Most people find that our sizing runs generously. If you are undecided with which size to order, it is best to order the smaller size. Additionally, you may add your measurements (bust and waist) at check out and we can help you choose the nearest size.
An exception to the generous sizing is the type of ball gown that requires boning in the bodice and that supports a heavy skirt. Many times this style is also "off-the-shoulder" and requires a firm fit to stay up. These styles tend to not run as generously as most of our other garments because of this.
In most cases you should take your bust and waist measurement to determine your size. Please wear the undergarments that you intend to wear when you do your measuring. For example, take your measurement over the type of brassiere or corset that you may be wearing.
Measure the fullest part of your bust around and the smallest part of your waist.

From www.motorcities.org: "In 1909, the idea of a cross-country trip sparked the imagination and determination of Alice Ramsey. With her husband's support and a new car, she became the first woman to drive coast-to-coast. Her monumental trip stretched from New York City to San Francisco. She drove over and endured rugged roadways, overflowing streams and rocky terrain, as well as the flat lands of the plains. For nearly 3 months, with foot to the pedal, she pushed westward at a maximum speed of 40 miles per hour with her three female companions. Regardless of the hardships and difficulties she faced, she carried on and reached her destination."
This is a very nice duster, lightweight and unlined as I would imagine the originals were. The twill is very good quality, and the plaid touches on collar, cuffs, and buttons makes a very utilitarian garment more interesting. I did order up one size so it would actually be comfortable over my Edwardian dresses. The perfect garment to wear with a huge Edwardian hat and automobile bonnet pin!
