Meet Outfit

First Edition

Kit with Meet Kit.

Kit's meet outfit reflects the fashion ideals of her time period. The combination of twinset sweaters and skirt allow versatility and thus more wear out of clothes. The skirt is intended to simulate feedsack print, showing how things were recycled during the 1930s; however, Kit wears this outfit before her family starts having financial troubles.

After the launch of BeForever, the set was sold (minus hair accessories) as Kit's Classic Outfit for $36.

Sweater Set

Lavender knit sweater set of blouse and sweater. The blouse is a short-sleeved crew-neck style with snaps in the back rather than velcro. The cardigan, also crew-neck style, is long-sleeved with working buttons on the front.


Ivory skirt with a green, purple, and orchid floral print. It is pleated symmetrically with a flat panel in front. It closes on the side with Velcro, though originally it closed with a zipper.


White cotton bloomer-style underpants with elastic around the legs to make them puffy. Kit's underpants are similar to Samantha's, Molly's, and Emily's; however, they do not have a ruffle like Samantha's and Nellie's.


Ivory colored canvas t-strap sandals. Silver metal buckles.

Early editions had functional buckles. Later editions had decorative buckles with velcro closure.

Hair Barrette

Green plastic barrette with two open diamond shapes. It resembles the jade Art Deco pieces that were common in the 1920s and 1930s.

BeForever Version

The BeForever Outfit for Kit is available alone for $36.

Dress Like Your Doll: BeForever

A children's outfit inspired by Kit's BeForever Meet Outfit was available:

  • Ruby Pom-Pom Top: $32
  • Garden Blooms Skirt: $42
  • Red Ribbon Hat: $22


  • Kit was the first new doll released once Mattel had taken over American Girl.
  • Kit is the only Historical Character whose meet outfit originally contained no velcro.
  • Kit was the first noticeably short-haired historical doll; her hair is cut into a bob, a style that became fashionable in the late 20s and early 30s. Melody also has shorter hair than most other historicals.

Prototype Kit Outfit.

  • A draft sketch of the prototype Kit outfit showed items similar to the classic meet outfit. The sweater set was white; the skirt was blue; the hat more resembled a straw-style cloche.[2] Caitlin Waite, the model who provided her likeness for the Kit illustrations, explained in a post on the /r/americangirl subreddit that the change to a knit-style cloche was due to a last-minute decision done by American Girl when the initial batch of straw hats fell apart rather easily, resulting in a change in style and forcing Waite to fly back to Middleton for a re-shoot with the new final meet outfit design.[3]
