  • Like Samantha and her Play Dress and Pinafore, Molly's outfit is referred to as a play outfit because she would have had a much more casual lifestyle than girls earlier in history and would not have had as many labor intensive chores; therefore her outfit is more designed for playing in so that nicer clothing won't get dirty. The set is seen in her paper dolls as a gardening outfit.
  • Molly, like Kit Kittredge, is one of the earliest girls chronologically who would have been able to wear pants even casually. However, pants were not considered proper day-to-day, public, or school wear for women and girls and would have only been worn for play and at-home work, and girls were still expected to wear dresses or skirts to school.
