“ Brand: Asda / Range: George / Type: Girls cardigan / Sizes: 9mths - 3yrs „
George clothing is always a first for me when shopping for nursery clothes for my daughter mainly because of the cheap prices but also because nursery clothes never stand the test of time so quality is not such a big issue when purchasing clothes for this purpose.
I picked up the striped boyfriend style cardigan because the multi coloured pattern makes it very versatile with what I can pair it with. It looks good with any pair of jeans and t-shirt and it even looks ok with leggings because it has a slightly longer length.
I bought the cardigan for around £7-£8 pound; I forget the exact amount but it was within this price bracket. The cardigan comes in several sizes ranging from 9 months to 4 years. I bought the 3-4 year cardigan whilst my daughter was 3 and the fit was perfect. This is definitely one of the biggest benefits of this cardigan. I generally find that I have to buy bigger sized cardigans to fit my daughter but this one fits perfectly and doesn't leave her top dangling out of the bottom or her wrists showing at the sleeves.
The cardigan is a simple design having horizontal multi coloured stripes in a mix of bright colours including yellow, pink, blue and purple. It has a simple button front with a total of 6 buttons all of which are relatively easy enough for a young child to do by themselves. The cardigan also has 2 small pockets at the front, these are mostly unusable but my daughter likes to put some small little trinket inside.
The cardigan is made from 100% cotton; it is machine washable, dryer safe and ironable. These are all plus points for any item of children's clothing and makes it very easy to maintain. I have found the cardigan to be a great surprise. We have had it for several months now and it is still looking like new despite it being worn several times, the main purpose for this as nursery wear. My daughter hasn't complained about it being uncomfortable and I find that it looks comfortable and it also has a very soft feel to it.
The sleeve ends and the bottom of the cardigan are elasticated giving it a better fit and making it look more fitted when worn. This is definitely one of the best items of clothing I have bought from the George range at Asda and I would definitely recommend it. It's not overly thick so I would recommend it being worn as a summer, autumn cardigan rather than a winter wrap up.
