I bought this a while ago with a rewards certificate I had, but I wanted to be sure to get this post up before the sale ended at the end of the month. It’s an adorable set and I highly recommend it!
Addy’s clothing is some of the nicest in the entire American Girl line, and I hate the fact that they have been gradually discontinuing her pieces. It’s not only extremely well made, but the styles are timeless, and the nightgown is no exception.
It includes three items–the nightgown, a pair of slippers and hairbows. All of the pieces are well made and well thought out.
The detail on the nightgown is exquisite, beautifully embroidered and trimmed in lace. I think it’s a pretty design as well. The nightgown is made out of a cotton fabric. It Velcro’s closed up the back (I forgot to take a pic of that, but I think you all know what it looks like) and the Velcro is not the whole way up, more like 3/4. It was easy to put on a doll and the fit was very good.
The slippers are so cute!! They are very well made, they even have some cushion to them in the bottom. Unfortunately, that does make it a bit difficult to have a doll stand in them. Not impossible, but a bit tricky.
The hairbows are different from what I’ve received before, instead of being attached to elastics, they are on hair combs. If you’ve ever seen Addy’s hair up close, it is very thick, and I think it is an excellent idea to use combs. They were a little tricky to get into the hair of a regular doll though, but I was able to do it.
Louisa offered to model since she hasn’t had the opportunity lately.
The length on the nightgown is great, very true to size to a human sized counterpart. I just love this set and I’m so glad I finally decided to buy it. It’s very well made and can be used for either a historical or current day wardrobe. Don’t miss out on it if you’ve been thinking about it!
