Carol's Granddaughter Abbey

Carol’s Granddaughter Abbey

I have several Blue Fish Stories and all of them are favorites. I have met and enjoyed Blue Fish friends from all over the country. And most of them have remained with me throughout this journey call life. I met Paula from North Carolina many years ago. She formerly lived in Ithaca NY and we shared a love of artsy clothing and even make up. When Katrina struck New Orleans, my daughter and her family lost everything. We had major damage at our home there as well. Paula who cared so much for us, contacted Jennifer Barclay and told her what was happening.  Jennifer in turn contacted me for sizes and shipped them a large box of new clean clothing for both of them. They had evacuated to Boston and it was sooo cold.

Here is a photo of my sweet refugee granddaughter Abigail in her Blue Fish Dress. Can you say heart warming? Kay, our friendly Blue Fish quilter sent both Cori & Abbey new warm quilts. Can you say heart warming again? I will never forget the kindness of my Blue Fish friends during that terrible ordeal, that haunts us still. It just goes to show that is does take a village.

Size Guide


Blue Fish sizing is uniquely ours. We have developed this system to fit many body types, shapes, & heights comfortably. Here is the Blue Fish size chart and its traditional size equivalent:

00 – only available in select styles. fits up to size 6

0 – fits up to size 10

1 – fits ups to size 16

2 – fits up to size 22

3 – only available in our studio tees & some tunics. fits up to size 26

O/S – one size that fits most customers

Remember that each style is unique & has different measurements--please check the size chart on your item of interest for exact measurements! One style may fit you differently than other styles you have worn before and we strongly recommend checking the measurements before making your purchase.


You might wear a combination of sizes depending on your body shape and how you prefer the drape of your clothing. For instance, you might wear a size 0 pants and a size 1 top. If you prefer looser, more flowy clothing, size up--if you prefer more fitted pieces, choose those closer to your actual measurements. We provide measurements for each style so you can find the best fit for the way you like to wear your Blue Fish.  

If you ever have questions about the fit of our clothing, just give us a call! We will help you find the specific styles that will work best for you. Call us at 800.395.4566 M-F from 9-5 CST to speak to our personal shoppers. You can also email us with any questions at
