First Communion or Cotillion can be made in Plus Size First Communion Dresses
Special Fit dresses are not returnable or exchangable.
SPECIAL FIT is for girls who are just too hard to fit - sometimes they are very thin and others are stocky. a SMALL charge covers all the adjustments that we need to make. You can choose these options by choosing, as you go to order, the pulldown menu for SPECIAL SIZING. We need the height, chest, waist and hips when you go to check out.
For PLUS SIZES we will send a Bodice in the mail which is made out of a muslin material. You will try on this pattern/muslin and get back to us with any further fit issues. Be sure to have a digital camera ready when it arrives. After the fit is finalized, we use our copy of the same muslin here and proceed to make your dress.

MEASURING & ORDERING FOR SPECIAL FITS & PLUS SIZE COMMUNION DRESSES:
When ordering for your plus size dress we HATE using the word 1/2. What that means to a child is " I am plus size" and we personally think it makes a kid frustrated and unhappy.
SO instead, we want you to take the height of your daughter THEN that indicates the FIRST size on the pull down menus. IF her chest is under 33 1/2 she is in the BODICE FIT sizing. So for instance, say she is 51" tall and has a chest of 31. SO for the first SiZE menu, choose the size 7 (don't freak out) then for the second size menu choose the 14-BF for 14 bodice fit.
Likewise, if her chest is 35 and her waist is 36.5 - therefore, she is a size 7 (first menu) Plus 1 --- then we send a bodice in the mail to you. Be sure that you send her measurements with the chest and waist as well as the height.

"Dear Pegeen Staff: It's magic in a box. You sent the bodice pattern, i tried it on, and made the changes to you via pictures and just two weeks later - MAGIC IN A BOX! My daughter's Plus Size first communion dress fit her perfectly."
Because we strive not to be too "word-y" on our website we think we may not have made this clear enough:
Every flower girl dress we make can be done as a special fit or plus size flower girl dress. Perhaps there are one or two styles that we say Junior Bridesmaids Size only and are not available in Plus Size but all the rest are. Special Fit dresses are for children who are thin and Plus Sizing is for girls who are fuller. Our Plus Size flower girl dresses and Plus Size Junior Bridesmaids dresses go to a 41 or 42" chest. Special Fits can also be done on a child who is short but full. We combine sizes and patterns for you and are good at what we do! See more info below, left.
Put this information on the checkout page where you have to put your Address in the SPECIAL MESSAGE or COMMENTS section.
When ordering multiple dresses, please put in your comments something like "this is the measurements for the size 8 special fit".
INSTRUCTIONS FOR ORDERING: When you place your order for your Plus Size flower girl dress or your Plus Size Junior bridesmaid dress, there are two pull downs we want you to choose. For the first menu where it says choose size, pull the top menu for her height. For the BODICE FIT menu choose the one that best fits the child's chest OR choose the PLUS SIZE menu for chest sizes 34" and over.
