Communion Dress Alterations

There are a lot of things that we can help you with. We can shorten the communion dress, take in or let out, remove sleeves or add sleeves to the dress.  We can add extra netting for creating a volume or remove lining to reduce the puffiness.

Two questions that gets asked quite frequently are:

1. Can communion dresses be taken out? 

Certainly. Most formal dresses have approximately 1″ seam allowance on each side of the dress. Therefore, the seams can be undone and sewn so that the dress can be let out and made a little bit bigger. However, dresses can only be let out a size or two. Anything larger than that is going to take 'more visible alterations' - adding a fabric panel. 

Our seamstress could also see about letting out the zipper allowance for a little extra space or add a zipper extender to the back of the communion dress.

2. Can you add sleeves to a Communion Dress?

YES! We have got you covered on all sides, from removable straps and detachable straps to beaded cap sleeves and puff sleeves.
