So what I have found recently with clothes buying is that Euna is coming out of her babyhood. She is in her clothes for much longer, so spending a little more on longer standing items is becoming more and more worthwhile. I'm a firm believer in buying less but buying right. I love some of the supermarket brands and I am quite partial to a Primark haul but you can end up spending more if a lot of it doesn't wash tremendously well, or the buttons go, or the designs are a little bland, so you get bored and buy more... Gone are the days of "panic dressing" to get her through the piles of beautiful baby gifts and all the wonderful things we stock piled in pregnancy. Now we can wear clothes out. So when possible I think we should be buying to last.
Cue this delicious iconic, floral print, jersey, A line dress from Joules. The Baby Lizzie dress.
First off, the aesthetics, I love the print. A classic pink floral on a little girl? Everytime. What's more is the pink is a fuschia pink and the cuffs are an almost luminous turquoise. So what we have a classic floral print with a funky, bold twist. Fabulous!
I got a size 12-18 months. Sizings seem accurate. This is roomy on Euna so lots of growing room for when the weather cools off in Autumn when she'll get a little more wear out of it and then into winter when I'll team it with wooly tights and maybe welly boots (if her feet grow enough for ickle wellies which I am dying to buy!) FYI Euna is now 16 months, she floats around the 25th percentile and is about 22lbs. She's proportional in her height too and the length is great. It is just on her knee so not short at all and not so long I see her trip at all.
The first wear was yesterday and the 100% cotton stood up to a fairly intensive 40 degree cotton wash (I had some gnarly beach towels to go in hence the intensive cycle). The pattern stayed perfectly and the fabric didn't "bobble" in the slightest.
- Bold, iconic, print design
- Quality fabric and make, that washes well
- Comfortable and very wearable
- £24.95 with a lot of scope to get your money's worth
