SHIRT MEASUREMENT GUIDE

The task of selling handmade clothing has one inherent difficulty, size. Two countries, 2 different standards of measurements, dozens of  dozens of artists making clothing the way they were taught from their parents and relatives.  Variation is the only standard.  So what we have done is take some key measurements from each individual shirt and post those measurements to you. Below is a diagram to how we take the measurements. You can measure these on yourself or take a shirt that fits you well and measure it , then compare. Always allow for extra room and shrinkage!  However you do it, you can also rely on our 30 day return policy. All of us here and all of those hard working people in Ukraine want you to be completely satisfied, so if you have any questions please write us at sales@allthingsukrainian.com .
