Can you find this dress from my crappy drawing of it?

You might have to squint a bit...

It was a flowy cottony fabric, striped black and white at the (square) neck and cuffs, with a striped belt. Half sleeves. The rest of the dress was a black and cream geometric pattern, quite small, almost Indian looking.

Can anyone find it?

I'm bumping because someone who has gone to the trouble of drawing the dress of her dreams and then posting said drawing on the interweb ... well, she deserves not to languish.

My guess, for a starter of 10 points: Cos? Hoss?

By the way, Tethers, if you were stalking gazing at this dress so intently, why didn;t you just ask the wearer where it was from? (I'm asking because I just know there will be an interesting answer to this ...)

Good question, cat- it was on a teacher at DD's early years assembly. I thought it might be slightly inappropriate to pipe up and ask her where she got it from in the middle of the hello song grin

It's not from cos, will check Hoss... Sorry about the shite quality of the pic.

No idea, but wanted to applaud your drawing and resourcefulness!

Thanks very much grin

Morticia, your link doesn't work, but I googled 'top shop tunic dress' and you're right, it's this one... Well done!

Now if we can just find one...

Yaaaay!

What size?

Maybe you coukd ring the Palace and ask if you can have Kates dress? She wont fit in it any more.

Actually I thought your sketch was v good and I've had a good trawl of the intertubes looking for a 'black and white kaftan dress' as I think that's the closest to your drawing. I haven't yet found anything close enough I'm afraid. I'll keep thinking though. I really like what you're searching for!

tethersend Fri 12-Jul-13 23:03:11

Yeah, I could have Kate's, provided she had two and I could sew them together grin

I need a size 16. It's just not going to happen.

Now we know what it is... Can anyone find one?

The bad news is this seems to be from 2007 or earlier.

Bugger.

Ah well, thanks all the same!
