This outfit is worn by Samantha in the Beforever books Manners and Mischief and The Lilac Tunnel.
It may not be “proper“ for Samantha to climb trees in her favorite pink dress, but that never stopped her! This authentic 1904 outfit includes:
A petal-pink dress with a layer of sheer dotted mesh on top, a lace hem and collar, short puff sleeves, and a burgundy velvet sash
Soft white tights
Ruffled white bloomers
Shiny black Mary Jane shoes
I am in love with this outfit! I bought it for my original PM Samantha, and it is just beyond cute on her. It's a fairly simple cotton-candy pink dress with a Swiss-dotted overskirt. The skirt is trimmed with lace. The huge collar is lace, too. The burgundy sash is velvet and is non-removable. (I wish it was. It would be pretty with both her current and original Christmas outfits.) The tights are standard white tights, but they're fairly thick and well-made. The bloomers are also fairly standard, the same kind of bloomers she came with originally. The Mary-Janes are shiny soft vinyl, a huge improvement over her original hard plastic monstrosities.
My concern was it wouldn't fit my plump Sam. Much to my delight, it fits her beautifully, with some room leftover for the skirt from her Lacy Whites under the dress. Even the stockings and shoes fit well. As mentioned, it didn't come with the hair scrunchie, but I have a hundred pink ribbons (and as I discovered, the pink ribbon scrunchie from Samantha's new Bicycling Outfit looks great with this dress).
It's so cute on Sam, it's well worth the $36 if you have an older doll who didn't come in this outfit.
