Alteration Description (please describe exactly what you want done)

For many, the cape dress defines what a modest dress should be.  Charity's Cape Dress comes in a classic Mennonite style and has a full cape in front and back, a gentle elastic waist and invisible back zipper.  We find this pattern to fit beautifully and drape quite nicely.  The overall finished look is quite tailored.  The skirt is gently gathered at the waist and very full at the hem.  There are no extra bells and whistles on this dress.  Short sleeves at about elbow length are standard but you may choose 3/4 or long sleeves. This dress is a simple, practical design and reflects the daily dress of many women from conservative churches. 

For those who desire a simple back zipper dress with an elastic waist, we can also make this dress without a cape.  Please see the options above.

Sizing for this dress is based on your bust and waist size.  In order for this dress to fit properly, please measure carefully and choose the closest size to your measurements.  Use the larger size if between sizes.  If the numbers don't quite line up and you'd like some help before ordering, please contact us and we will help you choose the best size or be able to tell you if this dress may not be the right style for you.  Because of the width of the skirt, we encourage you to use one of our Tropical Breeze fabrics.  If you'd like to use one of the regular weight cottons that will work out just fine but be aware that the skirt will not quite as wide as the pattern calls for at the hem.  Approximate finished length from top of shoulder to hem is 51".  

The size chart below will be helpful for general reference, but your measurements are the best way to choose size on this dress.
