Runs big. My daughter wears a 6 and should have ordered a 4. Not sure about the hat. It just seems to lay on the head. Only about an inch deep. Bows at the bottom of the dress are so cute but 1 pink bow faces down like the picture and the other faces out to the left. I need to remove the bow holder and re-sew it so it will look like the picture. I will probably order a different one. I'm taking her out to dinner with the pirates after the pirate show. Better quality than Amazon.
