On-trend, soft, practical, and NO ironing!
My only complaint with this dress is that my 7yo daughter claims because it's so soft she should be allowed to wear it 24/7, including in bed! She has a pretty good point, so I can't really argue! The issue I often find with girls dresses is that if it's stylish then it's not practical and they can't play in it properly. This is definitely not the case. The fabric is super soft and stretchy, but the perfect length and cut that it doesn't get in the way when she's running around, climbing equipment etc. The inter-season weight means it also doesn't blow up it it's a bit breezy, which is a big plus. Having the option to wear it relaxed and boxy or tailored with the sash is really handy, especially if travelling, as it gives multiple looks from the one item. Fit is relaxed. My 7yo is 127cm and wears the 9/10 in this, but easily could have worn a size down (or even 2 sizes down, for a shorter more fitted version). She will get a ton of wear out of it, and I know from previous pieces that the stretch bamboo lasts and holds its shape and stretch literally for years, even with my constant machine washing and tumble drying.
Did I mention you don't iron it...ever......yeah...that's just "mwah"! *kisses her coffee mug*
