The belle of the ballet! With its leotard-like jersey-knit top and attached nylon mesh tutu hemmed in satin ribbon, this showstopper is our spin on your little ballerina's go-to dress of the season. Scoop neck. Slight drop elastic waist. Long sleeves. Above-knee length. Cotton/spandex. Lined (poly satin). Imported.
This is such a pretty dress! I ordered the glacier blue color for my eleven year old daughter and she loves it. My daughter is an average size for her age and usually wears a size 12. After reading other reviews, we decided to order a size 14. It fits perfectly! Thank you, Garnet Hill, for making such lovely girls' clothing!
At 7 years old, my grandaughter is very particular about fit and comfort in clothing. I took a chance with this dress hoping it would be a hit with her. Well, she has worn it four times since Christmas and today is only January 5th!! Today, she wore it with leggings and Grape Ugg boots (also from Garnet Hill) for a more playful/casual look and she was adorable in it. She is a slender 7 year old and the size 8 fit beautifully with enough length to be wearable next year. I purchased the Sugared Plum as purple is my grandaughter's favorite color.
I bought this dress for my niece. She LOVES the dress. Unfortunately, every time my sister washes it, the blue color from the skirt still bleeds onto the white top. She has to wash it 3 times to just get the spots out.
This dress is gorgeous and very well made! The torso portion is form fitting, which adds to it. We have the multi blue and the pink one in a bigger size. The blue dress is one of the prettiest young girls' dress I've ever seen. My daughter loves to twirl in it-making it both pretty and fun!
Overall, I love this dress! It's very soft and is a big hit with my daughter. Missed it when it was on sale, so paid full price, which was pricey in my opinion, but it was a birthday present. Some previous reviewers recommended sizing up, but the 6 fit perfectly on my average (with a bit of a tummy) sized 6-year old . I ordered the 8 as well just in case, but she'd be swimming in it, so I'm returning that one. We have the purple -- beautiful color.
My two little girls, 3 & 6, loved their "pretty pirouette dresses." They wore them to a family dinner and received lots of compliments. The ballerina tutu skirt is in all the stores, it seems, but this dress was a good value as I didn't have to spend more on tops to go with the bottoms.
My daughters wore this to a wedding and had so much fun twisting and twirling! My 10yo needed to go up a size due to her long waist, but my 8yo fit true to size. Great customer service with an exchange being sent right away, just in time for the wedding festivities! Both girls were very comfortable and now enjoy wearing them to church and to school! The top is very much like a ballerina suit, bottom very fancy! Washes well, happily surprised.
I loved this dress so when it was 20% off, grabbed it for a grand-daughter ... have not seen it on her in person, but in a photograph ... I think she really loved it and it looks very cute on her. Bought the cream turquoise, I believe it runs true to size.
Bought the ivory/turquoise dress for my 8 year old daughter. She usually wears an 8, but I got her the 10 and it fits great with a little length that she might get to wear it next year. The top is like a bodysuit, so I didn't want it to be too snug. The dress is gorgeous. I would love to buy all 3 colors! Perfect for dress up or play. Very good quality.
