     COSTUMES

 Returning families:
Please check to make sure your daughter’s dress still fits. She should try it on and it should still be an inch or so off the floor. If it is higher than that, please re-hem so it falls correctly. Please let me know that your daughter’s dress still fits! We now have an inventory of dresses available to borrow in most sizes, so if your daughter has outgrown her dress, let us know and we’ll arrange a “fitting” to see if she can use something from the “dress closet”.

New families:
We will be ordering dresses for all new members of the choir, unless there is one available to borrow that fits your daughter from our dress closet inventory. In order to make this happen, we will need all new members to be measured at home following the attached measuring directions. Each family should then send me either the measurement numbers or the size your daughter needs according to the size chart on the attachment.
PLEASE NOTE that the sizes for the dresses may not coincide with what you might normally buy at the store. The company we order from has their own sizing, so actually measuring your daughter is important!

Also, there are two size charts; one is for children’s sizes and one is for adult sizes. If your daughter is in 2nd –  5th grade, the children’s sizing chart is probably what you will need. If she is in 6th – 8th grade, the adult sizing chart will be more helpful.  Kristin Collins will send the size chart as an email attachment.
The chart is a bit tricky to read, so remember you can just send Kristin the measurements
and she can figure it out with the company if that is easier!

Please let us know that either:

  • your current dress still fits,
  • or your daughter’s measurements or size no later than Tuesday, September 20.

Payment for new dresses can be turned in at rehearsal. Checks should be made out to Bainbridge Chorale for $70.

The dresses take 4-5 weeks to arrive and we want them in time for hemming (all new dresses will need to be hemmed) to happen before the  recital and concerts, so please measure soon.
