*This outfit was worn by Molly in the book Molly's Surprise*
Evergreen Velvet Dress I Item #MCO $22 (price increase from $24 to $28 January, 2012)
"Molly’s Christmas dress of evergreen velvet has collar and cuffs of snow white lace. Styled with a princess waistline, it’s full circle skirt twirls when Molly spins around. It comes with crisp white bows for her braids. Even her pesky brother Ricky must admit Molly looks beautiful in this outfit."
I have one of the versions of Molly's 1st Christmas dress. I know they changed the lace a few times on this dress, so please post your pictures of this PM dress here if you have different lace!
I love the thick feel of the velvet dress. It's so elegant on Molly. The skirt is a full round skirt, so she can twirl around (like she does in the books.)
The cotton lace is very subtle around the dress's collar and sleeves. It's just enough embellishment to make it look very stylish for a 9 year old girl in the mid 1940's.
The original set came with cream colored hair ribbons, but I like Molly to wear the green ones that came with her plaid jumper and blouse.
I don't know how the newer version measures up to the quality of the thick feel of this dress, but I certainly love this version.
