About StarletVintage

Sales 4,338
On Etsy since 2008

Starlet Vintage brings you quality, hand selected vintage, sourced from Canada's west coast.

At Starlet Vintage we value and love the ethics of wearing vintage with it's value-added, often hand made quality, built-in history, and the beautiful potential for one-of-kind personal expression. THE best possible antidote to impossibly cheap garments ( and the not so cheap ) churned out at the cost of the environment.
We hope you enjoy perusing the 'racks' ! Please contact us with any questions you might have, we'd love to hear from you ♥
Every package shipped from our studio will come to you gift wrapped, professionally and safely packaged, include care instructions, and a coupon code for 15% off your next purchase at Starlet Vintage

Thanks so much for stopping by ! ♥

If your package wouldn't fit in your mail slot or box, or no one was home at time of delivery, it may have gone to your local post office for pickup.

Additional policies and FAQs

BUST: measure over the fullest part of your bust

UNDERBUST: measure around the fullest part of your ribcage, about midway between your bust and waist.

WAIST: measure around the smallest point of your waist where it naturally curves in. 

HIP: measure the hip at the fullest point

It's important to remember that your garment won't be very comfortable, if it's measurements are your exact body measurements, (unless it's stretchy.)
The extra fabric required for comfort is called ease, and ideally you'll want the following amount for a close fitting vintage garment for comfortable fit:

BUST: 1 1/2 "
HIP: 2"

50s and early 60s dresses are often cut to accommodate a girdled waist, if you plan to belt your dress and don't mind a tight waist fit, a zero or negative ease might be appropriate.
Vintage garments were often custom tailored with generous seam allowances to allow for taking seams in or out and it is often possible to have a vintage garment altered to fit you if your measurements are off by just a bit. I am happy to answer any questions about available seam allowances, darts, and hem allowances before you purchase.

Please measure yourself carefully, and compare the item to the measurements of something you already own that has a similar cut and fabric and fits you well, as I don't accept returns for items that don't fit.


The LENGTH measurement I give for shoes is always the measurement of the INSIDE sole of the shoe from tip of toe to very back of heel unless otherwise specified.
WIDTH refers to the widest INSIDE measurement at the ball of the foot

see this chart for conversions:


All hats are measured from the inside, around the hat band if there is one.
Try to measure around your own head where the hat depicted in shop sits on the mannequin's head to see if the hat will fit you in the same way.

21" = XS, or Size 6 5/8
21.5" to 21 3/4" = S, or Size 6 3/4 to 6 7/8
22" to 22 1/2" = M, or Size 7 to 7 1/8
22 3/4" to 23" = L, or Size 7 1/4 to 7 3/8
23 1/2" to 24" = XL, or Size 7 1/2 to 7 5/8

If you still have have questions about whether or not that one of a kind vintage piece will fit you, please contact me !
