More About TrulyMe™ #60: From the American Girl® website, She has light skin tone, layered black–brown hair, and blue eyes. She arrives wearing a lilac dress with a sparkly waistband and sequined mesh accents, cotton underwear, and turquoise shoes.

More about the Custom Thimbles & Acorns Dress: This beautiful dress is hand-made by Shari Fuller from the Maria Antoinette Zone Front Gown pattern. This historical dress is made with high quality cotton fabrics that are true to the time period. A delicate straw hat completes the look! Your 18" American Girl® doll will look fabulous in this new dress.

More About The Pattern: This zone-front gown is a Robe a l'Anglaise (a gown with a bodice that closes in the front without the use of a stomacher) with diagonal pieces sweeping from the top center front to just before the side seams at the waist, pening up into the skirt. This creates a separate piece across the stomach (a separate "zone”). The gown pictured on the front cover is made in one color and set off with a sheer organza trim, but the color of the center “zone” can be changed to give it a completely new look. The gown bodice closes down the front with hooks and eyes, edge-to-edge, with trim along the center front. The back of the gown is made in the En 'Fourreau style, a method where the back of the skirt and the back of the bodice are one piece, and the bodice portion is pleated and sewn down to create the shaping. The sleeves are full length with a double organza ruffle along the bottom edge and placket. The trimmings consist of gathered bands of organza. The standout feature of this gown is the wide red belt with rhinestone buckle. This PDF pattern is designed to fit 18 inch dolls such as American Girl® or other Similarly Sized Dolls.

Truly Me #28 has warm coloring that goes so well with the muted colors of the fabric. The dress looks like it was made for her, even tho a girl from Marie Antoinette’s time probably wouldn’t have short hair. Thanks to Thimbles and Acorns and Pixie Faire for these lovely choices.

I love the fairer skin and beautiful blue eyes of #60. With the wonderful bonnet, fairer skins were frequently found in those days. Tans were not considered proper for ladies. My how things have changed!

Sherry

I like both dolls, but I think #60 models it best because I feel that she is more historically accurate for the time period of the dress. Her fairer skin fits the ideal that ladies should not expose themselves to the sun. Doll #28 looks “sun-kissed” and would have been working-class. (no offense to her! Don’t let her know I said that, lol!)

I really had a hard time picking between the two. I have a weakness for dark hair and blue eyes, but I just had to go with TrulyMe #28. Her brown hair and eyes reminds me the fun I had reading the Laura Ingalls books when I was younger.

Number one: the dress is absolutely beautiful in style and fabric choice. Both dolls wear it well, but I believe #28’s warm hair & eye color go best with the fabric tones. Doll #60 was a very close second: with her dark hair, she looks like the quintessential “proper lady” in a very ladylike outfit.

I like number 28 because her hair brings out the red in the dress or does the red in the fabric bring out her hair? Either way, I still go with 28.
