To wear for a christening and later for parties etc in the summer.
I'm 5 ft 6 but my legs are not fit to be seen and have a 40 inch bust. I've tried the size 10 and it fits perfectly even on the bust and ends just above the ankles.

I just copied and pasted it. I'm assuming its for a special occasion? I wouldn't wear it as it looks very long, I'm only 5' 1" but I do like the floral pattern smile

It's a bit of a mumsy print for my liking, but I can see that the cut might be flattering, especially if you don;t like your legs.

The only problem being that the sight is saying its out of stock sad

ooh, I do love a "what do you think of my dress" thread for a saturday night grin

link again for those who just wanna click

I like it. How you carry it off would depend a lot on your colouring, imho.

It's in stock in the store. smile
I'm a red head btw. The print looks v nice in real life - a kind of teal colour and the fit is slightly figure hugging but not too clingy. It's cotton with a built in slip underneath.

I like it, the patterns lovely.

MarcellusWallace Sat 11-Jun-11 21:59:03

I like it lots.

Dragonwoman Sat 11-Jun-11 21:59:05

Oh thanks for the link. I couldn't get it to work properly using this iPod!

Ooh I like it ... looks like a good cut. I have similar but from Fat Face and knee length, swishy type.

Its beautiful. Wouldnt suit me at all sad , but I'd jump at it like a shot if it did. The fabric is lovely.

Dragon, that would look absolutely gorgeous on a red head envy

(would look crap on me, brown hair and pale skin)

Glad the overall consensus is good cos I bought it! (Although I can return it if I change my mind).
I used to think East was for older ladies but I'm 40 now & think I need to dress a bit more classy than I used to. Also I've tried on loads of dresses & this one was the only one to fit my bust and fit well on the body that I liked & wasn't too short. smile

I like it smile

UrsulaBuffay Sat 11-Jun-11 22:14:54
