Evelyn & Dot Vintage
My English grandmothers, Evelyn and Dot, were young mothers during WWII and quickly had to adopt the concept of "make do and mend". Even when the war ended, they continued to the live the thrifty lifestyle. It instilled in me not only the practical attitude of reduce, reuse and recycle, but it made me appreciate the value of belongings. I love that every piece has some amazing story attached to it, even if we don't know what it is. There is nothing like the joy of finding that special piece....whether it's a dress that is beautifully made or a meticulously stitched needlepoint that must have taken hours to complete. Lovers of vintage appreciate the uniqueness that comes with finding these special pieces and in my shop I share some of the wonderful finds I have acquired over time and world travels.

I include an invoice with each package that corresponds with the customs form stating the full purchase price of each order. Please be aware your country may charge additional customs duty and/or import taxes, but I am not responsible for any duty fees that may be imposed--these are the responsibility of the buyer.
I am also not responsible for any custom delays on international shipments or other delays beyond my control.
Please do not ask me to falsify customs claims--I will not declare items as "gift" as this is against U.S. law.
I ship to the address provided at checkout with Etsy, regardless of method of payment. If you wish for me to ship to a different address, please contact me BEFORE purchasing.
In some cases I may ship using recycled (but clean) shipping materials (boxes, for example) in order to keep down shipping costs. If you object to this, please contact me before purchase.
Please feel free to contact me with any shipping questions or concerns!
Refunds and Exchanges
I absolutely do not accept returns on items that do not fit, so please note the measurements carefully. All measurements given are taken while the garment is flat and then doubled where appropriate. Please check your own measurements carefully and measure an item of clothing that fits you well for comparison. Usually your measurements should be 1-2 inches larger than the garment in order to allow for comfort.
I will gladly email more pictures or provide additional measurements should you need them!
Additional policies and FAQs
All clothing items (unless they are too small) are modeled on my dress form, Edith. Her measurements are 35 inch bust, 25 inch waist and 37 inch hips. In some cases I may clip clothing to show how something should fit if the item is too large on Edith, but I will always mention this in the listing.
