Our 5 year old daughter usually takes a size 5/6 and this size 6 dress by Stun was a perfect fit. Both the waste and the hem hit right where they should. Due to the knee-length and the cut of this lined dress, we did not have a problem with her skirt blowing up even though the wind was pretty strong that day. Our daughter has decided that this dress is ideal for curtsying and twirling.

As a parent, I love this cotton dress because it is lined, 100% cotton, and is machine washable (hang to dry). Even though we did not have a problem with the wind catching the skirt of the dress, our daughter is quite active, as most 5 year old children are. Just to be on the safe side, Small Concept suggested a pair of Monkeybar Buddies Shorts for her to wear under the dress . . .
. . . and am I ever glad they did. Although our daughter did not go to the playground that day, she was a little overzealous with her curtsying at times. Thank goodness she wore the Monkeybar Buddies, which turned out to be so comfortable that she forgot she was wearing them. These shorts are made of nylon/spandex, can be both machine washed and dried, and are available in several color choices.
The Purple Rose Flutter Dress retails for $68. The same print is also available in a tunic and legging set. Small Concept carries many of my favorite children's apparel brands for girls and boys, such as Tea Collection and Appaman. I am so happy to have discovered Stun apparel on SmallConcept.com. The brand offers such charming, but comfortably designed clothing for girls. Here are a few more styles from the Stun Spring/Summer Collection for 2012 . . .
