- The enquiries have started to come in for Communion Dresses and eventhough we have our communion dresses ordered since March they will not start arriving in until October at the earliest. There are so many beautiful designs this season and each week I will introduce you to the new styles we are expecting for this coming season. This first one pictured above is from the Joan Calabrese Collection and is indeed a very beautiful dress. This style is a sleeveless satin, organza, tulle and lace tea-length A-line dress with bateau neckline. It has a scalloped lace overlay peplum bodice featuring a ruched organza waistband with a three-dimensional flower The back of the bodice has covered buttons, full double layer organza overlay skirt with horsehair hem, perfect for a First Holy Communion dress.
