I have seen some really pretty blouses in whatchamacallit, Bonne marche, loads of cotton, lots of seaming and shaping, about £20

shock shock

up to a 22 IIRC

NieuweBuurvrouw Sat 11-Jun-11 17:37:50

Oh, and what's 'cheap'?

IveAhorseOutside Sat 11-Jun-11 17:38:03

Size 16/18 on top

I can't afford White Stuff

I don't REALLY wear Mens T-shirts but I do love a huge mans hoody for mucking round in.

Should I just leave now?

IveAhorseOutside Sat 11-Jun-11 17:39:12

Thank you Boobies, I will look.

<elbows in, uninvited>

Has it GOT to be cotton? That narrows the search considerably

BecauseImWorthIt Sat 11-Jun-11 17:42:24

Cod will hate me for this, but Sainsbury's have some lovely linen tunics/long shirts at the moment. Grandad collar, 3/4 length sleeves (as well as a button fastener for rolling them up shorter if you want), pin tuck detail on the front.

(Actually just remembered I was wearing one of mine when I met Cod last grin)

They do them in white, coral and fine, pale green/turquoise pin stripe.

corsilk Sat 11-Jun-11 17:42:40

FriedaRoam Sat 11-Jun-11 17:43:15
