The trends and looks that came out of '60s fashion were some of the boldest and the brightest the fashion world had ever seen. A time of great turmoil, great change, and absolutely fantastic music, the 1960s brought us trends that just keep coming back.
If you want to add some trends from fashion in the 1960s to your wardrobe, this is the list for you! Check out Fashion in the 1960s: 21 Vintage '60s Sewing Patterns for Today to find some vintage style dresses, 1960s fashion patterns, and other vintage sewing patterns that will fit right at home in your modern wardrobe.
From slim-fit jeans to mini-skirts, '60s fashion was a force to be reckoned with when it emerged. We’re still seeing these trends come and go over and over again! Shows like the ever-popular Mad Men show us sixties fashion in its prime, making those old looks look oh so good!
The sixties brought us a revolution in fashion. Before the 1960s and the rise of burgeoning and powerful youth culture, all of the fashion trends were dictated entirely by fashion gurus and stars in European cities like Paris and London.
As times changed and the baby boomer generation started growing up and expressing itself, this influence changed entirely! Just as it is today, young people entirely dictated high fashion and street fashion in the 1960s. This is why many of these trends were controversial, showy, and progressive.
The rise of the single, self-sufficient woman meant feminine office wear, mini-skirts, and even more trousers for women. Keep scrolling to find out how you can use vintage sewing patterns to add some '60s fashion to your modern wardrobe.

Swinging '60s Style Dresses and Skirts
The fashion of the 1960s was a radical shift from previous decades as hemlines rose, and feminine and fitted garments took on boxier shapes with the introduction of everything mod. Models like Twiggy.
Jean Shrimpton and Jane Birkin made the mini skirt a staple of the decade, as did designers like Mary Quant and Yves Saint Laurent. These free dress patterns and skirt tutorials are the perfect way to show off your legs in style this summer!
Mad Men-Inspired Clothing
The '60s clothing trends were reflected in shows like Mad Men show off the professional style worn by working women and men during this decade. Skirts became less full from previous years, and the classic 'secretary' style look with fitted sweaters, low heels, and fun accessories became the day-to-day fashion for women.
Even if you have yet to watch Mad Men or other sixties shows, you'll still want to treat yourself to a brand new look for work with these vintage-inspired sewing patterns that are completely office-approved. There are even a few kid-sized designs below.
