About MagdaleneClergyDress

Sales 328
On Etsy since 2020

Comfort and confidence in ministry should not be luxury items.

One day, I decided I had enough. Enough of Saturday night stress over my hemline instead of my sermon. Enough of combing thrift stores for preaching clothes I could actually afford. Enough of showing up to God's house as a dress-loving girl stuffed in starched black slacks.

So I founded Magdalene Clergy Dresses. Like me, this shop is a work in progress. And like us all, these dresses don't apologize for existing. They show the world just who God created us to be: feminine and fearless.

Frequently asked questions
How do I make sure my dress is right for me?

Magdalene clothing is size-inclusive. Dresses are not cut from standard sizes but carefully customized based on the exact measurements clients give.

If you are not 100% thrilled with the fit of your garment, we accept returns and exchanges. Please see shop policies for details.

Can't decide between Riverside and Vespers? We have found that Riverside flatters ALL body types. If you prefer waist definition, however, Riverside is not for you. Vespers is most flattering on women with at least a 4" difference between their bust and waist measurement.

Can't decide on a length? We have found that the most flattering dress length on most women touches the top of the knee. But choose your own length: we make dresses up to 50" at no extra charge!

The estimated shipping time is too long. Can I rush an order?

At this time, I cannot rush orders. This is a one-woman shop and I adjust ship times on Etsy based on the length of my queue.

What if I don't know my measurements?

I reserve the right to cancel any orders in which clients have omitted one or more required measurements. All garments are custom-made, and each requested measurement is necessary. I will ask for the missing measurements, and if I don't hear back within a week of my asking, I will cancel the order. Clients whose orders are canceled are always welcome to place their orders again, with full measurements.

Directions for how to get measurements are widely available online. I recommend getting a friend's help to make sure your measurements are accurate. If you have any questions about measurements before placing an order, send me a message! I'm happy to talk through any questions you have.

What is the fiber content of your clothes?

Classic Dresses and the "Elizabeth" shirt are made with an 85% viscose/15% linen blend. For non-Classic colors and styles, check the individual listing for fiber content.

Magdalene doesn't offer what I need. Can I place a custom order?

I'm happy to discuss custom orders. Just send me a message!

However, because I am a one-woman shop, my capacity for custom orders is very limited. If you need something I cannot provide, I highly recommend Humble Hearts Clergy ( and Clergy Image (

Do you sell detachable tab pieces for tab collar shirts and dresses?

Yes! If you order a tab collar shirt or dress, you will see an option to add on a tab piece for an extra cost. However, we do not sell those pieces on their own. All our tabs are sourced from Humble Hearts Clergy Apparel (, and you can purchase tabs alone by going directly to their site.

Do you make albs?
