I've never received my item.

Absolutely love it- gorgeous and fits like a dream! USPS bungled their two-day delivery, but that's not the seller's fault.

Additional policies and FAQs
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.
♦ ♦ ♦ This is how our measurements of our garments are taken ♦ ♦ ♦
All items are measured in inches, laying flat.
Bust - armpit to armpit x2
Waist - from smallest points x2
Hip - from widest points x2
Sleeve Top- from top of sleeve seam to hem
Sleeve Underarm- from armpit to hem
Length - from shoulder to hem
Shoulder - from seam to seam
♦ ♦ ♦ ♦ ♦ ♦ MEASURING YOURSELF ♦ ♦ ♦ ♦ ♦ ♦
Watch this video to learn how to take your body measurements for vintage clothing:
♦ ♦ ♦ Use a dressmaker’s tape measure, which you can get at your local fabric store.
♦ ♦ ♦ Measure yourself over undergarments you plan to wear & not over clothing.
♦ BUST: measure over the fullest part of your bust while wearing a bra.
♦ UNDERBUST: measure around the fullest part of ribcage, about midway between 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.
