John Lewis Girls' Bib Tunic, Grey
Difficult to iron
I must admit that this dress looked lovely when my daughter wore it for her first day at school. However, after washing it was very difficult to iron the pleats back in again and they don't seem to be "permanent pleated" in the same way as some of her skirts, and the pleats almost fall out after washing. So although it does look good once it's well pressed, it's just too time consuming to do so so I won't be sending he to school in it very often.

Not up to standard
Comes up small and bobbles after washing. Had to throw out as they weren't handing down as such bad quality.

Why no bigger sizes?
My daughter has been wearing this dress ever since she started school. I know she is tall for her age but surely she is not the only girl who needs a bigger size? Please make a larger/longer option!

Very small around the waist!
I have purchased this pinafore for several years now and have always been very happy with it. However, with this years version, the waist size is much smaller, to the extent that the equivalent size bought last year is several inches larger around the waist, than this years supposed equivalent! My daughter is of average size for her age and the new design has no growing room around the waist at all. Why has the waist size altered so much from one year to the next?
Sadly I have had to return the new version which is a shame as it is such a lovely style. Please sort your sizing out for these pinafores John Lewis!
