Age Range: sizes range from 2 years to 13 years
Manufacturer’s Description: Our Sleeping Beauty costume dress dazzles with details that everyone will love. Made from eye-catching glittery fabric, it features satin shoulder straps, and an Aurora motif at the neckline.
Our whole family are Disney fans – even James – in fact, our first dance at our wedding (pre kids!) was a Disney song. I love watching Disney films – and a good thing too, because the girls adore them as much as I did when I was growing up!
When Disney offered us a dress for World Book Day, I jumped at the chance. Both Georgie & Lydia love to dress up, and the Disney versions of the so many amazing fairytale characters that they have brought to life through animation have some wonderful gowns. Disney are offering 25% off selected costumes at the moment, and we chose to try out a beautiful pink Sleeping Beauty dress.
I think Lydia looks adorable in this dress. Pink is her favourite colour, and she really loves the way it sparkles. Her big beaming smile in these photos says it all, really – she looks and feels beautiful in her pretty dress! The bodice is beautiful with glittering fabric, roses, and an Sleeping Beauty motif at the neckline.
The dress has several layers and none of the fabrics are scratchy, which is a problem we’ve had with supermarket brand princess dresses in the past. The whole thing feels really well made and fits Lydia really nicely, but still with a bit of room so it will last a while. She just turned three on Saturday and this is a size 3 dress.
It’s reduced down from £30.95 to £23.21 right now which I think is a fairly reasonable price for such a good quality dress. It comes on a lovely padded hanger too, which is a nice touch & keeps the satin shoulder straps from being damaged on a plastic hanger.
Lydia put on the dress and immediately lay down and pretended she was napping, telling me with her eyes screwed up shut “I’m sleeping now, because she sleeps for a WHOLE NIGHT and it’s a very long night and then she wakes up” and then she let out half a dozen of the cutest fake snores I’ve ever heard, and bounced off to have a little dance in her new dress!
This gorgeous dress gets 5 stars from my little princess
