Ordered this pink sweater in child-small for my very slim 8 year old granddaughter. It fit perfectly with possible room for more growth.
No complaint from her about itching but she wore it over long sleeved leo.
She was very happy with it.
My only complaint is the odor of the garment when I opened the package. My nostrils were assaulted by overwhelming smell much like going down soap aisle in grocery store. What's that all about? It took a couple of sudsy washes and multiple rinses to eliminate odor. I couldn't let my granddaughter wear it until I did.
I also ordered same sweater in black, child medium, for her older sister. It smelled only like new garment so no problem.
Thanks Discount Dance for great price on this item ($19.25.) The dance studio had very same sweater on the used rack for $15.00. It was well worn and had a stain to boot.
I like this sweater a lot. It is perfect for the cold days in the studio, because Marley floors can be super cold. It's a little bit itchy, but not too bad, and I personally don't mind, plus, it's not really an itch rather than little tickles. My friends used it for backstage warm ups at the Nutcracker, I use it in class.
Overall, a terrific sweater with almost zero cons.
