I wasn’t going to get Kit’s Gardening Set, I wasn’t all that excited about it when it was released. It reminded me too much of her Chicken Keeping Set. But then I saw it in person when I went to Orlando and decided that Kit needed to have it!! The overalls remind me of a pair of Osh Kosh adult sized ones I used to have.
Here are all the pieces:
Kit was super excited about trying it on!
The fit on this outfit is snug. I was also a bit disappointed to see that the pants are stitched in the rolled up position and can’t be easily snipped, so they are stuck like that for all eternity. 😦
The shirt actually has real button holes, that surprised me. It was a bit of a tight fit on my Kit.
The scarf doesn’t come pre-tied in this set (unlike the chicken keeping set) so you can use it however you want to.
I heard some complaints about Blaire’s short overalls set and how the shirt is way too short so that it won’t stay tucked in and she has “skin” exposed. I’m happy to report that Kit’s set doesn’t have this issue!
The boots are really cute with some nice details. However, there is one thing I REALLY don’t like–they now have American Girl stamped into the bottom of them. Why are they doing this and being so absolutely obnoxious about it? I’m getting tired of not being able to disguise/hide/remove these labels. I get that they have to protect their name and product, but this is getting ridiculous. I’ll be very honest–it’s turning me off of their clothing completely. I’m also not pleased with the plastic vanity tags on clothing for the historical dolls. Just another reason to shop small and buy from Etsy.
I do think it’s a cute set though. It is kind of interesting how this set borrows elements from Kit’s Chicken Keeping Set and Kit’s Overalls Outfit. It sells for $34 which is right in line with the two previous sets as well.
