Girl's Long Sleeve Gathered Jersey Dress
Love this dress!
Just received this dress and my soon to be 8 year old daughter couldn't wait to put it on! It is a good quality dress that is modest and looks like it will be very comfortable. It is bigger than I thought, I bought the Rich Red Dots in a size 10, the sleeves are very long, which we have to fold up, and it is quite long, calf length. My daughter is quite tall for her age and is wearing a size 10 in most things, but they are normally big on her. She really needs a size 9, but who makes that size. The cotton is a nice weight, which will not be too hot for her, but warm enough for cooler temps. The striped leggings were on back order, so we didn't get them yet. I know we will get two years out of this dress. I would definitely recommend this if you want something comfortable that covers your child, and can be worn to play in or out to dinner or church. She also could wear it to bed as a nightgown, as I feel it is that comfy! She has it on now with the purple leggings, even though there is no purple in the dress you could wear leggings with it and it looks very cute!

Best dress in years
I used to make all my daughter's clothes.. Now that I'm a grandmother I ordered this dress because it was basically the same pattern as many of the clothes I used to make for my daugher, but better because it's a knit fabric that NEEDS NO IRONING. . It will keep my granddaughter warm this winter because it's big enough for her to wear another layer of clothing underneath, or it can be cooler if she just wears regular undergarments. I'm so happy LE is carrying TODDLER SIZES! Please please add another pattern/fabric, so I can order another one! While Skyping with my daughter I showed it to her, and she also viewed it on the LE web page. We can't wait for my little granddaughter to wear it ... Will add a followup in a couple of weeks

I have washed this dress several times and it still looks just like new. My daughter is a plus size and the dress fits great and is comfortable and flattering.

This dress was a hit right out of the box. My daughter was comfortable but twirly in it. It works for school or dress-up and will work for more than one season. More patterns please!

Need more colors!
My daughters both love this dress (we got them in red) and have loved this style for years! We are happy the LE finally brought back the original (my kids don't care for the drop waist or the A-line), but we need more variety! Please add more colors or patterns. They don't care for the blue, but something plain and simple would be nice. Conservative, please... and PLEASE make sure to carry these in short sleeve come Spring/Summer!

Easy dressing, comfortable and cute for school or play!
I have long been a fan of these dresses for my daughters. I've bought them for years in a variety of sizes for each of my daughters from baby - preteen. They never change, they are perfect for casual days at school or home, and can be dressed up for church or dinner out. With that kind of versatility, its hard to go wrong! Thank you Land's End for providing parents with effortless style with affordable price!

Love the dress, but sizing is not consistant.
I love this style dress, and thought both the red and the blue dresses were very pretty. Instead of choosing which one to buy, I decided to get both colors. To my surprise, the blue dress was cut significantly wider than the red dress even though they were the exact same size.. Just a warning that if you order both, they will fit differently.

LOVE THESE DRESSES!
Thank you so much for bringing back these dresses! I started buying these dresses for my oldest daughter back in 1998. Back then, you offered this style in infant sizes! I now have 3 daughters and we just keep passing these dresses down, as well as purchasing new ones. My youngest two girls now wear these dresses every, single day! They are a perfect fit for the thinner girl as well as the more solidly built girl! I often have 10 or more of these hanging to dry in my laundry room! Please, please, bring back more patterns and in the larger sizes, as well. We LOVE the below the knee length! Thank you for bringing this style back!

My daughters are thrilled this dress is back. They only want to wear this dress. PLEASE make more fabrics for this dress! The fit is great, they wash well, they are comfortable. We just need more variety.

I love that you brought back the LE dress. It has been missed in our house! The style is comfortable enough to play in, washes/dries well, and dresses up nicely. Truly, the perfect dress for girls who just can't decide if they are girly or a tom-boy. :)
My only complaint it that there needs to be more colors and patterns to choose from! And can I also suggest some choices with thicker material? I can assure you that this mom would be buying multiple colors with matching leggings, flared yoga pants, and fleece pants.
