Swing cardigan for DD

DD (8) wants a swing cardigan to replace one that she is refusing to accept she has grown out of. The sort with just one or two buttons at the neck and flared a bit, that you can wear over dresses.
The one she loved that is now too small was from John Lewis, but they now only have a shell pink version in her size, and she hates the colour here .

The only other ones I have found have been school uniform, or Boden (very pricy, looks thin, and I don't like the lack of finish on the hem), or else they have been cropped, which we don't want.

Basically we want one exactly like the John Lewis one, but not pink, and not "school uniform" colours.

Has anyone seen one anywhere? I am fed up of her going round looking like a waif with two inches of exposed wrist at the cuff.

There are a couple on the vertbaudet site - here and here - never bought anything from there so can't comment on sizing or quality. They've got pages of cardies, might be worth a look.

Thanks, they look quite good, and I think the colours are OK.
Shame there is no age 9 size though, will have to hope they don't come up small.
Will see what DD says when she gets in from school.

My DD has loads of cardies from boden (rich cousin hands them down) and I have always been really pleased with them. I don't seem to be able to link to eBay from my phone by I just searched "boden Cardigan 9" and got lots like you are after, if second hand is an option.
