    Gorgeous dress - summer essential :-)
  • review score 4 MJ on 25 July 2015
    Lovely simple dress. The material is not that light but summers here are not that scorching so it goes well. The 2-3 size It's a bit too long for my 2 year old but I suspect she will be wearing it for the next summer too.
  • review score 5 Alex on 25 July 2015
    Great quality! Comfortable dress for my little girl.
  • review score 5 Tigger on 24 July 2015
    Looks lovely on good quality and great wearability. Good for both dressing up or casual days
  • review score 5 Jenny on 24 July 2015
    A lovely dress for the summer. My daughter always gets positive comments when she wears it.
  • review score 5 Vicky on 24 July 2015
    I purchased this dress 6 months ago and love it so much that I have bought another in the sale. It is so easy to put on and looks so good, despite having been washed many times! My daughter loves wearing it too and so it must be very comfortable. Now have 3 dresses in this style and could easily buy more as they are brilliant and excellent value for money!
  • review score 5 Joanne on 23 July 2015
    I bought this dress as a gift. It is really pretty , great quality and lovely colour. Perfect.
  • review score 5 Patricia Leigh on 16 July 2015
    Arrived promptly and fits really well. Looks so comfortable and allows our little girl to charge round easily.
  • review score 5 Claire on 14 July 2015
    Great quality, keeps shape once washed and pretty on. Only fault is I find it quite long on my little one
  • review score 5 mrs_scholes on 13 July 2015
    We've only had the dress for a little while but it seems like the usual good quality from Jojo. Lovely thick, heavy material (perhaps it would be a bit hot for the beach?) and has washed beautifully, retaining its shape.
  • review score 5 Gemma Wood on 19 June 2015
    Lovely soft comfy dress. great quairy and price. it even looks good without ironing! my daughter loves it.
  • review score 4 Laura on 09 June 2015
    Really nice quality fabric and very pretty dresses. There was a problem with the sizing (faulty batch apparently) but it was resolved well by customer service.
  • review score 5 Rachel Lovegrove on 29 May 2015
    This dress is gorgeous. Quality is lovely only thing worth nothing is that the sizing is generous, probably could have got my DD the size 18-24 instead of the 2-3.
  • review score 5 jean jackson on 26 May 2015
    Bought two for my young grand-daughters who were visiting from overseas. They absolutely loved the dresses which fitted perfectly and washed superbly
  • review score 5 Kim B on 18 May 2015
    Like all of the dresses, this is great quality. It does seem quite baggy on but has room to grow into.
  • review score 5 Kate on 01 May 2015
    My daughter lives in these dresses in the summer. They are beautifully made, so practical and pretty. And they wash and tumble dry really well. I'm only sad that this is the last size she'll fit!
  • review score 5 Jess on 25 April 2015
    Fantastic dress, this is the third time I have bought it, the quality is excellent and it washes really well.
  • review score 5 J D Stone on 08 April 2015
    I really love these dresses. I have bought them every year for my grandaughter. She is now to old for them so I buy them for gifts for others!!!
  • review score 5 Helen S on 01 April 2015
    This is the first 'summer' version of the essential dress and it is just as good as the long-sleeved winter version which my daughter loves. Super soft cotton jersey - really easy to wear and looks great.
  • review score 5 salli . mitchell on 06 February 2015
    We couldn't go through a summer without these dresses
  • review score 5 Sarah Aqel on 07 October 2014
    I bought this dress in July from the Reigate branch for £8.00! Great quality dress but go to the shop and save yourself £10.00.
  • review score 5 Emily on 23 July 2014
    Simply love these dresses. I initially bought my daughter one in blue but loved it so much I bought a pink one too! The dresses not only look great they wash well too!
  • review score 5 Catherine Glover on 08 July 2014
