My original costumes were designed for Key Stage 1 children to wear, which would be age 4 - 7. However, I fully appreciate that children come in all shapes & sizes, and also that they don't like to feel constrained. My costumes have always therefore been designed to be loose fitting, which means they will be comfortable. It also means the costumes don't need any fastenings - no buttons, zips or velcro.
The length of the Medium sized tunic, from nape of neck to hem, is approximately 75cm long, and around the chest is approximately 86cm.
As an illustration of how the costumes fit different ages, please take a look at the two mannequins below.

This smaller mannequin has a height of 100cm, which is equivalent to the height of an age 3 - 4 year old child.

This larger mannequin has a height of 133 cm, which is equivalent to the height of an age 8 - 9 year old child.

From these pictures you can see that the same costume, in the original 'Medium' size, can go from an ankle length costume on a 3 - 4 year old, to a knee length costume on an 8 - 9 year old.
With trousers underneath (red and black socks optional!)
The costumes are roomy enough that a child can wear leggings, or trousers underneath if they prefer.
The 'Large' size costume has the same basic design as the medium costumes, but is longer and wider and will fit children from around age 7 up to age 10 or 11.
The length of the Large sized tunic, from nape of neck to hem, is approximately 90cm long. The Chest measurement is approximately 108cm.
