I'm sewing a sundress for my niece who lives overseas, and I need a couple of measurement. I'm having a tough time getting a hold of her parents, so I'm wondering if anybody here has a petite 3- 3.5 year old daughter, and could check these measurements? I need chest, as well as length between armpit and knee. If anyone could help me out that would be soooo super!!!<br>
Thanks!<br><br>

You can find a standard size chart here, towards the bottom on the left:<br><a href="http://www.elegantstitches.com/OttobreKidsFall2009Collection.htm" target="_blank">http://www.elegantstitches.com/Ottob...Collection.htm</a><br><br>
At that age, boys and girls tend to be similarly shaped/sized, so it shouldn't matter which sex sizing you use.<br><br>
FWIW, my 3 year old (boy) is "petite," mostly wearing 2T clothes, is about 36 inches tall, and when I sew for him I use the size 92/36.25 by height in that chart, sometimes slimmed down a bit width-wise.
