*FEATURE* 12 Days of Dresses - Kit and Ruthie

When Kit outgrows her old Christmas dress, her best friend, Ruthie, gives her this beautiful hand-me-down dress so she has something to wear to the ballet. She'll love celebrating in this lovely outfit that features:
  • A red dress with a broad white collar, red belt, and a small Scottie dog button that resembles Uncle Hendrick's dog, Inky
  • White stockings and black, patent-leather-look T-strap shoes
  • A red polka-dot hair bow to complement the dress

Ruthie's Holiday Dress $24 debuted in 2008. Retired 2014 with Ruthie's archival. 

Mini Kit wears a custom version by Auntie Robin.

Kit's Christmas Dress for Girls $80. Retired 2000.


  1. These pictures of Kit are adorable! Rhonda, your Kit doll is lovely. Is she Pleasant Company? Plus, her dress has the options for pinning a pin on the flap. Have you ever seen the scottie pin, the one you have to pin on the doll? The newer versions have the scottie dog fastened on the dress. My favorite AG Christmas story is Kit's. It shows how even friends can make mistakes and find forgiveness, which is very true at any age.

    1. Thanks, Kit IS a PC. I bought this dress second hand and it did not include a scottie dog pin, I have used the candy cane pin off and on before. I haven't seen the Scottie dog pin in person. Kit's stories are amazing, I love all of the stories it's so difficult to pick one because each has it's own lesson and charm.

  2. This is my favorite dress. I love the color, the white collar, and the flared skirt. We don't have Kit but I had to buy the dress.

  3. Wonderful photos! I read Kit's books after Molly's; you're right about each having a lesson to learn and share. I really liked how Kit overcame her pride.
