About

A conservator of beauty

I am currently on a year-long road trip with my husband and children, taking time to breathe and be, to live simply, and to unearth antique and vintage pieces for the shop.

You can follow our journey at our website: www.4birdsvintage.com and on Instagram: 4birdsvintage for daily glimpses.

a thing of beauty is a joy forever...

beauty is found in unexpected places

Refunds and Exchanges
Please shop with care and ask questions, as all sales are final.

No returns are accepted unless an item has been misrepresented

Shipping charges are non-refundable.

Because great care is taken to provide accurate measurements on each garment, returns due to poor fit are not accepted.

If an item is deemed returnable after review, there will be a 15% restocking fee & shipping charges are non-refundable.

I work hard to describe and measure every item carefully, and listed with detailed condition evaluation, so that you may feel comfortable with your purchase.

To ensure your item is well suited for you, please read the vintage sizing information below & double-check and compare the listing size and your own size to get the best fit.

If you are unsure and have a question about the size or appearance of an item, contact me and I will gladly send you more pictures or take additional measurements.

SIZING INFORMATION
Vintage clothing fits differently than modern clothing, which is cut loosely to fit a wide variety of body shapes. Vintage clothing is cut much closer to the body than you may be used to. For this reason, it is important that you allow enough wearing ease to move comfortably while wearing your vintage garment. Vintage garments should always be worn with care and consideration of their age.

Vintage garments were often tailored to fit an individual woman and evidence of seams and darts being taken in or out is not uncommon. For this reason, it is often possible to have a vintage garment altered to fit you if your measurements are off by just a bit. I am happy to answer any questions about available seam allowances, darts, and hem allowances before you purchase.

MEASURING YOURSELF
Use a dressmaker’s tape measure, measure yourself over the undergarments you plan to wear & not over your clothing.

BUST: measure over the fullest part of your bust while wearing a bra.

UNDERBUST: measure around the fullest part of your ribcage, about midway between your bust and waist.

WAIST: measure around the smallest point of your waist where it naturally curves in.

HIP: measure around the fullest part of your hips. This is usually about 8"-9" below your waist.

SHOULDER TO WAIST: Measure from the top of your shoulder, where a normal shoulder seam would lie, down the front, following the curve of your bust.

LENGTH: measure from the top of your shoulder, where a normal shoulder seam would lie, down the front, to the point you want the garment to end at the hem.

SHOE SIZING: measure from toe to heel on both feet and see this chart for conversions:
