Girls' Short Sleeve Gathered Jersey Dress
Not what they used to be...
I have bought these LE jersey dresses for my girls for years (about 5 years now). Early on, the patterns were adorable and the jersey material itself was substantial - it could be passed on and on to other little girls in the family. The one I bought several weeks ago in short sleeve has a cute pattern (but it was the only cute one IMO), however, the material is very, very thin. It's great to have thin material here in GA, but this dress will not be able to be passed on - at least not at the rate my daughters wear out their clothes. I love LE, but have switched to LL Bean for the time being for little girl dresses. Both are expensive, and if I'm paying that much for a dress then I want more than just one of my daughters to be able to wear it!

Gathered short sleeve cotton Jersey Dress
I have to say the quality and the styling are just great! It's a dress that is easy for my Toddler granddaughter to wear and she looks absolutely DARLING in them.. I actually got all 4 of these patterns in this dress after buying the long sleeved one for cooler wearther last Fall... I AGREE WITH SOME OTHER POSTERS though about BRING BACK CLASSIC COLORS and maybe some pastels for summer.. Otherwise don't change a thing.. WE LOVE THE POCKETS TOO! :) This is a great dress, and the best thing is that it is long enough to be modest and not have to wear leggings.. However as we go into fall she can wear them, if her Mother wants, and also put a sweater with the dresses and wear them into November (in her warm location, in another country) Worn with hard shoes for playwear and now with pink Crocks for a colorful look.. Hope to order these for a long time.
Thanks, please keep this dress coming.. It's not trendy, rather it is basic and comfortable.

More Prints/Colors please
These are great dresses, the 2 my 10 year old has been wearing for a couple of years are quite worn out. I'm glad to see the style still here but, like some other reviewers, would love to see some more color and print options!!!

I bought this dress for my special needs daughter that is in a wheelchair. The dress is loose enough and long enough that makes it very comfortable for her while sitting in her chair for extended periods. Will definitely be buying one in every color!

Old tried and true...
My daughter wore these dresses every year for about the past 5 years. I thought the style still looks cute this year. She didn't like the seam around the chest area so we had to return it. But it has been a great dress until this year. i think she is just getting too old for the style.

Great casual dress
I've ordered this style dress every year since I can remember for my 3 daughters . Washes great - throw it in the dryer and it's ready to go . Looks adorable with sandals or ballet flats . This is a loose fitting dress and very flattering on those girls who are not super thin . We need more color selection though in the big girls sizes.

Perfect little girl dress!!! Soft, durable knit. Dresses up for church or down for play. Increase season of use with coordinating ankle leggings and Sophia sweater. My daughter is 50th percentile for weight and 75th percentile for height. At 2 1/2 years the 3T is a beautiful fit, not huge but enough room for growth. I bought one in every color!

LE: Please add better colors and coordinated bike shorts
We own many of these dresses and they are great (size 2T-8) but the color selection has been poor the last couple of years. LE: Please bring back the more classic colors. We had great solid color ones in royal blue and light pink with a rickrack border and flower appliqué or small sweet prints in red, blue, purple, pink, green. The two currently available my daughters will not wear. Thanks.

pretty print; lovely material; too large
While I really loved this dress when it arrived, it was huge compared to the other little girls dresses I've gotten from Lands End. I washed and dried it and it is still too large for our 5 year old granddaughter. I had to order her another dress in the smaller size and save this one for next spring. If you are ordering, get it in one size smaller.
