"The material is of a flannel that is extremly thin thus fuzzing and pilling would be next. It is so thin that it clings. The collar is a padded collar and does not lie smoothly but wrinkles badly. The most disappointing part is the hat. The hat is made of the hardest material imaginable, terribly uncomfortable and as it is so non forgiving any breeze would set it sailing. The pattern of the outfit is great I just cannot imagine not being able to do it in materials wearable. DO KNOW the last outfit I purchased was Dorothy of Wizard of Oz and it was great. In any event they are far, far superior to the local Walmart, etc. costumes."
