I saw this in the store yesterday and LOVE IT! I love yellow so it took all I had not to get the doll and girl outfit. I had other items on my historical list and got the cabana. I will be getting this outfit July 5th when I visit my family in St. Louis. I may have to pick up #30 while I am there too. I just love this outfit on her. I think it looks great on all your girls…especially Betsy.

The turtleneck is right on with something I would have worn as a kid in the 70's. My mother used to crochet me jumpers like this but I don't recall ever having a polyester jumper. I think its very cute though.
This was a gift to me from my mother when she bought me Julie and it was my favorite outfit in her entire collection at the time because I just love flower pants.
I don't like that there are no shoes in the box. So glad I didn't pay for it. It seems like most of Julie's line has no shoes and Julie just wears her meets shoes with everything. Don't like that.
It fits my Julie just fine. I have used her turtleneck with so many other outfits and many times with her meet pants. I like that.
Like others have said: needed shoes and another accessory like a ribbon for her hair or a clip or SOMETHING.

Julie was the first doll my mother bought me…for my 46th birthday! She will always be special to me. She is my JLY doll. I love her silky straight hair. It is so easy to take care of. Since I like her hair straight I really don't try to do anything with it except braid it in different ways. She looks "older" to me than all of our other dolls. So, she is always the oldest of all the girls.
I was a child of the 70's (8 in 76) so I really like the bell bottoms and the flower jumper - squeel! I don't care for her Meet outfit at all and wouldn't have worn what she has on other than the fact she has bell bottoms and the purple crochet hat. It has mix match possibilities but I just don't care for her two-tone pants. Bleh.
I love her face mold. It is my favorite. I am so glad my mother bought her for me because I would have never bought Julie on my own. I am more attached to DOC and more of an 1800's historical vibe. But, Julie has added lots of modern fun to our group of girls.
Overall she is an A+. She is made well, I love her eyes, her face mold, her hair….sigh.
I am a child of the 70s... In grade school, I ate Wonder Bread, Hostess Cupcakes, and had Kool-Aid in my thermos!! I LOVE Julie's lunch! VERY accurate and appropriate! I also love that my DD loves Julie's things!! I give this lunch an A+ for play value and A+ for accuracy!
I just got this for Julie yesterday. It is so adorable and I am thrilled that I got this! It is "totally" 70's.
I was a child of the 70's (8 in 76) and her lunchbox looks exactly like the one I have, including the thermos. I just wish it wasn't made out of plastic. My father ate Pringles like crazy and I would find them in my lunchbox. Also, I loved Hostess cupcakes and ate them all the time. My mother always bought Wonderbread so this entire set is "right on" with the era and what my parents would have put in my lunch box. A+ for accuracy!
I wish the lunch box was a bit bigger. It is difficult to put all the "puzzle pieces" in there. I have to put the thermos in first, then the sandwich, then the pringles and then the cupcake….in that order to get it to fit. The other thing that I wish is that the Pringles weren't stuck together.
Other than the minor things I give this lunch box an A. My daughter and I are so thrilled with it. Brings back memories!
