Now, to be fair, we haven't worn the dress for play yet. We are saving it for Halloween, but I have high hopes that it will be perfect for my kindergartner to wear to school and out trick or treating. Do look and check to make sure you are getting it from an authentic seller, There were ones listed for less but shipped from China with no reviews of the seller at all, so I made sure that I got mine through the amazon prime option. The fabric is soft, and has a high quality feel to it (not scratchy) there is a zipper on the side even. It seems well made for a costume. Maybe not quite as nice as disney quality, but I wouldn't say it is far off from the mark. I'll update after halloween if it falls apart with actual wear.
