Here is the handy Smafolk Size Guide to help you decide which size you need when you’re looking to buy Smafolk clothing.
This is a comprehensive guide which shows you where to measure for t-shirts and trousers, plus less frequently purchased items like gloves. It is recommended that you measure your child without clothes. Then find the measurement in the tables below which will indicate which is likely to be the best fitting size.
All Smafolk clothing is designed to be generous in width, for comfort when moving about. If you’re looking to buy tops and dresses look at the chest measurements, and for bottoms look at the waist and hip measurements.
How to measure your child:
Ask your child to stand against a wall with their legs together and measure from the top of their head to the floor.
2. Chest width (for t-shirts and tops)
Measure around your child’s chest, right below the armpit where they are widest. Your child needs to stand with their arms relaxed by their sides.
3. Waist width (for trousers, shorts, skirts etc)
Measure around their waist, which is the the narrowest point around on your child’s upper body. Again your child needs to stand with their arms relaxed by the sides.
4. Hip width
Measure around the hips, which are at the widest place on the bottom.
5. Inner leg length (for trousers, leggings etc)
Measure from crotch to floor, along the leg.
6. Head circumference (for hats)
Measure around the head, at the widest place. The measurement must be taken tightly around the head.
7. Length of hand (for gloves & mittens)
Measure from wrist to fingertip, along the back of your child’s hand.
8. Length of foot (for shoes, moccasins, boots etc)
Measure the length from heel to tip of the big toe. Your child must be standing up so the weight is distributed correctly on the foot. Placing your child’s foot on top of a measuring tape makes it easier to read. Then to allow a little room for growing, add 1½ cm to the measurement and choose a size equivalent to the length of the inner sole in the table below.
