I see they also changed the mittens from blue to white. Good find!Rosie
I thought you might've gotten a kick out of that!
Thank you so much for pointing out that this is from her original stories! I LOVE this set, but everything just means so much more to me when it's depicted in an original illustration.
This was the first thing I bought from the beforever line and I love it! I've had mine for over a year now and it's really nice.
Wish the new books would have more illustrations like this! Madelon
Thanks everyone. It's nice to know I'm not alone in wanting to see connections made between the doll clothing and illustrations in past book stories. I agree too about wanting the new books to have more illustrations, or at least connections to the cover illustration. On Samantha's new mystery, it would be nice if American Girl could offer the red dress and white jacket featured. For me I guess it's a sign that you can go home again and that someone at American Girl is taking notice.
I agree 100%! When I first saw Samantha's original play outfit I was so frustrated because the illustrated version had bigger checks...maybe I'm being too picky...Rosie
