The matching outfit was available as the Palace Blue Gown (a one-piece gown) for $98; it was phased out around 2000.


  • The stomachers and gowns originally had silver snaps in two styles: square (c. 1991 - c. 1996) and round (1996 - 2010). Gowns with square snaps will only work with stomachers with square snaps, while dresses with round ones will work with both square and round snaps. In 2010 the snaps were replaced with velcro.

  • Two bobby pins were originally included in the set, but were later removed.
  • A special edition mini doll of Felicity wearing the Christmas Gown and Stomacher and an abridged copy of Felicity's Surprise was released in 2011 to celebrate American Girl's 25th anniversary.
