Kids Clothing Sizes

We use the Australian Standards size coding scheme (AS1182-1997) for our clothing sizes. This page shows the body measurements that garments are made to fit for each size (newborn to size 6). Details of measurements used and garment measurements are in the product description. I am also developing a ‘slim fit’ range and details will be available as soon as possible.

Garments are made to fit body measurements as shown in the following tables. The approximate age that a child would be expected to have these measurements is also supplied. Please see notes below the tables for further information.

Body measurements used to make children’s clothing from size Newborn to 6:

Size NB 000 00 0 1
Height (cm) 56 62 68 76 84
Weight (kg) 4-5 6 8 10 12

Size 2 3 4 5 6

Waist (cm) 54 55 56 57 58
~Age (years) 2.5 3.5 4.5 5.5 6.5

Please note that the tables relate to body measurements and not the actual garment measurements. Garment measurements are provided in the product descriptions.

Measurements in the tables are as given by the Australian Standard AS1182 – 1997, Size coding scheme for infants/ and children/s clothing – underwear and outerwear.

If you wish an item to be made with custom measurements, please contact Christine at Wispy Threads to discuss.
