Rated 5 out of 5 by from A confection of a dress! This outfit is perfect for Maryellen's birthday - or any other "dress up" occasion that imagination can take her to! It is ruffly and crisp - the stuff of dreams when a little girl wants to look pretty! Love the head band and pink shoes that match the pop of color from the flower on the dress!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So pretty! This dress is so pretty! I don’t think I would ever give it to a younger kid as I worry the Velcro and satin would be a disaster. The satin is very thin and would easily be ruined and snagged by the Velcro. The shoes are adorable and the flower is pretty! I love how it looks on our doll!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunningly Beautiful Of all the doll outfits we have bought over the years, I think this is both mine and my daughter's favorite. It is so bright and cheerful, and very well made. It has gotten lots of use in the last 2 years! While it does fit in with the intended time period, it is also very timeless and would be perfect for any doll. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful party dress This dress definitely needs the crinoline to make it look fuller but I feel like that is part of the design/style ( great opportunity to teach a little fashion history).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Spot-on historical design Maryellen's Birthday Dress is reminiscent of a dress my sister wore to a high school function. Tulle was fashionable then, and the ruffles for her dress were sewn onto a tulle overskirt, as these are. Thus, if the user plans to iron out the shipping wrinkles (not many), the tulle can be raised. The ribbon belt is sewn over the seams so it will not be lost. Patent leather shoe colors were just starting out, and Maryellen's shoes are a perfect match with the flower. The modesty of the dress is perfect for a younger girl, too. The only drawback is factory-oriented. The sewing machine tensions were too tight, and the hemline shows the puckers. Otherwise, this is a lovely dress. I am happy to have it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful dress I love the colors of this dress on Maryellen. It looks great with the crinoline underneath. And of course I'm in favor of any AG outfit that isn't totally awash in pink. Beautiful job! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Be wary of defects. This is a beautiful dress, but I would not recommend purchasing online.

Maryellen looks so pretty wearing it, and with the crinoline it's much nicer. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love all but the headband No complaints about the dress or shoes. Not a fan of the headband. It fits a little awkwardly and and the way its shown in the picture exposes the tag. Even with the tag cut off I can see a little of it. Overall a very cute outfit. My mom (who was born in 1954) got nostalgic when I told her that Maryellen wore this dress for her March of Dimes fundraiser. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

I far prefer this skirt length instead of the"fabric deprived" shorter styles of today, on me or my dolls! Outfit does look better in person, with or without the crinoline.The darker pink shoes are great qualiy and go better with the outfit than I thought they would, although dark green would have been great for me. Would highly reccomend! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It Ain't Easy Being Green You may or may not ask why I wrote that title to review this dress. First I'll say that this dress in it's totality is GORGEOUS! It is however one that should be handled with care because of the fine netting overlay. The dress skirt section is poofy enough but as I show in my included photo I would definitely recommend getting Ellie's crinoline slip to make it appear more 50s authentic. I purchased this outfit as one of the sweet sale deals AG offered (buy 1/get 1 50% off). THANKS AG! I hesitated purchasing this because as a red-haired gal I was almost ALWAYS dressed in green. I often wondered what it felt like to wear other colors lol! I DO LOVE the pink flower accent and the overall look of this outfit which is STUNNING on dear Ellie! Now I understand why my mother was partial to putting green outfits on a red-haired girl :) My goodness I've become my mother...dressing my red-haired doll in green! 5 Stars & thanks so much AG for the sale, the AG REWARDS points and even this beautiful green outfit for my red-haired doll :) [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Adorable My daughter spotted this dress in the store and had to have it. We bought it before starting Maryellen's story.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Adorable! With her red hair, Maryellen looks beautiful in this color of teal! This dress is even more stunning in person. The ruffle detail and pink flower are so cute! The dress is a satin material with a second layer of tulle over the skirt part. The sash is the same material as the dress its self just a darker teal. I love the pink shoes with that little white bow on them. The headband is adorable and, unlike some other AG headbands, fits her head perfectly and stays on really well. This outfit is easy to dress her in and is great quality. I would highly recommend purchasing this outfit! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Party Dress A special party dress that is a must have in your collection. A green satiny dress with overlay of green tulle that has ruffles on the skirt and bodice with a pink bow at the waistline. The neckline is bateau and the green hair band and dress are flattering with Maryellen's strawberry blonde hair. The shoes and waistline bow are coral pink reminiscent of Florida style. The white bead necklace and bracelet from the accessories and the additional crinoline complete the 1950's look. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Adorable! We got this as part of the Buy One get One Half off sale. The dress is beyond adorable, only caveat and reason I gave 4/5 stars is because the crinoline is a separate purchase. The dress is still pretty with out it but the crinoline helps a lot. We didn't purchase the crinoline as it wasn't apart of the sale, however I had the novel idea to layer it with a ballerina tutu and it looks amazing. One day we will get the crinoline skirt to layer with but for now the tutu works just fine. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful Birthday Dress Maryellen's birthday dress is a beautiful shade of green. The material is lacking a bit in quality. I love the pleated sash and follow at the waistline. I think the dress would be cuter without the gathered doll, it looks a bit odd to me. The shoes are very adorable and easy to slip on and off. The velcro on the dress likes to get caught on tulle. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must have for Maryellen This is Maryellen's prettiest dress! I have a Truly Me doll that wears it and it looks incredible on her! The dress has a top layer over soft chiffon type fabric. It is well made and will last for years of play. I really love the pink shoes that go with the flowers on the dress. And the headband adds a finishing touch! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dont forget the crinoline slip! When I got my red haired truly me doll I knew this color dress would be very flattering on her. My only trouble was cutting off the tag on her headband but I got it to work. The crinoline slip adds fullness to the dress and in a way reminds me of Scarlett O'Hara's green party dress from Gone with the Wind. It isn't the same style but it is remincent of the hoop skirt. Still it makes a lovely party dress or special occasion dress that can be used not only with Mary Ellen but also any of the truly me dolls It comes with matching pink shoes to go with her lovely pink flower on the waistband to give it that "pop" of color the dress deserves. If you want to dress your doll differently this holiday season look no further. I agree the crinoline slip is worth having.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fancy This dress is so adorable! I love how there is a net-like layer on top of the green layer. The dress is so beautiful with its pink little flower and ribbon around the waist. Maryellen's soft hair looks great with the green headband. But I would recommend getting the crinoline to go with it, to add fullness. This is a great buy!

