Please help me find a dress for my Grandpa's funeral.

Funeral is next Monday. He asked for no black so I need something smartish, relatively bright, not too much cleavage on show and it HAS to cover my knees.

I'm a size 16 with a problem tummy and terrible legs!

has to be a dress?
is hard this time of year
look on the other hot date thread - shiney ( before we sorted her) found lots of dull jersey dresses

teal - this better i think

Doesn't have to be a dress, I suppose. A dress just seemed easier!

Most of the ones on Shiney's thread were almost too dull, he was very specific about wanting people to look cheerful.

I have NO dress sense so I have no idea what to go for.

If you fancy finding jewellery, shoes, etc too I'd be very grateful.

The pink/blue is nice as long as it would cover my knees grin.

I'm 5'6", that model is taller, isn't she?

AnnThology Mon 18-Jul-11 13:09:44 but boring but useful
