American Girl Saige’s Sweater Outfit Up Close

I know you are ready for a close look at another one of Saige’s outfits! I wanted to share her Sweater Outfit next because, honestly, this is the trendiest outfit I have seen from American Girl in a long, long time! It almost makes you wonder if they didn’t consult one of the talented designers from Liberty Jane Patterns or something.

The sweater outfit, which sells for $34 consists of stretch twill jeggings, a tunic length tank top with a very subtle print (which I LOVE by the way), a bright geometric printed open front sweater (can I have this in grown up size please?) and brown sandals with fringed detail that velcro in the back. If you are going to get Saige (or even if you don’t for that matter), get this outfit – the doll fashion police will thank you 😉

Before I forget, here is a close up of Saige wearing the earrings she comes with. I like them because they are not “cute-sy” earrings – they are the same flower design that is considered to be Saige’s symbol and they are silver.

And in case you were wondering how her ring looks from the side, you can see it is a C shape to allow for a better fit.  Make sure when you put the ring on your doll’s finger that the open part of the C is up against the next finger over so it doesn’t fall off.

Here is the sweater outfit without the sweater! Saige looks so fashionable! I really do like the tank top. Of all the outfits American Girl has released in years this has to be one that they really paid attention to detail on (I feel the same way about Caroline’s holiday dress). They could have just used a solid color for the tank top but that would have been predictable and ho-hum. The patterned top gives the outfit more depth and more polish. Don’t mind Saige’s hair – I still haven’t quite figured out her curls yet.

I just liked this photo.

Now the completed look! The bracelet and necklace are from her accessory set, by the way. First of all, the jeggings are a bit tricky to get on – they are seriously snug. However, I have found that if you get the jegging completely over each foot before you pull them up, it is much easier. The sweater is a lightweight sweater knit (as opposed to a t-shirt or jersey knit) and the arms are snug. This photo shows what it looks like on before I really messed with it. You have to really make sure you have the sleeves pulled up to the shoulders and then you have to fiddle with the collar a bit to get the drape just right.

Saige can wear her earrings alone or layered with the feather dangle earrings from her accessory set. I’m not sure which posts I like best with the feathers – her meet earrings or the turquoise ones – both look great.

I pulled Saige’s hair up into a half pony so you could get a better look at her sweater. You can see that it does drape nicely, but you have to work with it – it does not fall that way on its own.

At first I thought Saige’s brown sandals were a totally new design from AG and then I realized that they are the same basic concept as Kanani’s meet sandals – just a different color, wider fringe and a back velcro. Either way, I love these sandals as they will go with ANYTHING! Saige does look like she could use a pedicure though – I wonder where the doll nail stickers are…

If you look at Saige’s hand you can see how thick the ring is in relation to her finger. Not exactly scale, but necessary for the play value and durability of the piece with this design.

To give you a better idea of how long Saige’s hair really is when it is down, I took this photo. You can also get a sense of how her curls look. I do think her hair is going to take quite a bit of work to keep it looking nice and to preserve those curls. The color of her hair is just gorgeous and looking around my office right now, I can definitely see that the auburn haired beauties are in control – I am surprised at how few blonde haired dolls we actually have.

I will share the close up photos of her Sparkly Dress tomorrow as it is a piece I was pleasantly surprised with. What do you think of Saige’s Sweater Outfit?

    I love this outfit! I love all things colorful, and I like that the tank top is tunic length. I wish the Velcro on the tank top went all the way down, so I wouldn’t have to put it on over her head and mess up her hair.

  2. AGInParadise says:

    Yes! The normal AG horses are like 75 dollars! That is way over priced!

  3. AGInParadise says:

    I have her sweater outfit, it came with the starter. It is cute, but I in real life an not really one for fashion. But I have to admit…It does look great on her… :)

  4. AGInParadise says:

    I cant wait for the sparkly dress close up! I really want it, but I don’t know if it’s worth the money.

  5. Avery says:

    Secondie! I didn’t expect the sweater to be knit.

  6. Avery says:

    Woops…my iPad messed up and didn’t show the rest of the comments!

  7. Avery says:

    Guess I’m not secondie!

  8. Candice Lacy says:

    Oh wow, gorgeous pictures–best ones I’ve seen yet! I’m so glad I ordered this outfit. I ordered just the Saige doll and her accessories, then the next day I decided i really, really needed this outfit (I was planning on buying it, but later, till I started seeing pictures, lol). So a second order for just the outfit flew off the computer! I have a feeling they will arrive a couple of days apart.

  9. Teeny says:

    ABsolutely LOVE it!!! So cute. I plan on getting her and most of her collection when we go on our annual trip to Denver later in spring! Great pics.

  10. princesskea2 says:

    love this! so adorable and trendy!

