These outfits are really cute although my daughter often skips putting on the separate shirt under the jumper and just used the jumper over a naked doll. She also has the matching outfit for girls which I am posting here:
Julie's bed is not wood, it is good quality plastic/ resin. The bedding is beautifully made but the canopy just sits on top of the frame and frequently comes off. The beads are very nice and attach firmly.
We love this outfit but not the girl's outfit that matches. The girls' shirt is very short waisted and hardly usable after only washing because of it. I have been overall disappointed in the quality of the matching clothes for girls that is sold by AG.
We seem to have the same taste in clothes (or sales) I notice; we have several of the same outfits for our girls/dolls. I thought the waistband of the skirts were a little tight but the sweaters ran big. My girls ended up not wanting to wear the collars to church, they thought they looked silly unfortunately.
I agree the shirt runs VERY short. We only got a couple of used out of before the laundry rendered it unwearable. It was super cute while it lasted, though, esp. with the shrug and matching tights, etc.
We love ours. My second of three daughters is not fitting into it; in a couple years it will pass on to my third daughter. At my house, if an outfit gets passed along from AG, the matching doll's outfit does NOT, but you have to let your sister borrow it as needed.
This is just a personal opinion; obviously many people including my friend's daughter would disagree with me, but when I saw the AA bitty in person at AGP I thought it was the ugliest babydoll I'd ever seen and I couldn't believe out of all the other beautiful things in AGP, that was what this girl chose. I just think they could have made it SO MUCH CUTER.

We have the pretty plum outfit and the girl's outfit to match and I just bought the plum dress to complete the trio. I'm looking forward to seeing my daughter's face when she sees that I got the third piece of the set finally! However I have to say the shirt for the girl's outfit is very short waisted and my daughter couldn't even wear it anymore after only one washing. I tried to buy a bigger size but they are clearancing them and are out of the Large.
Even my real double stroller doesn't have the swivel wheels so I didn't miss it on the Bitty stroller! We love it and my older daughters are always coaxing my youngest to let them borrow the stroller for Nicki, Jess, etc.
I adore our daisy nighties for twins and girl. The only complaint I have about them is that the nighty is very structured through the bodice with no "give" at all in the fabric. My little girl has a really hard time getting her arms in but once in, it fits fine. If she's damp from the bath FORGET IT, we just can't get it on at all. It is the right size, just very close in form.
Mine also came in the mail yesterday! Wait, did I say mine? I meant my daughter's It is really cute but I too will be interested to see how it holds up with use. We wont' be opening it officially till Dec. 1 when my daughter turns 5.
We are happy with the trundle bed. I was surprised when our beds arrived and were plastic (we bought Julie's bed and the blue curlicue daybed at the same time). I thought the white beds were wood and the curlicue bed was metal. Stupid me.
