At Clergy Image, we believe you deserve professional, stylish, and comfortable clergy wear at an affordable price. And we understand women come in all shapes and sizes. So we work from your measurements to ensure the best fit possible. Our unique color-based sizing system is designed to eliminate the pre-conceived notions and stigma attached to traditional sizing. Best of all, we put your collar size on your garment!
A garment you create! Choose the collar style, sleeve length, fabric, color and more. With Shirts and Dresses in a variety of styles, colors and sizes, we have something to meet everyone's needs. In fact, our basic shirt comes in nearly 3000 variations!
Our garments are cut and sewn in and near our Northern California shop as you order them. This means a delay between order and shipping. We do offer Rush services when needed. We hope our unique approach is worth the wait!
Expect 12 - 14 weeks from order to shipping. RUSH options are available.

We work from measurements to help determine your correct sizing and be able to make minor adjustments for a better fit. When you set up your account, please check "Measurements are listed below". You will need to provide the following measurements: height, bust, waist, hips, side seam and collar or neck size.
When you order, you will be asked to choose a size. Don't worry - we will adjust the size if necessary.
There are two changes to our Wish List program. First, it's now called Gift Registry. Second, and most exciting, is that you can now create and manage your own list! Simply design the garments you want and click Add to Registry instead of Add to Cart.

Cathie with her daughter, Rev Megan Anderson, the inspiration for Clergy Image
Hi! I'm Cathie Anderson. I’ve been sewing, designing and tailoring for over 40 years. I launched Clergy Image in 2012 when my daughter Megan was a third year student at Yale Divinity School. Frustrated trying to find professional and well-fitting clergy shirts, Megan encouraged me to start creating women's clergy apparel.
I spent a year interviewing clergywomen before creating two designs, a stretch Rayon/Spandex blend pullover and a Maternity style shirt - both with a choice of sleeve lengths. We now offer 4 styles of Tops and 5 styles of dresses in a variety of colors and fabrics. Plus you can choose Round, Tab or our exclusive Attached Collar. Our customers are still my source of inspiration.
I look forward to working with you!
