So you’ve bought the best set of waterproofs for your little adventurer (from Nipper Skipper naturally!) and they’re the perfect fit. But then when you come to try them on again months (or even a year later) you find that your child has shot up like a green bean and the arms and legs are too short…grrrr. Handily, if you’ve purchased any of Didriksons kid’s range of nylon weave waterproof items you’re in luck as they all incorporate the amazing ‘Extend Size’ system.
The Extend Size system involves a very clever little special inside seam in the arms and legs that can be opened to extend approximately one size. There is a special red seam on the inside lining of the arms and legs which can be unpicked to extend the length of the garment by roughly one size. This allows the garment “to grow” normally at the same rate as the child and in most cases in size over a full season or more. Remember to use a seam ripper when you loosen the stitching so the fabric will not be damaged. How clever is that? It’s one of the reasons that we choose to stock Didriksons performance clothing for children – great quality at a sensible price with a commitment to working in an economical, social and environmentally sustainable manner.
