We opened our parcel as it arrived, excited to see the dress we had to review for my 3 year old daughter inside. After opening the outer packaging, we were greeted by a clear, see through bag printed with Vertbaudet on it. I liked this as it meant we could get a peek at the dress prior to opening.
On first impressions we were very impressed the dress looked fresh, summery and a very girly occasion garment. In our eyes an absolutely perfect choice for any summer function; such as a wedding, a christening or a party.
The dress is made from 100% cotton voile with a satin finish which provides the eye with a very pleasant experience. The spoke stitching just below the chest and above the hem gives the item an added dimension. The dress has Broderie Anglaise straps which very sweetly crossover at the back. It is fully lined for added comfort and this has a Broderie Anglaise trim along the bottom. It has a round neckline to the front, lower cut back and sits below the knee, which I like a lot, as I like clothes that are child-like and do not look like a mini adult.
The sizing and fit are great. I have a small and petite 3 year old so we reviewed the size 2. It had plenty of space in it allowing my wild one to run around, spin and easily get about in. The size range is great and is available from 2 years to 14 years. This allows matching siblings for special occasions to be done easily.
It washes well and was like new after it had been machine washed, dried and ironed.
The item is more than worth the retail price of £26 and at that price is a true bargain. I would highly recommend both the item and the brand. We have even ordered it in another colour!
Well done Vertbaudet – this item had both Mum and Abbie’s thumbs up!
