|The tag that caught my attention.|
The particular outfit that I picked up was sold for $9.99 USD and included three pieces: a sleeveless top, a sweatshirt and jeans. Compared to standard-sized Barbie outfits, I thought that seemed reasonable (and of course compared to most BJD clothes, that's practically free!).
Before we try the outfit on, in case you're not familiar with the dolls sizes, here's a quick photo of a similarly sized doll with some other common sized friends:
|On the far left is Ipleshouse EID Chase who at 71cm, is|
the same height as BFF Barbies (although the Barbies are
quite a bit slimmer). You can see that he towers over the
American Girl, MSD size, and Monster High dolls next to him.
Before trying the clothes on any dolls I'd been assuming that the tops would probably fit fairly easily, but had my doubts about the jeans. I needn't have worried though, because once I dress the guinea pig (Volks SD16 Amethyst) the jeans actually ended up being the piece that fit the best!

The neck line isn't perfect, but
it's still serviceable.
Overall, while the quality of this outfits isn't great, I think it's more than acceptable for the price point (I would wash the jeans before leaving them on the doll though - they seem like they might stain). And considering how near-impossible it is to find mass marketed doll clothes in this size range, I'd call this a success even if the fit is imperfect.
|A parting glance.|
