"This dress is SO adorable, and my toddler dearly LOVES it. Once she saw it she cared nothing about any other Christmas gift! It's big, fluffy, and her favorite shade of pink. I am very upset, however, because the side seams ripped out after the FIRST day. (My daughter is dainty and gentle, so this is ridiculous!) The material on the sides of the bodice is completely shredded and I can't even sew it because it continues to shred. Since she loves it so very much, I'm going to take it to my seamstress and see if (for a huge fee, I'm sure) she can salvage the skirt, at least, and put on on a new bodice. Grrrr, I am so frustrated!"
"My daughter wore this dress twice - once for Halloween and once for her birthday - a grand total of 6 hours. By the end of her party it was falling apart EVERYWHERE! I think the skirt can be salvaged, but the bodice is unable to be fixed. I'm off to the fabric store to try and make a new bodice to try and salvage this dress. So disappointing."
"Last year I purchased this for my older daughter and it fell apart. It was mended several times and after Halloween we had to throw it out. You think with the price you would be able to get a little more use out of it. Wish I had tried to get a refund last year on this."
"It's a beautiful dress. Honestly, I was more pleased with it once I got it than I was with the pictures provided from the website. **I marked the item true to size** But it is probably just a tiny bit to the larger size. My daughter is 3 (going on 4) and wears a 4T-5T and this dress is too big for her. I thought it would be okay because last years costume was a 4x/6 and it fit perfectly. So I guess last years ran small. Not going to bother returning it because she LOVES the dress, and should be able to wear it next year halloween! VERY happy with my purchase and fast shipping!"
"This was perfect for my daughter for Halloween. She loved it. the dress is beautiful and will make any little girl feel like a princess. we were very watchful of the fabric because the sleeve are very thin and can tear if not careful. we loved it."
"My daughter loved the dress but when we opened it on halloween the top part of the dress was ripped down the whole side of the top. I was very unhappy about it but still let her wear it with no other options."
"This costume did not even make it to Halloween. Have already tried to mend it two times. Do not buy this costume....even if your 4 year old insists.....extremely disappointed and now left to find another costume for HAlloween"
"This is a very beautiful dress, but I am sorry to say the dress I ordered was unwearable. When we opened the box the strap was broken. Then I started noticing the stitching at the seams was coming apart. I boxed it back up to send back. My daughter never even put it on."
"When I saw this costume I thought it was adorable. When it came in the mail I was extremely disappointed. The dress came folded in packaging, when I took the dress out and unfolded it, the gold design was stuck and started peeling off. We got the Cinderella dress made by the same company last year and was extremely pleased, however the Sleeping BEauty one is make really cheap."
"I purchased this sleeping beauty costume along with a Cinderella costume for my 4 year old girls. The Cinderella is fantastic (fits well, very sturdy and well put together).
The Sleeping Beauty one is a little on the cheap side. The fabric on the sleeves feels like it will rip if you're not careful. It also doesn't fit well. I am going to have to do some major alteration work to get it to fit as nicely as the Cinderella costume."
"We bought this dress for our daughter last year. It was a dual birthday gift/Halloween costume. It is very cute and she loved it...BUT...this dress is WAY too bottom heavy and she had trouble holding it up. Immediately I had to reinforce the shoulder straps and the bodice ripped and I had to sew it back together (and the dress was pretty true to size) Also the sheer chiffon material on the arms ripped under the arms - just too thin and poorly constructed. It would have been a different story had I bought her a dress that was too small in size, but this was the proper size - just a poor-quality product that she can't even wear now because it's just too hard to sew back together. Very disappointing for the price. Not worth it at all. AND this is the official Disney licensed product, which makes it even more disappointing. We bought her a Snow White equivalent this summer at Disney and the quality is better hands-down - no ripping, etc. I think the dress is just too heavy, so there is too much pressure pulling down on the top portion of the dress to hold it up. My best advice, choose a different one."
"I told my daughter up front we wouldn't buy any Disney dresses from Costume Express this year because we bought the pink one last year and it barely made it to Halloween before it fell apart at the seams. The side seams were especially fragile and I tried to mend it on my sewing machine but it simply fell apart again. The skirt was fine but the bodice was a horrific mess to keep together. After Halloween night even the sleeves were coming off. I don't recommend this dress to anyone. It is heartbreaking for a little girl to watch you throw out her pretty pink princess dress."
"Gorgeous costume but poor quality on all of the seams. My daughter loved the costume but by the end of the night, the front had come nearly completely undone. I am taking it to a seamstress to try to salvage it. Not a good buy for the price."
"i received this dress & saw that the dress has two torns on the neckline, i couldn't return the dress 'cuz i only had two days left for Holloween. i'm not gonna buy the dress like this again. low quality product! not the worth the price!"
"I was not impressed with the way this dress was made. It was very stringy on the bottom and was tearing at the sleeves after one use, and my daughter is NOT rough with her clothes!! For the price I paid, I would've expected it to last. I wish I just got a costume at Wal-Mart!!"
"This was an adorable costume in the cataloge and on my daughter. Unfortunately she tried it on before Haloween and had it on only one time and it came apart at the seams. The sides ripped open and the collar came detached from the dress. I am able to sew and was able to stitch it up for Haloween but was very disapointed in the price of the dress for the fact that it was made very poorly!!!"
"This dress is adorable and looked so cute on my daughter, however it is made very poorly. Both sleeves ripped from the main part of the dress the first time we tried it on her. The sleeves are a very thin mess material and are barely stitched to the satin dress and collar. Also, the gold material in the rest of the dress keeps fraying off. It's a shame because it really is cute."
"My daughter wore this dress for less than 2 hours for a school parade and it was ripping at the seams. For halloween I have to use safety pins to keep the sides together where they ripped. NOT WORTH THE MONEY."
