Mollys little dress is made of the nicest material , feels like a very soft polished cotton. This outfit is simply adorable on her. The Sailor hat is just the finishing touch. This is just so sweet and one of her more feminine outfits. If you dont have this yet, I suggest getting it. I cant say enough about this outfit!! A 5 star masterpiece!!!

I love this dress! It's made from nice, crisp linen and buttons with REAL buttons. The buttons are darling little flower shapes and are very tiny and could get lost easily if they fall off. Molly's white body shows through the neckline a little bit. It's such a simple, classic little girl design! The hat is soft, brushed cotton with a light blue gingham band. The hat is a little small for PM heads, but a good tugging will get it to stay on OK. This outfit looks great on any girl from any time period. A+

This is the sweetest dress and it even has real buttons. My Molly wears this more than anything else she owns. The fabrice is very nice and makes me think of linen. I imagine this is the first dress a little girl would choose on a hot summer day.
“How few would believe that from sources purely imaginary such happiness could be derived.“
I really like this outfit. Both the dress and hat. The dress is very pretty and looks comfortable. I like the specific shade of blue used- it is not too light and it looks very good with Molly's coloring. The buttons are very nice- although some little girls with smaller hands may have trouble with them. The hat works well with the dress and it is not awkward. A+

Molly's Route 66 Outfit
Pro's: Gorgeous outfit, nice fabric, great quality!
Con's: Couldn't think of anything negative except: that for me, it takes too long to put it on! You have to button each individual button because it doesn't close with velcro. But, for some, this just might add some historical appeal! Detailed Review: LOVE IT! This is my favorite outfit for Molly. The fabric feels like linen-type and is very pretty. The detail on this dress is so amazing... I just adore those sweet flower buttons! The dress buttons closed. It does not have velcro. The hat to finish it off is very cute, but I don't tend to use it because I don't want to mess Molly's bangs up. It still looks very cute without it.
I'm giving this outfit an A. It's my favorite Molly outfit that we have so far.
The blue of the dress looks really nice with Molly's coloring, and I love the material. I like that it doesn't close with velcro. The hat is cute, and finishes the outfit off nicely. I do wish it came with hair ribbons, but I think I can make some easily enough.
It's a shame that they retired this outfit, but I recently found it on Ebay NIB for right around retail price.
Probably my favorite Molly outfit of all time. A+!!! I love it on Molly, but my #28, Natalie, loves it even more! The color is beautiful and I've had no trouble with it at all. Unfortunately I lost the hat, but I still have the beautiful dress. Very easy to use and very pretty.

I loooove this outfit and it is my favorite outfit of Molly's and possibly my favorite outfit that AG has ever made. It is the quintessential dress for dolls, simple and sweet. The color brings out the blue of Molly's eyes as well as the rich chestnut brown of her hair. The style is so so pretty and the cut of the dress is very flattering on her. The material feels and looks like linen which has a great drape and quality to it. The hat is adorable and finishes off the outfit. With the brownie camera around her neck and holding the route 66 banner Molly is the picture of sweetness that transports you back in time.
