Top Tip!

These are fitted dresses tailored to Joan Calabrese's own size chart which may differ from the regular sizes of dresses normally worn. If you take her measurements using our Size Advice tab and compare with the size chart on the Size Chart tab you won't go wrong.

This size chart gives the measurement of the finished garment in inches, the length is measured from the hollow of the neck (the indentation between the collar bones, located at the base of the neck), down to the hem of the dress.

Video: How To Measure For A First Communion Dress - An Easy Guide

Our single most important piece of advice for anyone shopping for a First Communion Dress is to take the child’s measurements. With three simple measurements for Bust, Waist, and Length you’ll be able to select the correct size without worry. Always compare the child’s measurements to the dress size chart as it is common for each dress to have unique measurements.

Please don’t assume that because your child wears a size 8 in clothing that she will automatically be a size 8 in her communion dress. ALWAYS reference the size chart as some dresses run small and others are cut with generous proportions. The size chart measurements provided are for the finished garment. If the measurements are on the cusp of the size consider the next size up. If you have any questions regarding sizing call the store, we are happy to help. Toll Free phone number1-800-625-4610 / International customers phone +1 (919) 249-7120.

When measuring, please use a sewing or soft tape measure, not a metal retractable tape measure.

BUST

To measure the BUST take a tape measure and wrap it around the entire body where the child’s chest is, just under the armpits at the widest section of the chest.  Hold the tape measure loosely and write down the measurement.

WAIST

To measure the WAIST take the tape measure and wrap it around the entire body where the child’s mid-section is, just above the belly button.  Hold the tape measure loosely and write down the measurement.

LENGTH

The length of a dress is measured from the shoulder to the end of the hemline.  To measure where the hemline will fall on your child take the tape measure and start at the top of the shoulder. Run the tape measure down to end of the given size chart measurement. This will provide you with a guide for where the hem of the dress will fall on your child.

First Communion Dresses come in a variety of lengths including knee length, tea length (between the knee and ankle) and floor length. Your child’s height will determine where the hemline actually falls so knowing the length of the dress is important.

Keep in mind that it may be necessary to hem the Communion Dress if you think it is too long. NOTE: if the hem of the dress has beading or embroidery, shortening the dress may not be possible.
