Please do not be scared off by the original sizing labels. Measurements have changed considerably over the years, so do expect to typically size up at least one, often two sizes from the original labels.
I will always provide measurements as well as a rough indication of UK size I believe it'll be best for.
I tend to measure most items laid flat and then simply doubled. It's worth doing the same with your favourite items, so you have an idea of your own measurements as I do not accept returns for items which do not fit.
Bust - Measured pit - pit
Waist - Narrowest point
Hips - Widest point
Skirt length - Waist - hem
Trousers/Shorts - I'll give both Inside leg and waist - hem
Length - Top of shoulders - bottom hem
I will always try to indicate if there is any stretch or give to the fabric.
If in doubt, please feel free to contact me.
