Returns & exchanges
✩ SELECT CAREFULLY AS ALL SALES ARE CONSIDERED FINAL ✩ Though all sales are considered final returns are reviewed on a case by case basis, primarily only if there was a significant error in the listing. Shipping charges are non-refundable. Because great care is taken to provide accurate measurements on each garment, returns due to poor fit are not accepted. All sales are sold as-is. If you're not 100% satisfied with your purchase, please contact me so we can work out a solution. In the event of a return: you must contact us within a week of receiving item, item must be returned in condition it was received and buyer pays return shipping costs. Buyer will be refunded for the purchase price only, after the item has been returned.
To ensure your item is well suited for you, please read the vintage sizing information below & double-check and compare the listing size and your own size to get the best fit. If you are unsure and have a question about the size or appearance of an item, contact me and we will gladly send you more pictures or take additional measurements.
✩ SIZING INFORMATION ✩ Vintage clothing fits differently than modern clothing. Vintage clothing is cut much closer to the body than you may be used to. For this reason, it is important that you allow enough wearing ease to move comfortably while wearing your vintage garment.
✩ MEASURING YOURSELF ✩ Use a dressmaker’s tape measure. Measure yourself over the undergarments you plan to wear.
BUST: measure over the fullest part of your bust while wearing a bra.
WAIST: measure around the smallest point of your waist where it naturally curves in.
HIP: measure around the fullest part of your hips. This is usually about 8"-9" below your waist.
SHOULDER TO WAIST: Measure from the top of your shoulder, where a normal shoulder seam would lie, down the front, following the curve of your bust.
LENGTH: measure from the top of your shoulder, where a normal shoulder seam would lie, down the front, to the point you want the garment to end at the hem.
If you have any other questions or concerns, please send a message before purchasing.
