HERE. I bought it last year in burgundy and it's the softest, warmest dress ever. Comes up large so if you're a 14 you could get away with the 12 (which is the only size left.) It's quite long too, just above the knee on me and I'm 5'5".

is it really dry clean only???

Erm, I've washed mine on the handwash cycle in my machine lots of times and it's totally fine. Wouldn't spin it fast or tumble dry it, but a gentle spin cycle is ok.

Oooo I love jumper dresses...I am a 14-16 tho...but love the colour...

isn't it itchy? have had bad experiences with mohair

I got my usual size and it's slouchy, so if you are a 14 the 12 will be more fitted, but it's a pretty heavy knit so won't show lumps and bumps (probably - that's just my guess.)

Now out of stock.

TheBirdsTheBirds Thu 18-Oct-12 16:07:23

No it's really soft MissFoodie, don't think it's pure mohair.

TheBirdsTheBirds Thu 18-Oct-12 16:07:38

haha, who bought it?

MissFoodie Thu 18-Oct-12 16:09:01

me smile

MissFoodie Thu 18-Oct-12 16:09:30

judging by the length on the model it will barely reach my knees, but will hopefully be a nice long jumper! love the colour!

TheBirdsTheBirds Thu 18-Oct-12 16:10:07

Yay! I knew someone would want it smile

MissFoodie Thu 18-Oct-12 16:11:50

another "thing I saw on mumsnet that I just have to have"..............!!!!!!!!!!!!

TheBirdsTheBirds Thu 18-Oct-12 16:12:06

And yes, the colour is gorgeous, I would def have bought it if they had my size left (good job they didn't really, as why would I need yet another jumper dress hmm)

MissFoodie Thu 18-Oct-12 16:13:37

I have an issue with jumpers always being too short in the body, so this looks perfect! thanks again! smile

TheBirdsTheBirds Thu 18-Oct-12 16:22:48

I never thought of wearing mine as a giant jumper, but that's a good idea! I always just wear it with opaque black tights. I can now cross 'oversized slouchy jumper' off my shopping list, so thanks to you too! smile

MissFoodie Thu 18-Oct-12 16:24:24

yes, bet (hope) it'll look nice over leggings/boots or skinny jeans

TheBirdsTheBirds Thu 18-Oct-12 16:26:36

Definitely! This has actually inspired me to try and make my wardrobe work harder and wear things differently rather than just buying new stuff all the time. (Pretty obvious to most people maybe blush)
