Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sparkly dress! Gorgeous little dress. Festive for Christmas and New Year's dress up. Melody looks adorable in it but looks beautiful on all the dolls. A definite winner. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Melody Glows in This The fabric is great, the style is great, every detail is perfect. My only fear is that the velcro will catch on the fabric a little bit. Perfect for girl and her doll! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful I really like this dress, as does my daughter. It is very pretty, but she doesn’t particularly like the feel of the fabric. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My daughter got lucky! LOL My daughter saw the coat for this outfit and fell in love with it. When at the counter to purchase I realized that the dress and leggings weren't included so needless to say we purchased this also. SMH [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from OH MY! I had this dress in blue!! I love all of the authentic Melody accessories. Back in 1964, as throughout my childhood, my mother MADE all my clothing-- including my dress for the Senior Prom, and in Jr High a blue dress with lighter blue lace in precisely this pattern! I almost wept to see it again!! The tights, shoes, headband, trim....it is all there and so beautifully made with quality! Melody looks just as a real girl with a hard working mom would. A++++ to American Girl!!!! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Christmas Outfit! My daughter received this outfit for her Melody doll as a birthday present. She cannot wait until Christmas time to dress her doll up so festive! I was pleasantly surprised of the awesome quality of this dress! I thought it would be a flimsy, lace-like material and it absolutely is not! It is made of a very durable, thick material yet it is very soft to the touch. The tights have survived lots of rough play from my 3 year old with no snags or tears and the headband has not stretched and fits Melody well! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very pretty dress! I love this Christmas dress! I thought it would be a scratchy lace fabric. It's smooth more shiny and looks so pretty when the light shines on it. Adorable style and well made. Very easy to get on and off the doll even the headband and shoes are easy to put on. This color looks incredible on Melody! She is just cute as can be wearing this! Not sure I'd buy it for a young girl because of the light color and worry about getting dirty but otherwise a great gift for the doll lover at your house!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Quality control needs a boost The dress looks lovely. The fabric is strange. Feels like plastic or something. The shoes have bows and one is a thinner ribbon than the other. Come on! Someone could have seen this. Details matter at any price. Why is quality always an issue. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Retro Dress Melody's Christmas Outfit is very beautiful and the cream and gold fabric looks great with her coloring. I love the lace fabric and it reflects light which makes it look very glamorous. I also love how accurate it is to the 60s and it is definitely a must have if you have Melody.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous!!! Love this outfit! Very beautiful unique fabric where lace has nice shimmer but does not snag as incorporated into fabric but does not look cheap at all. Nice 60s silhouette with cute ribbon accent with front bow. Shorter dress comes with matching tights. Black shoes have nice velvet bow detail and headband sweet touch. Highlight of outfit is easily the beautiful high quality fabric of the dress. Love that it goes with Melody story. It is special gift for New Years / birthday.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Dazzling Dress! Perfect for All Ages! I ordered Melody Holiday Dress for my daughter, and we were amazed at the quality and design! The outfit is made of a unique material, and the gold lace detail "shimmers" in the light. One of my favorite details are the gold ribbon bows on front. They add just the cutest touch! My daughter also loves how the velcro doesn't snag the dress. The headband is very adorable as well. There are so many cute details in this outfit, and I would recommend it for all ages. It's a must-have for any Melody fan! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Dress Ever!!! This is one of the best dresses I have ever purchased from AG! It looks so much prettier in person, and looks great on almost any doll. The dress itself is gorgeous. The tights are a nicer thicker material then previous tights I have gotten from AG. The shoes really make the outfit pop, instead of being washed out with too much light colors, like some of the winter outfits are, and I love the fact that the bows on the shoes are velvet, not the standard plastic that AG uses on flats. The headband is the perfect touch to dress up the outfit. It's so adorable and great quality. Definitely a must buy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful 1960's Design! Perfect for Melody! This dress WOW'ed me! As a child growing up in the early 60's, this gold metallic look was SO very "IN" for party wear, even for kids. I would have been "over the moon" to have a dress like this beautiful creation to wear to church or for Christmas! It looks fantastic on Melody, and is not hard to put on the doll. The tights are necessary, as the hem lines were getting shorter by the mid 60's, so colored tights were also very "in". For those who wish the shoes were also metallic gold....NO WAY! No one had gold shoes, but we all had fancy, shiny, black "patent-leather" dress-up shoes for church and special occasions, JUST like these black shoes for Melody. (Someone did excellent research here.) The whole look is stunning on the doll, the girls will truly love it, it's so gorgeous for Christmas! Two Thumbs up on this outfit A.G.!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Shouldn't have come with tights! Melody's gospel New Year's outfit is indeed pretty. Dress is short since it supposed to be a mini dress. What I thought were long stockings for her turned out to be a pair of tights. Like putting them on yourself you have to work with them just to get them on and look right. Be aware of the fact that they can snag like any other pair of tights. I would advise putting these on first before the dress. That headband was also a pain to get on. Had to work 15 minutes just to get her hair looking nice again. Melody is now in her holiday outfit and it seems hardly unlikely that I will be changing her out of it. My recommendation is that you keep her in the original socks she came in and put the rest of the outfit on her if you are considering buying these dress. Single leg stockings would have worked better for her. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for the Holidays We bought this dress along with Melody's Fancy Coat and they are both darling. The two look great together and, in my opinion, would be perfect as a Christmas present for any little girl. My only wish is that the shoes were not just black with a black ribbon. I think the outfit would have looked cuter with a gold shoe or cream shoe with some gold embellishments. The shoes are very nice by themselves and since they are simple black my daughter uses them with other dresses. Overall, we really like the outfit. Probably would be 4.5/5 stars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely ADORABLE Dress This outfit is perfect for Melody. The dress style and length is accurate for the time period, and the material it is made out of is certainly high quality - it is not simply a printed pattern! The headband lifts Melody's hair in a way that gives it a lift. The shoes have a subtle black bow made of felt, which is a great addition to the ensemble. Last of all, the tights are thick and do not snag easily. This outfit is adorable, high quality, and certainly worth the price! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hipster Gold This dress is super cute in that mod 60's way. The texture of the fabric is different than other AG items, and the pattern holds up to the texture. My daughter pointed out that it fits in perfectly with one of last years Holiday Dresses. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Much Better In Person! I wasn't crazy this outfit online or even in the box, but I wanted to support Melody's collection. However, it's really beautiful once you get it on an actual doll! The material is thick while the gold color is really festive and quite striking Melody's deep brown skin. So, if you have dolls with tan or dark skin tones, this dress will look really good on them. Overall, Melody's collection is flooded with bows on pretty much everything. This outfit has three bows on the dress, one for her hair, and some on the shoes. It might have been nice if this one dress had no bows on it leaving them as finishing touches on the shoes and headband. Still, it's my second favorite outfit in her collection! Would recommend for sure!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Too Short I think Melody's Christmas dress should be longer. I don't think mini skirts were in style in 1963.
