Here at Your Vintage Life we love vintage dresses. In fact my personal collection is a little out of control…..much to My YVL’s despair. I used to buy 1960s shift dresses in the late 1980s and customise them, teaming them up with my trusty DMs.
My taste has changed over the years but I still am buying!
However, as I’ve had 2 children, even at a large size 12 it can be sometimes hard to find the dress I love in my size. Vintage fashion is often teeny weeny so if you are plus sized it is almost impossible to find lovely designs in fab colours, without looking too much like an overall.
Well, a few weeks back we bought the entire collection of dresses from a stylish local lady. Her size was a modern 16-18 and her eye for fabric detail was fabulous.
Most are handmade, with brightly coloured fabric. They are flattering and stylish and most importantly, well made.
