What Size to Order?

All of our flower girl dresses, communion dresses, page boy outfits and christening outfits are made to order so we can ensure they fit well on the big day - the big difference in buying off the peg clothes and hand made to order!

We do not offer a definitive size guide for our clothing as some styles can differ a little in width or length. Our sizing is standard for english sizing and tends to be more generous than most European brands. In all our clothing, we allow for room and ease. We recommend that you order the size that the child normally wears and if they are not a standard size for their age, you can give us measurements and we can make it to fit. There is no extra charge for this service. We are happy to advise and discuss any queries you have re sizing and fit.

The key measurements we require are:

Dresses - chest, nape of neck (base of neck at the back) to waist, nape of neck to required length of dress (below the knee, mid calf, ankle length etc)

Shirts - chest, nape of neck to hem (mid bottom), underarm to wrist

Shorts/trousers - waist, waist to crotch, inside leg to required length ( below knee for shorts, top of shoes for trousers)

Waistcoats - chest, nape of neck to below waist, underarm to below waist

Rompers - chest, nape of neck to crotch ( with nappy on)

 Once we have the measurements, Naomi, our pattern maker, can then compare them to our standard pattern sizing and adjust accordingly. If she has any doubts about the measurements provided, she will query and double check!
