We have a set in size Small and a set in size Large. Both have a problem with the lowest frog closure on the shirt. The cross piece has fallen out on the catch probably because the lower portion of it has come unglued and untwisted.
The problem seems to be in that rather than using a one string "knot" they used one string looped twice around another string fashioned into a flattened loop. This created a T shaped catch, rather than the normal rounded knot and was probably done to keep the shirt from coming undone easily. However, it seems they didn't stitch the 2 strings together at their intersections, and instead relied on glue.
Here's how the frog closure was made:
I'll insert photos of what has happened and then will post the best way I find to remedy the situation.
I just bought this set on eBay for (believe it or not)...99 cents. I have the same problem with one of the closures, but I'm going to put a couple of velcro dots so that it stays closed. I'll modify the closure missing the t-bar, but for a dollar I'm not going to quibble.
My daughter is a size 8 and I bought the M. They are really quite large on her - she'll get a long time out of them. Some of AG's pj's are made small - these definitely aren't.
Lovely fabric - she could really wear the upper portion as a top for an Asian inspired outfit.
