The ¾ length sleeves are stitched along the shoulder and back of the arm instead of under the arm giving it the look of inset sleeves.

Love ,love the doll. Her face is wonderful. I'm thinking of ordering another doll.
I ordered a Matilda through this site after receiving the notice they were being offered, after having considered buying one of the AGAT dolls for more than a year. The doll arrived in beautiful condition, expertly packed, and sooner than I expected. The Matilda doll herself is simply lovely. Yes, she is very different from the traditional 18" American Girl-type many of us are so fond of--but in a good way. I am really going to enjoy having her among my other dolls. I find her to be very nice quality, and after nearly 30 years in doll collecting I can say this is one purchase I had no disappointments with.
I bought Matilda on a whim when I found a good price on her a little while back - she was my first non-American Girl collection doll, and I. Love. Her. Seriously she is the most beautiful doll I have ever photographed - there is so much character in her face, like she's both winsome and wise. Oddly, she has this perfect quality of being more human than most dolls but also looking a lot like an old-fashioned porcelain doll. Simply put, I think A Girl for All Time is making the loveliest play dolls on the market today! Matilda's joints and articulation are really different if you're used to AG. She's almost as tall as AG, but slimmer and more graceful - the characters are meant to be 13 years old, and I think they have the prefect bodies for that - longer limbs, like an adolescent, but still with childlike torsos, and facial features that are sort of ageless. The best part is that her head both rotates and tilts, which gives her a beautiful variety of poses and expressions. She has joints at her elbows and knees, which are not maybe as flexible as I could wish, but they're nice. She stands very solidly. The only thing is that her hands and forearms curve somewhat oddly - I can't figure out how to get her arms to just look relaxed by her sides. A good solution is to tuck her hands behind the small of her back, as you often see done in promotional photography for these dolls. Her gown is absolutely gorgeous, and I was impressed by all the distinct layers of clothing she has on. All are closed with metal snaps that will hold up to play. Her shoes are a little bit prone to falling off, but nothing too unmanageable. I can't wait to dress her in modern clothes (she'll go by "Tilly," then) and to try braiding her incredibly long, incredibly soft hair! Three cheers for Matilda! I'm a convert - Clementine is next. But I want them all.
I purchased Matilda some months ago (unfortunately, before I knew the AGAT dolls were going to be carried here!). The Tudor gown she arrives in is just lovely. I will be honest, for the first two or three days I wasn't certain that we would bond, but with each passing day I grew to like her more. I like the fact that these girls aren't "pretty" or "cute" in a traditional way. Their beauty comes from character. She's made very well, with a very sturdy construction that will stand up to hours of play. I highly recommend Matilda and the other AGATs for both girls and collectors. You won't be disappointed! The three patterns are just icing on the cake.
