Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect Harmony dress! I bought it for my daughter's birthday and she and I love it! I love that the fabric is from the 60s but still is durable! The wet gloves at the perfect touch and the shoes pulled the whole outfit together! If you have anything from Melody you definitely have to get this!!!!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Different and cute I really like this dress and, being from that era, I was excited to get it for my granddaughters. At first, I thought the fabric felt like plastic, but once it was on the doll, I really liked it because it held it's shape well. I just found the inside skirt to be a little snug and difficult to put on the doll. I realize some dolls are a little bigger than others, but it was quite tight to pull up. Otherwise, really cute!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fancy and fun I love the print of this dress-the florals appear a bit brighter in person and contrast more on the beige of the background than it appears online. I love the bright coral pink shoes and the little gloves. I do wish a bow was included also. And, like others, I was a bit surprised by the material. It feels almost like a tablecloth material to me. Overall I am glad to have this in my collection, but it is my least favorite of Melody's clothing. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful dress for Melody. I was on the fence with this dress because I was concerned it would get pretty wrinkled. I’m so glad I went ahead and bought it because it’s made of a great fabric that stays nice. It’s a big hit with the granddaughters. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Product! I bought this last black friday (in store) and it honestly was one of the best things i had bought that day! It holds up very well over time (as it has held up almost a year for me) and it is very durable. A huge perk is the material that it is made with, it has been waterproof (to the extent that I have used it to) and the velcro is quite sturdy. The gloves were a nice touch, although they can be lost if not kept carefully. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Now I know what happened to my shower curtain Let me start by saying the colors on this dress are absolutely gorgeous and the style of the dress is beautiful. The shoes (the best part of the outfit) are soooo adorable. But the material the dress is made of?....HORRIBLE. It really does feel like a shower curtain...and i dont remember my siblings or me ever wearing a shower curtain in the 60s! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks Great on Any Doll! I bought this in December after much deliberation. When I first saw it in the store, I didn't like the fabric.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Beautiful outfit I would give this outfit a higher rating if the shoes weren’t so difficult to get on. We just got Melody so her limbs are pretty tight. Trying to shove one of the shoes on made one of her legs looser because I had to wiggle it into the shoe. Once the shoes are on, one of her pinky toes bulges out a little tiny bit. Not really sure what to say about that. All in all, it is a very cute outfit and I don’t regret buying it. Do I think it is worth full price? No. I personally would wait for a sale before buying it if you can. That being said, even if my review comes off a bit harsh, I do really like this outfit and I think it looks really beautiful on Melody! Note: the colors are much brighter in person than on the website. Not s problem for me personally but I think some people really don’t like that [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrid Fabric I just purchased this for my daughter for Christmas and now that I'm home I hate it. The fabric is awful. It feels like dollar tree quality fabric. I cannot believe American girl made this. If it's any indication of what their quality is coming to then I will not be buying anymore. The pattern is adorable and the print, why on earth cheap it up with a vinyl material? [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Cheap plastic dress with ugly white MITTENS I was very disappointed with the poor quality of this outfit. The dress appears to have been made out of a plastic shower curtain--no fabric involved. The "gloves" are MITTENS and very cheaply constructed. The shoes are cute. The dress is not wearable because of the deep creases and folds from being in the box, but I don't dare try to iron it--it would melt. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Beautifully made, horrible fabric This dress LOOKS gorgeous, and it is evident a lot of care and detail went into making it. However, the fabric is HORRIBLE! It feels very plastic-y - not at all like taffeta. It doesn't even feel as good as cheap taffeta! Hopefully AG will change the fabric, because it is super disappointing for the price. It looks great on Melody though - just don't touch it. Oh, and the flowers are neon pink in person, not the more subdued pink they look in catalog & website pictures.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Was mislead by reviews, the outfit is great. So many reviews mentioned that this dress feel plasticky. When I was at the store, I actually touched the fabric to see what is it that everybody is talking about. The dress has a little thicker material, but it is soft and nice. Nothing plasticky about it. Please don't be afraid to get this outfit for Melody. You and your Melody will love it. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great dress! Lovely summer dress - the pattern of the flowers on the dress and the dress design are super cute and adorable! Love the pink shoes - super cute and great quality! I purchased this set for my Marie Grace doll, to dress her for summer! I am not crazy about the fabric, it is a bit too smooth and too plastic, but i can compromise once in a while, this dress is just too adorable, so i don't mind the 'strange' fabric. It does keep the shape of the dress very nicely. In person it is a gorgeous dress!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A beautiful dress!! This dress is so beautiful. the colors, the print, the style. Everything is great. It is a little short when the doll sits in it. The skirt comes up very much. But I guess that's becuase of its pencil skirt style. it's still a great dress. Despite what everyone says about the fabric. I think it's a good fabric becuase it is very easy to clean if dirty. And you never have to worry about it wrinkling. