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!

The slight yellow tint to the green looks nice on both dolls, as it accents their skin tone. Gabriela wears it best. The hairband looks nice in her her curly hair. It is a really nice dress, and the accessories are equally nice and really complement the colors of the dress. Thank you for sharing.

I have to choose Melody because she looks just like my Lily. However, the pattern is so pretty. I love the wrap dress. Wish I could wear it. The mint green is so pretty with Melody’s brown hair and eyes.

They both look adorable. I remember that dress style being very popular in the 1960’s. My mom had a red shantung silk dress in that pattern that she had made. She would flip the opening from back to front for different occasions and for different looks. Since my mom had black hair and bangs, I chose Melody because it immediately reminded me of my mom. She would have gotten a real kick out of seeing something she’d worn on a modern doll. Bravo!

Gabriela with her long curly hair is so adorable. The wrap around dress tops it off.

What a difficult choice! I love them both, but I’d have to give it to Melody – she gives the dress a real 60s vibe.

Such a cute outfit! I think Melody wears it best because her straight hair goes better with the 60’s vibe.

I think Melody wears it best!

I made this dress for myself back in the 60’s when I was around 8 years old! It was one of the first items of clothing that I made for me to wear and I wore it untill I grew out of it! Melody has the perfect hairstyle to reflect my memories of that dress of my own.

Thank you Shari and Cinammon.

I feel that Beforever Melody models the pattern better. Because Melody’s hair style is straight it just works better with the straight lines of the dress.
