I couldn't help but get this outfit for Addy. My Addy is PM so she does look a little chunkier than slender Cécile. The whole outfit does fit. Addy is wearing her own crinoline in the pic, so Addy's does work with the outfit. I think the purple looks amazing with Addy's coloring.
PS, I was wondering how the jacket goes on before I got it, the straps in the front have velcro on one side. I'm impressed with how it looks.
I could not resist Cécile's Fancy Dress for my Addy. My Addy is also PM, so it is a bit snug, but still fits. Addy is wearing her own crinoline, so in case you were wondering it does fit under the dress.
I got my mini Lissie today and I am so much happier than I expected to be. I found AG's Stock photo to be pretty bad.
Anyway, The lace fits the doll much better than I expected. It's not to scale, bot doesn't seem as bad in person as in the pictures. The ribbon trim is darling. The shoes are very nicely made and go high enough up her foot so she won't lose them too easily.
The color of her hair is exactly like my recent mini Kirsten with the different toned streaks. I'm in love with the sweet bows, but want to note that they are not tied around the braid. They are actually bows that are attached to the clear bands holding the braids at the bottom. I suspect if you take out the braids the bands will break and you will be left with a bow with no way to re-attach it without your own thread.
The pantaloons and socks are identical to the current regular mini. The red boots are the same as the regular's boots, only red on top with black laces instead of brown all over.
Here's my pic with my glass-eyed Kirsten and a current mini Kirsten:
I just want to add that the base is not made of plastic. It is wood. The top is solid plastic and the three flowers are fabric. I'm much happier with the price now that I've had time to handle it an really examine it.
Okay, I'm terrible with writing reviews. I wouldn't own the doll if I didn't like her so I'm biased. Anyway...
She is medium skinned with hazel eyes, light brown hair, and a Jess mold. She may have the longest hair of any AG ever. She gives Kaya a run for her money.
Her limbs are held on with knotted elastic. She was the first doll I picked out and they are just like normal. Not too tight, not too lose. The cups inside her arms and legs are a different design than the ones in my other dolls. Maybe it is a better design to work with the knots.
Her meet outfit consists of a dress, necklace, sandals, undies, and a flower hair clip. I added some barrettes in the picture because she has so much hair.
The laptop fits into the bag easily. There isn't a lot more room, but it is easy to get the laptop in. You can fit the screens in with the laptop and Lanie's letters and postcards can fit in a front pocket.
I'm in love! The tunic is adorable, and the emboiderly on the pants is much nicer than I expected. The sandals are a little snug, but still go on and off pretty easily. I'm not a bucket hat girl, but it really does complete the outift. The bracelet can be adjusted to fit both PM and Mattel dolls. I would never garden in this outfit (with all it's white) but it really is adorable, modern, and age appropriate.
I was suprised that this set was only $42 when it was released, but now that I have it I think it is a fair price.
The desk is really cute by itself. The desk part slides so your doll can adjust it to fit.
I am disappointed that a doll doesn't look very comfortable at her desk.
I love the Accessories it comes with. The math book is literally the updated version of the math book from older school sets. It is adorable. The pencil case is functional, but has nothing to put in it. It matches the new lunchbox more than the current backpack which dissappoints me a little. Finally the folder is darling and includes several homework sheets. They are just too cute for words!!!

This is a great set, but I wish they had made the school bag separate from the lunch. I feel the lunch is the same quality (or better) than any other lunch, but the school bag is lacking.
The lunch fits nicely inside the box and the box has a functional buckle to hold it closed.
The school bag is nice, and the drawtring means Rebecca can hold it herself. Everything fits into the bag. The pocket in front is real with a functioning button. The Kewpie doll notebook is mentioned in "Rebecca to the Rescue" and the sheet music and flag are from "Rebecca and Ana." The pencil is functional. I wish there were more school-ish supplies. *MOD EDIT to remove dead image links*
Love the outfit, but I wish the skirt was really a skirt. It's described as a skirt on the packaging, but, well, you can see in the picture. It's a skirt attached to an undershirt. I'd rather pay a few more dollars and get a separate skirt and shirt. In the end it doesn't hurt the outfit, it just gives it less mix and match potential.
The meet accessories are a little sparse for $24. You get a hat, a shawl/scarf, and a pin. If the pin (and actually the scarf) didn't show up in "Meet Rebecca" as prominently I'd have skipped the set altogether.
I actually really love the hat on Rebecca.
The scarf pattern is printed, not woven, so it only appears on one side of the fabric. The other side is white.
I'm disappointed in the pin because it isn't actually a pin. It's more of a clip. I was hoping to pin it to all of Rebecca's outfits but with the clip the way it is it really only works with Rebecca's meet outfit.
I got the cookies and the donuts off. (I ordered them as replacement parts, I don't have the rest of the set.) The cookies came off nice and neat. The donuts... well, I don't have a tray for them anymore...
