When the little girl that got the garment first got it she protested. "No. I don't want to wear a dress!" But her mum managed to convince her that it is long shirt, or possibly a tunic. Then she tried it on and was thrilled by the softness of the fabric. It is a brushed cotton jersey and soft as a peach.
And as her mum pointed out. Worn over a pair of jeans this tunic will be a pretty cool one, but with a pair of lace-trimmed white leggings it will appear very sweet. And. It is definitely not a dress. It's a long shirt. *LOL*
