Updated: The wonderful Skayh754 shared detailed photos of how this set looks modeled on her Felicity doll! You can view the photos here: http://lissieandlilly.blogspot.com/2016/11/detail-photos-of-felicitys-new-outfit.html
I've been so busy with my rotation hours at the hospital this semester that I haven't been able to post near as much, but this new leak is too exciting not to share!
Back in August, we found that the 1774 historical character Felicity's books would be reprinted in the new Beforever format to be published next February, and rumors flew that the doll herself would come back from the American Girl archive. A few days ago, Gabbie sent us the link to what appears to be a new underclothing set for Felicity and it gives more evidence that we may very well see our feisty Revolutionary War era girl come back! I have added it to the Master List of Leaked AG Releases. ^_^

First and foremost, aside from the excitement that it looks like Felicity will be re-released, I am about to roll to Mars and back with giddiness that AG is still making historical underclothing! It looks like this set will have an undershift, laced stays, and a bum roll.
I'm going to start with the bum roll, because honestly, why wouldn't I? :D This piece was never originally part of Felicity's collection the first time around. And yes... I did have to look up the name.
You can find more information on the bum roll here: http://demodecouture.com/late-18th-century-skirt-supports/
Felicity's old under garments also included plain white stays, and it makes me happy to see she's getting pretty new stays! I can also see a lot of people using this for steampunk outfits too. ^_^
The shift looks like the standard shift that AG used to include with the Felicity and Elizabeth dolls.
I told myself to not get my hopes up when I saw the information leak about the reprinting of Felicity's books but it's too late, my hopes are UP! :D I really hope AG brings her back for a short stay, and from the looks of this leak at least, it seems like AG is going to spruce her wardrobe up but still stay true to her time period. ^_^
