The surprise!

I'm posting this late, but, as promised, a post on our surprise items! Picture heavy post to follow.

The surprise was... couture! Two Heritage Clothesline dresses to be exact. Brooke ordered Samantha her ice cream dress and Jess a lovely, red frock. Both are stunning, and we are so happy to have these two new dresses for the holidays!

First is the ice cream dress, inspired by book illustrations.

It is a lovely, crisp, and white with beautiful black ribbon detailing. Very, very pretty! Amazing quality, and looks just like it does in the book! This has to be one of the prettiest Edwardian-era dresses I've seen, even better than those made by American Girl! Samantha looks so beautiful with her dark hair and eyes against the white dress. This dress seems to work for both winter and spring, which is very nice. Samantha is so happy to have her new dress!

Next is the Toy Soldier red dress, which was promptly claimed by Jess. I think it looks very nice on her, red looks very great with her coloring. The dress is made from a rich, red fabric that has white lace detailing. Everything is absolutely gorgeous! This is a great holiday dress.

Well, these aren't the greatest pictures. Sorry for not posting much these past few days!


  1. I LOVE the Samantha dress! If I was still collecting for Samantha I would totally buy one (although I don't see them in the HC shop?). It looks just like the illustration: that's one of my favourite Samantha dresses.

    I like the pictures btw. :) And the red dress reminds me of a Wooden Soldier dress I wore as a little girl.

  2. Sitara,
    Thank you so much for the comment! :)
    And in regards to the HC shop- this dress was available through the American Girl boards, I don't think it was listed in the shop.
