Edinburgh Etsy: premium vintage picks from Sartorial Matters

We are super lucky to have plenty of well-stocked charity shops and vintage boutiques in Edinburgh. It's an awesome way to spend the day, wandering around Marchmont, Stockbridge or the Grassmarket.  If you're not able to get out and about though or take a fancy that you need a 1950's taffeta prom dress as soon as possible, this is where Etsy shop Sartorial Matters steps right in.  Based in Edinburgh, Sartorial Matters picks the best of our vintage threads and puts them right there on Etsy for your delectation and only the cream of the crop will do.  Beautiful dresses from the 1940s, 50s and 60s seem to be a specialty, with rockabilly, steampunk, figure hugging siren dresses, 80s batwing and fairisle jumpers all covered too.  I'm definitely envisaging a summer in some airy 1950's summer dresses.  One of the difficulties of shopping vintage online can be vague sizing and dingy photos but all of the items for sale have photos, measurements and the approximate modern size which is helpful for dummies like me to figure out fits. Here are our favourite summer picks from the shop!
