|See, modelling can be fun!|
So we took a look at the new Spring dresses by Joules and were pleased to see short sleeved jersey dresses in the mix. We chose the Lara dresses in a blue stripe and multi colour stripe. I knew even before they arrived that they'd be great quality, and they were - I think you can tell that from this close up:
The dresses are 100% cotton, and a lovely heavy weight which means they hang well, and will also wash and wear well. You may have spotted that there is indeed a pretty petal embellishment, but these are stitched in very carefully with soft thread and don't cause any itching on the inside, so they're a winner in our book. They have capped sleeves and a cute little hare embroidered at the bottom of the skirt (it's chest areas which are mostly a problem as they touch the skin).
Sizing is always tricky online, I find, but most places these days will exchange without much fuss. My girls are aged 10 and 8, but both are tall and Sasha has been wearing clothing for ages two sizes above her for some time. So we chose age 9-10, wondering if they might be too small, but found them to be a pretty good fit - maybe even slightly on the large size, which means they will last longer, hooray!
Tamsin isn't really a fan of dresses any more; she also frequently struggles with clothes not feeling 'right' and prefers to live in T-shirts and leggings now. I do miss the girlie days when they both used to wear a nice frock (any excuse to include an old photo):
Both girls loved their Joules dresses and I know I'll be checking the site again myself in the future for any more new releases.
You do know that I can never take just one photo though, right? So here's a handful more which hopefully show just how much fun we had today....
