Very well-made, but a little too heavy
March 26, 2013
The Snow White Princess dress is a beautiful gown. I purchased it for my daughter's 4th birthday party--obviously a Snow White-themed one. The gown is extremely well-made, the stitching even and precise. As someone who sews, I know that working with taffeta isn't easy, so I was impressed with the workmanship. The dress however, is rather heavy, due to the layers of tulle which is used to make the gown bell-out. After a about 45 minutes, despite her desire to continue to wear it, my daughter asked to take it off. I would recommend that the company look into making the dress the same way, but without the tulle, or perhaps making the yellow skirt of the gown out of silk instead of taffeta, which is quite heavy. Overall, it is a gorgeous little gown, and will make a wonderful addition to my daughter's dress-up closet.
Pros:Beautiful design and craftmanship. SOOO much better than the Disney gowns. Excellent long-term use for dress-up after a special event usage.
Cons:Gown is simply too heavy and hot for a little girl to wear for a long period of time. Too much tulle, and I suggest taffeta be replaced with perhaps a silk charmeuse in order to made the gown lighter in weight.