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Such a sweet outfit! Others have mentioned the "stiffness" of the fabric, but I remember very clearly the "Polished Cotton" fabrics of the 60s...I wore them, and they were somewhat stiff and crackly, so this dress is authentic in that way. The style is of course too old for Melody, but the book tells us it was borrowed from an older sister, so that makes it okay. The shoes are darling. I guess they are my favorite part of the outfit!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Dress pretty but feels like a shower curtain I guess the best way to make the pleats hang right without having to be ironed was to make it out of a fabric that feels like a shower curtain. Although the description calls the fabric "taffeta," that is apparently meant to convey what the fabric mimics, not the actual fabric. That being said, no worry about ironing it! And the color is nice and love the matching Mary Jane shoes. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Awful fabric I'm not sure what this fabric is, but it isn't taffeta. It feels more like shower curtain. A friend of mine agrees. She said it felt like the disposable plastic tablecovers that you use for birthdays. I returned it. The overall appearance is nice, if it was a different fabric. The shoes are beautiful as always... American Girl is letting the quality go down with low grade products they put out. I remember authentic fabrics and accessories when I grew up with Pleasant Company

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect! I love this dress! It's so cute and yet fancy at the same time. I love the style and the accuracy of the dress for the time period Melody is from. The dress's feel is interesting, but I do like it, though it is wrinkly at first because of the fabric it's made of. The shoes are great and easy on, easy off. I love that the outfit comes with gloves, AG seems to be very happy to give Melody gloves. Her hat and coat set also comes with gloves. They are super cute. I wish there might be a hair accessory such as a hairbow or a headband for the outfit. If you have the chance, I would definitely grab this outfit!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Taffeta - or Plastic?? This outfit looks like one of the cutest ones currently available. Dress style, print, tailoring - all great and historically accurate. BUT - when I first took it out of the box for closer inspection, I was startled by the feel of the fabric! At best it feels like umbrella material, at worst it feels like it could even be made of plastic! It is certainly not taffeta by the longest stretch of the imagination! I am baffled as to how/why this particular fabric was chosen - a much better choice would have been a soft cotton sateen with perhaps a smidgeon of stretch in it, if real taffeta was not available. You may say, it's just doll clothes, but my autistic granddaughter is hypersensitive to the way things feel under her fingers. I have a sneaking suspicion that my Felicity doll will be inheriting this garment. We'll have to work out who gets those adorable shoes..... You can do better than this, AG!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So authentic! I loved seeing the video where the designers revealed this dress was inspired by a dress from the 60's. They did such a nice job! The coloring looks great on Melody. The fabric isn't necessarily the nicest feeling, but let's be honest, dresses like this aren't made out of super soft flannel. Good work, AG! This is a pretty dress. My only complaint is not having some kind of headband or hairbow if you don't want her hairstyling set. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It's beautiful but the fabric choice is lacking... This dress is very pretty and I consider it a must have as it is mentioned in her story. However, the fabric is weird in my opinion. I think it's supposed to resemble taffeta perhaps? To me it feels plastic like and cheap. It would've been nicer as a brocade IMO.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Pretty I really love the print of this dress! The fabric is a nice taffeta. I think young girls will have trouble getting the dress on their dolls though. It fits very snug going on and it seems that the velcro opening could be longer to make it easier to get the dress on and off. I love the pink patent leather shoes! They remind me of a pair I had as a child. I agree with another review that it would be better if the outfit came with a hair ribbon or something else to give it a complete outfit look. The gloves are cute and as a girl I always had a pair of gloves in my purse in case I needed them. I don't have the Melody doll but this dress looks wonderful on Samantha. Since I was a child in the 60s I really wanted an outfit for my doll! This was my favorite of the outfits, it reminds me of the syles worn by Jackie Kennedy. All of the outfits look spot on for the time period though. So just pick your fav!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very pretty! Love it! I will trust AG that it is accurate to the '60s. My sisters and I weren't so stylish! The fabric- colors and design- is beautiful!! The taffeta seems to have a silky feel which I like. Over all it's a beautiful and unique dress. A 'must have' for Melody!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Pretty Hazel and I both love this outfit. It is so very much derived from sixties fashion. I love the addition of the gloves. No proper young lady attended important functions without white gloves. The pattern and colors of the fabric are delightful and authentic to the time period. The shoes are a great finishing touch. I would say that anyone who purchases Melody really needs to add this outfit to the collection.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Adorable! I got this dress during the AG Rewards pre-order event and it's adorable. My only concern is the waxy feel of the dress. I know it's supposed to be taffeta, but the texture is odd. Still, it's a nice addition to the collection and looks great when on the doll. I know AG expects you to pair this outfit with her hairstyling set, but I'd prefer that it came with something for her head anyway.
