Vintage Clothing and Kimonos are not sized the same as modern manufactured clothing. Everything sold by ThisBlueBird will include actual garment measurements in inches. When choosing an item please refer to the measurements and compare them with a similar style garment you already own. Please note the measurements are actual garment measurements and you must leave 2 to 3 inches between your actual measurements and the garment for ease of movement.
The charts on this page are here to assist you in understanding how vintage clothing and kimonos are measured and where you should measure on your body.
Fabulous vintage 1920s day dress in pastel pink silk crepe. Sleeveless, v-neck, pleated shoulders, drop waist with a flared skirt. Not lined. In very good condition, there is one small hole below the waist and some surface smudges on the v-neck point and the skirt portion, these should all be remedied by a skilled tailor and a dry cleaning. See last photo.
The underarms are clean and this dress is structurally sound, and very wearable! It would make a wonderful spring wedding dress!
This is crepe, but with minimal stretch since there is a horizontal drop seam below the natural waist. Please pay close attention to Waist and Hip measurements as they are the most constrictive. This style is intended to fit very loosely and the hip measurement is very small.
Please refer to the measurements listed below, taken while laying flat and doubled where appropriate.
Bust - 38 inches (96.52 cm)
Waist across top drop seam - 32 inches (81.28 cm)
Hips across middle of the panel between the drop seam and the pointed skirt seams - 34 inches (86.36 cm)
Length - 39.5 inches (100.33 cm)

ABOUT VINTAGE CLOTHING SIZES
Vintage clothing sizes run smaller than modern clothing sizes and there is no industry standard sizing chart for modern women's clothing. When purchasing vintage clothes, it is important to know your own true body measurements and compare those to the garment measurements provided. Please take a moment to review this chart on how to take your own body measurements, so you can correctly determine if this item will fit you. Be sure to always leave several inches between your measurements and the garment measurement for proper fit and ease of movement. Returns due to improper fit will not be approved.
