*REVIEW* Addy's Birthday Dress

Addy's 1994 Pinafore and snood or Birthday Outfit. $28
Retired 2013. 

Cream colored long sleeved blouse with puffed sleeves gathered at the elbow, Velcros at wrist. Small brown rickrack detail at the neck with small brown buttons. Velcros in back.

Coffee brown gingham pinafore. Straps tie at the shoulders. Full skirt with two triangle pockets trimmed in same brown rickrack. Velcros in back.

I do not have the original brown crochet mesh snood with cream ribbon trim. I use her BeForever hairstyling set. The snood should be placed at top center of Addy's head with hair fully gathered into net.

This is a Pleasant Co version.

Previous post on Rumors Addy may be archiving 2016. (Announcement may come as soon as May.)
LADL will keep watch on this story.


  1. Thanks for sharing her beautiful dress. I am sad to see her go. Seems to me there is enough space in the AG stores for Addy and Melody, etc. I assume most sales of the dolls and their lines occur online anyway and dolls only take up warehouse space. Wish the archival announcement wasn't coming so soon. Madelon

  2. I agree. Addy came out in 1993 and was a longtime favorite.

  3. Her dress looks great on her! I just got her. Hope the rumors about her archive prove wrong.

  4. I think that the rumors will unfortunately turn out to be true based on what I have learned. Madelon

  5. Have you considered using one of those knitting looms to make a snood? That's what I plan to do. I made this set as a DIY, so I don't have the snood yet.
