Has anyone bought this Mini Boden playsuit and is it suitable for a 10 year old?
Well, the weather has taken a turn for the better and there is an outdoor party this weekend. To be honest she did say she would like a play suit Im just not sure of the pattern, if its what she had in mind. The Mini Boden quality has been so dire lately, I dont want to make a mistake!! Margarita, do you find it flimsy?
dd chose it herself, but yes I do admit it is rather thin, fine for my dc who live in shorts all year round but perhaps a little flimsy for the UK unless it had a t-shirt under it? It does have adjustable shoulder straps that would make it easy to put something under.
The one with spaghetti straps is a jersey fabric and not a very good fit. The drawstring waist makes it bunch up and look ugly but it needs pulling in at the waist or makes ven five yr olds look pot bellied! The one you showed is lovely, yes the material is thin but it's wellcut and flattering. I wish I had brought dd the other patterns in it as well. If your ten year old likes it I dont see why not.
