Why don't you just sow it up and when you need to change her nappy just pop them down??

or lengthen the shoulder straps? it sounds like they're too short in the body for her

not possible. I hate the things because of that. My aunt thinks that anyone who lives in the UK is sadly deprived and always buys gifts saying "I know you can't get these in the UK so I've brought them over for you." Dungarees with poppers at the crotch is her big thing right now. We don't have them cos they don't work! I'm sure they're for sale here, but we don't want them! I agree, sew them up and find an alternative!

yes marina, i think she had the blue ones on. did you notice i didn't put the cardi on? (too much gunk around for my liking....)

I am still picking chocolate out of our cuffs yes, they looked very nice. And have a very good inner vision of your dd1 heckling poor old President Tony

I stitched all of dd's dungers up. If they weren't popping open she was pulling them open. My dd is a little flasher lol.

DD always has tights on at the mo anyway as she likes to take socks off as well. She'll be one of these girls that flashes at every opertunity when she's had a drink!! In fact no she won't she won't be allowed out to drink in the 1st place!!!!

She's got a lovely red cord dress that she wears with jeans and a furry gilet. I call it her Trinny and Sussanah outfit. The only problem being the dress is pop studs so stays on for all of 5 minutes!!!!

they are too small , thats why

Although I love the look of dungarees, I try to avoid them - when mine were/are little they wriggle sooo much when changing nappies it is a nightmare to get all the poppers done up. For older kids they always seem to need help when going to the toilet...

I've gone off them since I switched to reusable nappies...just no way of doing the poppers up over that Teletubby bum!