  11. Molly W. says:

    1Thank you for the pictures, Char! This outfit looks a lot different here than AG’s photo’s made it seem…. 😛 This is definitely one I want! :)

  12. lizzie says:

    i bought this yesterday and i am so pleased with the qualitey(spelling?) of it. i have a sweater like this and i love it. i was suprised at the softness of the sweater and the leggings are not that hard to put on and the sandals complete the look. i made a cute flower hair clip for my dolls and it looks so good with this outfit. i do not have saige or her accessories.

  13. Tari says:

    I thought the same thing when I saw this outfit for the first time! Liberty Jane totally came to mind. AG’s items are nice but yes, you’re right, this is the trendiest thing they’ve come out with lately.

  14. Maxine says:

    The sweater set is really eye-catching and the jewellery is wonderful! Definitely my favourite pieces from all the super photos you’ve taken. I think the balloon is inspiring too (big kid!)- and can’t wait to see more of it.

  15. Jana says:

    Thanks for the great close up on this outfit, I wanted it when I first saw it, but now I really do!

  16. Paris says:

    I want her sooooo bad. She is so pretty

  17. AgLova says:

    Wow at first I really didn’t like this outfit but now I LUV IT!!!!!!!

  18. Hadden says:

    Char, can you please post more.I find myself turning on and off my computer constantly but the same thing is there each time and I get frustrated and turn it off.Then after waiting 5 minutes turn it on again. So do you think that on your last post each day you could say that’s the last one?

  19. Alicen says:

    I really want that outfit- that’s why while I’m going to get Saige, I’m going to get that outfit too! I didn’t know that the tank top actually had a design on it. I didn’t realize that the sandals were a converted design from Kanani’s meet shoes. You should compare it sometime. Anyway, thanks for reviewing the outfit I wanted first. 😀

  20. lovley says:

    lovvvvve the earings!!!

  21. Molly W. says:

    Woops! My comment is still in moderation but I meant Thank you instead of 1Thank you. 😛 Typo…sorry. :/ Oh and Hadden~You don’t need to turn off your computer. Just refresh the page and then look at recent posts on the right sidebar.
    Okay, I just gotta say this: Saige is bee-yoo-tiful! 😀 Her hair is especially lovely! :)

  22. Emily says:

    I LOVE this outfit!! Did you perhaps buy the painting set? I’d love to see how the portfolio looks!
    I ordered Saige, the sweater outfit and the painting set on January 1st, and it is estimated to arrive on the 7th… I don’t think I can wait that much longer!!!
    By the way your pictures are beautiful! It made me want to start to take pictures of my two dolls (Lanie and my Just Like You Felicity).

  23. Hadden says:

    @Molly W., I would but I always try to save power.:(

  24. Samantha says:

    Love it!!!

  25. Pretty Irish AG says:

    Lordy, this is cute! I initially thought that this was too bright, but now I’m glad to be buying the starter collection.

  26. elise says:

    The sweater outfit i s adorable! Now that I have seen it up-close, I can’t get Saige without getting the sweater outfit!

  27. hannah says:


  28. Cannot wait for my saige (she is coming in the mail) that outfit is also coming in the mail

  29. AllieGirlAG says:

    We haven’t received Saige yet( Or Molly and Emily) maybe next week.
    We ordered the sweater set, thanks Char for the detailed pictures. Also ordered the Sparkly dress and Cecile’s PJ’s for Saige as her short ones are too cold for Canada right now. LOL
    We were reading reviews on American Girl and it says you should use the pick on Saige’s hair, not the brush?
    Is this true.
    I have McKenna my first doll and got the brush. Should I use the brush on Molly and Emily when I get them as well. I kind of want to leave the braids in for Molly though.
    Char your detail and updates are awesome. How long will my posts be in moderation?
    Thanks Allie

  30. Sierra says:

    Very cute! Your pics of Saige are way cuter/different than AG’s. I’m really suprised at how curly and long her hair is!

  31. Mattie says:

    OMG I love this outfit!!!!! I got her pjs in the mail today and it was CUTE!!!!

  32. cecile says:

    My birthday is tomorrow

  34. sabrina says:

  35. hannah says:

  36. Juli says:

    Char–will you be doing a giveaway for Saige? Just asking. :) She is absolutely beautiful, but my parents refuse to buy me anymore dolls…haha :)

  37. Jessie says:

    I love it!!! I was wondering, do Saige’s ‘dangly’ earrings {the non-studs} fit other dolls’ posts? I’d really like to get the accessory set but I don’t want Saige herself.

  38. Delaney says:

    @Jessie yes they do, I have tried them on Ivy and my MAG

  39. Jessie says:

    Thanks, Delaney! 😀

  40. Pretty Irish AG says:

    I was thinking about sewing a beige outfit for Saige over spring break. I’ll post it, if/when I do it.

  46. Gail says:
