A Note About Vintage garments

Please be aware that unless otherwise stated, every garment offered for sale by Dressed in History comes having lived a past life. As such, wear consistent with the age of the garment is to be expected and cherished as this is part of the character and appeal of vintage items. Your vintage treasure may require a little more love and care than newer garments in your wardrobe. As such, we offer a guide on the care and maintenance of your vintage item which can be found in the 'Buying Vintage' section on our website.  

Thank you for taking the time to read the 'boring bits', we really hope that you will not need them but as a small ‘one woman show’ business, it is necessary that I offer them for you to read.
