Early 1960s styles of dresses

Wonderful vintage summer dresses and sundresses made for the larger size vintage loving gal. Stylish fashionable vintage dresses from the 1950s & 1960s in bigger sizes that are as cute as the small sizes.
These dresses just show that large size vintage does not have to look dowdy or look like ones that their Grandmother wore.
