I might be asking too much, but I want a nice dress with 3/4 length or long sleeves....

...which I can wear to a wedding in October and which isn't:
a) a shapeless smock dress
b) overly 'vampy', e.g. a bandage dress
c) very expensive. I would rather not spend more than £100, and would prefer to pay much less!

I'm a size 8-10. I'm not trying to hide my arms or anything. I just like the way sleeves look.

I did find one I really liked the look of, from Coast (this one), but it's quite expensive, plus I'm not sure how much it would bunch up underneath the belt at the back.

If anyone has any suggestions, I would be eternally grateful!

too plain? I've just bought this and am going to wear it to a wedding, I wanted something suitable for being there with toddlers (washable and not snaggable fabric!) There are discount codes (see my other thread..)

I love american apparel for bra tops, esp the terry towelling ones, comfy, sexy and good for the beach/festivals

Have a look on the Isabella Oliver website. They have several lovely dresses with sleeves. About £99 each, but code FASHION15 gets 15% off and free delivery.

Sorry for the late response everyone. Some fantastic ideas here - thank you! Only problem is that now I've seen several I really like (and not all of them even for the wedding, either). Bother, I wish I had more money...and wardrobe space.
