So handy, so comfortable, so versatile, so good at hiding a multitude of sins........ sad

I am in the tea dress/opaques/flats/cardigan group.

Am 5ft and an apple and tunics look like hell on me.

Never managed to work out what to put on feet with leggings and jeans are no longer my friend now that I have breached size 14 :-D

Tea dresses don't have to be made out of polyester! Cheap or otherwise!

I don't think I have anything made of polyester. Tea dresses are usually silk, viscose, cotton or cotton jersey. Viscose is an odd one; I can't decide if it is man made or not. It is from a natural fibre but seems to involve more processes than silk or wool.

I'm sure I've seen cotton tea dresses.

A tea dress would make me look like I shopped at Eastex or Windsmoor. Frumptastic!

Tea dresses have the same effect on me Fish - I could get away with them in my younger days. Mid forties and I just look like a middle aged wifie in a floral frock - which is what I am, I guess grin
