Amazingly fast delivery by the way! I have less than a week to sort a fancy dress costume for our little boy who is a tall aged 5 (ordered the small size for 4 to 6 and it's just right). It is for the annual carnival where all the children go in fancy dress and there are prizes for 1st 2nd and 3rd. Last year he didn't win anything in his monster costume and his friend, who had a cobbled together old jacket of mine and looked very cute even though no-one knew what he was, came 3rd! Heartbroken sobs. So I'm onto the game now! It has to look home-made! And cute. Sorry but I don't have a sewing machine and less than a week isn't enough time (Ok we forgot about it!) - so have ordered this so he can go as the Artful Dodger. We already have a tophat I made from cardboard for his Dad for another fancy dress do, which is oversized, but looks cute, which is a good job because the hat in this outfit is rubbish and has gone in the bin! (Incidentally making a top hat from cardboard is really easy - look it up on the internet - I just bought a big piece of black card from stationery shop and a roll of black masking tape and used a dinner plate for the brim circle). So - that's the home-made bit, ha ha! The rest of the suit, as others have commented is tacky thin polyester stuff, but it looks the job. The jacket, shirt and tie are all one garment that fastens down the back with velcro. I don't like the trousers much so will probably just cut raggedy edges on a pair we have that are too short. He probably still won't win a prize, as the whole event seems hugely competitive, but at least I'll have tried to get him a decent costume this year! If he wins, I'll eat my tophat (and come on here and update). Basically, this is very good value for the price and looks the part - as long as you don't expect a tophat.

I bought this for my 6 year old boys Victorian dress up day at school. He was a little reluctant to wear it, being more of a sports kit type of kid, but he looked great. Reasonable quality and reasonable price

I got this for Victorian Day at school. The price is pretty good for a whole outfit but the material is a bit cheap. Don't go near a naked flame dressed in it!

Returned as ordered a Medium and received small. Used small size anyway as needed urgently for school trip. Very thin material so my son had to wear it over jeans and tshirt. Did the job perfectly well so not too badly priced but sort of expected more...

I was very impressed with this Victorian outfit which I bought for my boys Victorian day at primary school, he looked just the part. I would definitely recommend this and will be buying other outfits from this seller.

Bought for my child who is a tall 6 year old (121cm) and slim. Ordered the medium size and it is just the right size. Hope that helps when ordering. Looks cute on too!

Great little costume bought for a victorian fancy dress. The jacket did tear after weekend's wear, but just can't complain for the price. Little boys are rough!

Good value for money as you get the whole outfit, as some of the costumes I looked at didn't contain the trousers. My son looks so cute in it.

Lovely costume. Well made, little one looked fab. Would recommend to anyone. Bought a bigger size to be safe and was just right.

The trousers were ripped up one leg. Around 30cm of a rip. Was too late to send back as they were needed the next day.
