Thank you for stopping by Paper Doll Vintage. A store that consists primarily of vintage and retro dresses. I have been collecting dresses for quite a few years now and am now in the business of spreading the already growing word of vintage.
My goal is to provide you with a wonderful and care free shopping experience.

My cutter section is a section of poor to fair condition dresses that can be used for your own creations or love to bring old dresses back to life!


All garments are laid flat on a solid surface and measured as followed:

BUST: underarm to underarm, then doubled

WAIST: 6-8" below the armpit, then doubled
SKIRT AND PANT WAIST: measured across the waist band and doubled

SHOULDER: shoulder seam to shoulder seam (across the back)

LENGTH: neckline to hem

SLEEVE LENGTH: shoulder seam to end of cuff

*Some larger garments will be pinned back on the dressform.*

It is a good idea to measure one of your own dressess that fits you properly and compare to my measuring chart.
Remember vintage fits smaller than a dress that was made today.
I will not be following the size on the tag. Remember I will be using the size from my measurements.

If there are any questions on the fit that pertain to your body type, please feel free to contact me.

Please also take note that I will point out major flaws but will not always point out small flaws such as pinpoint sized spots or pinpoint sized holes.

Accepted payment methods

  • Money Order
Returns and exchanges
All sales are final unless I have grossly misinterpreted the condition of the garment.

Please feel free to contact me with questions on sizing or you just want a re-measure on a garment for extra pre-caution.

Please keep in mind you are wearing vintage and if it is not deadstock it will be mildly worn.

I also try to catch any flaws on my garments but if I have missed one please let me know and we can rectify the mistake. I will point out major flaws but will not always point out small flaws such as pinpoint sized spots or pinpoint sized holes.

If you are not happy please contact me. I am more than willing to try and resolve any conflict that has occured.

There will be a 15% restocking fee.

You will also be responsible for shipping fees as well on returned items.

Please remember to read the measurements and descriptions carefully of the item.

My goal is for you to have a flawless shopping experience!

Contact me with any questions you may have of the garment you are looking at.
I accept paypal and money orders.

Prompt payment is expected upon checkout unless contacted. I will be more than happy to hold and item if contacted right away after or before purchase.

Money orders will delay your shipment until I recieve payment.

I will only accept money orders from Canada and the United States.

U.S customers must remember to make the money order an international money order.

If your paypal and etsy addresses are different I will contact you right away. If no response is heard after several attempts on my part your garment will be shipped to the etsy address.

If something comes up, please contact me and we can work something out. We will then avoid negative feedback from both parties.
I ship garments within 3 days of payment.

I ship through Canada Post unless stated otherwise from buyer.

I ship Canada Post Air internationaly. It is fully insured and will arrive within 7-16 business days. Unfortunatley there is no tracking number. If you would like a tracking number please contact me for a shipping quote as the price difference is quite substantial.

Shipping costs will be reduced for multiple items.

Shipping coverage will be included.

I do keep all shipping reciepts on file.

*If you do live in the Vancouver B.C, please feel free to contact me if you wish to avoid shipping costs. We can work out a pick up agreement.*

We will reimburse you of course if shipping is less than stated.
