Joan Calabrese is one of the most celebrated designers in bridal couture. Made with exceptional quality and detailing, this dress is built with the same workmanship as wedding gowns. Due to the request of the manufacturer to adhere to MSRP, the 10 percent volume sales discount does not apply to regular priced Joan Calabrese dresses. NOTE LENGTH: Please use model photos as a guide- For example, if you see that the hemline falls to mid calf on the model- then the pattern and design is a mid calf length dress. If it falls more at the ankle, then it is designed to be tea- length. Floor length will be very close to the floor. Keep in mind that every child wears dresses differently based upon their body proportions. Also keep in mind that if you try to buy a dress that was designed to be tea length in a larger size to get more length to make it be longer- everything about the dress will be larger (armholes and neckline and overall size of the dress width). Our designers do not make custom sizes nor can they add any fabric or sleeves to a dress. The size chart for Joan on the SIZE CHART tab below. Keep in mind that these are approximate finished garment measurements, so you will want to measure your child and make sure that their body measurements are under the garment measurements that are listed.
- You will want to measure your child (bare-skinned) with a smooth tape measure and make sure that the child is relaxed to ensure room for comfort. Get an actual measurement-do not place your finger or give an inch, you will want exactly what she is in inches. If you do not have a soft tape measure, then you can always take a piece of string or ribbon, and lay it down on the tape measure to get the number.
- Chest: Take the tape measure under her arms and go directly over the bust line.
- Waist: Go around them with the measuring tape right at the belly button. Some children have a slight pooch belly, so you will want to measure the widest point of where it sticks out.
- Length: Take the tape measure from the top of the child's shoulder to the floor. You will take the tape measure all the way down the front of her and see where it falls on the leg. For ballerina length, the dress should fall between mid-calf to ankle.
- Please keep in mind that most of our dresses should fall between mid-calf to ankle so looking at the length measurement is important. Some sizing charts are generic ones provided to us from the manufacturer so please look at where the dress falls on the model or mannequin and consider the length it would be on your child.
- If you have measured your child and still have questions regarding sizing we are more than happy to help you find the best size. Please submit an email to our Sizing Department and we will help suggest the size you need. Please note when submitting a sizing inquiry, the information needed is: age, chest, waist, top of shoulder to floor measurement and the wear date.
