Serendipity...

dek9 has been kind enough to pass along out-grown clothes from her daughter to my girls. Since she has way better taste than mine this has been a fine thing.
This morning I was poking through the closet looking for something to put on Lady Godiva. I came across a pair of cropped jeans in a 2t size that Dawn had bought on clearance and T had outgrown before she had a chance to wear. (Have I mentioned that the sizing of childrens' clothing is random and irrational?) They looked about the right size so I pulled them out and tried them on her. They fit perfectly. I turned them over to look for more tags and stickers (there seem to be a great many of tags and stickers on clothes these days.) and the butt was embroidered with flowers in EXACTLY the same colors as the shirt I had already put on her.
I bought that shirt at a totally different store, also on clearance,
because it was a 24 mo size bodysuit. (All part of my effort to keep clothes on the child.)

So now she has an outfit!
Sheer Luck!

BTW, I have a TON more clothes for you - it's been a while. You can always feel free to pick through and say you can't use something, too - I'm glad those worked out for you, though!

And even better, now that you have a second girl you can re-use that adorable tiered summer dress next year, if you still have it.

Yay!

As for the sizing of children's clothes - it is no more random or irrational that the sizing of women's clothing.

Katie was the wrong size in the wrong season for some of the wonderful summer outfits. Julie is just right. At this moment she is wearing the orange checked top and capri's. : ) And, yes. I kept the tiered dress. And the patchwork one.

I absolutely agree with Dawn on the sizing issues on both women's and children's clothing. X means X but only with Y manufacturer and so on. In *your* case, you have Chunky Northern European; in mine, we have narrow-hipped, small and slim Southern Chinese. Susan does 99.999% of the clothes shopping for Meredith, but that's because she knows the exotic mesh of which stores and which of their suppliers' stuff actually has a ghost of a chance of fitting the child!

I've tried buying clothes for both of them, and find the process to be horrifying because of the bing-bing-bing Ricochet-Rabbit chaos on sizing.
