Frequently Asked Questions

Sizing details

All our clothing is sold according to the actual measurements of the clothes, and our sizings are estimates of modern UK sizes and for your convenience only. Vintage size labels can be very misleading - a vintage dress from the 1960s labelled a UK size 18 is likely to have a bust measurement of only 38-40". To avoid disappointment we advise you to check our measurements against those of a similar garment which fits you well, before you make a purchase.

Custom and personalised orders

We will refund excess postal costs via Etsy for multiple purchases by non-UK customers after dispatch. Please contact me for more information.
