Vintage Black 1960s Dress

Jun 13, 2011 6 comments
Gratuitous outfit post, to distract you while I feverishly work on the red polonaise, to be worn this weekend (eeek! it has no sleeves!)

Also, this is one of my favorite dresses ever.  I did not make it, but was lucky enough to snag it from a friend, Lady Carolyn, who was liquidating some of her amazing vintage closet.  It's a black silk sheath, nicely fitted through the waist, and with some pleaty detail on the bust.

I wore it with an ochre colored pillbox hat, to Debbie and Oscar's wedding on Sunday.


  1. What a great dress! And pairing it with the yellow hat is genius!

  2. Thank you so much, ladies! I joke that the reason this vintage dress fits so well is because I didn't make it, haha

  3. That's a really great dress. I love those vintage fashions and the classic-modern look of the 1950's and 60's. Wish we had those fashions today! :)

    This Good Life
