Sizing options within each listing refer to standard measures within each age group and have been tried and tested on actual children. They also work as a guide to estimate the amount of fabric / haberdashery needed to make the garment based on the standard measurements within each age group.

All costumes can be made to measure.
Please get in touch to provide the measurement of your child unless you want the garment to be made in standard measurements.

Care for your costume

If in doubt, we recommend all costumes - especially the bird capes - to be dry cleaned only.

Some items can be spot cleaned, please contact us if you need instructions.

Pirates: Shirts and Trousers are washable at 30C.

Bird Capes: They can be ironed. However, please be very careful and iron them only from the wrong side (the inside of the cape). If the cape gets creased during storage, hang it out, then iron at low temperatures from the wrong side.

Superheroes: The cape and cuffs are made from pure cotton to ensure safety (low flammability) and durability for the kids. They do crease. You can iron them, but don't use steam on or directly contact the metallic fabric.

Clown Collars: Those made from pure satin can be washed as delicates at 30C. Don't wash tulle collars in the machine.
