Just that really!! No babies involved, the dc are 5 and 7. Have got their clothes sorted, but now have realised I might need something too. Oops. I have a nice Phase Eight Dress from a friends wedding earlier in the yr but would rather have something a bit longer than that - it's a good few inches above knee and perhaps not good for chasing children and sitting?!

bumping at a reasonable hour when people are up grin

Right... what's your budget/size/build?

Any favourite colours?

Do you want sleeves?

Any no-nos?

Erm, yes I forgot to mention any of that hmm blimey I'm clever...

Fave colours purple, blues and greys
Budget £70
Knee length-ish I think
size 8 blush

I've got this in purple , would love to wear but I think it's a bit short (on me) as it is about 4" above knee standing, and much shorter sitting blush

Over budget

slightly over budget

too short still?

hcts - I'm alarmed that I really like that Boden one grin
tethers, you angel - I'm off for a good look now smile

I found a nice grey lace thing in Wallis hmm
Lovely from the front, hideous tacky on-trend mahoosive zip on back ruined it for me sad

I bought this dress, but there are lots of lovely ones on the dresses page. I find that the cut of their clothes are generally nice.
