The jumper, sweet and simple and very suitable for modern wear, was worn by Molly in the scene near the end when Roger Hamley proposes. Of a medium denim-blue, this could be made of a number of fabrics: llight wool, heavy cotton, or even a firmly woven linen.

The bodice is fitted with double darts and has a low round neckline. Around the neckline, down the front and round the hem is a white, straight-edged lace trim. I would estimate its width at about 0.5″ to 0.75″. There are white buttons down the bodice front and skirt. A narrow waistband separates the skirt and bodice. In episode three, Molly wears a matching belt with this jumper. The skirt front is smooth while the back is either gauged or finely pleated.

You could wear any number of blouses, but here is a summary of the two I noted with this jumper: The first has a wide, square collar edged in lace. It has long sleeves and plain cuffs. The second blouse is similar in style, save it has a narrower collar.

Be sure to check out the Inspired Interpretations page to see Mrs. Chancey’s version of this charming ensemble!

    I just made this yesterday! it isn’t quiet the same in that it only has one line of trim and the skirt isn’t so full (I couldn’t help that though, I ran out of fabric!) but I really like it! My mom asked right away to borrow it sometimes! I wear it with Molly’s apron, and it looks SO good! I made the dress from med blue denim, and it works good, the fabric is just the right weight. it was my first ‘real’ dress cause I finished the edges, and it’s something I could wear to the store.
