My 7 year old daughter saw this long-sleeved velour dress in the Hanna Andersson catalog shortly before Christmas, and decided that it would be the perfect dress to wear for our annual Christmas Eve party this year. Since it was on sale for $29.50 (a considerable discount from its usual price of $49.50!), we ordered it right away! My daughter knows from experience that Hanna Andersson offers stylish and attractive kids' clothing, and is a huge fan of their comfortable pieces. I know that Hanna's clothing wears well, is easy to care for, and is always exceptional quality merchandise.
This dress is a cotton/poly blend, so it's super soft and easy to wear. My daughter is a stickler for comfort, yet she wore this dress all day on Christmas Eve without a single complaint! Although it is pretty enough to wear for a holiday, it's not so dressy that she couldn't wear it to school or for a lesser occasion. The fact that the dress is loose-fitting and falls to mid-calf means that my daughter will likely be able to wear it even next fall.
If you've read my reviews of other Hanna Andersson merchandise, you know that I have been a fan of the brand for years. This dress is another winner in my book!
