Mod Doll Monday - Help Us Decide Who Wore It Best

Hi everyone,

The question is simple, which doll models it best? You vote to help us decide which doll wears it best and one lucky participant will receive the winning doll and an adorable outfit from Thimbles & Acorns

 

More About The Dolls:

Girl Of The Year Gabriella™:  Gabriela - the 2017 Girl of the Year™! Here is how she's described on the American Girl™ site, "She's a true talent who gets creative for a cause. The 18" Gabriela doll has warm brown eyes that open and close, and curly dark-brown hair. She has a huggable cloth body, and her movable head and limbs are made of smooth vinyl. She comes with the Gabriela paperback book, plus her signature outfit." Retail value: $115 

Beforever Melody: According to American Girl® Melody has deep-brown eyes that open and close, and thick black hair. She comes in an authentic 1964 outfit including, a bright blue-and-green houndstooth A-line dress with a blue cowl collar, a blue bow on the chest, and blue bows on the side pleats, a blue ribbon headband with a bow for her hair, underwear, socks, and shiny blue patent shoes with bows on the toes. Includes the paperback book No Ordinary Sound, the first novel-length volume of Melody's classic series.

More About The 1,2,3 Wrap Dress: This simple A-line wrap dress is based on a popular design from the 1960s.  It is made with only one pattern piece and requires no buttons, zippers, or ties to keep it on.  The dress featured is the actual cover example shown on the 18" doll which is the modern version with an asymmetrical hemline.  The outfit also includes a mini silver handbag, silver flats, and a floral hair tie - adorable!

Like the look and want to make your own? You can get the pattern here:

Love the look, but don't have time to shop? Shari also put together two Pixie Packs with all the supplies needed to make either dress for either size doll! Shop for those here:

I think Melody wears the dress best of all. I like her sleek smooth hair style. She has a confident pose and is ready to go shopping for more Pixie Faire styles. I had a dress just like hers and I loved it. Even made it myself. I learned to sew at a very young age because my mother was a seamstress and taught me.

Melody, gets my vote-it just has to be, as those bangs are simple and suit the lines of the dress just perfectly IMHO

Melody’s simpler hairstyle accords better with the lines of the dress. Gabriella’s curls are so fussy that they overwhelm the dress, especially in the delicate shade shown. Might be a different story if the dress were in a more substantial color.

The dress style is reminiscent of the 60’s and both dolls wear it well. While Melody has a hair style that compliments this look, Gabriella looks beautiful wearing the outfit and proves that a great style never goes out of fashion! Gabriella gets my vote!

Both ladies bring a style of “Pizza” and I hope it ends up being a tie. I vote for GABRIELLA only because she is a little more contemporary with her stanza. How do you vote for one or the other when both are as darling as the other.
