Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cute, but there are some problems This is cute. I love the dress and the clip, and it’s great that the vest is detachable. However the shoes are just annoying. It is impossible to put them on!! Sure they are cute but my daughter can’t even put them on by herself! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kit's reporter outfit My husband and I purchased the reporters outfit and were pleased with the quality. I kept the outfit for myself, but I am sure anyone of my granddaughters would have enjoyed it. May have to get another outfit. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Superb! I bought this for my dolls about a month ago, and so far I'm very happy with it, but it does have rather thin fabric with no lining, so you can see through it in direct light. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A very cute outfit! Kit's new reporter dress is as cute and detailed in person as it is in pictures! The embroidered collar is a nice touch, and the shoes are very neatly made. I love how the outfit includes her original meet outfit's hair clip in a new color, too! The vest looks and feels unfinished without a lining- keeping the overall rating from being excellent. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cuter than expected but terrible shoes I didn't think I would like this outfit that much but it's actually cuter than I expected! The collar is very pretty and the puff sleeves are adorable. My only issue is that the shoes are terrible- the patent 'leather' is so thin I can see Kit's toes through them and the strap has no Velcro nor is it stretchy and it's near impossible to get them on and once I did I noticed there was a small tear where the strap connected to the shoe. I also wish that there would be more variety, Kit has enough Mary Janes. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great outfit! I really love this outfit. Big fan of polka dots and primary colors, all of which this outfit has!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Shoe design is awful. I bought this and was very excited to receive it but I am so disappointed. Whoever thought this shoe design was a good idea needs to rethink some things. These shoes are supposed to slide on, so the strap does not come off at all. I managed to get one of the shoes on after a long time of shoving and wiggling but I absolutely cannot for the life of me get the other one on. I need a doll size shoe horn or something. The outfit is super cute and actually looks like something Kit would wear unlike all the pink fashions they have produced for her (In "Meet Kit" she explicitly states she hates pink) so I was very excited but I'm extremely disappointed. I feel their quality has gone down compared to when I was a child and these shoes and the outfit, threadbare and off center, are an example of that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cute! This is really cute on Kit. The white shoes slip on easily (no velcro attaching the strap), the dress is one piece with the vest being a separate piece. The colors are fun, we just love Kit's clothes! Glad that AG almost always includes a bow or barrette or headband with their outfits, b/c it really completes the whole look!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cute but fabric seems thin I have AG products all the way back to 1986 and over the years I have noticed the quality is getting cheaper. The outfit is adorable with crisp bright colors but it feels cheap like so many of the outfits do now. For this reason we barely buy outfits anymore but will keep this one because it is so cute. My daughter has asked for this outfit out of all the other options she was given. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great purchase I was on the fence about this outfit for a long time but I'm glad that I finally got it. It's adorable. I love the asymmetric peter-pan collar and the removable vest. I also really like the shade of green used for the hair clip, bow on the collar, and belt buckle. The hair clip is the same style as Kit's original meet hair clip, which I think beats all the hair clips in her old hairstyling set by far in terms of maturity and overall look. My only complaint for this set is that the belt buckle is visibly plastic, which is why I did not give it 5 stars for quality. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cute as an extra Christmas outfit I do prefer Kit's previous reporter outfit to this one. The red and green color scheme makes it more appropriate for the holidays. I would have preferred a different style for the barrette since this is the same style as the one that came with her original Meet outfit, That being said, the pieces all fit together nicely and it is a cute outfit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Christmas Dress? This is a very cute dress, but I think AG made this dress too Christmasy. Instead of reporter dress it looks like a Christmas dress to me. It is very cute and the embroidery along the neckline adds nice detail to the dress. I don't use the vest much, but it is also pretty cute. The hair clip is a typical Kit clip and is great to pair with other outfits. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from so detailed I love this outfit! The colors the contrast! The detail! My favorite part about AG is that they take the time to add the extra details. The hair clip and belt buckle are so cute and add so much to the outfit. I was glad to find out that it fits my older AG doll. I have one of the early models and some of the outfits are a bit too snug. This one fit perfectly. And the only reason it wasn't a 5 across the board was because the shoes were a bit too snug. I had to use a shoe horn to get them on. This outfit won't be going to my nieces, unless the shoe loosen over time; though I am glad to have an excuse to keep it myself without feeling guilty. Thank you for another great outfit! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Hard to get on doll The colors are super cute, and the hairclip is adorable. However, I could not get the shoes on my Kit doll due to the lack of strechiness in the shoes. The sleeves also looked pretty funny once I got them on her arms. I was pretty disappointed in this outfit, mostly because it was on my wishlist for a long time, and it lacked in quality once I recieved it. