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!

New families:
We will be ordering dresses for all new members of the choir. 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 3rd, 4th or 5th grade, the children’s sizing chart is probably what you will need. If she is in 6th-10th 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 either that:

  • your current dress still fits,
  • or your daughter’s measurements or size no later than January 31.

Payment for new dresses can be turned in at rehearsal. Checks should be made out to Bainbridge Chorale for $68.

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.