    I have bought three of these dresses for my grand-daughter and both her and her mummy love them. Perfect for summer days, just slip on, no fussy buttons and frills - beautifully simple and teamed with JoJo canvas shoes, they look lovely.
  • review score 5 Mumof2 on 06 July 2014
    I love jojomamanbebe dresses. My first daughter had two passed on to her, and now my second daughter wears them. Despite having been washed hundreds of times they are still in excellent condition. So I decided to buy a summer set and these do not disappoint. Same fabulous quality and easy to wear style. The age 2-3 fits my 2.5 year old perfectly.
  • review score 5 Mairi Lyon on 02 July 2014
    Love this wee dress, third summer of buying for my two girls, washes well and perfect to layer on cooler days
  • review score 5 Helen on 17 June 2014
    Lovely summer dress. Very comfortable and practical for a small girl who wants to be in a dress every day!
  • review score 5 LW on 16 June 2014
    Lovely quality, bought these matching dresses for my grand daughters aged 5yrs and 3months. So hard to find the quality, style and colour ways in the age ranges.
  • review score 5 Becca on 03 June 2014
    Lovely, casual summer dress. The cornflower is a beautiful colour. My daughter loves wearing it.
  • review score 5 Claire Westwood on 03 June 2014
    I brought two of these dresses in size 2-3 and they are lovely. Good quality fabric & good fit. My little one keeps asking to wear them which is also a bonus....no struggling to get her dressed!
  • review score 5 Sophie walton on 29 May 2014
    My eldest lived in these very summer. Am thrilled you now sell them in larger sizes, so my 5 year old and baby can wear matching outfits! Great quality dress, soft, comfy & washes well. A wardrobe must have.
  • review score 5 Catherine on 19 May 2014
    I bought this dress in two colours, it looks lovely on, very easy to wear, wash and iron! My little girl is just 2 and the 2-3 fits perfectly!
  • review score 5 Margaret Jackson on 16 May 2014
    Love this dress. I have bought one every year since my grand daughter was small! Don't know know what I will do next year as this is the biggest size. It washes well and is a lovely heavy cotton.
  • review score 5 Marian Robertson on 30 April 2014
    This is the third size in these dresses that I have bought for my Grand Daughter. She loves wearing them, they are so comfortable and she loves the little pocket. They wash very well and will be passed on down to her little sister, they look as good as new. I would have no hesitation in recommending them.
  • review score 5 S Howarth on 26 April 2014
    I love these dresses. We too order one or two every year. I'd also like to request to Jojo to have, not just these dresses, but all your clothes, above the 5 - 6 age. We live in France, and most baby / children's shops do clothes up to age 14. I know that I'd still like to use most of your clothes for a long time to come, but can't because we are now at the last size.
  • review score 0 Ann-Marie Russell on 23 April 2014
    Great quality and service as always from JoJo, love all the clothes and so does my Daughter.
  • review score 0 Charlotte on 15 April 2014
    Gorgeous and dependable - I buy these dresses every year and they are fantastic.
  • review score 0 Emily Napier on 15 April 2014
    These are amazing! We've bought it in 3 colours! Our 20 month old daughter loves them, and can climb/jump/slide to her hearts content without getting tangled up. Easy to get on or off, washes well.
  • review score 0 Donna on 01 April 2014
    Excellent quality, durable and extremely pretty. This is my second year in a row purchasing this dress, a summer staple!
  • review score 0 Kerry on 13 March 2014
    Just ordered another one of these for my daughter. Love these dresses, they are simple but look great. Bit confused about some of the criticism about sizing? My daughter is a very tall 4.5 year old and the 5-6 has plenty of room in it. It will still fit her next year. These dresses wash really well too. Can't wait for the warmer weather so she can wear her new dress :) Wish you did bigger sizes, she's in the biggest size now!
  • review score 0 salli on 13 March 2014
    A winner for the summer.

