Sizes are indicated by year.
Dresses are pre-shrunk and true to size.
We design our garments with silhouettes to allow for growth spurts and multiple seasons and years of growth. Expect garments to begin looser and longer on the small side of a size, increasing into a more fitted style on the high end of the size.
If your child is above 50% percentile and is on the upper age range of a size we recommend sizing up in order to get the longest lifespan out of your garment.
