to dark but not to subtle. Lighter than JLY 55 (as far as photos go...) but way brighter than PM dolls. It's really cute. The only thing I might suggest is that they used the brown paint at the corners of the eyes like they did Ivy but that's ok. Kind-of strange how only Ivy got that though. I have the brown corner thing too, its rather common. Grade A+
Body: Nice body. Joints are a bit loose but are ok. Nice enough to pose, just not the "Most" flexible and long holding. This was right out of the box.
Overall, great doll. Some minor funks but I still grade A+. Amazingly cute doll. If your on the fence I say "Go for it!"
