Alteration Description (please describe exactly what you want done)

A traditional and timeless tea length girls dress with short or long cuffed sleeves, an empire waist and a buttoned back bodice.  It is dressed up with a small lace collar and is popular for sister dresses and beautiful for special occasions.  If you'd like this dress for everyday wear, we can substitute a peter pan collar for the lace collar in the same fabric as the dress.  Skirts are classically made full but older girls might prefer an A-line skirt with fewer gathers at the waist.  You may choose from any of our fabrics.

If you choose a lace collar, be aware that they need a bit of extra care.  We like to keep lace collars out of the dryer simply because it is too easy for something to get caught on them.  Hang to dry and do not iron the lace collar.  Just lay it flat against the dress and allow it to dry as is. 

This is a tea length dress and the finished lengths are about 1" shorter than the lengths shown in the size chart below.  Our garments tend to fit generously.  If you have a child who does not fit into a size fairly close to her age, please use the contact form at the top of the page to drop us a note so that we can help you with sizing.
