I second the boden slim fit ones, they are excellent.
alternatively we have an outlet centre near us that has a ralph lauren - you can often get girls jeans there for about £15 (instead of the usual £50! ). They are FANTASTIC for skinny girls with long legs - they fit my 9 year old like a dream....
I don't think I've ever found a pair that fit her properly in Gap I must say
They have super-slim fit in the Autumn preview which I think DD will like but 4 weeks wait and we could do with something for the summer holidays since shorts seem not to be an option due to appalling weather.
A trip to Bicester could well be in order - we are a week into school hols and need some shopping trips
Minty if you are popping out, I'd be really grateful if you could have a look. She's still in bed but I'll measure her when she gets up (or dig around my diary, it may have fairly recent measurements).
We have only found Gap jeans to fit when in the US because the range of sizes out there is so much bigger than here. They fit beautifully on her waist and bottom and no elastic.
The denim jeans at H&M kids are fantastic right now. The do a really cute skinny jean too.
Worth a look
My dd also loves slim jeans and I think the GAP version run too big anyway.
And on a plus note, Boden is doing the skinny jeans again in the autumn and the book goes out in a few wekks.
One other idea -M&S. Usually the fit is huge on my 8.5yo dd who has skinny long legs. However she is wearing a pair of their skinny fit atm and they fit very well (age 9). Plain darkish denim with pink stitching, but otherwise unadorned. Will come back with product code if these sound useful !
