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.
Gorgeous vintage 1960s wool suit by Adolph Blank. Black, grey and white tweed with a very dark, almost black, fur collar. Jacket has a button front and two decorative buttons on the back and flap pockets. Skirt has back zipper and button closure. This suit is in excellent condition apart from a bit of dry cleaning build-up on the buttons, this can probably be remedied by a dry cleaner. See last photo.

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 do to improper fit will not be approved.
