Kids clothes size question

Posted by on Aug. 17, 2011 at 4:22 PM

If you are ordering clothes on line for a child and the sizes are 4, 6, etc. 

Is the size 4 a child's size or a toddler size? 

If it's a child's size, what age of a child typically wears a size 4? 

If you were to take this outfit to a seamstress would it be possible to size down to a toddler size?

Typically, it would be a child size 4 and 6.  Usually, if it's a toddler it has a T behind it.  I haven't seen anything past a 5T though in stores and online.  Usually, toddler sizes are wider in the waist because of a potential diaper or a little more baby fat.  The size 4 is usually longer in the leg and more slender in the waist.

Okay, my daughter is incredibly thin (like seriously, adjustable waistband pants fall off without a belt.) Do you think it would be fine to take up the length of a skirt?
