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.
Made by Best & Co. New York. Vintage tag size 14. However, please note this is a very small dress. It is shown on a modern US size 0 dress form and was very "form fitting." Please refer to the measurements listed below, taken while laying flat and doubled where appropriate.
