Love the sweet pattern of this cotton dress.
The shoes do not fit.
I dislike the gloves. They fit well, but I would have liked them in white. (I have white, but lilac isn't a color I would choose).
These are the accessories I'm not particularly fond of. This makes a cuter bowling bag or travel carry-on bag than a purse.
I do love the glittery hair bow barrettes.
The dress is a bit too short. In this photo it looks to be the right length however it really is above the knee. For Maryellen it's not an accurate length for the 1950s.
I like this set very much, but I bought it for Maryellen so my critique is based on how it fits on her and her era. I recommend this for any doll, only disappointing part is the shoes.....too small.
