My twins each have that outfit and one has snaps and one has velcro. The one with snaps has no sign it ever had velcro, and it is in perfect condition since there are no velcro snags. It came with DDs eBay Samantha.
This outfit was just stuffed in a box because my daughter hated it until I got my own dolls and decided it would be perfect for Lea. The sweater is so soft and fits well. The skirt does wrinkle easily. It matches the shoes perfectly. I like the fact that it has socks and not tights cause they're easier. The necklace looks cute and coordinates with the rinestones on the sweater. I'd give it an A.
I think this outfit looks fab on Nicki. I wish the sweater was just a little bit longer but it fits Nicki really well. I like that the skirt just has elastic at the waist and no velcro to avoid snags. The head band seems to fit her pretty well after I cut off the crazy long tag. Overall, great outfit.
