Top 5 Etsy shops for ’50s-inspired frocks
Yesterday I picked out my top 12 Etsy shops for original mid-century clobber. But there are also loads of designers on Etsy making vintage-inspired fashion. And some of them are custom-made. Here are my top five shops for ’50s-inspired frocks:
Soho Mode (pictured above)
You can still order frocks via Soho Mode’s Etsy shop, but all of the off-the-rack frocks are available from the new website. Either way, check it out for the most adorable ‘50s-style tea dresses in gorgeous floral fabrics.

A really lovely range of made-to-measure frocks that are inspired by the ‘50s and ‘60s. If you like super-flattering frocks with sleeves, check them out.
Michelle makes a range of girlish ‘50s-inspired frocks and skirts with sweet details, such as Peter Pan collars, bows and button embellishments.

This UK-based Etsy shop sells limited-edition and one-off pieces ‘50s-style frocks made from vintage fabric. They are also opening a bricks and mortar shop in Brighton, so keep an eye out for it if you’re in the area. I love the elbow-length Audrey dress (above left).
