Most items are given a size in the listing, but this is just an estimate. Please review measurements for a better idea of how the item will fit you. Items are measured flat and then doubled. Any stretch will be noted. Compare the item's measurements to your own measurements or the measurements of a garment that fits you well. Please allow a bit of room for ease of movement and a comfortable fit.

Feel free to send an Etsy convo if you need more detailed measurements or have a specific fit question.
Most items have been hand-washed and line dried before listing, and should continue to be cleaned in this way for best results. Some items (such as certain 80s/90s vintage) may be machine washable, but feel free to send me a convo if you are unsure. Other items are best dry cleaned. If an item has been or needs dry cleaned, this will be noted in the listing.
