I vote for Tenney, though they both look great. I love her freckles and the way she is wearing the hat. Back in the day, these hats were worn to the front covering the head like hers does, and not worn to the back.

This was a tough one, as both girls are beautiful in this outfit. I love the freckles on Tenney, but also the bangs on Maryellen. So I chose Maryellen, as my granddaughter has just recently started wearing bangs, and I can see her as a little pioneer girl in this beautiful little bonnet. Thank you, Shari, for sharing this beautiful little outfit, and Thank You also, Cinnamon, for this wonderful opportunity to win both doll and outfit. 💕

Thanks to Pixie Faire and Shari for this darling set of country-styled girls!! The outfit looks like it was made for Maryellen’s coloring with her strawberry blonde hair and green eyes, but Tenney does the outfit justice because she looks like she just stepped in from doing chores with her tousled hair and freckles and she’s ready for a cool dipper of water and time under a shade tree with her guitar! Tenney got my vote.

I love Maryellen’s strawberry blond hair, but rhink she’s not quite right for this outfit. Tenny just looks right in it, so she’s my choice. Her hair style enhances the Prairie Rose dress. Thanks so much for creating this pattern and for offering it for this giveaway.

I think Mary Ellen wears it best! She looks flushed from running home from school on an autumn day to help Mama water the saplings. Absolutely love the combination of fabrics used for this Little House style costume. Makes me want to pull my L.E. Wilder books out of the attic!
