I bought a cute new Our Generation outfit for my dolls recently. I’m kind of in love with it and had to do a review (full-length photoshoot coming soon!).
The set is OG’s Brighten Up a Rainy Day Outfit. It’s $18 and comes with four pieces: an umbrella, rain jacket, dress, and rain boots.
The periwinkle babydoll dress is a simple item that cuts off just above the knees. I like how basic it is because it works as a plain sundress, or you can add accessories for a fancier look.
There’s a lace overlay on the bodice, and the dress velcros in the back.
Next up: the raincoat. It’s made of clear vinyl with a coral pink pattern that looks like flower petals to me. I like the pink and blue together, it’s young and vernal.
The jacket closes in the front with two plastic snaps.
Unfortunately, there are no pockets, but the coat does have a hood.
I found it kind of difficult to pull the hood over my doll’s hair. I had to unbutton the jacket and push all her hair over her shoulders, and even then, the hood was a bit tight.
While I did get the hood to fit, I think it would work better on dolls with shorter hair, so you don’t have to try and stuff some of it down the back of the jacket.
I have mixed feelings about the rain boots. They’re made of pale mint green rubber and are quite cute, but I had some problems with them.
They’re too small for American Girls. To get the boots to fit my dolls, I had to cut slits down the backs. Plus, the minty color doesn’t really match anything in the outfit.
Finally, the best part of the outfit: the umbrella!
Here’s the inside of the umbrella. The opening/closing device (idk what it’s actually called) functions just like a real one.
To help the doll hold the umbrella, there are elastic straps on the handle.
When the umbrella is closed, a thin piece of fabric can be wrapped around it and velcroed in place to keep it shut.
I was disappointed that the shoes don’t fit American Girl dolls, and I think there are too many shades of blue, but I do love this outfit. It’s adorable, perfect for spring, and I’m a bit obsessed with the tiny umbrella.
I hope you enjoyed the review! Have a good day, friends. :)
