These felted dresses are wonderful kindy uniforms. I do not put silk into the dresses for the little girls, as it might makes it too warm and less breathable. The pure wool makes it warm but airy, and since its beautiful, girls love to wear it, they can be princesses and fairies as they just love to wear costumes, and they want to wear them every day. Why not make them out of amazing and sturdy materials that keeps them safe from the cold, padded when they fall and most of all makes them feel special. I fortified the hemlines to prevent fraying. It is also water repellent and very easy to remove any dirt, paint or glue, does not matter what craft-skills they practice or how muddy a puddle they found nothing will ruin it.
