About

For Opal’s Sake!

Spake As A Child comes from the epitaph on the grave of Opal Whiteley, my daughter's namesake. Every sale I make here directly goes to taking care of my daughter.

    Well, it's official. The years of my youth of being taken to antique store after antique store with my parents definitely left its mark. Collector of many things, hoarder of many more, and lover of vintage clothes always.

HOW TO FIGURE YOUR SIZE

CLOTHING: I measure all garments while they are laying flat. These are the measurements of the clothes themselves, so you should account for ease of wear and getting on and off when you consider your measurements. You my want to measure a similar item in your closet that fits comfortably so get a better idea.

* BUST is measured armpit to armpit, then doubled
* WAIST is measured at the natural waistline, then doubled
* HIPS are measured across where the average hip falls (about 7 inches below waist), then doubled
* SKIRT LENGTH is measured from waistband to hem
* TOTAL LENGTH is measured shoulders to hem

SHOES: I have learned to never go by what is marked in a vintage shoe. I will give you an approximation of a modern day size, but you should ALWAYS go by the exact measurements listed. Width is especially important.