  • review score 0 A. Valls on 17 February 2014
    I absolutely love this dress and couldnt wait to get one for my little girl. The different colours and the design look very cute in girls. Also the service and the delivery were excellent as always
  • review score 0 Kerry Carlyon on 17 February 2014
    Love these dresses, they look great, the material feels lovely they are good quality, wash well and fit very well.
  • review score 0 Vicky on 06 February 2014
    This is the third summer we've had these. Great quality basics which wash well. However, I have found that the 3-4 size is just knee length on my 3.5 year old daughter (reasonably tall but not massively so). This leaves no growing room for the summer so am going to exchange for the next size.
  • review score 0 marina papaconstantinou on 24 January 2014
    This dress went to a consignment store after it was worn to 'death' by my granddaughter. It's durable, comfortable and so very attractive! I'm delighted that you are producing it in the 5-6 size.
  • review score 0 Penny Weeks on 25 September 2013
    The perfect dress for summer, bought two and will get more next year! Washes really well and super comfy.

  • review score 0 carole on 25 July 2013
    Pretty summer dress, very fresh looking and well made
  • review score 0 Ruth on 18 July 2013
    My four year old daughter attends a non uniform school but I like her to have school clothes that are still smart, hardwearing and easy to clean. These essential summer dresses have been perfect over the last couple of months - comfortable, cool and no ironing required!. The only issue I had is that the label said to wash on 40 degrees - the dress shrunk! Jo Jo Maman dealt with the issue straight away - I emailed them a picture of the dress that shrunk next to the one I had not yet washed and they sent me a replacement. So if you order this dress you must wash on 30 degrees. My only other suggestion is to Jo Jo Maman direct - could you extend your age range above 5 years old please?!
  • review score 0 Susan Duckworth on 10 July 2013
    The essential dress is just that! A well made attractive dress and my granddaughter looked lovely in it. Up the usual standard I have come to expect from JoJo!
  • review score 0 Aleesha on 09 July 2013
    I love stripes and what better way to bring in the summer than dress my twin girls in this bretton summer dress.
  • review score 0 Meg Hawkins on 03 July 2013
    I picked these dresses as a present for my great niece. Delivery was prompt and the dress looks well finished. The style and material should be good for hot days but it should also do well with a cardigan and tights on colder days.
  • review score 0 Rachel on 28 June 2013
    Lovely, easy-to-wear dress in good quality cotton jersey; a nice weight for British summers and a jaunty style.

  • review score 0 Pamela Scully on 19 June 2013
    Perfect little dress I ordered it in 2 colours , nice and girly without being too frilly and fussy my 2 year old grandaughter loves them.
  • review score 0 Ruth Phillips-Patel on 19 June 2013
    Good quality and a nice fit apart from the length could be a little longer. My daughter goes to a non uniform school but I still want her to look smart and wear clothes that will last so I bought two of these for hot summer days (hoping we get some?!).
  • review score 0 Tracy on 19 June 2013
    Fantastic dress - love it. Thinking of ordering a second in another colour.

    All your clothes are fabulous. I ordered quite a few items as I always do for my grandchildren in readiness fo our holidays. They wash fabulously keep the shape and colours. I could buy the whole catalogue I am one of your biggest fans.
  • review score 0 Alison Collins on 14 June 2013
    A lovely summer dress, well made and washes well. It is slightly thick in material, so I feel this item would suit Irish or UK weather rather than abroad as little one could feel too hot.
  • review score 0 Mrs G on 03 June 2013
    Wonderful dress and lovely fabric, My daughter loves it too!
  • review score 0 Laura on 24 May 2013
    We get these every year - I shall be sad when my daughters are too big for them! Really good quality cotton jersey, and they wash well, and look pretty without being frilly-frou-frou.

  • review score 0 Wendy Anderson on 08 May 2013
    I purchased two of these dresses, one for my 4yo daughter and one as a gift. My daughter is crazy about her pretty pink dress, the cotton is beautifully soft and looks adorable on. Another success from JoJo Maman Bebe!
  • review score 0 Vicky Berry on 07 May 2013
    A real staple of my daughter's wardrobe, I buy two of these every season, long or short sleeved as appropriate, for her to wear to nursery. They wash brilliantly, and keep their shape. A little small in sizing, my 3.5 year old is wearing the 4-5. Am so disappointed that we've reached the largest size, when I would happily put her in these dresses for at least another year.
  • review score 0 Unknown on 03 May 2013
    Perfect summer dress.
    Excellent quality and washes well.
  • review score 0 Jenny on 28 April 2013

    Such good value and so pretty. Highly recommended.
  • review score 0 Penny Harries on 24 April 2013
    I bought two of these for my little granddaughters and they are lovely. Usual JoJo high quality - and they wash well.
  • review score 0 Cranberry on 20 April 2013
    I bought two of these lovely dresses. I bought them for my daughter when she was 18 months and now that we've moved to France, I decided to get them again. I got age 4 - 5 for my three and a half year old. We bought the raspberry one and the cornflower one. The raspberry one was as the picture, but the cornflower was not! It is more like the blue bricks in the MegaBloks. If I didn't live abroad, I might take it back. Having said that, the dresses are certainly very essential. Like other reviewers, I wish JoJo did clothes up to the age of 10. These kinds of dresses would be great on older girls too - as would their other clothes, shoes and tights.
  • review score 0 Kate on 14 April 2013
    Lovely item, will certainly get a lot of wear out of it, excellent quality.
  • review score 0 Gabby on 10 April 2013

