So even before the advent of Mad Men and all that it entails, I was, and still am a huge fan of classic styles. However, when it comes to a vintage look, I’ve always thought that there’s a fine line between looking well put-together and looking like your Nan. The difference? The fit.
Browsing on Etsy has revealed a group of very talented women who will actually make these dresses to your exact measurements or the size that you choose. Many will also list the many beautiful fabrics they are able to make their dresses in.
Here is the makeup of my current ‘favourites’ list on Etsy. I have included the name of the dress exactly as it appears in the listing, and a link to the store.

I think the prices of these dresses are very reasonable indeed. Shipping rates will vary according to where you live, but I haven’t seen any above $15.
