John Lewis Princess Dressing-Up Costume
I had exactly the same experience as other reviewers - I was so excited to give my daughter this dress on Christmas day but the skirt was torn in several places within a few hours of her wearing it. It is such a proper 'princess' dress and comes beautifully packaged but it just isn't John Lewis quality. My sister stitched it all back together for me only for it to then rip in various other places! Really disappointing.

My daughter has had this dress for nearly 3 years now and loves it. It is quite long compared to other brands of dressing up clothes but that suits us as my daughter is tall for her age. It is well made and comes with its own hanger and protective cover. We have NOT had any issues with fabric quality or broken seems but we treat this dress carefully as it is our favourite.

very poor quality
My daughter has worn this dress for a couple of hours today for the first time and it has already torn in three places. A serious design fault in a dressing up costume for small children. Very disappointing. Not up to your usual high quality John Lewis!

A lovely dress to look at but poor quality of material or manufacture. The seam at the front was torn within 10 minutes of being worn on Christmas Day. This was a great disappointment for a 4 year old. It was exchanged by the Nottingham store without question but have great doubts about the long term durability of this product. After all it is a play dress. What a pity it is not up to the standard of the Disney dresses she also received.

This dress looks lovely but is poorly made - my daughter received this for Christmas and it was torn at the seams within few hours of wearing (just normal walking around and sitting - not through rough games!) - this should be better made and last longer - poor quality for John Lewis and for the price.
2 stars only because it is so pretty and gave much pleasure to my daughter, but have now had to mend it several times and it is only 3 days old! Made for children so should be more robust.

Not very hardy!
This is a beautiful dress and my daughter is delighted with it. She received it as a present on xmas day but unfortunately within an hour the chiffon overlay had started to come away at the seams. By the end of the day the whole front had several rips and it's a very expensive dressing up dress. There's no doubt any little princess will love it, but its not made to be moved around in!
Size wise my daughter is about to turn 3 and the 3-5 fits her but is quite long. She is of average size.
