An overall recommendation for each silhouette included in our 2023 Christmas Collection can be found below. We have included this information, along with individual measurement charts, on the product pages of each item.

Walker/1yr - 10YR: Size up if in between sizes. Most of our dresses are made with a bow sash rear, which can be used to adjust for any extra room in the bodice.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

 

What is upsizing?

Upsizing refers to selecting the larger size based on your child's corresponding age.

For example, a 9 month old at Christmas falls into the 6-12 month age bracket in regards to size. If advised to order "True to Size" you would order a size 6-12 months. However, if recommended to upsize you would order a Size 12-18 months. 

 

 

What styles are most appropriate for babies wearing cloth nappies?

Most of our styles are suitable for cloth nappy wearing babies, with the exception of our woven non-stretch shorts (The Suspender Shorts/Tartan Shorts/Nutcracker Shorts).
