Slim-fitting, long-waisted, round-necked jumpers - anyone?

Has anyone seen such?

I'm looking for school uniform colours such as dark grey, black, wine, khaki. Not boyfriend length, but fairly long-waisted so they sit against the hip rather than right on the waist. Prefer wool/cashmere but so desperate I'll order anything. Round neck, so collared blouses can fit underneath. Otherwise totally plain.

I have the black one of these and it's exactly as you describe, and they also have a khaki.

Don't pay full price though - there is an MN discount I think and they are always doing offers/codes, do an MN search and you might find something.

Thanks Begonia - the shape is great, but fear it's too short. I have a long waist, so what looks like hip-length on a model often clings to my waist. It's the closest I've seen, though, so I'll order a few.

No burgundy, though <wail>

I know Next is a dirty word round here but they have a Tall section and I only ever order tops from there as normal-sized tops are just too short on me. They might not have what you are looking for but worth a look?

Thanks ceebee - I'm not fussed about the label if the length is right so will take a look.

Cos and Boden on order - thanks all

Kandy I'm also long-waisted and tall and it's mid-bum length on me. Fingers crossed!
