Lanie's Butterfly Outfit Item# G0744 $28
Lanie loves monarch butterflies—this outfit matches the color of their delicate wings. Lanie chooses this fresh-and-fun outfit for special days:
* A sleeveless eyelet dress with a scalloped hem * A knit cardigan with cropped sleeves and embroidered detail * Red canvas sandals to match * A monarch butterfly clip that can perch on her finger or in her hair * Includes a craft card with tips for decorating a barrette with pretty buttons
The dress is well-made, with a lining inside. I like it that the jacket is the same color as Lulu's leash. It is a versatile outfit, as Lanie can wear just the dress on summer, or with the jacket for spring/fall. Good mix-n-match possibilities with other outfits too.

I don't really understand why anyone would think the colors of this outfit are too bright. The red dress especially is a very soft, light red. Jess says this is the perfect Spring outfit. It's comfortable & versatile & she really likes the sweet eyelet trim on the dress, the soft little buttoning jacket, cute red sandals, & the butterfly clip that looks great in her dark hair. We give this outfit a solid A.

I think this is a very pretty outfit and give it an A+ overall.
The dress seems a nice cut and is made of loveliest rich orangey-red/pink (coral?) broderie anglaise. The jacket is a gorgeous vibrant orange. Both colours go well together and suit Lanie beautifully.
The dress and jacket fit nicely. I love the little dragonfly on the jacket and the monarch butterfly hair clip is so cute. I may steal it for my very own.
I found the shoes a bit disappointing imho in that they are pretty insubstantial and have no fastening, just an elastic strap around the ankle. I guess that is easier for small hands to put on, but these dolls ARE meant to be for ages 8 and up and personally I prefer the little, fiddly, details like buckles that work, that make other AG shoes look like the real McCoy shrunk to fit 18in dolls.

I really like this outfit. While the colors are both fairly bright, other posters are correct in saying that the red is actually a fairly soft red. I think the red eyelet material is so sweet! I like the dress without the cardigan, although I generally don't like being able to see the doll's arm sockets and stitching. I want to try it on Piper with a white t-shirt underneath and see how that looks. The butterfly clip is a fun little accessory. Looks cute on the finger or in the hair. The cardigan is great paired with pants and a tee, as well. A good mix and match piece. I do feel that mine doesn't stay buttoned very well - the button hole seems to be a tad too big. The shoes are really cute, stay on well, and will be good mix and match pieces too. Grade - A Pictures of Piper in the outfit -

I love this outfit! The colors are perfect for Lanie (and Sonali) and the butterfly hair clip is a cute extra. I love the fabric of the orange jacket, though I'm not sure how to describe it! Here's a pic:

I think this outfit is a lot cuter once I got it than it was on the computer. I only got this outfit because it was in the starter collection, which is the thing I got. I was very happily surprised when I found out how cute it was! Especially the hair clippy and shoes.

I love this outfit! The dress is soft and lacy, with darling details. It looks great with or without the jacket. The jacket is bright and playful, with cute embroidery and a real button. The shoes and clip coordinate so well. I think this outfit is very well made.

I just got this outfit as the PWP at AGPS on Saturday. I have to say that before seeing the outfit in person I actually hated it. I was disapointed that this was the outfit available at the Seattle store because I really wanted the one with the blue rainboots instead.
However after seeing it in person, it's actually really cute and the colors are very nice. I looks especially good on McKenna.
The dress is very cute and great for summer. I love the little jacket and I think I would look cute over a t-shirt and jeans. Also the little butterfly clip is adorable. I give it an A.

This is one of my all-time favorite outfits! The colors are gorgeous and it looks great on any doll, preferably red heads like Mia. Grade A for me. Here's a quick pic of her in it (Minus the sweater and clip).
