A couple of weeks ago I reviewed American Girl's Purple Party outfit -- and now here's the review for the matching girl's dress! The Purple Party Dress for Girls is a perfect match for the doll's version. Like the doll's version, it's made of a deep purple taffeta, which has a smooth, elegant sheen. Like the doll's version, the skirt is lined with emerald green organza, which keeps the skirt nice and full. It's a simple yet elegant dress, full of subtle details that give it a festive touch: the pintucks at the waist, the black piping at the waist, the velvet bow. Not too frou-frou or too girly, but definitely feminine and definitely a special occasion dress -- just the way The Pea likes it
The dress is very well made, and fits very nicely. I'm somewhat bummed that the dress is Dry Clean Only, but that's a personal preference, and I know that most special occasion dresses need to be dry cleaned.
See how well the girl's dress matches the doll's dress! You can also buy a matching headband for girls (the doll's outfit comes with the headband) and a black velvet jacket that's identical to the doll version in the Holiday Accessories set.
The Pea and Caroline are going to look so pretty for all their holiday parties :)
