I've got a 1920s themed party coming up and I need a dress for it. I haven't been able to find anything I like and the style in general doesn't suit me very well- size 10/12 pear shape with chubby arms. I'm 5ft 3. Would prefer a dress with sleeves but will settle for one without spaghetti straps! I have a (fake) fur wrap that may work for a cover up. Have black heeled mary-jane style shoes to wear with it.

Anyone know of where I could get such a dress? Budget up to about £60

This? Sleeves!

This is really cute.

Thanks Nomi - I think that might be a little clingy for my figure (anything that is supposed to be tight round the thighs tends to not fit me well)

Pale pink

x posted! The second one is SO cute! My legs aren't good enough for a playsuit but something like that as a dress would be lovely

The pale pink probably too pale for my (super pale) complexion - I tend to look really washed out. Thank you so much for the lovely suggestions. Love that website!

This is beautiful! Considering going over-budget for it

Have you looked on ebay? There are some great dresses to be had, such as this little number for 99p which finishes in 4 hours.
