Molly’s Holiday Dress

Have you seen that the BeForever character, Molly McIntire, has been re-released? You can find her in a special bundle, only at CostCo stores. She has a new meet outfit, with red and white saddle shoes, and comes with a book and a new pair of pajamas.  This was the perfect excuse to stitch up a dress for her!  (These photos are of my daughter’s Molly doll. We did not buy the one at CostCo as we already had her.)

Molly’s father is a doctor, serving in World War II.  Much of her story centers around her father being gone, and then coming home.  You can find her books on Amazon here:  Ad:  https://amzn.to/2DkIlPD.

The Sugar n Spice dress is the perfect pattern to make a replica of Molly’s original holiday outfit.  Molly’s was made with velvet, and I used a rich, Kona cotton.  I made the dress according to the pattern, with just a shorter (pinafore length) skirt.  If I was going to make it again, I might move the neckline up a bit, drop the waist by 1/2 inch and use a circle skirt instead of a gathered skirt, but I think you will agree, the dress sure looks pretty close to the original idea.

I wonder what other patterns and styles can easily be adapted to fill out Molly’s 1940s wardrobe.  Who else added Molly to their dolly family this year?
