Additional policies and FAQs
All vintage finds have been spot cleaned. In order to keep costs reasonable, I do not dry clean but recommend it after purchase. I do my best to remove stains as well as repair work, handling each garment with care.

Excellent: Worn either once or twice only or extremely well-cared for and therefore has little or no signs of wear.
Very Good: Worn with minimal notable flaws.
Good: Possibly numerous noted flaws, needs repair.
Poor: Not fit for wear, design, display or study piece.

Measurements are taken laying flat and are doubled where applicable (bust & waist, for example). The "fits like" size is just an estimate, and vintage sizes are different than modern sizes. Therefore please use measurements to ensure proper fit.

All items are measured with the item laying flat, and it would be most beneficial for you to measure your own personal garment this way, and compare.
bust/chest - armpit to armpit x2
waist - from smallest points x2
hip - from widest points x2
sleeve - from armpit to hem
length - from shoulder to hem
shoulder - from seam to seam
