"This costume (and the matching hat) was purchased for my 8-year old daughter for Halloween and it looks very cute on her. We removed the plastic hoop from the lining inside, as she found it hard to sit down in it. In my opinion, it looks better now that it hangs flatter. Also, she did complain that the front was a bit itchy and that it was too low-cut, so I bought a small piece of black stretch velvet and sewed it inside and above the front panel, to raise the neckline and cover the "itchy part". Now , the dress is perfect. The velvet fabric is very nice and the decorative flowers are really pretty. After our minor modifications, this has been a terrific purchase."
"This costume was purchased for my 6-year-old daughter, who wanted to be a cat for Halloween, and she's very happy with it. The fabric is nice, and is stretchy, so it gives. The sizing is good as well. The elastic on the bow tie is way too long, so we cut it and tied it around my daughter's neck instead (although I think the costume generally looks better without it). Also, the tail is not sewn on so well, so it needs a little mending to make it secure. Overall, a very good purchase."
Title: Runs small and is a bit short, but OK overall

"This petticoat was purchased to be worn underneath the skirt of a costume. It's actually a bit too short to look good, as it puffs out in the back more than I'd like. The waist is also smaller than the sizing would indicate."
"This costume was purchased for my 4-year-old in the 3T-4T size. The fit is good, although the skirt is short enough that black tights are required, as shown in the picture. My daughter is generally sensitive to "itchy" fabrics and she has no complaints about this costume. My only complaint is the headband, which doesn't fit at all - it's too large for my daughter, and even too large for me. Overall, this costume was a good purchase."
