Beautiful and comfortable!
April 28, 2013
My daughter is on the autism spectrum and very picky about how things feel. Special occasion dresses can be tricky, but we went with a cut that has been successful in the past and this dress was no exception. My daughter loved wearing it. I had bought the extra tulle petticoat for underneath to make a fuller skirt, but there is really no need. The skirt is nice and puffy even without a slip.
My daughter was between sizes and we went with the smaller size to make it skirt more tea length. It fit very true to the measurements provided online. I was surprised it was still so long since my daughter is quite tall for 7. (We ordered the size 8, but could have also gotten the 10).
The tulle is a plain quality tulle, but is hemmed beautifully. My only disappointment was that the rosebuds on the skirt are only on the front of the dress, not all the way around...but for pictures it was perfect! There is also a beautiful silkish sash that ties into a bow on the back.
Pros:Scallop hem, beautiful full skirt
Cons:Length might be too long for shorter girls. We ordered size 8 for a 53inch 7yo and it fit perfectly.
