"I usually don't write reviews but I always read them so when I was asked to write a review for the colonial girl costume and since I was so pleased with the purchase, I thought I would write my first review. My daughter needed a Molly Pitcher costume for her school presentation and this costume was perfect. The price was great, I couldn't have bought fabric for the price I paid and I saved all that time sewing. The fit seemed just as described, my daughter is 50 inches and the hem reaches just below her ankles. With her boots it will fit perfect. She is small, only about 50 lbs, so there is room for her school clothes under the costume. Great purchase, quick shipping and the product seems well made for this type of costume. All in all I would recommend it."
