More about sizes

This is why I ask for measurements when you call about vintage gowns. These patterns are from the 1960's. Note the size and bust measurement. Even IF one of my dresses has a size tag in it it might  be something like this: a size 12. Now you know that is not the same as a size 12 today. Another thing to keep in mind is that many vintage gowns have been altered to fit the bride as many are today. So nothing is a standard size. I have fit many brides who say they are a size 6 but one many have a smaller bust than the other. Or a different waist or different hips. Now you get the idea...
