Looks too big for the model.

Also, I bought a similar dress recently and it made me look like a wizard.

Love the print, but like this better...

Tethers as usual your taste is impeccable, I much prefer that one too....I can see another order coming on.

The GP one is polyester and teh JL one is silk, which might affect how they look in real life - the JL one might look really classy. If you like bird prints Fatface have a dress and a tunic which are more casual in style

Looke better on the "complete the look" model than the main one. I like it.

I like the JL one, but the model makes it look bad, weirdly. The styling is all wrong.

There is one in dorothy Perkins called bird print tie back dress, I can't do links on my iPad yet but it looks nice

A friend of mine has the dress tether linked. It looks great on and looks much more expensive than it is.

I like the JL dress. I think it's the model's hairdo which is all wrong for the dress. Hair down and floaty would be apt.

I like the fat face tunic but it's out of stock in my size. Damm it.

It arrived -how quick, only ordered yesterday. Is gorgeous but last 1cm of zip won't do up. Think next size will be too big as perfect everywhere but rib cage...I really recommend it picture does not do it justice really beautiful dress

See? I knew it'd be nice without a posh up-do.

Gosh it's really badly styled on the blonde model but looks fab on the 'Complete the look' model. Don't know what they wear thing re the blonde - the dress is too big, her hair is bonkers and she has way too much blusher on.

Silk over polyester, any day imho.

were thinking NOT wear thing: am writing through a migraine. Sorry.

I love the JL and Great Plains dresses. Good job I'm pg and MASSIVE or this could have been an expensive thread!

Great Plains dresses 'drape' really well & agree, look much more expensive than they are, IMO.

Warehouse has some lovely silk printed dresses, perhaps mostly shorter than the JL one but similar price...have a look here

That fat face dress is lovely, they had it in the shop. Non left big enough for mesad, but they have it to fit DD1 who would look amazing in it. Christmas?
