Chosing a clothing size:
The European clothing size is equal to the length of your child in cm, measured without shoes. Always chose a size larger than the size of your child, unless the size of your child is exactly the same as the clothing size. Children clothes don't come in small, medium, large and extra large. The patterns on my website are sized medium. Is your child bigger than average, chose one size larger and shorten the sleeves with 1 à 1,5 cm (0,4 - 0,6 in).
