girl garb

Miss sunshine modelling the size 3-4 Donkey shorts I've been making for this weekends Steiner School Fair.

Available in sizes 1-2, 3-4 and 5-6 years.

As you can see they sit long on a two year old!

I couldn't quite convince the nearly three and a half year old to model them for me today
...something to do with the pink fairy pocket and lack of a lolly pop with which to bribe him!

(but they are the same size as a blue pair he has which sit just below the knee).

I always encourage parents to go the next size up if their child is at the tail end of the age bracket. But if you're a fan of getting extra mileage out of your girls garb, then getting their tooshies into a pair the next size up - and wearing them as 7/8th length trou - is a sensible idea anyway.

To give you some idea, the waist band of size 3-4 measures 46- 65 cms with an outer leg measurement of 40 cms. They are quite roomy too-which makes them non restrictive to play in!
Also shown with a contrast spotty pocket in size 5-6 years.
Corduroy is the perfect fabric for pants like these. It endures. Dirt brushes right off it and it wears as well as denim but with a softness akin to velvet.

It always reminds me of Paddington bear and Winnie the Pooh - particularly in this caramel colour.

To recap: the Steiner School Fair is on this Saturday from 10-3 pm at 19 Ombersley, Opawa. Admission is free. Come along for some good old-fashioned family fun in the sun, with all day music, fairyland, games, books, real fruit ice creams, organic food, white elephants and lots of others stalls. See you there!

...If you're not able to make it, but you're keen for a pair of donkey shorts-check out my shop this time next week or drop me an e mail gretchen (at) imotion (dot) co (dot) nz

I do them in boys colours too!
