Size Guide

We take pride in providing accurate measurements with an approximation of modern UK with an International equivalent size chart below sizing to help you when choosing  your purchase and  will fit properly  as often vintage sizes differ significantly from modern sizes. 

It is also very helpful if you are aware of your own particular dimensions. If you're not sure, you may easily approximate them by measuring an item of clothes from your own wardrobe that fits well and is laid flat.

Measure the waist flat across  and for the bust from pit to pit in inches and then double it  Length is measured from middle of the shoulder to the end of the garment. 

We measure all our items flat and use the guide below
