New items are listed under the size that they are labelled with, eg. UK 11. Equivalent sizings will be listed when possible.
I measure as accurately as possible. Measurements are the fabric when laying flat. Keep in mind you will need to account for comfort in your measurements. So if a waist says 26" you need to be a bit smaller than 26" to fit comfortably. How much depends on you & your idea of comfort. Vintage size numbers are not the same as modern size numbers so please do not go by those. There are no standard size numbers anymore so it is too confusing. only go by the inches and label it Small, Medium, or Large or Med/Large, etc...to make it easier. I measure items in their un-stretched state & always mention if fabric stretches or not. I measure exactly not approximately so keep that in mind when measuring yourself.
