Rated 4 out of 5 by ActiveCanadianMomof3 Big size jump from 5-6 to 6X-7
My daughter and I are both fans of these dresses and the summer and winter versions have always been favourites in seasons past. Just received the 6x-7 and I think they may have to go back?.she is growing and at the limit of last years 5-6 but there is no way that the 6X-7 is wearable this fall?.it would just be sloppy, needing to roll up the sleeves 2 or 3 times. And the matching tights also seem much bigger than the 5-6. Sad that there is no in-between?like a 6-6X.

Rated 5 out of 5 by daffodil Great dresses!
I have been buying these dresses for my granddaughter for several years now, and she loves to wear them. Great style, wonderful patterns and colors, unfussy. Sadly, she's now at size 10 -- the end of the line. Wish they came in larger sizes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by travellllller Hem at the bottom will not lay flat
I bought the Pink Waterlily Deer design and it is very cute. I like the colors- and so far it has washed up with no pilling (unlike some summer dresses that I bought off of here.) The thing that is annoying is that the hem at the bottom will not fall flat- it wants to flip up- so when you look at the dress you see the inside of the hem- which detracts from the look of the dress. My daughter doesn't mind wearing the dress because it is soft. I find that the dress is true to size and I like that the dress is long. I will only buy another one of these dresses if they are discounted because of the issue with the hem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by llbeanershopaholic True quality!
My daughter has SIX of these dresses. They are well used by her-she loves dresses. They wash and dry very well, throw on tights and you're ready for church, or leggings, and you have a playdress to be worn all day. Versatile, comfy, and as other reviewers mentioned, generous in size which equals classy fit.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Haro Not as good as I expecited for LLBean clothes.
A little bigger than the same size clothes sold at other stores. My daughter is a little larger size than average, so that worked for her and me. However, there are several points that I did not like about this dress (I actually bought 2). The bottom hem was skimped on the fabric and hemmed only about 1 inch. Thus, once washed and dried in the dryer, the hem was wrinkled outside and does not look good.
Also the sleeve length is too long for Asian. I have to fold twice so that I can see her hands.
Another thing that I was not very thrilled was fabric. It is a good old cotton, in other words, old style heavy thick cotton. It is ok but boring, I must say. There are lots of improved quality materials out there, so I wish kids cotton dresses can incorporate such materials as well.
Other than that, this dress is decent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by oldgreymare Good quality
I purchase a dress for my granddaughter on her birthday and at Christmas time. I find they are of excellent quality and my granddaughter loves them. The dresses are comfortable and launder well. Her birthday is in a few weeks and we will be checking out the catalog and picking out her birthday dress.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Collierville My girls love these!
I order one or more of these dresses for my three girls every year. The quality is consistently good, and my girls love to wear them! The dresses are pretty true to size, though they have a generous fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MadisonKKMom Comfort and Quality
We originally bought a "typical"" Christmas dress. Thank goodness it did not fit forcing us to look for an alternative. I looked to LL Bean and found the perfect solution. The soft pink snowflake dress with little reindeer along the bottom hem. This dress is adorable, comfortable and washes up like a dream. Best of all my six year old loves this dress and wanted to sleep in it on Christmas night. She has never said that about a typical holiday dress. Not once did I hear, "this itches" or "when do I get to take this off"? This dress was an answer to a prayer. We recommend the unshrinkable knit dress and will buy again! Thanks LL Bean for the perfect dress.

Rated 5 out of 5 by mountain4girls perfect!
Great quality! Fits perfectly. For my 6 year old, I normally struggle to find the right size as she is not ready for 6x but 5/6 is normally too small. This 5/6 fit so well, and I am very happy.
