Athena might the sort of girl who loves scurrying about in the woods, waving sticks about, looking under logs for insects and making dens but given the choice she’d much rather do all that in a dress! So where better to head in a very pretty dress that she picked from the selection at David Charles Children’s Wear [sent for review] than our local woods!
It took Athena more than a little while to choose a dress from the Spring/Summer collection on the website as there are just so many stunning styles to choose from! Eventually she’d narrowed it down to two and did ‘eeny meeny miny mo’ to choose and picked an Ivory and Pink Teadress and we both love it!
It’s a gorgeous lace material with pink floral accents dotted all over. The lace is quite chunky, almost doily-like and the skirt is circular with a scalloped hem which flows beautifully when twirling and swirling! The dress is fully lined and has a concealed zip in the centre of the bodice at the back. Cute little capped sleeves finish it off perfectly!
The quality is brilliant, with all the hems finished properly and securely, and the lace and pattern on the bodice is perfectly aligned to show it at its best. Athena has already decided to wear it to wherever we go for her birthday and to some upcoming friends parties too!
Athena is just going into age 7-8 sized clothes (even though she’s not 6 yet!) so I picked age 8 for her after checking the height chart, and it fits really well with room to grow without looking baggy or too long. I probably won’t be letting her rush around in the woods again in it but miraculously she didn’t fall over it get it grubby and I love the bluebell photos we got too!
David Charles Children’s Wear have such a varied range, from age two to sixteen, long to short, and all manner of styles, colours, materials and occasions!
