This is my favorite of Samantha's dresses, probably because Samantha Saves the Day is my favorite of her books. Also, though, it's a very well-made dress. The fabric feels thick and heavy, and the trimming and ribbons have held up over time. The one major problem would be the black ribbon on the back of the dress, which started to fray and eventually, I replaced it. I haven't had any problems with the ribbon on the tam. In fact, the dress and tam really looks like they were made just yesterday! A grade of A!
I wanted to point out that I've owned middy boots that have wooden circle heels. Those boots were purchased off eBay and came with a complete set of Samantha's other things, all in original PC boxes. Since the boots came off eBay, I can't 100% confirm the authenticity; however, since they came with a whole bunch of other Samantha items that look authentic, I feel like the boots themselves are authentic.
