Measuring Yourself:

Bust: Measure all the way around the largest part of your bust. Depending on your bra size, this number might correspond to 34, 36, etc. or it might be different.

Natural Waist: Measure all the way around the smallest part of your torso. It's usually about an inch or two above your bellybutton.

If you have any other special requests (you're real tall or a lil' shorter) please just send me a message!

If you'd like to just order a size, this is how I break it down:
Bust: 33"
Waist: 26"
Length: 34"

Bust: 35"
Waist: 28"
Length: 34"

Bust: 37"
Waist: 30"
Length: 35"

Bust: 39"
Waist: 32"
Length: 35"

I can add side pockets to almost any dress for an extra $10!

Caring for your Rusty Cuts Dress:
I recommend hand washing all handmade items from my shop. I don't have a serger, so seams that aren't at an edge of a dress are usually not finished (like a 1950's or 1960's dress). If it must be put into a machine, wash on cold and hang dry.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
CALI pays 8.75% Sales Tax. Sorry ladies!
For U.S. shipping, I ship Priority Mail, with Delivery Confirmation. If you want it shipped express, just send me a message.

For International Shipping, I ship first class. This does NOT include a tracking number. If you want it to be Registered, it will be an extra $12. Send me a message and I can update the listing for you. I unfortunately cannot be responsible for mail getting lost outside of the U.S. unless it is tracked.
Refunds and Exchanges
I mention all damages in the description, so unless something is grossly misrepresented, all sales are final. Message me if you have an issue. Please check measurements and condition of items before purchase. If you are ordering a custom dress, please follow my measurement guide to ensure an accurate fit. I use primarily vintage fabrics in my dresses, so you should expect things to show wear. It's part of the character!
