4-6 year old
8-10 year old
Care: Machine wash with a small amount of gentle detergent, not Tide. Tumble dry on hot or medium, and remove from the dryer while still very slightly damp so wrinkles do not set. Shake the fabric out flat and smooth it with your hands. If you can dry outside, let fresh air and sun work their magic.
See Gabriela, putting on her pinny. I tell the story how I found the pinafore's unique design. Watch this video.
The children loved their gifts, immediately pulling them on offer their heads, and were delighted to find the surprise dolls in the pockets! Mom, Dad, and Aunts loved them, too!
My daughter immediately put it on and has barely taken it off since. She wears for arts & crafts, helping in the kitchen, and over whatever she is wearing simply because she likes it (especially the pockets). Modeling both sizes on one child (and listing their age) for comparison in your photos would be helpful in choosing a size. I chose the smaller for my average-sized six year old but it is a bit difficult to get on over her head.
The children's Pinafore-Aprons are precious -- most wonderful quality linen, most adorable design, such lovely color options! They are something that will last for years and years. My only one minor dissatisfaction is that there is not a size between the 4-6 and 8-10. The recipient of this apron falls right between the two where the 4-6 just fits (no room for growth) yet the 8-10 is quite large at the moment. I bought two (for two girls ages 4 and 6) so was able to try both on her. Being that they are expensive (but worth it as they are truly beautiful) I couldn't justify getting the smaller that would last at best a year (likely less), so went with the larger (which at the moment she swims in it).
I bought two as gifts, one for each granddaughter (4 and 6), though haven’t given to them yet. For the 4-year old, I ordered the size 4-6. For the (then to be, when I give it to her) 6-year old, who is slightly tall for her age (though quite thin), I was puzzled which size to get. Hmm, a couple of the website photos show a 3-year old wearing the 4-6, and it looks like it fits her fine, and one reviewer said it fit her average-sized 3-year old perfectly but was a bit small for and difficult to put on her average-sized 5-year old. So I took a guess and ordered her the 8-10. Now that I’ve received it, it does look quite a bit big, but better too big than a bit small, so hopefully it will fit her well enough that she’ll enjoy it/feel excited to wear it when she receives it. But sizing aside, these children’s pinafore aprons are truly BEAUTIFUL! The St. Barts Aqua is such a sweet color, a color most any little girl would love. The style is great, the little doll in the pocket adds a bit of fun, and the weight of linen is perfect!
My grandchildren love to cook with their adventurous parents. I gave the soft blue to Cecile for her 6th birthday and I thought I’d better give one to Jack too, he likes to help also.
