Royal Ballet Cotton Rich Embroidered Floral Mesh Ballet Dress
Very good quality
The quality on this dress is very good, embroidery fantastic. Really stands out from all the ballerina skirts our girl has. Our daughter is quite tall for just under a three year old, so got her a 4-5 size so she will fit into it for a while.

Pretty ballet dress
I bought this for a 5yr old who loves her ballet class, partly because of the Royal Ballet logo & pretty gold embroidery round the hem, but mainly because the leotard fabric is 99% cotton. On delivery, it seemed small for a 5yr old. The shoulder straps were short and lifted the leotard high on the chest - so the length from centre front to under the crutch may have been tight when exercising? The 2 metal popper fastenings under the crutch seemed clumsy & old fashioned -would have preferred smaller plastic poppers like on duvet covers. The workmanship is good, there are several layers of gathered underskirts which make the skirt stand out well. The leotard is made of soft cotton, and the tutu mesh fabric isn't cheap or scratchy like some on sale. I'm sure it will wash and dry on a hanger quite quickly.
But I was afraid the dress might have felt uncomfortable when she raised her arms, so I bought the next size up.
