One day I was near a Target and I popped in to see if they had anything interesting in the Our Generation line. Selection was only marginally better than some other ones I had been to, but they did have some different things that I hadn’t seen elsewhere (I have noticed since that this seems to be improving). I got the Rock ‘N Tote, it’s the set that comes with the little records, I thought that would be great to have since I have Julie’s sound accessories. It’s also the first time I’ve found it at any of the Target stores I’ve been to. I also picked up the Pretty Preppy outfit, it just sucked me in instantly!
I decided Abby would be a good model for this outfit and I was right, I think it looks terrific on her. The skirt is a little large around the waist, I’m going to have to alter it ever-so slightly to keep it from slipping down around her ankles! The sweater fits great and I was glad to see that the shoes fit an AG doll, even with the socks on. OG shoes drive me bananas as there is no consistency in the fit!
Not only is the outfit cute, but the accessories are too, I love the little pen and the zippered pencil case. To complete the outfit, a nice shiny headband. I think Abby looks ready for a busy day at school.
This is one of their least expensive outfits, selling at Target for $12.99. Overall I think it’s very cute and my only real complaints are the waist on the skirt and the socks tend to be a bit saggy because of the way they are made, no matter what I did, they looked sloppy. Otherwise, I think it’s a great outfit and well worth the price. My rating: B+
NOTE: I did end up altering the skirt slightly by sewing two pieces of elastic towards the back. Worked like a charm and it will still fit a larger bodied doll this way.
