All items at Box of Hollyhocks are one-of-a-kind vintage. Custom and personalized orders are not available.
My mannequin is a size medium with a 38 inch bust.
When measuring garments, bust is measured armpit to armpit, then doubled. All other measurements are measured flat, seam to seam.
Tagged vintage sizes run small compared to modern sizing.
Vintage footwear also runs small compared to modern sizing. The "insole" measurement is the approximate length of the shoe's interior footbed. This measurement should be the approximate length of your foot.
For leather, lightly spot clean soiled areas with a damp cloth asap. For a care product I recommend Golden Mink Oil. It preserves, waterproofs and conditions. I generally vier away from leather soaps and cleaners.
Furs are low maintenance but do require year-around care. Furs shouldn't be worn in the rain, snow is okay so long as it's doesn't make the garment wet. When not in season, furs should be stored in an airtight bag. If your fur needs cleaning, it's best to take them to a specialist.
Wool sweaters can be hand washed and air dried. Avoid washing machines and dryers.
Rugs, textiles and embroidery should be professionally cleaned. Hand washing/soaking these items may cause colors to bleed/run.
