Please can you help me find a cheaper alternative to this dress I love the shape and would ideally like small breton stripes, alternative could be plain. Many thanks

Too broad a stripe but good price?

Clure Fri 15-Jul-11 19:53:56

thanks, sarkyspanner I liked the shape of the ones you linked to but the colours were a bit pale for me
scurryfunge - liked the colour of the one you linked to but prefer smaller stripes
I don't usually do striped so think a smaller stripe is a way to ease into it, thanks though

Are the long sleeves essential?

Dotty P

this is the same one i think?

Clure Fri 15-Jul-11 20:42:23

I'd like 3/4 or long sleeves with this style sarky,
tethers - will check out the DottyP one really like that, the warehouse one is interesting, it would have to be tried on
Ivy - it is the same, I wondered why it was so cheap, when I check the sizes it;s the children's version, however I could fit an age 11-12 as I usually wear a size 6-8 and am 5'1 so your option is worth a think, guess I could try FC one in store then order that one from website

Have also just found this in indigo although not sure how Gap sizes come up

thanks for all the brilliant suggestions

IvyAndGold Fri 15-Jul-11 20:59:18

oh right, didn't check that sorry! grin gap sizes come up quite big i find, i'm normally a ten, but most of my clothes from there are an 8 or 6

in the sale

mmm, right went shopping today, they didn't have the indigo colour Gap one, wish I'd have tried the other colour on to get an idea of size and fit then could have ordered it online.
French connection didn't have the original I linked to but did have a similar version which looked a bit like a nightshirt (it had those little button down the front)
DP's didn't have the stripey one in.
Thanks again for suggestions, the search goes on. I would prefer to try something in shop as I've recently ordered and sent back quite a bit from the internet - the post office are sick of me and my parcels grin

They had some in Peacocks today- not online though.

Unadventurous Sat 16-Jul-11 19:26:44

How about this?

Clure Sat 16-Jul-11 23:30:20

unadventurous, I;m liking your suggestion, what a bargain too

Unadventurous Sun 17-Jul-11 10:14:43

Thanks Clure - I know. I'm tempted, but have gone for the top version - in both colours as I couldn't make my mind up!

Clure Sun 17-Jul-11 21:28:42

aaaargh, they dont have it in an 8! But have sent for the DP one, fingers crossed it fits as I want it to travel on my hols next weeek!
