My 4-year-old, Silly Bean, is starting to get a little picky about what she’ll wear. Lately she’s been going through a princess kick and she only wants to wear whatever she deems to be princessy (sometimes her idea of princess clothes involves blues and greens so it’s not all bad). So I sold the idea of the maxi dress as being a princess dress because it was long!
She actually liked it, phew!
Unfortunately things have been a little hectic around here so the day I finally could get pictures there was thunder and lightning outside, boo! So inside pics were what we were stuck with. 🙁
I’m hoping it clears up and I get a chance for better pictures before this post goes live. Ha
I REALLY like the sizing chart. It gives measurements for chest, waist AND height. Silly Bean is slightly above average in height for her age but is on the skinny side. She measured in the 2T for the chest and waist but in the middle of the size range for size 6 for height. She has wide shoulders so I was worried the 2T wouldn’t fit right on the shoulders, so I cut the bodice with the 4T width with the 6 length. I think it fits great!
For the skirt I cut the regular 4 length since I had added length to the bodice. I probably could have cut the tall length as it was a little short when I tried it on her unhemmed. I ended up doing a smaller hem than recommended and it falls about an inch above her ankles. Which, honestly, is just fine since she can be a bit of a clutz 😉