The color is a rich sea-foamy green, and the pink shoes go perfectly with the flower on dress. The material is durable, in the picture it looked a little flimsy, but I was pleased to find it isn't at all! The length is also a really nice aspect, it hits almost at the knees. Beautiful! :) [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 5 Little Princesses My 7 yearold daughter has just bought Maryellen - and this is one of the outfits she just had to have. This is really cute. Much better in person. The collection - while being very pretty (down to the last historical detail), is definitely geared towards an age appropriate girl. (Thank goodness she is very cautious & intent in her play) the dress from the collection feels rather delicate. Still - a great addition. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for Maryellen! A quintessential 1950s party/gala dress. The color is lovely on ME, enhancing her pretty green eyes and gorgeous strawberry blond hair. The fabric is delicate with just the right amount of lace and ribbon. Cute pink shoes with a white bow accent tie into the flower highlighting the beautiful waist of the dress. A lovely headband, once the unsightly tag is cut off, complete this darling outfit. Great job AG!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEAUTIFUL!!!! This dress is SO MUCH prettier in person than in pictures. The green is so vibrant, it's a bright, rich color that looks muted in photos. The shoes are shiny and bright pink and very versatile. The headband is also a rich green that matches the waistband of the dress perfectly, and the cute little pink flower is the perfect added touch. It's a very feminine, unique gown and I would absolutely recommend it, the color goes beautifully with maryellen's shiny red hair! It's so worth it!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! My daughter has had her eye on this dress from the beginning. I just received it in the mail and although it's for Christmas, I had to open it up to see it for myself. It truly is a beautiful dress. The color is just as shown in the picture and the detail is wonderful. I can't wait to see it on Maryellen! I don't know how it will hold up yet, but if it compares to the other AG doll clothes we have purchased, then there shouldn't be anything to worry about.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An American Girl Birthday Dream I got this item onsite at an American Girl store near me. Unlike the item pictured online, I would recommend ignoring the fluffiness of the dress. Mary Ellen is wearing her crinoline underneath the majority of her clothes, so it's actually not that fluffed up in person. However, the dress actually is structured to flounce out around the doll, so you will get some poof to it when your doll is wearing it. What really drew me to this particular piece were the colors. The material is shiny in person, which works well for a party dress. The quality over all is soft for the dress and headband, and the frills are a gathered material that almost looks like leaves on the dress. I was really impressed that it was so vibrant and felt so nice in person. I got this piece more so to display on one of my dolls, so I do not know how it will hold up to play. I would imagine the dress overlay might be able to tear easily, so I would be careful of that. Also, there's a huge tag on the headband that's almost bigger than the headband itself. You probably want to trim this off before putting on your doll as there is no way to hide it. My only other complaint is the flower looks a little cheap, but it reminds me of the kind of flowers I had on my own dresses like this as a little girl. Overall, I think this is a very stunning outfit set and would highly recommend. The pinks and greens look really good together in person and the style of the dress is gorgeous. It will stand out in any American Girl wardrobe easily, and it is a memorable piece to me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful dress! Great purchase! Maryellen's birthday dress is a must-have! It is absolutely wonderful except that if you are not careful the fabric could snag at the velcro and rip it so you need to be careful when you put it on the doll! We also recommend buying her crinoline because without it, it isn't as full and pretty as it is with it! Dress-The dress is a green color that goes very well with Maryellen's hair and eyes! At the waist there is a darker forest green ribbon that falls down to a little bit higher than the bottom of the dress. It has a fake pink flower on the left side. It has two kinds of material: the bottom one is a light green that is soft and plain, and the one is a transparent green material that could snag on velcro if you are not careful. It has three rows of ruffles on the bottom and two on top. Shoes-The shoes are the same pink as the flower on the dress and they have a little white bow on the top. The sole is just hard black plastic Hairband-The hairband is the same green as the dress with a green bow on the left side.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Beautiful Party Dress This really is a pretty dress. I was hesitant to rate it lower than some of the other American Girl outfits I have but I feel like it is a cheaper quality. The tulle over the dress is pretty but I don't see it holding up to younger children playing with this dress. Especially with the Velcro on the back. Overall it really is a pretty outfit but for the price I would've liked to have seen better materials used. It would've been nice if it came with a cute shrug. :-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Back to the 50"s! This dress is BEAUTIFUL! I love the shape of the neck and the ruffle detail around it and around the skirt too. I rated it lower on age appropriateness because it has the tulle overlay on both the bodice and skirt. It is very fragile and will snag on the velcro closure if very careful attention isn't paid when dressing Maryellen. I almost snagged it the very first time I put it on my doll!...and I'm an adult and was being careful. In every other way it is a fabulous dress...well made and so pretty. I still recommend it but...BE CAREFUL with the velcro on the tulle. :) I got the crinoline too and it's so pretty underneath. Great accessorie.
