Some items do not carry a full range of international sizes in the label so i use an internet international size conversion site to translate UK sizes into EURO and US sizes ~ the site has proved very accurate, however if you are unsure please check sizes for yourself.
All measurements are taken with the garment pulled a bit to flatten (unless otherwise stated) ~ and please be aware that there is inevitably a slight discrepancy in the ways different people measure ~ so all measurements are approximate and please give or take about a 1/4 inch or so either way.
Please measure against a similar item of your own which you know fits you well.

~ Tweed & English Heritage ~
English heritage, according to Glamour Magazine, means quintessentially British style & classic fabrics, particularly tweed! The gurus of fashion have pinned their labels to the woven cloth and it's now the sexy stuff that pencil-slim, hip-hugging trousers and skirts are made of!
Glamour Magazine asserted that what used to be thought of as slightly stuffy and old fashioned is now so en vogue ~ so it is worth stocking up on some "country staples", full of exciting textures like tweed and sheepskin... Nubby rough fabrics such as this will make an astonishing impact when teamed with more delicate fabrics such as silk or chiffon - so this could be a good opportunity to mix and match!!!
