Vintage clothing doesn't fit like modern clothing, which is cut with a looser shape to fit more sizes. The construction techniques used in the past decades are very different from today's techniques. Vintage clothing is cut much closer to the body, and the fabrics may have less give. You should allow enough in the measurements to move comfortably while wearing your vintage garments. You should always wear vintage with care, and take the age of the garment into consideration.
Here is a link to the standard size chart that we reference: https://shop.alz.org/App_Themes/ALZ_Public_Responsive/docs/SizeChart.pdf
