My first purchase from Etsy has been one of the best experiences I have had online - comunications clear & to the point - item description exact - item sent from US to Australia with reasonable postage & well packaged - Special thanks to Julia from Hemlockvintage for all your help.

This item was not as described. It was not in "good" condition. The sleeves were shortened and resewn very badly by an amateur. Oddly enough, the seller attempted to convince us that this was not the case by directing us to a video of a similar Jean Muir dress that had the correct sleeves! This is the only unprofessional clueless seller I've dealt with on Etsy.
online vintage clothing boutique established in 1999
Hemlock Vintage is an exclusively online vintage clothing boutique established in December of 1999 by me, Julia, in a suburb of Washington, DC. I sought out to create a unique online vintage clothing boutique offering a well curated and high quality inventory, professional photography, no-nonsense descriptions of the clothing and an attractive, easy to navigate website. Our selection ranges from hard to find designer items to hip urban vintage.
I started the shop selling my own collection and I have been collecting vintage clothing since I was a toddler. My dad regularly let me run loose in thrift stores, buy whatever I wanted, helping to develop my unique sense of style.
I've been selling vintage and handmade items online for many many years.

Additional policies and FAQs
Vintage clothing is used clothing and may have basic wear. Any notable flaws will be listed in the condition report. Our clothing is thoroughly checked inside and out for issues and cleaned/repaired. In other words, our items are not sold in "as found" or "as-is" condition. Some items are not cleaned due to age or delicate fabrics and we leave this decision of cleaning up to the buyer.
Typically the outside measurements of the item laid flat, with the exception of an interior bust and waist measurement for items with linings or constructed of thick fabric.
In some cases, clothing has to be pinned to show the fit. Additional crinolines may be used to show the fullness of a skirt (this is typically noted in the description).
