Sizing

Measuring and sizing vintage items. Because vintage clothing in some cases is handmade and that generally sizes do not conform to modern sizing from the high street multiple clothing chains ,comparing the actual measurements of the garment and comparing to you own +/or one of your own garments that fits you well is advisable. Where we use a size category it is to give a general indication.

Sleeves: From shoulder seam to the end of the cuff. Sleeve width: Seam to seam at the biceps x 2 Length: From shoulder to hem. Waist: Seam to seam x 2. Hips: From the widest point across 7 inches below the waistline x 2. In-step/In-seam: From crotch to bottom of the hem.
