Carolyn's Comments:
I love so many different things about this style! The fabric is of great quality and has a good stretch. The fit is excellent, the embroidery is just perfect and the contrasting buttons really set it off. My most favourite feature is the turn-ups on the sleeves giving it a classic vintage-look. The XS size fits me perfectly. My measurements are bust 92cms (12DD Bra), 69cm waist and 93cm hips. 

Measurements are of the actual garment laid flat and all measurements are approximate.
We recommend using the waist measurement as your main guide. The fabric has a slight stretch so please consider sizing down if you are in-between sizes.

One of the most frequently asked questions we are asked is: "Is your clothing standard sizing?"

The answer is no. Unfortunately there is no standard sizing for clothing as measurements are not uniformed across different brands and manufacturers. Sizing can also differ between styles of the same label!  

We provide the actual garment measurements (unless noted) for each individual item in our store. We strongly recommend using these measurements to help determine your size.

Taking Your Measurements

If possible, have someone else measure you to obtain the most accurate measurements.   

Bust - Measure around your back across the fullest part of your bust and keep your arms at your side with the tape straight, parallel to the floor. 

Natural Waist - Measure your natural waist line. This is your body's thinnest point just above your belly button and below your ribs. You can lean to the side to locate where your body naturally folds.

Hips - Measure the fullest part of your hips which is usually your body’s widest part around the bottom. Please keep your feet together to ensure an accurate measurement.
