As seen on The Today Show This five-star dress in eco-friendly Green Cotton is supersoft yet terrifically tough with reinforced tiers. And it just gets softer and more appealing with every wash. Full and flared silhouette with gathered tiers. Three-quarter bishop sleeves. Empire waist. Knee length. Imported.
ABOUT GREEN COTTON® Offered by Garnet Hill since 1994, Green Cotton products are made under the strictest adherence to eco-friendly production standards. Each step in the process must have as little environmental impact as possible. The award-winning result: fabric that feels as good as it looks.
My daughter loves this dress and wears it constantly. The pony print is very cute, and not too crazy. My only criticism would be that the color has already faded slightly after the first two washes, and I find the fabric on the neckline/seam binding poorly constructed. It's hard to describe, but the way it is stretched the fabric looks cheap there...stripey/ribbed texture instead of solid like the rest of the dress.
.When I ordered this dress I was worried it might come across as a nightgown and it does. We ordered the ribbon stripe and it definitely looks like a nightgown. But, a really nice, well-made, cozy nightgown, so we're keeping in and might even get more.
The print is fun, a good quality dress that runs a bit big. My daughter is a slim seven year old and I will save the dress for next year. I ordered a size 8 but would have had to go down at least one size for it to work this year. Long sleeve comfortable dresses are great to throw over leggings for formal and more-formal settings.
This dress is a nice, soft fabric but it is super long. It looked like a nightgown on my daughter (of average - 50th percentile - height) so I had to return. Sleeves were the right length, so getting a smaller size would have made that an inappropriate length.
Like everyone else has written, this dress runs huge but comes back down nicely after washing (still a bit big but better too big than too small!). The material is thinner than I expected but is super soft and the colors are gorgeously vibrant (I purchased the red & green one)
I'll keep buying this dress for my granddaughter, until she outgrows this style. It's pretty, practical, durable, wearable for many occasions & compliments a little girl's figure. It's always a surprise to see the new season offerings of colors & prints.
I have ordered my daughters several dresses in the past in size 4 and they were great. I ordered the horse pattern, which my daughter loves but when she tried it on it was enormous. A little long is fine but she could fit another child in there with her, too big all around and on the shoulders.

A cute and comfortable dress. Soft cotton. My daughter is an average sized 9 year old. I ordered the size 10 and it is roomy without looking too big. Colors are rich and as shown online. The polka dots are adorable.
