This dress is beautiful for several reasons. It's 100% cotton, so it has an old-fashioned soft thick feel that the cotton-poly Feltman Brothers dresses didn't have. My mother-in-law also said that the 100% cotton would stay whiter than the cotton-poly as it ages if I store it for several years. It's a fairly long dress, and the fabric is thick (but not hot since it's cotton), so it has an expensive feel. It has adorable faux-pearl buttons at the back which look so much richer than the plain white buttons of the Feltman Bros dresses.
But the main reason we kept this dress was the fit. It's hard to have a dress that fits a newborn size 0-3 months and everything in between, and this dress did it best. It has elastic around the arm openings which make it fit nice and snug (but not tight). And the bodice is gathered with a bit of stretch where the smocking is, so it fits well there too. And it has a beautiful thick long fabric tie for the back that gathers in any extra at the waist so that it fits well there too.
The brand of this dress (Swea' Pea and Lilli) makes several of the top Amazon christening dresses, and they are all very nice. They all have a nice weight to them and lots of the beautiful details this one has. I chose this one because it had simple old-fashioned features (plain cotton instead of modern-looking embroidery, simple smocking instead of shiny lace details, etc), but the other dresses in this line are also beautiful. If you're looking for something trendy or modern or fancy or like your baby is going to prom, this is definitely not the dress for you. My older boys asked why their sister is wearing a pioneer dress :). If another Swea' Pea and Lilli dress suits your style better, it will also be made beautifully like this one is.
I fully expected to love the Feltman Bros dresses the best, since they are so much more expensive at a hundred each. But this dress I honestly felt was nicer quality, had more special details, fit better, and was 100% cotton. I was surprised I liked it so much, since it looked somewhat plain and boring in the picture. It's a beautiful dress, don't let the price or the picture fool you.
Lastly, don't disregard the bonnet! It's so incredibly adorable! It made the outfit, and we chose to use it instead of the white elastic head bow I planned on using. How many times in your daughter's life is she going to have a chance to wear a bonnet?! It makes it extra special, and looks so wonderfully old-fashioned :). Just snip the ribbon apart at the bottom so you can tie it properly under her chin.
Enjoy your beautiful baby and her special day!
