Nice knitted dresses for 3GS old DDs - where?

I want to get DDs a couple of nice knitted dresses each - suitable for everyday wear so not madly expensive. Have got lovely dresses from Baby Gap the last two years but can't see anything this year. Any suggestions apart from the obvious. Have looked at Next, M&S, Pumpkin Patch, Boden but can't see anything I really like.

jojo maman bebe usually have nice knitted dresses. Have not checked this year though as DD has outgrown them. Also white company and john lewis and frugi.

My main issue with winter dresses is that far too many have short sleeves (Boden a particular culprit) and I am not a big fan of the layering look.

Hadn't thought of those Wine - thanks. Absolutely with you on the short-sleeves but have surprised myself as DT2 has got two winters out of a gorgeous Gap knitted dress with short sleeves and a long-sleeved t under. Off to look at your suggestions now smile

I saw some beautiful knitted dresses in Christian Dior the other day - so soft and beautiful, but I doubt I would put a baby in it; unless the baby was fast asleep.

Have you tried John Lewis?

Thanks Coffee. Yes, just checked John Lewis, JoJo, LaRedoute, Zara (some lovely things but alas few knitted dresses) - if I wasn't looking for a knitted dress every store would probably be awash with them! Monsoon - must check there next!

Debenhams have some and so do ASDA. I have just been looking at them for my DDs.

Verbadeut -have just got gorgeous knitted dress for dd there. Plus if you are new customer you get £15 off order over £20. Has short sleeves but I ordered a 3 pack of layering tops that also go with loads of other stuff she has.

Wish I could link to exact dress but on pad. It's cream with fair isle type pattern and I would wear it myself!!

Go to their website and girls dresses and it's first one on 2nd page. Also in black.

Try Benetton, I saw some good ones there recently.

Couple of possibilities at Vertbaudet and Debenhams, thank you. I need tom get to Benetton! Their little girls clothes look gorgeous. Need to work out where the nearest Benetton with a good children's dept is!
