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.

Bust - Measured by doubling the width from armpit to armpit across the front of the garment.

Waist - Measured by doubling the width from one side of the waistband to the other.

Sleeve - Measured from the shoulder to the cuff. Shoulder - Measured from shoulder seam to shoulder seam.

Length - Measured from the collar or top mid of the shoulder to the garment's hem.
