Updated 7/13 - Added photos of back view, thank you to Muriel and Shannon!
Last month, we saw an outfit appear on eBay which appeared to be a strawberry print dress that many of us guessed to be a new swimsuit for the 1950s Beforever doll Maryellen or something for Bitty Baby. One of our lovely readers, Muriel, was able to purchase the leaked outfit and sent us photos to share of her Maryellen doll modeling it. After looking at the photos, it appears that the outfit is most likely for Maryellen due to the perfect fit and the matching bloomers style shorts/underpants that the outfit comes with. I do not know if the outfit will be released later this summer/fall or next spring, though my guess is later this year.
Edit - Many people have also suggested the tiny print of the fabric is similar to feed sack fabric, so this outfit could also be for the 1930s Beforever doll Kit.

Photos of Maryellen in Strawberry Dress:
The outfit comes with matching strawberry print bloomers/underpants, though it is not pictured. According to Muriel, the outfit does not fit on Bitty, and it appears to be more of a Play Suit than a swimsuit.
The front of the dress has two gigantic pockets (to stash AG's hoard of hazel eyes?).
The outfit seems to come with these cute, green sandals with 3 seed cut out designs. It may come with socks but my gut instinct is saying most likely not.
The outfit comes with a matching, simple, green headband/elastic.
Back view of the dress, this is what the eBay leaked photos showed.
It appears the dress is a wrap around dress that buttons in the front.
According the Muriel and Shannon, it is a real button, not velcro!
Here is a view of how the bloomers/underpants look beneath the skirt.

I have to admit, I was not a fan of this outfit when I first saw the leaked photos of it from eBay. it looked too childish/cutesy, and I assumed it would be most likely for Bitty. However, after seeing them modeled on Maryellen, it really is growing on me. The fit on the 18 inch doll is really nice and the style is not as "kiddy" as it looked when laying flat.
