Sweater - Love the sweater! The cap part of the sleeve is so cute. It is a little thinner than the meet sweater, but I like that because it's less bulky on. The color is a unique teal color that I thought might look tacky, but is actually really pretty. (It also allows it to work in general, not just for Christmas.) The red poinsettias are knitted in as part of the sweater design, not appliquéd on or something like that, so that was a plus. And, finally, the sweater feels super soft!
Skirt - The skirt is a little tight. I had to take Em's bloomers off to get it on, but the bloomers fit fine under it. I think it could've used just a tad bit more elastic. Still, it's very simple, but pretty. I liked that it is not pleated all the way around, which gives it a different look and takes it away from a more schoolgirl stereotype. It works well for mix and match, even outside the 1940s. The material is thick and feels like wool (I don't think it is though).
Socks - Normal AG socks...
Ribbons - Typical AG short ribbons. The color coordinates with the skirt well.
Shoes - The shoes are a PITA. Anyone who can get them on over socks is a saint. UGGGH. As it is, Emily wears them without socks, and they are still difficult to get on. Still, the red-colored saddle shoe is a unique addition to an AG shoe collection
Overall Grade - A- for the shoes and tight skirt, but bonus points for quality materials. In general, the outfit is in the low price range for AG, and I think it's worth the price.
I don't have Molly, so this is Emily's outfit in my house.
