Very nice. I will have to have the shoulders altered a bit. The neckline is much lower than I thought. Otherwise, very nice dress.

Additional policies

All items are Vintage/Estate/Used/Antique and sold AS IS - that means, you can expect some wear and/or aging. We attempt to note all flaws but we begin with the basic assumption that a garment more than 20 years old cannot be in perfect condition. All clothing is sold in its current state - meaning garments may have been altered, shortened or changed from their original form. Please use the measurements we provide to determine sizing and if something looks strange to you, convo us before purchase with questions. We are happy to answer questions any time.

Vintage according to Etsy is 20 years or older. Antique is typically considered 100 years or older. We attempt to date our items within a 10 year period. If we don't know the actual date an item was made, we base our timeline on style, materials, and manufacturer. Since most of the items we sell are related to fashion, the dates given are for general knowledge only. Mistakes do happen, so please be an informed consumer and contact us if you have any questions.

Our items will ship in good clean condition. This means, all items that can be machine or hand washed have been. Dry cleaning is handled on a case by case basis. Some garments require it, others come to us in clean condition with the dry cleaning tags attached. We only dry clean those that we feel need to be cleaned. We do not own a retail shop or do shows, so once an item has been photographed and listed it is set aside for sale. Please be aware that when you buy vintage clothing extra care may be required when it comes to cleaning. We attempt to avoid selling items that smell musty or of smoke. However, if we decide to put up for sale a item in such condition (usually its a highly desirable or collectible item) we will note the odor in our listing, We do not polish handbags, shoes, and jewelry.

Some wool garments are stored with lavender and may require airing prior to wear.

Vintage fabric tends not to give and can be fragile, so please allow a few inches for wiggle room. Colors vary according to computer monitors. We note if the garment has been pinned on the model or form.

All measurements are provided in inches. For your convenience here is a link to an easy conversion calculator: http://www.calculator.net/conversion-calculator.htm

PRIVACY POLICY: We hold your privacy in high esteem and will not share your address or email with any third party.

FAQs

Measurements are provided in inches and all measurements are approximate. Clothing is measured on a flat surface with a flexible dressmakers tape and measurements for chest, waist, hips should be doubled. We also provide the dress form measurement as a basis for seeing how the garment fits.

Length - Shoulder to hem
Length waist - Shoulder to defined waist
Bust/chest - Underarm to underarm (need to double)
Waist - Width at natural waist (need to double)
Hips - 5-6" below natural waist (need to double)
Sleeve length - Shoulder seam to bottom of sleeve
Back - Shoulder seam to shoulder seam
Halter Back - Under arm to under arm
Using a flexible dressmaker tape:

Insole: place tip of tape measure at toe, follow the footbed to the heel (interior)
Sole: toe to edge of heel (exterior)
Ball: 3" from tip of toe, measure width of sole (exterior)
Heel: measure the heel only (exterior)
We rarely describe an item as being in "mint" or "excellent" condition. Our belief is that a garment 20-100 years old probably has a flaw or two we did not catch. Most of the Items we sell are in "good" to "very good" condition, meaning there is light wear suitable for the garment's age, but has no holes, tears, rips, or stains unless noted. We avoid selling items in poor condition unless there is something really unique about the garment or it is being sold as "distressed" for fashion or for re-use.
When converting vintage to modern sizing we reference a measurement guide from J.Crew. All measurements are in inches.

XXS/00 Bust 31.5 Waist 24 Hip 34
XS /0 32.5 25 35
XS/2 33.5 26 36
S/4 34.5 27 37
S/6 35.5 28 38
M/8 36.5 29 39
M/10 37.5 30 40

Yes!! We are currently converting our items to the new Etsy shipping calculator which should give you a more accurate shipping rate on one item. However we are a bit uncertain how a second item is factored into the shipping costs under the calculator. Since we ship by weight, any overages will be refunded via the method you paid.
