Review of Carpatina’s Purple Flower Dress

I posted twice in one night so keep scrolling down!

A fellow blogger saw Carlie wearing the purple flower dress and asked me if I would do a review on it. I’ve never done a review before so here it goes!

Note: I rarely buy outfits directly from American Girl or Carpatina because I get them a whole lot cheaper at consignment stores, rummage sales, or ebay. I got this dress on ebay. The dress I bought came with a hat and shoes but if you buy it from Carpatina you only get the dress, petticoat, and a purple ribbon headband.

One reason I love this dress is the back of it! There are snaps! No velcro! Plus, all you have to do is snap the ribbon belt on the doll. You don’t have to tie the bow, which is great because I”m not very good at making neat bows!

The front of the dress has beautiful detail: flowers line the bottom of the dress and the delicate lace has a purple tinge to it.

And the petticoat to make the dress look full underneath.

I highly recommend this dress and Carlie does too!

Hi, I'm Heather (the human) and Jacky (the doll) wanted us to start a blog together about all the dolls in my room. I collect 18"dolls such as American Girl, Carpatina, Magic Attic, and Kidz n Cats. I love dressing them up and creating photo stories for you to enjoy! I'm a Christian and you will see a Christian influence in this blog because I can't help glorifying the Lord!

  1. Thanks for posting this! I have been considering buying it off amazon, but I am not sure that it is worth $30. Do you think it is?

      I probably wouldn’t spend $30 on any doll outfit unless I REALLY wanted it. I think for a dress and a headband (no shoes) $30 is a bit too much even though it is beautiful and great quality. I got this dress for only $24 and the hat and shoes came with it!
