If this outfit was not absolutely adorable, then i wouldn't have purchase it again for the 2nd time. Its absolutely the most uncomfortable dress (according to my 4 and 5 yr old students) i have had children balling their eyes out that the fabric itches their neck.
However they are only wearing it for performances so i keep purchasing.
Order 2 sizes bigger because there is no give in this outfit. Recommend having the girls wear a nude leotard underneath to its less itchy.
This costume is adorable! The neckline is cut high and the size xs and s we ordered were not true to the measurements suggested. m worked fine. All of the necklines ended up being trimmed with ribbon I found at Joann Fabric's that matched perfectly. That addition decreased the discomfort and the girls didn't want to take them off!
Be wary when ordering this in size XS. The trim around the neckline does not allow for any give. The leotard is stretchy, the trim is not. Even my tiniest little one had trouble getting this on, so I ended up removing the trim and restitching it to allow for stretch. No trouble with the size S, however, as the trim was properly attached to allow for stretchy fabric. Children with ample bodies may have trouble getting this on over hips and tummy. Best to order one to two sizes larger than measurements.
