Molly's Red Plaid Dress

Molly wears this dress when Mrs. Hamley dies and when Aimee comes to Hamley Hall. In both scenes, the lighting is dark so it is hard to get a very good look at this dress.

It buttons down the front of the bodice; I assume there are darts on either side of the closure.


Note the interesting gathering at the top of the sleeve!

At the cuff on the sleeve:Somewhat better lighting:

Is there a closure of the skirt somewhat on the side?
This dress can be probably recreated by Sense and Sensibility's Romantic era dress pattern but you may have to make up some details! :-)