  • review score 0 Fidders on 09 April 2013
    My daughter LOVES these dresses. She is very fussy with what she will wear. These dresses are very comfortable, easy to wear to all occasions, wash well. A little girls wardrobe must.
  • review score 0 Carolyn B on 10 February 2013
    Was bought this dress as a christening present in pale pink. Love the hemline and the fabric. Washes great. Will be buying more from this company, starting with same dress in navy.
  • review score 0 Amy on 18 August 2012
    A great little dress - comfy, cool and washes brilliantly. I bought age 3-4 for my tall 2 and 1/2 year old. Will definately become a summer staple just as the long sleeved version is in winter.
  • review score 0 kate on 12 August 2012

    I love these dresses, so comfortable and easy to wear for playing and for best. Thee are my daughters summer staple. Wash nicely too.
  • review score 0 VPC on 07 July 2012
    The name says it all - it IS an essential! My daughter lives in hers summer and winter (they look great with a long sleeved tshirt underneath for colder days). It is her favourite outfit, probably because it is comfy AND pretty (her criteria!) Over a year of regular wear/washing and they are still in a good enough condition to pass down to her little sister. Definitely recommend.
  • review score 0 Mel on 25 June 2012
    Have ordered 5 times in 2 months from Jo Jo sppedy reliable delivery, lovely things. This dress is gorgeous good quality and a lovely deep colour, very long lasting for a long legged child, I ordered age 2 for my almost 3ft 1 year old and its calf length and will look great even as it gets shorter. Washes well, holds shape and colour. Definite recommend
  • review score 0 HBW on 22 June 2012
    Brilliant! This is the second order we have had for these dresses for our twin girls. They wash very well, time after time and always look lovely. Being able to save £5 when buying two is an added bonus. It enables us to buy two dresses the same but in different colours so our girls look similar but retain their individulaity.
  • review score 0 V Fisher on 17 June 2012
    Excellent dress. Good weight fabric and wash really well. The colours don't fade. Excellent with tights and a cardi in cooler weather too.
  • review score 0 Penny Stubbs on 13 June 2012
    Lovely dress, good quality material and I am sure it will wash and wear very well. Should be suitable for summer and with tights and a cardy will last through the winter too.
  • review score 0 amanda walsh on 11 June 2012
    This dress is not only adorable but also excellent quality and if you buy 2 in different colours the £5 off deal makes it a real bargain.
    Its quite heavy jersey cotton so warm enough to wear with tights and a cardy on cooler days or alone on warm days I will definately be buying a lot mor of my daughters clothes from Jo Jo.
  • review score 0 Catriona Aves on 08 June 2012
    This dress is, indeed, the essential one. I have bought a version of this dress for the last couple of years and it is so easy to wear and care for, and it looks gorgeous.
  • review score 0 Tamsin miles on 29 May 2012
    I love this dress and it feels very good quality. It washes well and even looks good without ironing. My only critism is that it is very wide my 3 year old is pretty average size and this does lead to flopping off her shoulders. Other than that it does look pretty.
  • review score 0 Carly West-Burnham on 28 May 2012
    I was initially very pleased with this dress (having bought two for my daughter.) However, I have only washed it twice and holes have appeared all around the seam (where the top joins to the skirt.) Very disappointed as I had expected it to be better quality and to last longer. I wouldn't recommend this item.

  • review score 0 Ellie C-W on 21 May 2011
    Great summer dresses, have been buying them for my daughter for 4 years, now can't resist buying more for my younger daughter as there are new colours almost every year. Only wish there were larger sizes as they're such a great basic dress and my oldest has now grown out of them all!
  • review score 0 chatonette on 24 January 2011
    good wardrobe staple dresses. winter dresses from the same collection were more generously sized, but these are more true-to-size. thought they would be large, so the size i ordered was too small. had to re-order.