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Polka-Dotty This outfit is very pretty. I have found that it looks nice on Ivy, Rebecca, and TM 56. (I do not own Kit.) The hair clip matches the bow and the stitching on the dress very nicely. The shoes slide on and off easily, even though I don’t see any hint of stretch. Although at first I found the shoes a little odd, they are growing on me, and they seem well made and durable. I do feel that the vest and skirt together is a bit much. I’m glad AG didn’t make the vest attached, so that I can mix and match. It might have been nice, though, if the ‘dress’ was two pieces, offering more possibilities. Also, the white ‘blouse’ part does seems a little thin, so if your little girl is a particularly enthusiastic player, this might not be the the best outfit for her doll.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cute polka dots I love polka dots so I had to get this for Molly (I don't have Kit.) It looks really cute on Molly, although she doesn't wear the vest. I also don't like the shoes. The blouse part got a little dirty so I hand washed the whole dress in cold water, the red from the skirt bled onto the blouse. American Girl kindly replaced the dress for me. Next time I will just spot clean. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super cute! :) I got this outfit a few months ago when it was on sale for $20, and I love it! I don't have Kit, but I have Samantha and the red really looks great with Samantha's dark hair. I really the blue bow at the top, it just adds a lot of charm. And the collar of the dress is just to cute! My favorite part though is that the polka dot vest is removable! If you have other red outfits, you can really mix and match with the vest! Overall, I really recommend this product, and even though right now its $28, thats still a pretty good deal for American Girl considering some outfits are over $50. If your thinking about getting this outfit, get it! You won't regret it :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An absolute delight Kit's new reporter dress is as darling as the first one. The fabric is historically believable, but has a modern day wrinkle-free feature. The dress arrived in perfect condition, including the perfect pleats. From my time-era photos, I find that these polka dots are historically a little too large, but they are very cute anyway. The over-sized collar bow is not historic (blouse bows were attached and more scarf-like), but the color equals the belt buckle trim. The matching vest was common in the '30s. My favorite feature is the embroidery made to resemble rick rack. Yes, it does, and using real rick rack (which was common in the '30s) would have been impossible with the collar's curve. The barrette is perfect, and how fun that it matches the buckle and bow. Kit may have worn patent leather Mary Jane shoes, but she would have worn them with anklet socks. (I'm sure we all have a spare pair.) These are slip-on shoes which fit well. All in all, this is a darling, time-authentic outfit. I'm glad my daughter and grand surprised me with Kit's reporter dress. Thanks, Kids!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from a second look I've come to trust "Tilly"s great attention to detail in her reviews. In this case, she encouraged me to take a second look at Kit's Reporter outfit. I now see and appreciate several aspects of the dress that I hadn't noticed before. Thanks Tilly! I might have overlooked this one if I hadn't read your review!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Adorable This outfit is truly adorable. It is also very much what a liitle girl would wear. I love the bright red fabric with polka dots. All of us agree though that we prefer the dress without the vest. The white shoes are cute and easy to put on the doll. The whole outfit is easy for the younger girls to handle by themselves. This is a very good value for the price. This is a must for all Kit owners but would be fun on any American Girl Doll.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Polka Dotty! I just love this outfit! I don't have Kit but am always looking for something that I can adapt for Molly and this just looks adorable on her! While I bought 3 Kit outfits yesterday at American Girl Place in Chicago, this one is by far my favorite. I really like the fact that it looks great with OR without the vest. Bright, colorful and cheerful sums this outfit up. Great job on this one, American Girl!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SWEET, Well-Made 30's Era Outfit for Kit! Of all the new outfits that just came out for the Historical doll line, this "Reporter Dress" for Kit is one of the best values in the line. At $28.00 there is plenty of excellent quality here for the money. And the polka dot outfit is historically correct to the Depression era period of the1930's. (I DO truly appreciate that the polka dots are small and in scale with the doll and are not any larger then they are.) So I disagree with the reviewer who thought the polka dots were more "Bitty-Baby like". (Perhaps she does not know that small Polka dots are a great choice for a girls dress design from the 1930's.) I LOVE the wonderful, tiny red and green embroidery on Kit's round white collar and the green bow sewn to the side on the collar is an extra special touch, along with the matching plastic little green belt buckle that bring the outfit together beautifully. The skirt is WONDERFULLY pleated with larger, but nicely-sewn pleats that don't show up that well in the photos of this dress. So seeing them when the outfit arrived to me was a lovely surprise that I also appreciated. Other little touches like the short puffed sleeves and the matching bolero jacket help make this outfit a true winner! THANK YOU A.G. for the cute green geometric barrette too! (Kits hair always needs one in my book!) And the white "Mary Jane" style shoes complete what is a great look for this ensemble. Well Done AMERICAN GIRL! Best $$ value of the bunch!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Eye Catcher I didn't plan on getting this dress tonight. The one I wanted first, was out of stock already. Once I knew that, this one really caught my eye. It reminded me of something "Minnie Mouse" would approve of. All of us ladies looking at it agreed...that was it. It has a cute fit, bright colors and is so "ten years old".

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not my dear Kit! Why must you use these awful Bitty Baby colors on Kit? this is awful. I wish you would have put more effort into this redesign.
