I would love a denim dress but it must;

Not be short (knee ish length)
Quite like the flared style as opposed to tight fitting
Long sleeves or some type of sleeves would be nice
I like indigo denim

Any ideas where I could find one?

I like the Mango one. The Oasis one is fine but the belt would need replacing with a nicer one.

this is a bit Irish Laundries

The transportation one would be frightful on anybody over a size 8 and with norks bigger than an A cup.

And the Phase Eight one is bloody awful - like a cat lady dress. smile

christ though, if they cant make it look nice on the model...

That JL one is frightful. Sorry to anybody who likes it!

I think they are all hideous tbh, other than the v basic/classic shirt style ones.

Dorothy!

Nice but only buttons at the top

yes, that's the one. It looked good on the hanger. Like a real 1970s dress. (I remember my mum's very trendy friend had one just like it.) Do you get lots of wear from it?

I saw a nice one in Debenhams (Jasper Conran) about six weeks ago but didn't have time to try it on. Very similar to what you describe.

Pricey, possibly short, but I love this one: uk.tommy.com/DENIM-Dress/1M87625864,en_GB,pd.html?color=423&utm_source=google&utm_medium=organic&utm_campaign=google_shopping&utm_content=98574-DE612D49-85CE-46A0-9869-5E2310D4D61B&kwd_id=98574-DE612D49-85CE-46A0-9869-5E2310D4D61B&gclid=CKKzzoOMqrYCFZDKtAodcBIA4Q
