Review: When this dress first arrived, I was immediately struck by the amazing quality of both the organic cotton fabric and the structure & finish of the dress itself. The cotton is wonderful to touch and this dress is lovely against the skin, something that I have to keep in mind more than previously, now that Georgie is no longer wearing vests underneath all her clothes!
Rocket Muffin work only with organic fabrics and the designs are all fresh, created with the input of final year design students at Birmingham City University. I love that they are helping students get started in the design world whilst creating beautiful pieces of clothing.
The pattern on the dress is lovely; a simple & fun cartoon of wildflowers repeated over the cream background. It fastens with a hidden “invisible zip” on the side, which allows the back of the dress to look as nice as the front does.
Georgie is only just two years old, so is right at the bottom end of the age range for this 2-3 size dress. Being quite thin and tall for her age makes buying clothes for her a bit tricky, especially when it comes to dresses. Happily, this dress hung on her beautifully and didn’t give the impression that I dress my child in shapeless sacks, as some dresses tend to do.
The only sign that she is still a little small for it is that the neckline is a little big for her at the moment; however this will look better as time goes on and she grows into it more. There is loads of growing room in it and the dress is bound to last her through this summer and next summer too.
The ruffles on this dress give it a lovely movement and almost manage to make my toddler seem graceful as she scrambles around. I just love the way they swing and flow while she runs and plays, which gives the dress a real sense of fun.
At £27.00 this would definitely be a special occasion purchase for us, although you certainly get what you pay for as it is a wonderfully made dress with the gorgeous organic cotton fabric. The price is very comparable with other organic cotton brands.
The Wildflower Ruffle Dress is perfect for summer parties and special days out, and we give it 5 stars.
