I received my lavender Twinkle Doll set on 12 January (yes, I know this is a little late but I had other things I wanted to post first!) and to be entirely honest I am both impressed and disappointed by it. Impressed because it's a really wonderful set, quite high quality for the price, and I love it and disappointed because wow... that dress is so darn short!
Before I launch into the rest of the review I'll share my sizing information, I'd say the JSK and blouse both fit a maximum bust/waist of 95/78CM and the JSK length (excluding straps, which are adjustable) is 77cm. 77cm! I'm 168cm tall and it is almost a miniskirt on me, which really bummed me out because I was looking forward to having something sweet but simple. As it stands, for that reason alone, I'm think of selling off the whole set. Having this experience, on top of the time when I bought Loyal Rosette, is really reinforcing that Angelic Pretty and I probably aren't going to get along, except in the occasional special circumstance. Which is a bummer, but ah well.
But as I said, I am very impressed by the quality. The JSK has some tulle in the lining for volume and one of AP's famous pockets. The fabric and the construction in a few places is less high-quality than one would expect from a lolita brand but on the flipside, there are three different and very good laces on it. The hem lace in particular is soft and adorable and features cakes, probably because it's the same as was used on the Whip Factory special sets.
The blouse has that same lace on the collar and is rather nice, if basic. The headbow likewise is of good quality and a nice shape. The socks are super adorable and have a good amount of stretch to them - they fit my hearty calves and still go over-the-knee and though the pattern stretches out to fit it doesn't distort in a bad way.
Despite the shortness, I'm hanging onto this for a little while consider it. In the end I may keep the headbow and socks but sell the JSK and blouse. Or I may invest in a nice underskirt. Or something. I'm not too sure but I hope this review was helpful!
