I love this set. I don't mind the plastic buckles on the shoes and I don't mind the middle piece being plastic either. This dress makes me think of Dowton Abbey. I think it's very appropriate for the time. Here is my Mary wearing her new dress.
Dress A+. I like the two fabrics they used for the dress. This dress is supposed to be worn during the holiday season but honestly, I think it makes a nice spring dress. I associate periwinkle with spring.
Headband A. Some have argued that the headband is hard to get on. I didn't have too much difficulty getting it on. It does make your doll's hair a little messy but nothing a little brush and a spritz of water can't fix. I didn't give it an A+ because there is a big AG tag that you have to tuck in once it's on.
Stocking and shoes A. Just your standard stockings. I think they are a bit strechier compared to older stockings but then again I haven't bought stockings in awhile. I love the double straps of the shoes. They attach with velcro.
Momma made this beautiful outfit for Addy’s spelling bee at school. It includes: A sky-blue peplum jacket with bell sleeves and a white Peter Pan collar A bell skirt with black trim to match the jacket A pair of matching black velvet ribbons on hair combs $34
A+ for accuracy and quality. As soon as this dress was released, I knew I had to have it! I don't have her original blue school dress to compare but I personally favor this one a little more. This outfit goes really well with her new accessory set!
When Addy goes out walking in Philadelphia, she always makes sure to bring her favorite accessories: A bonnet with a black-and-white gingham ribbon A patchwork-print bag A faux cowrie shell necklace brought from Africa by her great-grandmother $24
I absolutely LOVE this set. I never got around to getting her original meet accessories but honestly waiting too late made up for it. I do think she should still have her gourd but I guess AG felt it wasn't neccesary. I rate it an A+!
Love this outfit! So glad I bought it. I would definitely give it an A. The fabric of the dress is quite thin but it's perfect for outdoor summer labor. The mob cap with the string and pink ribbon give the dress a nice touch. I wonder why Lissie never had a string around one of her mob caps. Anywho, my last comment is on the boots. Love the color but they were definitely hard to get on. What I learned is that you have to loosen the strings and stretch out the tongue before putting it on. It slips on so much better after you do this. I agree that the laces are much too short to tie.
For anyone who has Cécile or Marie-Grace you HAVE to get this for them. It makes a huge difference in appearence of the dresses. I'm so glad I got it. I loved it as soon I saw it. It's a must have for all C and MG collectors. I'll post pictures soon!
LOVE this! I give it an A. I have the Mattel version and it's so soft and thick. Hell, even I would love a cloak like this. My Lissie just loves wearing this all winter long. It's a must have for all Felicity collectors.
My best friend got her for her niece this past Christmas. Although she's a cutie I didn't find her to have much play value. Perhaps it's just me because I'm not use to dolls with short hair. Her hair is very soft and silky but doesn't have too much style potential. Her ear plugs really don't bother me. I can see why collectors would have a problem with it but I don't think kids really care. My friend's niece didn't notice them.
Her outfit is ok. I like the shirt the most. The pants weren't too bad either. I think I like them better without the boots. I think her undies are the worst part of the outfit. I like the boots but not with the the pants.
Doll- B Outfit-B

She is absolutely stunning. A must have for any historical collector. The only thing I can complain is her hair. It gets a tad bit frizzy and her sausage curls can look a bit uneven sometimes. These little things though are not enough to give her a A-. I give her an A.
I got my new Lissie over a month ago. I'm over all pleased with her.
Hair- Flawless. The wig is very thick like Elizabeth's and I love the color too. A little darker than the PM's but still pretty. Her hair is just too pretty to leave in a ponytail all the time, so there will be plenty of styling with her Grade A++++
Eyes- Very snappy green. More snappy than the PM's. I have to say though her eyes aren't that intense like I've seen on some photos here and there. I love them and it makes her look edgy LOL A-
Body- Her limbs aren't too tight. I'm not sure if this is a new thing but her head has a slight tilt to the right. I keep pushing her head to other side hoping it might just go away on its own but if not oh well. Grade A-
The dress- Was not expecting anything that great from it. After reading the reviews here I knew the dress wouldn't be that great of quality. I like the color and the patterns. The fabric should be cloth and not wind break material. Grade C
Pics to come soon!

I have the PM version of this outfit and I too didn't think I was going to like it but I'm so glad my grandma gave it to me as a gift. What I love most about it is the blouse. Its timeless by itself. I love using it for all time periods.

This dress is stunning and actually looks good on any doll! Its very soft and has a soft blue color. It truly resembles what a summer dress should look like. I recommend anyone getting it even if you don't have Addy!

She is one of the most beautiful Mattel dolls out there. I normally like PM dolls better but I think the Mattel Addy is so much better then the PM Addy. I would pretty much recommend this doll to anyone. What I love the most about her is how versatile she is compared to the other dolls. Her hair looks amazing in any style and she can pretty much wear anything. She can pull off wearing certain outfits that other dolls can't. Also you have to love her because of her touching and inspiring stories. No one should ever read AG books without reading Addy's.
She gets an A++

Mattel version Love Love LOVE this outfit! When I got my Molly I thought of the first outfit she must have and its this one. I promise to post a pic or 2 soon when i get my phone back. I will rate it an A-. The only real flaw i saw was the crown because it was made out of paper with a stretchy band. It could get bent, ripped and ruined.
This is one of the best JLY dolls I've seen! My cousin had her and shes beautiful. When we were kids, all my cousins would fight over playing with her! Its funny though because shes been played with somuch yet shes still in great condition!
