As I’m sure you know by now, I love nothing more than a great vintage 1960s dress – I’m just a sucker for the Sixties! So I had great fun this week looking for the best vintage dresses from that decade and I’ve found some fabulous frocks for you. From mod minidresses, to bright psychedelic swirls to Mad Men style glamorous party dresses and smart Jackie Kennedy dress suits – they’re all gorgeous.
I seriously want to buy the Poppy print mini dress, but sadly it’s just too small for me *sniff*. Which is your favourite? Let me know if the comments below!
As usual, just click on an item to find out more about it
If you run a vintage store and would like to be included in future features like this one make sure you sign up to my Vintage Directory and I’ll be in touch when I’m looking for vintage to feature!
Of course, if you’re talented enough and love making your own clothes, why not make yourself a dress from a vintage pattern? Take some inspiration from Catherine over at Sewing The 60s, who shares her amazing home-sewn wardrobe of 60s dresses. She has some great sew-along projects too!

What a lovely collection of goodies. I don’t usually go for sixties, they’re totally wrong for my body shape, saying that…
I totally love the red silk wiggle dress with bow and the ecru mini dress. Stunners.
PS: Thank you for including some of my dresses in your wonderful article
Happy to include your dresses, you’ve got some gorgeous things. I particuarly like that red silk dress too – very Mad Men!

Hi Colleen, how I wish that dress would fit me! I’m half tempted to go on a diet to see if I could squeeze into it, but I know from experience it’s just not worth buying something the wrong size!
