Choosing a First Communion Dress for your Little Girl

A beautiful communion dress
A first communion dress is a very important garment in a girl’s life. The occasion it’s meant for is very special and what she wears should mirror that feeling. Just as no two little girls are alike, 1st communion dresses also vary greatly. There’s a style out there no matter what you’re looking for!

There are three basic choices on length – floor length, tea length or knee length. Generally first communion dresses are tea or floor length, because these styles are more formal and better suit the occasion. Then you need to consider sleeves. You can go sleeveless, short sleeved or long sleeved. The church might have restrictions on what types of sleeves are allowed, but if she really loves a sleeveless 1st communion dress you can always add a sweater or bolero jacket so that it’s appropriate for your guidelines.

Once you have chosen a silhouette, it’s time to decide on a fabric. Communion dresses come in a large array of different textiles and textures. At SophiasStyle.com you’ll find simple cotton gowns or more luxurious taffeta, organza and satin gowns. Cotton gowns are typically less expensive, but can lack the intricate details that will make her dress unique. Common extras include rhinestones, bows, sashes, ruching, sheering, pick-ups and more.
