I was so excited to get the recital outfit but as soon as I saw it I made an instant decision that I didn't like it and thought it looked cheap. So I plan to return it. The flowers looks so frayed at the tips. Maybe this is fashionable but it looks like an old shirt that used to go with a really nice pair of pants. Oh well, one less outfit I need or want. Very disappointed in this shirt.

I ordered this outfit a few weeks ago, and honesty, I don't have many complaints. I will say that the pants do not go with the shirt whatsoever, but I don't pair the top with the pants.
The shirt: The shirt is made from a thin, blue knit. However, it isn't too thin. I can't see through it, but it could be because of the lighting. I feel that it is very realistic, though. I have similar shirts for myself, and even though those are thinner, I fix the problem by wearing a tank top underneath. I feel that if the thinness of the shirt is an issue with dolls, the problem could be fixed the exact same way. I think that the sleeves and rosettes are very pretty and add a nice touch to the shirt. I also like that it is somewhat form-fitting; I'm not a fan of looser shirts on dolls. Grade: A-
The headband: Just a basic blue ribbon headband with some elastic and jewels on it. It fits the dolls well, and it doesn't fall off. Grade: A+
The pants: When worn as actual clothing, they are quite tacky. I would never pair them with the shirt it came with. However, these pants strike me as pants that one would wear as part of a dance recital for a jazz class, and if I didn't give them away, that's what I would have used them for. As I said, they definitely aren't what I'd call street clothes or even dress pants. I never put them on a doll, so I don't know how they fit. I won't give the pants a grade.
The shoes: Basic blue flats made from a satin-like material. They are a little snug and hard to get on, but they are a nice piece to have for mix and match purposes. They are very simple. Grade: B+
Overall grade: A-

This is a really underrated outfit. I know the shirt is thin, but it's really pretty. Blue and silver is a nice combination. I read something on the AG website about the pants falling down, but that's never been an issue for me. The headband got a little tangled, but it's still working.
I purchased this outfit on sale. I wouldn't have purchased it full price. It is a very pretty outfit, but the fabrics are thin and the doll can't sit down in the pants; they immediately slip over her rear.
