I feel this dress is so tight that it is a little hoochy honestly. I know my Mia fka Kit is a little bit chubby, but it just doesn't look quite right on her. It also might be a dress that just needs to be photographed outside.
The shoes are a small struggle to get on, B+. You have to put the ribbon part on, then the toes, then the heel. I noticed a lot of display shoes at the store with the threading on the criss-cross broken, so check your shoes in person if you can. Even in my pictures I don't have the shoe all the way on one foot, oops. Like I said, a little hard to get on...
The hairpin I give an A for now, as long as it doesn't lose its strength over time.
Here is the dress on Saige with the ivory tights from the $5 current tights set... The only problem is I don't know what shoes to put with it now. It looks way better on Saige. My biggest problem is that even though it is lined, you can see Saige's blue undies through the dress (I took them off). Kind of frustrated with this dress....
I love this dress! I give it an A, no plus because the velcro closure in the back can easily snag on the delicate lace. I don't think this dress would be a good buy for careless play just because of the velcro. Otherwise it's gorgeous and well made. The shoes are probably my favorite part of the outfit.
I was really tempted to get my daughter the look-alike just because it's such a pretty dress!
One of my few full priced purchases from AG. Had to get this dress. All three pieces are wonderful. Agree that it's a little tight--I'd have liked it looser fitting. The heftier dolls will have trouble getting the back to close, and I also wish that AG had used the gentler velcro. The shoes are the lovelies dress shoes that I've seen for the dolls in a long time, maybe ever.
I think the dress looks better on the dols medium or dark vinyl. My Stefanie (26) gets this and it looks like it was made for her. With cream tights and a little OG cream colored Jacket, this will be the main part of her spring dressy outfit. I, too, give this a solid A.

I love this dress! The color and design are beautiful. I do, however, have two small complaints. Firstly, it is a bit on the tight side while trying to get it up over a dolly's bottom. It doesn't look bad, though, once it's on. Secondly, the velcro is just regular velcro. I feel that the softer kind would have been better for this particular dress because of the lace. The shoes are lovely, no complaints for those. And the hair pin is just darling...a nice color and feels like it might actually stay in place, unlike some of the other AG hair accessories that I own. This outfit gets a solid A from me.
