The elastic waistband gathers the fabric for a tailored fit, measure around the waist (around belly button for children) and choose the size closest from the measurements below. If you fall between sizes, the pattern designer recommends sizing down as the elastic will allow for 2-3" stretch

The Matilda dress is designed to hit at the top of the knee measured from shoulder to bottom hem. If you wish to have a longer or shorter dress length please feel free to contact me about making a custom size
