As I recently rediscovered this outfit among my things, I thought I'd post a review. I was given this outfit when I was around 11 years old in 2000-2001, IIRC. I wore it absolutely everywhere at the time, and have wonderful memories of walking through my hometown proudly matching my Molly doll. (Still searching for actual photos of the two of us... ) All pieces are size 10(M), and still (mostly) fit me now; I'm 24 years old, 5'1.
The sweater is still comfortably roomy on me, particularly around the sleeves: they are long enough to reach my wrists, and it's surprisingly warm. I think the style is classic enough that it could still be worn as a mix-n-match piece with jeans today.
The blouse has ribbing around the peter pan collar. The puffed sleeves close with buttons at the cuffs. They don't quite reach my wrists anymore, and the blouse is tight around the neck if buttoned all the way up, but still fits comfortably enough.
A lovely thick material, this skirt is wonderfully swishy. (A bit tight around my 29" waist, and the zipper doesn't quite close all the way... ah, the inconveniences of growing up )
As the beret is 100% wool, it tends to pill/attract lint, and also shrink in the washing machine, so I would recommend hand-washing this item. It's cute anyway.

These dolls are beautiful; although I don't own one myself, I have the books for Elizabeth, Neela and Kathleen and the stories are well-written and engaging. From looking at pictures, my favorite dolls are Elizabeth, Kathleen and Leyla... Such a pity the line was discontinued.
This is one of the few modern outfits I had for Molly as a girl, and she was always wearing it I love everything about it, the pieces are great to mix 'n' match, but especially the little Doc Marten's style combat boots. A+ from me (and Molly, too)
I have this dress, and it's by far Molly's favorite Halloween costume EVER! (She's had other, homemade costumes for the most part)Molly's been dressed up in it almost every halloween since I got it (new from AG when it had just been released) The necklace is my favorite part of the outfit, too, and I agree that the slippers are a tad flimsy, but really, it's not as if the dolls will be walking around in them, right? So it doesn't bug me. (I must add that I really like the idea of wearing the crown upside-down over a veil, I'll have to try that next time!)
I got these as a kid (12 y/o, I think?) and even though the pajama bottoms are too small now, I STILL use the PJ top on cold days because it's so cozy and warm! (I think I might get a brand-new set eventually, I love them so much )
I got this for Christmas as a kid (along with a few of Molly's school things) and absolutely LOVED it! I still have all the original food; sooo glad this version isn't clumped-- ick, that would just look odd to me! I did like the "brown bag lunch" idea, though, so my mom bought me some mini paper bags to put in it, as well. (Since my Molly has a huge sweet tooth, she got a couple more plastic cookies from me: an oreo and a choc'chip, yummm!)
