I purchased this to go over the dress I ordered for my daughter's First Holy Communion (Super Elegant Flower Clip Dress White, item CD-1165_wh). It looks like it was made to go with the dress. My daughter normally wears a size 8. Since she has had difficulty with boleros being too tight in the bicep area I ordered this in a size 10. It fits perfectly!! Glad I went up a size. Very happy!
