I also bought Molly's pajama's and think they are absolutely darling!! They are so "40"s, and I should know!! They fit perfectly, and the little pockets have elastic tops that are gathered. The print is out of the 40's too. They velcro in the back, and are very crisp and fresh looking. I,for one, think Molly would love them. You can't have just one pair of pajamas!
The slippers are a cute touch, go perfectly with the pajamas and give Molly a little bit of Hollywood "glamour"!
I too wondered how a little girl would feel with them on, since the material is a VERY thick and crisp broadcloth, almost too heavy to sleep in. A doll wouldn't matter, but if they do soften up after washing, then that would help tremendously. With their thickness, they should last for years and years!!

I love these pajamas! Mine don't feel as stiff as some others have said theirs did. They are a nice, thick material and really well made! I give the top and pants an A+. The slippers are a hard pleather material, with bottoms similar to the Sweet Kitten Heels from a few years ago. I'm not sure that I like that type of material for a slipper. It doesn't seem cozy or comfy to me. I also don't really like the seam at the top of them, B-. Overall, I give the set a solid A. Since there aren't any photos, I decided to take some. They are on my Vika, since Molly only wears her red striped pajamas around here.
This review is for the 'Floral Pajamas" set. I purchased these on 3-3-2013. Pajama set: These are a two piece set. There is a top and a pair of full length pant style bottoms. And, a pair of matching slippers. The fabric is a good weight cotton. It is strong, polished cotton and pretty thick. The printed pattern is a light yellow and light blue plaid on white. In the center of the plaid boxes are small dark blue rosebuds. The overall effect is very pretty. The trim is made of a dark blue cotton piping, simular to the d. blue rosebuds. Also, there are dark blue satin bows as decoration. The Top: The top reminds me of a shift. The sleeves are 'cap'-style ruffles. The decoration includes the curved/rounded inset at the sholders. This was popular in the early 1940's. The neckline is straight across and has a small ruffle along the top. A d.blue bow is centered on the middle of the neckline. There are two rounded pockets with a gathered ruffle. This has elastic and gives slightly. They have the same dark blue trim around them and d.blue satin bows. The back has a velcro attachment. The Bottoms: These are well made. They are pants with an elastic waist. They fit very well. Molly can sit-up in them. The waist is high enough for her. There is a dark blue cotton piping trim at the cuff of the legs. Which is a very nice finish. The Slippers: Cute Blue Mules, with and elastic back for fitting. I like the style, they have a seam on the top, and look realistic. They fit well too. I'm not happy with the small "kitten" heel. I know Molly would not have had these heels. But, I'm sure this is made for kids, as well as adult collectors. Overall: A+ I am very well pleased with these PJ's. They are the 'Summer" PJ's Molly needed. I am the most impressed though, with the fact that they (AG) made sure that the "Plaid" matched up with the pieces on all of the top and bottom seams! That is hard and very nice. As well, the plaid is on a bias. Which means that there is a lot of care put into this outfit.

These sweet summer pjs are perfect for any girl from the 40s forward. The material is a thick plain cotton with ribbon trim and elastic in the sleeves. The little pockets are actually pockets but I don't know what Molly could hold in there, they're so small. The pjs appear to be well made. They don't feel stiff to me but they did smell faintly of chemicals so I washed them in Woolite. The pjs are not generously cut, so if you have a mid-90s PM Molly, they won't fit. They just barely fit my white bodied Molly and she's the skinniest of all my girls. I had to adjust the Velrco in the back to make them a little looser. The pants are a bit tight. Her white neck shows a little bit over the neckline of the pjs but not really enough to notice it. The slippers are hard plastic with an elastic band to hold them on the back of the foot. They fit PM feet only because of the elastic. They're hard and have a weird seam in the middle of the top. They have a high heel and don't seem like comfortable slippers to me.
Overall grade: A-
