Puzzling! I searched for photos of her dress online and found some at http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5774477/Parents-three-year-old-girl-appalled-preschool-says-wear-sundress.html
And what I saw didn't look so bad!
Canadian parents have claimed that they were left shocked when their daughter’s preschool told them that their three-year-old daughter’s dress was not acceptable.
Jamie and Sadie Stonehouse sent their daughter Lola to school in a dress with spaghetti straps on one of the hottest days of the year. However, in a Facebook post Sadie explained that she was told the straps were too thin.
“My daughter's school deemed the dress she wore today inappropriate; the straps were under a 2 inch width,” she wrote. “She's 3! Good job rape culture.”
Sadie and Jamie were told that Lola would need to wear a t-shirt under her dress if she wanted to wear it to school again.
“At two inches she might as well just be wearing a shirt,” Jamie told CTV News.
“It’s covering pretty much her whole shoulder and down a bit, so it’s not even a summer dress at that point.”
The parents said the stripy dress, which came down to Lola’s calves, should never have been deemed inappropriate.
“She’s not going to understand. She’s going to think that maybe she did something wrong, when she very much didn’t,” Sadie told the news channel.
“So now she’s going to be questioning her own body. And that’s such a young age to even be thinking of something like that.
“I don’t think any girl should have to worry about how much shoulder she’s exposing when she dresses to go to school or anywhere else. At any age.”
The school’s director refused to comment on the claims, but in a statement toCTV, a spokesperson for the local division wrote:
“Pembina Trails’ schools often share the same roof as day cares and nursery schools, as a convenience to our communities, but child care centers are run completely by separate organizations. In fact, schools in Manitoba are not permitted to operate day cares.
“Our division does not have a dress code policy. Instead, we believe in allowing our school leaders to use discretion and encourage best practices in a respectful way.
“Since this child is not currently one of our students, we would suggest this family connect directly with their nursery school provider.”
