I absolutely adore the dress - it's exactly as described. Simone was also incredibly helpful in dealing with USPS when the parcel went MIA for a week or so. Definitely would recommend!

Refunds and Exchanges

Though all sales are considered final, returns are reviewed on a case by case basis, and only if there was a significant error in the listing. 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. Returns are subject to a 15% restocking fee. Items from the 1920's and earlier are non-returnable due to their fragile nature.


Please notify us FIRST of your intent to return the item. All returns must be received within one week of your notice of intent to return. Items returned after this time may not be accepted. Items received after this 7 days will be processed as a store credit, not a cash refund.


Use a dressmaker’s tape measure, which you can get at your local fabric store.
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.
Additional policies and FAQs
Reserves/holds are available for 24 hours. If you need more than 24 hours please contact us. For reserves longer than 24 hours a non-refundable deposit is required. Please do not reserve an item if you are not 100% sure you will purchase it. ERSTWHILE STYLE also has the right to refuse a reserve request.

*All of the items at ERSTWHILE STYLE are vintage so there is some wear. They may not be 100% free of minor defects, as they have been loved already. Any imperfections are minor and are described to the best of my knowledge.

Layaway is offered on a case by case basis and most generally on higher priced items. A non-refundable deposit is required and payment is generally due in full in 30 days.
