Meet Outfit

Felicity's meet outfit has had three distinctly different versions. She wore the first version from her debut in 1991 until 2005. In 2005 the meet outfit was changed with the revamp of her collection and the release of her movie, Felicity: An American Girl Adventure. She then received a third meet outfit for her BeForever rerelease.

First Meet Outfit

Felicity's original meet outfit (1991-2005) was an everyday day dress appropriate for a young girl.

Gown

Elbow length sleeves with wide curved ruffles; top ruffle is of print and bottom of white. Curved front waistline with ankle-length skirt is knife-pleated onto the bodice. Skirt has historically accurate slits in the side; so that pocket can be accessed. Velcros up the back.

Felicity's BeForever Outfit.

The BeForever Outfit for Felicity was released in 2017 and is available alone for $36. Notably, this is the only set that does not automatically come with a shift, as it is sold separately in Felicity's Undergarments, or any hair ribbon.

Garters

Thin white ribbons of 12 3/4" long and 1/4" with red embroidery of dots, lines and text; the text reads in caps, "Wove with love for Lissie 1774." These tie around her stockings to simulate actual garters needed to hold up stockings. They come with a card with the following text:

Despite the text, the garters can be accurately worn both above and below the knee.

Bit

A replica of a colonial bit, worth 12.5 cents. It comes on a card to hold it; the card discusses how it was made (cutting a Spanish dollare into eight pieces), how it was the most popular coin in Virginia, and how later the dollare let to the name of the American dollar.

Pre-Mattel, Mattel, and BeForever Differences

  • Mattel Felicity dolls have darker red hair as opposed to the "carrot red" of the PM dolls.
  • PM Felicity dolls have muted green eyes; Mattel Felicity dolls have brighter green eyes.
  • PM Felicity dolls have soft red eyelashes; Mattel Felicity dolls (including BeForever) have standard black eyelashes.
  • BeForever Felicity dolls have feathered eyebrows.
  • BeForever Felicity Dolls have lighter green eyes than the bright Mattel dolls; this was later changed back to the brighter eyes.

Trivia

  • Felicity’s low cut outfits resulted in the body fabric of the first three dolls being changed from white to skin-colored.
  • While the American Girl site referred to the round-eared caps as mob caps, they are still properly called round-eared caps; there was a distinct difference in the designs during the colonial era.
  • When Kaya debuted in 2002, Felicity was pulled from the catalogs with a note saying that she would now be an online exclusive. During this time several of her items and outfits were retired. She was not revamped until the release of her movie and the Elizabeth Cole doll.
  • Felicity was the first Historical Character to have two distinctly different meet outfits before the launch of BeForever, and the only character to be released in three distinct ones. The first version was from her debut in 1991 until 2005. The second was changed to coincide with the revamp of her collection and the release of her movie, Felicity: An American Girl Adventure. The third and current is with her BeForever rerelease.
  • Felicity was available for a limited time to celebrate the opening of American Girl Washington DC in 2011 during her archival.
