Here is everything you get in the box:
Here is the front:
It's a fairly simple looking dress but the colors look gorgeous on Addy. Here she is in just the dress:
Blue Dress in silhouette but it's not as fancy.
Of course it doesn't need to be! It comes with this fancy pinafore:
It has two working pockets that are very nicely reinforced on the back:
It's also trimmed with purple ribbon:
The socks are just plain white, knit socks:
The boots are made of white canvas:
I decided to compare these new shoes with Addy's Lace-Up Boots.
|Old boots on the left, new boots on the right|
The new boots don't even have eyelets for the laces to go through.
Here is a close up of the eyelets and the laces of the older boots.
Moving on to the sewing accessories; we'll start with the pincushion:
On the AG website it says that Addy can hold this pincushion.
She also gets a small measuring tape:
And finally we are at the scissors:
With some fiddling and some trial and error I got Addy to hold them:
I also love that the scissors and tape measure easily fit into a pocket:
Here is one more picture of Addy with everything:
And now comes my favorite part of the post. The part where I just spam some pictures for the fun of it!
Here is my gorgeous Addy:

And finally have an extra Ida Bean shot:
And that's about it. Final thoughts? Well I love the dress and the pinafore. The dress has gorgeous colors that look amazing on Addy and the simplicity of the design ensure that the pattern isn't fighting with the dress for supremacy. Or with the pinafore! That pinafore might be one of my favorite ones ever. The ribbons, the wide straps and the pockets make this my favorite piece of the whole set. The socks and boots I can pretty much live without. Especially after Kaya's amazing boots, I find Addy's very disappointing. However the accessories are amazing, well made and adorable! I especially love how things look in her pockets.
This is a set I am pleased to have in my collection. Even with the boots of disappointment, I'm still thrilled. And I just love the way it all looks on her. Of course Addy looks good in just about anything!
I hope you guys enjoyed this look at Addy's new sewing dress. Next time I'll be showing you my newest project and then we have one more special edition set to get through! Till then!
