To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
The dress is really pretty, and my daughters (3 and 4) love it. They got it for Christmas and have worn it every day since. It’s really long, like other reviews have said. I tied up the bottom for shorten it up a little (there’s a tiny slit in one side), so that helps but it’s still too long for my girls (oldest is about 42 inches tall).
My main complaint is that the lace-ish layer on top, although pretty, is terrible - at least for a dress worn by toddlers. It gets caught on everything and has already ripped in multiple places. And large rips - like my daughter’s entire leg was in a hole. I had to cut four inches off the bottom to clean it up and so they wouldn’t keep stepping on it. Also, two of the beads for the snowflake on the front have already fallen off and I’ve had to sew them back on. I’ve also found a few sequins from the sleeves on the floor. I wish it held up better for only four days of use.
But, it is a dress intended for dress up play. So it serves its purpose and my girls love it so that’s all that matters. The accessories are a nice touch too. The earrings don’t stay on very well, but they’re plastic clip ons.
The bottom of the skirt had no opening. I had to cut it myself. Besides that, the dress is lovely. The jewelry is cheap, as I expected from other reviews and the earrings broke immediately, but the outfit works without them. My daughter is a huge Frozen fan, has watched the movies pretty much every day for as long as I can remember, so for me it was worth the money, even with the flaws. She wears a 5t so I ordered a 5t. The dress drags on the ground but fits everywhere else just fine.
The quality is below my expectation, you can see thread near the buttons, and the whole thing doesn’t stretch much. The zipper is quite hard to use. Also I noticed the dress became different after one time hand wash, good for couple time use I guess.
Beautiful dress and accessories, but if your child is a perfectionist this is not the dress for you! My daughter has been in tears every time she puts this dress on because things catch on the skirt, the cape won’t stay fluffed out behind her, and the poorly-sewn sleeves keep twisting on her arms. Probably wouldn’t bother everyone, but this costume has not been a source of joy in our house.
The dress is beautiful and my daughter loves it but the stitching comes out extremely easy. The first one I had came apart after 2 hours. The second one already has come apart since Christmas. It’s so beautiful but it is not made to withstand the 3 year old.
