HOW WE MEASURE A GARMENT

 

How We Measure A Garment

If Manufacture's Label is Missing and/or this is a True Vintage Piece, this is how we measure.


All  measurements are taken in inches with the garment lying flat.
• Bust, waist and hip measurements are doubled. (17" x 2 = 34")
• If an item is "stretchy", we give a measurement range from flat and  will note "stretchy".
• When a measurement is listed as “Size Fits All”, it means that the garment is  roomy and will fit a range of sizes.

Shoulder: From shoulder seam to shoulder seam.
Sleeve  Length: From shoulder seam  to sleeve cuff.
Bust: From one armpit to the other, then doubled.
Waist: Across the smallest point of the waist, then doubled.
Hips: Across the fullest part of the hips, usually 7-9 inches below the  waist, then doubled.
Length: From the top of the garment to the hem.
Inseam: For shorts and pants, the entire length of the inner leg, from  crotch seam to hem.  
Rise: For pants, the waist to the crotch seam.
