There are all sorts of rumors floating around about some of the upcoming releases from American Girl. One that I’m particularly excited about is the re-release of Felicity. Evil Twin has her, but I never managed to get her or any of her collection. While I highly doubt I will be purchasing her, I more than likely will be picking up a few of her clothing sets and accessories. I really have my fingers crossed that the preview of one of the book covers is an accurate indicator and her riding outfit will be released again! I’ve always regretted not getting it before, here’s to second chances!
I’ve noticed a lot of colonial period outfits on Etsy, so many cute ones in a variety of styles and fabrics. I was super excited when I noticed that one of my favorite sellers, Lidi Designs had some items available that reflected Felicity’s time period. Two things in particular caught my attention and I finally gave in and bought them. Abby is going to model for us since she looks the most like Felicity.
First we have this lovely cape! It was available in 3 different colors, I thought the blue would go with more. It tends to photograph more like a royal blue, but in reality it’s a navy blue. It’s made out of a wool fabric, and is nicely finished. And it has a hood!
I thought this would be a nice piece to have for a number of outfits from different eras. I’m tempted to order another in a different color, I think a red one would be fun to have. Someone could be Little Red Riding Hood for Halloween too!
The dress ensemble is just gorgeous!
I loved the colors in this outfit, and I thought it was a style that actually covered more than just colonial era. I think it also looks cute minus the apron for a Civil War Antebellum type dress.
Here Abby is showing the attached slip and the bloomers. I didn’t buy the shoes and socks she offered, I figured I would end up with a set or two with some of Felicity’s outfits and I really don’t need a bunch.
I think the lace and ribbon detailing on this dress is beautiful!
Are you excited about Felicity’s re-release? How about the new contemporary characters, Tenney and Logan? I’m looking forward to all of them, particularly the accessory pieces. I just made “Berry” level in my AG Rewards account, something tells me that with these collections and their themes (colonial and music), I’m not going to have much trouble keeping that level!!!
Be sure to check out some of the other items that Linda has at her shop, she has a couple of other pretty dresses for the Felicity fanatic!
