American Girl Samantha and Rebecca

Samantha and her great friend Rebecca both got new dresses recently. Samantha got the Frilly Frock and Rebecca got a new holiday dress.  Let’s take a closer look at Samantha’s outfit and in an upcoming post we will look at Rebeccas’s dress, too.

Samantha is headed to Grandmary’s for tea this afternoon and has decided to get dressed up in her Frilly Frock outfit. This is one of those outfits that really caught me off guard and the more I looked at it, the more I researched it, the more I knew how unique it is and just had to have it. The outfit consists of a frilly pink/lavender dress, white tights, boots and a hair bow.

Plenty of frills and lace here! I love the detailing but our Samantha is a little too well stuffed for this dress to fit her well – I have to really work to velcro the back and you can see it pulling a bit. I need to try this on one of the slimmer bodied dolls and see if it looks better on them.

This gives you a better idea as to how hard I had to work to get the dress on my Samantha. Be very careful with this velcro too as this dress will snag easily.

Samantha’s bow is attached to a pony tail holder so you don’t have to try tying it on your own.

So we have already discussed these awesome high strap boots that come with Samantha’s outfit (read this post) and I will say I am so glad I decided to get this outfit – even if just for the boots. They velcro up the back and you have to be VERY careful not to snag her tights, but the boots do fit and look pretty amazing, actually.

So, what do you think of this outfit. It seems to be one that people either love or hate! I really did not like it the first time I saw it, but it quickly became a point of curiosity and the more I see it, the more I love it. It is very different from anything AG has made before and they certainly took a risk with this outfit – which definitely makes me like it even more.
