  • For products made in our Rayon Crepe fabric we suggest you care for the garment in the same way you would for an original 40’s garment.

    We recommend you hand wash the garment just as they did back in the 1940’s, although nowadays you can dry clean them instead if you wish!

    Best not to dry them in direct sunlight or in an excessively hot place, as this can cause the natural yarn to twist and subsequently shrink.

    If you find you have washed or dried the garment too hot by accident, you can try the following method to regain the original size and fit.  Although this isn’t guaranteed to work, it may help!


    1. Please soak the garment in cold water with a very generous helping of fabric conditioner and leave overnight.

    2. Then, rinse the garment in fresh cold water and as you gently squeeze out the excess water, stretch the garment in both width and length as far as you can.

    3. Lay the garment flat on a towel to start drying slowly; but iron while it is still damp, again stretching in both directions.

    For our Atomic Satin print we recommend dry cleaning only.

Absolutely beautiful dress made to fit...

"Dear lovely people at The Seamstress of Bloomsbury, thank goodness (and Instagram) I found you – these two blouses make me so happy and I’ll be watching the site from now on. Is it weird to be excited already to see what you do for Winter? Both items are unworn apart from 3 minutes in my bedroom swishing around in front of my husband. Many thanks.”


Beautifully made...

"I loved my first purchase so much I ordered 2 more items. The quality of fabric, construction and even the button holes exceeded my expectations. Beautifully made. Items arrived in good amount of time with emails letting me know when they shipped. I look forward to buying more."


Quality of work is top notch...

"Beautifully sewn and finished. The quality of the work is top notch. My blouse is timeless and will last. Packaged well and arrived timely- I was even sent a lovely brooch as a gift, that complimented my ensemble! The Seamstress of B is a new favourite store. With this quality, I'll be making many purchases here."


Immediately fell in love with it...

"I’m very happy with my purchases. The clothes are absolutely beautiful and of great quality. I bought the 43’’ Swing Coat and when my mom saw it she immediately fell in love with it and asked me to buy one for her. The coat looks great on both of us.

Also thanks to the people from the customer service for being so nice and patient for helping me out."


I felt a million dollars in it...

"I chose the beautiful Vintage Mabel dress in Red as my wedding dress from you. It was the loveliest dress I have worn in a very long time. The fit was perfect, and I felt a million dollars in it.
Thank you so very much."


Lovely cheery pattern...

"I am absolutely delighted with my purchase of a Nancy dress in Floral pattern. It is a great fit and true to the size guide. The material is lovely and I love the higher waist and tabs and all the other attention to detail. It is a lovely cheery pattern. The dress came immediately and the help I received when ordering was excellent."


Effortlessly vintage chic...

"I have bought many times from them. Their prints are so unique and I love how they have many different prints and colours for each style. Sometimes, I get little freebies too, and I'm glad they show appreciation to customers this way. My favourite has to be the Peggy dress which goes with everything and is effortlessly vintage chic!"


Attention to detail, design and workmanship is incredible...

"Thank you so much for my recent and first order with you. I am completely delighted! The attention to detail and quality of fabric, design and workmanship is incredible. As is value for money! I will certainly be ordering again!"


Absolutely beautiful dress made to fit...

"Very flattering fit, beautiful fabric, cunning, cunning design that made my belly look flat (magic!!) and hit all the 1940's styling points to make me feel like a saucy seaside postcard girl. Very much worth the money."


Just perfect...

"Just perfect. I don't often give 5 stars but this deserves it. Fits beautifully, true to size, lovely simple vintage style with the bow and cute shirring around shoulders. Fabric has nice "body" to it, doesn't feel cheap or "raggy." And the shade was perfect. Thank you, I will definitely be making more purchases from this store."
