Starting a Vintage Clothing Collection

  1. 1. Starting a Vintage Clothing Collection By Hayley Ninnis
  2. 2. Introduction • A collector and seller of vintage clothing, Hayley Ninnis offers many choice items through her Etsy store. Hayley Ninnis’ expertise in this area is backed by a formal education in art as well as a lifetime interest in vintage clothing. When starting a vintage clothing collection, the first thing to consider is your intent in purchasing these items. If you plan to wear your vintage finds as part of your regular wardrobe, you will need to know your measurements. Sizes change through the decades, which means that your size in contemporary clothing will not be the size you wear in a garment from an earlier decade.
  3. 3. Vintage Clothing Collection • This is particularly relevant if you plan to purchase clothing online, as Internet retailers are likely to publish clothing measurements alongside garment descriptions. Whether you wear or display your vintage garments, quality is key. If you look for characteristics such as silk linings, covered buttons, and piped seams, you are more likely to add well-made pieces to your collection. You can also research the designers and styles of a particular period, as well as the cut and fit of the clothing. Finally, know how to look for fabric that has held up well in both structure and color so that you get years of enjoyment out of your investment.
