Rated 3 out of 5 by VickiP7 Flawed Stitching poor quality
Love the style of this pinafore and my daughter says she loves how comfortable it is. Unfortunately I had to return one after only a few days of wear as the top was becoming unstitched from the skirt section. I replaced it with another the same style hoping it was a one off problem however the replacement dress is experiencing the same poor stitching and is also coming away- meaning another trip back to store. Disappointed and wouldnt recommend.

Rated 3 out of 5 by cartw1974 Very short for a school pinafore
I bought the 7-8 for my tall 5 year old and it was above her knee. Going to swap it for the 8-9 as she loves the style of it and that it is so soft.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Yetmorewashing Very short dress!
Like a previous reviewer I have a tall(ish) slim 7 year old and ordered this in a 7-8. It didn't look much different in length to last year's 6-7 pinafores but she liked it so I kept it. It's a lovely soft fabric and comfortable to wear, but is already looking too short. I think it might have even shrunk slightly in the wash. I would definitely recommend sizing up.

Rated 3 out of 5 by CurlyGirly Terrible sizing
I have a slim but slightly-taller-than-average 7 year old. Age 6-7 in M&S seems to fit well at the moment, we still have 5-6 long length skirts to start the school year with.
I thought these softer bib pinafores would make a nice change to the more structured ones but as I was unsure of sizes I bought 6-7 and 7-8 (and the same in the more structured ones).
The material is lovely and soft, and it's a nice style, more feminine than the other bib pinafore. It does seem to be a slim fit, which would have been perfect, if it weren't for the short length! There is virtually no difference between the two sizes and the 7-8 finishes a good 2 inches above the knee, so unlikely to fit beyond the first term. I'm not sure if this was a one off, it's so small as to feel mislabelled, but as it's an online only item, I can't easily change for another or a larger size. In contrast, the 7-8 in the other bib style pinafore finishes on the knee, so it's quite a lot shorter.
