Brown Nativity Gown Child Costume
Good for the price!
Nice basic tunic/gown that can be accessorized rustically or richly to create shepherds or wise men. Washed well (even though it said hand wash, I used cold water and a gentle cycle on my machine with no problems. Line dry, though, as this material will probably shrink in the dryer.) The material stretches, which is good for our needs as we have an outdoor Nativity and have to fit over bulky clothing.

Great Product for Church Program
This is a great little robe. With coupon codes, I scored them at barely over $5. I couldn't make something for that price. Nice quality. They fit my 11 year old son down to an 8 year old at church. The head piece is great, too (ordered separately).

Worth the Money Spent
In case anyone is wondering....the length is 44 inches from the top of the shoulder to the floor. Fits my 10 yr old son well and 12 yr old son barely, but I think it would be too tight for a 14 yr old. It's nice because the fabric is loose and stretchy, but be careful of snags with this smooth fabric. It's been a great buy for our family because it has been used for trunk-or-treats and "when the saints go marching in" events. I can also cold water wash these and hang them dry with no issues.

Good quality for the price
I bought several of the gowns for a Christmas play. I was surprised at the quality of the gowns for the price I paid.

I love the simplicity and price of gowns, but wish there was a medium size. There were kids that were caught between the large and small and simply hemming them was not enough. They needed the length of the large, but shoulder seams hung on their arms.

Good for small kids
Robe is easy to put on and looks good. Very small, though. We used with 3rd grade girls who are slender and it worked fine. Would not recommend for larger boys. Saying a size 12-14 would be a stretch. They might get them on, but they would be very tight - not what you would be looking for in a shepherd's costume. Oriental Trading should offer more sizes, larger sizes.

good quality at a good price
I purchased several of these gowns last year for our church's Christmas program and they were just perfect. I decided to purchase a few more in different colors for our next Christmas play. They are great gowns for young children aged 5 to 11, and I would buy these again if needed.

I bought this for a children's Christmas program and it worked out perfectly. The kids looked absolutely adorable and they were easy to dress. Would purchase again if needed.....

Excellent product for the price!
Our church purchased these for our Christmas program. We ordered several different colors in the gowns and hats. Since small and large were the only sizes availabe, we were not sure how to order since we seem to have a lot of kids who would normally wear medium. The small fit our 5-7 year olds easy. The large is pretty long. I have a 9 year old boy who is average height and the large was too long on him. The good thing is you can use belts to shorten if you want , but we decided to use fabric tape to hem them. It worked out fine and we can remove the tape to use on different kids next year. The one thing you need to be aware of is some of the hats and gowns that claim to be the same color are not an exact match! This did not bother us, but some people may not like this. We are very happy with our puchase!
