If there is one staple that my girls use every season, every year in a bit different style but never the less pretty much all the time it is a cotton jersey dress from Petit Bateau. For spring and summer season it´s a lighter model with short sleeves and for winter it´s a thicker dress and possibly with long sleeves. It´s such an easy everyday outfit! We wear them for daycare just with a sleeveless undershirt and tights. It´s comfortable, it´s pretty and it´s so easy to maintain. Wash and dry. Besides in my opinion Petit Bateau looks great even after a lot of washing and the darkest navy still looks dark navy after a year of using it. And the girls never complain when I pull out one of their dresses as they really are that soft to wear but nice to twirl in a little. Petit Bateau has come up with plenty of classic but lovely dresses for this summer too. Nothing very new but with a classic who needs anything new. Even the short sleeved models go well year round in pre-school or school with a cardigan. I highly recommend these!
These come a bit small in size as they are French so you may want to go up a size or two depending on your child´s measurements. Cotton Candy wears true to size but she is small for her age and Bubble Gum wears a size up ( she is an average size in Finnsh charts). Petit Bateau is tall and narrow in most designs rather than short and wide. For my girl´s body type it´s a great thing but you know your own child best.
