The original Pleasant Company version of this outfit was taffeta. Couple this outfit with the dangling broach at the throat and the burgundy hat with it's trio of of trims streaming down the back of the neck and it's truly a stunner.
Like others, I don't care for Samantha's original plastic Mary Jane shoes. However, I would never throw mine out because so far they seem to be the only shoes that Samantha's ice skates will fit over. (Skimpy straps on the ice skates make them too short to go over better quality shoes.)
If I'm not mistaken, either wool or a wool blend was used to make Kit's coat.
It is nicely made.
Best of all, it's lined. This is really important because having a sleek lining not only gives the coat a finished look of quality but it also helps a lot when getting those splayed fingers through the sleeves.
Years ago, I got the Sugarplum coat. I just 'knew' before I'd seen it that I was going to love it. Wrong! It wasn't lined. Worse, the fabric material had a loose weave that ended up snagging the fingers several times before getting the hands through. I was so disappointed that I sent the coat back after only trying it on a doll once.
Kit's burgundy hat and mittens do seem to add the right hint of colour to contrast that gray. The gray coat alone just doesn't look anywhere near as good without these additional accessories.
