Wickfield on AGPT found leaked photos of an outfit which appears to be for the Beforever character Kit Kittredge on eBay and kindly allowed us to share her find here. No exact date for when the outfit will be released, though I'm guessing it will be either part of the fall/winter release later this year or next spring's release. It seems the Beforever characters will be receiving quite a few releases for almost all of the characters, which of course excites me to no end. ^_^ The auction is still ongoing so I will post the link to the eBay listing once it ends.

Front of Outfit
Wickfield found out that this outfit is based off a Butterick pattern for girls from the Sept. 1924 Delineator. That is a good decade prior to Kit's story but American Girl has always been pretty flexible by going up or down a decade in terms of their historical/Beforever line. You can view the image of the inspiration for this outfit on the Witness2Fashion blog (4th picture) here: https://witness2fashion.wordpress.com/tag/golf-and-social-class/
Honestly when I first saw the outfit, I assumed it would be for the 1914 Beforever character, Rebecca. However, Wickfield pointed out that the front of the dress is embroidered with "MKM", which fits Kit's initials "Margaret Mildred Kittredge."
Back view of dress
The listing shows the outfit shown with these silver flats. However, grey market sellers frequently pair random items together that they think fit, so it is very possible the actual shoes for this outfit will not look like this. At least, I am very much hoping these are not the actual shoes. XD
The outfit is really cute and I like the construction of it. It does seem out of place to me among Kit's collection however, and I would rather AG have picked an outfit from at least the 30s. Still, I love my Beforever historical outfits so this will be coming home with me for certain! ^_^
