Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful! I bought this beautiful coat awhile back with Melody’s matching dress and it is such a wonderful outfit. The coat is made well and the matching fur hat is just adorable on Melody. All of Melody’s outfits are so 60s and made beautifully, so much like I wore at that age in the 60’s. Great job AG [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well crafted My daughter had wanted this coat for some time, and had been gazing at it longingly in her American Girl Encyclopedia. We finally visited the AG store in NYC, where she was able to get her hands on it. She was so pleased, with the look, the feel, and the fit. She really loves it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Too Cute! Even though I don't have Melody, the coat, mittens, and hat look adorable on my doll. The buttons are so cool, the hat fits perfectly on my dolls head and the mittens are great size for the doll. If you are afraid for your doll to get "cold" then I recommend this coat FOR SURE!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly like we wore in 60s-FABULOUS reproduction! I cannot say enough good about the accuracy and detail of AG Beforever dolls and accessories. This coat and hat with faux fur, and the cut of the coat was so very flattering. Melody looks fantastic in in --any doll would! Love the gloves, too. Surprisingly easy to dress and undress Melody in this outfit. So well made and not too small, nor too large. The double-breasted buttons were a feature for quite some time. I still love it. A++++++ American Girl! Yet ANOTHER HIT!!! By the way, I put Melody and a friend (Samantha with hair styled similarly) in a sleigh as one of my premier Christmas decorations.)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great quality, but difficult buttons. The quality of the coat is great, just as if it was real clothes. We love that it comes with gloves and the hat, it definitely brings the outfit together. Plus, the coat is easily paired with other outfits that we have. Only concern was the buttons, my daughter is 7 years old, she can dress and undress her doll all on her own; however, she was not able to do the buttons. We feel the buttons are too large for the holes, and it was kinda stiff and difficult to close her up. I'm afraid that the struggle of it can make it wear and tear quicker than normal. So I have reinforced the buttons with more string, but its still a challenge for my little one. None the less it looks great, and very fancy. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved it so much I bought two. I got Melody's fancy coat back in November of last year. When I saw it displayed on the Melody Ellison doll, I knew that I had to get it. I love the way that it feels and the details and styling reminds me of something that Audrey Hepburn might of worn back in the sixties. I loved this so much that I asked for it again along with Melody for Christmas. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful coat--Must own piece for Melody This is one of my favorite pieces in Melody's collection. The coat is so lovely and is genuinely even more beautiful in person. I love the extra touches like the fur lining and the hat, which is incredibly soft. Melody looks amazing in this piece and if you own this doll, it truly is a must buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love at first sight! When I saw this coat it was love at first sight. I didn't even realize it had a dress that would complete the collection. The cream faux fur lined jacket has 6 round buttons and ha e faux fur lining the wrists and neck. It comes with a faux fur hat that's sure to keep your dolls head warm while making her feel and look beautiful. White mittens complete this look. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice and Cosy! Although it is almost spring we picked up Melody's coat during the buy one get on half off sale. We already had Melody's holiday dress and this coat goes perfectly with that outfit. It's nice and thick and the faux fur trim is a great touch. Melody will definitely stay warm in the cold Michigan winters with this set! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So beautiful This coat set is so beautiful! It's very thick and seems like it will stand the test of time. My only concern is that the stitching for the button hole is a bit lacking and will become frayed without additional support. The coat transfers glitter onto other clothing, but I personally don't mind that because I love glitter! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must-have collection piece This coat is easily one of the most beautiful articles of clothing you can purchase at American Girl. Although this may appear a bold statement, the quality of the material (sturdier than most and with more detail), the period cut (so flattering for these particular dolls), and the color (a nice contrast to Melody's darker skin) make it a great choice for the price. If you want an outfit for Melody, but cannot afford to purchase them all, choose this coat. I highly recommend it. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Coat Love this set. The only way this set would be better would be if the coat was lined. Cause lets face it. Michigan winters are deadly cold. And that coat would have been lined. Love that this coat actually buttons!!!! AG stopped doing functional buttons for so long I was prepared to rip Velcro out when I got it. The hat isn't super wonderful since it's not lined either. But I love it. It's really soft on the outside. I haven't used the gloves yet. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful coat! After reading Melody's story, I knew I needed to have this coat and I'm so glad I purchased it. The material is high quality with soft fur lining the color, sleeve cuffs, and a matching hat of the same material. The buttons on the coat are real and the gold patterning on the jacket really makes it sparkle. This is definitely a must have in Melody's collection!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Gorgeous I love this coat and hat! We got it as part of the holiday collection but I would have purchased it alone. The fur hat is adorable and the quality is superb. The real buttons on the coat is just the quality I would expect for AG. My daughter loves dressing Melody up for fancy parties with her other American Girls. Worth every penny!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! Melody's fancy coat set is absolutely amazing! I have never purchased AG coats before as they never seem to fit over what the doll is already wearing, but WOW! This set is perfect! The coat is a nice material and very pretty, it's also quite long. I love the fur embellishments on the cuffs and neck, very cozy! The hat is probably my favorite part. It is unbelievably soft and so adorable. It's easy to get on too. The gloves were an added bonus, but I did find them a little hard to get on and get the coat on. I did discover that the coats buttons are real, not velcro. I appreciate the authenticity but it would be easier to just have velcro. The buttons are easy to do though, and they are pretty large. This coat is a must have for any doll wardrobe!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cute Toasty Warm Coat For Melody in 1960's Detroit This is really adorable! It looks so classy and also so warm for winter wear. Melody can wear it nicely over her matching gold dress, the coat length is perfect for the dress length. It all looks FANTASTIC together! The faux fur is a perfect touch on this classic 1960's coat. You have to check out the cute buttons on this coat, as they are so pretty! What a nice touch, and the scale of the buttons is truly good too. The fur hat is darling, and flexible, so that girls can easily put it on Melody. LOVE the pom-pom on top of the hat. (Those were such a big part of any 1960's winter ensemble for young girls.) A lovely, high quality set. AND thanks AG for adding the short white gloves, we didn't go any where nice without them back then! I think the girls will really enjoy this soft, toasty winter outfit very much. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
