Girls' Long Sleeve Knit A-Line Dress
This dress is worth every penny
I've been buying this dress for two years, for gifts. It really fits well and it's forgiving in cut. It does run on the generous side, but that is what makes it such a great dress. The neckline is not too low or wide, the waist is loose and higher cut, which is nice for a variety of little girls, from thin to chubby. I love the twirl and it washes very well. No shrinkage and doesn't wear out. It's the perfect hand me down dress. My only issue is that sometimes the prints are printed on top of the dress and the fabric is therefore a bit stiff. However, they wash up well and soften at once. Adore, adore, adore. Practicality+cute.

love the print, thinner material than expected
I bought this for my niece for Christmas. Loved the print last year and finally bought it this year. adorable. but fabric is thinner than I thought it would be. I've bought these in the past and the dresses seemed to be thicker material then.

Great dress, runs a touch small for those with long limbs
I really like this dress for every day play for my 2 1/2 year old daughter. I was introduced to these dresses via two that I purchased from a garage sale this past Spring. I am not sure how old the garage sale dresses are but they were in excellent condition when I purchased them. Based on their condition and ease of wear for my little girl, I decided to go ahead and purchase two brand new from Land's End this Fall. My daughter is average in her general size though her arms are long. People tell me she's tall but honestly, she looks average height to me. I decided to purchase the 3T size thinking she would be able to wear them now and into the Fall of 2014 as well. As it turns out, the sleeves are the perfect length for her right now. I do think this corresponds to my daughter's size since she has long arms. The dress length is fine, however. The garage sale dresses I purchased are a size 2T, so one size smaller, and the sleeves are short on my daughter. I suspect that this will be the case for the 3T a year from now. I would still recommend the dress, however. The material is of good quality and the style is timeless. I love the pockets as well. If your child is on the small to average size, I would recommend buying the size that corresponds with their ages. However, if, like my kids, they have longer limbs, I would recommend going up a size. All in all, I am very pleased with my purchase and do not regret going up a size. Even if the sleeves are too short for my daughter next year I think the dresses will still fit her well enough in the body that she'll be able to wear them. One other thing I really like about this dress is that the material is light weight enough for the warmer days of early spring and mid fall but can be easily worn in winter with an undershirt and warm tights. I expect to get quite a bit of use out of these dresses.

Perfect fit and so cute
I bought this for my six-year-old daughter. She loves it and so do I. It is so hard to find beautiful but comfortable dresses that I feel are appropriate for young girls. These dresses are perfect!

Perfect for plus size!
This is the perfect cut for my plus size girl. Some have complained that the material is not thick enough, but it is a great weight for her (she gets hot easily). She loves this dress! We bought it in 3 patterns!

Lots of compliments
My daughter always gets loads of compliments when she wears her LE dresses.. this one is a lovely and comfortable fit with lots of great colours and patterns.

Finally, a perfect dress for slim girls!
This dress is wonderful! I really have no idea why others have given it bad reviews. If your daughter is slender, this is a wonderful dress. As a mom of three very slim kids, I am so tired of all kids' clothes being geared to fit husky or plus sized children. That's what the husky sizes are for! It's nice to be able to have a pretty dress that my daughter is not swimming in. I say, don't change a thing--you got this one right, Land's End! Love it!

I bought 2 of these dresses as well as 2 of the sequin dresses that have the same a-line for my oldest daughter who still loves girly dresses even at 11 yrs. Unfortunately, all 4 dresses are going to have to be returned. This cut is too tight in the stomach area for my daughter. At the same time I bought these 4 dresses, I also bought another style dress and 5 pairs of leggings in the same size as I bought these dresses and they all fit her fine. I'll admit my daughter is a hard to fit plus-size 16 girl. But, that is why I buy online from Land's End...no one carries the girly, yet modest styles in her size. I'm truly disappointed in the sizing of these dresses.

No shape to this dress
I was very disappointed in this dress. It did not have any shape to it, looked like a sack with sleeves. Even my 10 year old said that the dress looked sad. I have bought many dresses from LE and this is the first one I ever returned.
