PEGEEN SIZING CHART and SKIRT LENGTH
Based on Standing Height of Child - From Head to Toe (in inches)

Instructions on proper measuring:

Although we do not show it here, measuring should be done without clothing on, or at the very most, over undergarments. As photo below, do not measure on an angle.

The wrong way to measure

Below:

The PROPER way to measure - parallel to the floor.

The correct way to measure

Below:

When reading the measurement, look where the metal edge of the plastic tape measure intersects with the tape and lay tape flat against the skin. This measurement reads for her chest at 29.5"

You will do the same at the waist.

The correct way to read the measurement

Hollow to hem or finished is inaccurate. Do not send as this is NOT a measurement we want or will use.  In some cases, for style 402 & 407, you will be asked to send a 4th measurement. Discuss this with our designers.

FLOWER GIRL DRESS SIZING CHART/RING BEARER'S SIZING CHART

Sizing Chart Instructions for Measuring and an explaination about How to Measure :  All manufacturers are different.  We are asked if we are true to size.  What is that, we wonder? True to whose size? 

In order to properly size your child, we need you to follow the instructions EXACTLY below:

  • We need only STANDING HEIGHT, CHEST & WAIST to be sent in with your order or we will email you asking for it. This ensures accurate sizing.  If you waive giving us these measurements as some people have to do you will not get a SIZING GUARANTEE.
  • Do not give us what bridal stores call a Hollow to Hem or Nape to Floor because our Philosophy is those measurements are inconsistent and may vary from depending on who is taking that measurement.
  • We DO NOT need you to provide us with the finished length; it is merely a guide for you so you know about where the dress will fall on the child. Some alterations may still have to be done as the clothing is made from patterns to fit the general population.

 "Made-to-Order" is not the same as "Made-to-Measure"

Made to Order dresses are manufactured according to standard sizing (versus a child's specific measurements) when the order is placed. By providing your child’s chest, waist and height measurements, I'm able to recommend the best size for.  If you prefer our Special Fit program (Made-to-Measure) because the child doesn’t fit in our size ranges, it is only a charge of $20 OR if she is plus size - $35.  Pegeen is known for it’s Magic in a Box fit, so we can provide you with the way to go on that.

You may email us these measurements later, however rest assured we will ask for them OR you can ask for a SIZING GUARANTEE WAIVER - meaning your fit is not guaranteed.

During check-out, there is a space called SPECIAL COMMENTS where measurements can be added. Without measurements we do not give a sizing guarantee so please put your measurements on your order! As long as your child fits within the sizing chart above you will not have to get a special fit. For details click here.
