Awful sorry. Very frumpy.

I much prefer the AX Paris skater dress CuriousMama posted.

I thought it would look odd on, and it does. The neckline is bizarre. It's very low, but almost stretched across the shoulders...It has that look of very, very old clothes that have been washed five times too many and really should be in the bin.

My first thought was that it looked like a nightie from M&S.

No,sorry - not good

Owl dress here. Looks nice if you have the legs for it.

Agree with remus- don't buy anything that looks cheaper than what you have paid! The neckline looks like it has been stretched out, the grey ribbon makes a sad limp bow, and the material looks as though it is thin and will be too clingy.

I have this fat face dress and it fits beautifully! Think might be similar to what you're looking for?

Don't like it. It looks cheap and the neckline/boob section looks v weird.

It looks like one of the moshi monsters on it

here it is on a model, looks really baggy on her, and like her bra straps showing

Sorry but I think it's horrid! sad

It looks like a toddler's dress, made adult-size. I think it would look very odd tbh.

I like it. I tried on the same in the grey colour. It fits (me) nicely. The material is not clingy. But I chose instead a different (little birdie dress) one, as I couldn't get both. It is a low neckline and you would need to wear a heattech or similar top underneath. The grey colourway had orange owls, and to me that was too limitingly (if that's a word?!) autumnal (iyswim?) and I get what spons is saying about the christmassy feel of this one.

If you have a great figure! Not something I would wear.

The Grey ribbon is odd. Too low for empire and to high for waist... Nice fabric though.

Spons Wed 05-Dec-12 11:20:17

I think it's nice, but would you wear it much outside of Christmas time? I've got a similar red jumper and I only ever get it out this time of year for some reason?

Also, fat face have some good similar pattern dresses in the sale for £20, might be worth a look too?

I love the material!! but agree with others about def trying it on as not only the neckline looks low, but also the grey line under the boobs, seems oddly placed hmm

whiteandyelloworchid Wed 05-Dec-12 11:10:30

hmm the neckline does look low, i think id have to try it on.
i just like the owls i think lol

I like the fabric, but I agree the neckline is odd (looks too low) and the fabric looks worryingly clingy.

noddyholder Wed 05-Dec-12 11:04:54

No don't like it looks like a boden child's dress.

CajaDeLaMemoria Wed 05-Dec-12 11:04:07

I have no idea.

First thoughts were that the pattern is nice but the fabric looks clingy. Then that the neckline looks odd and might be too low cut for my boobs. I get worried I'll fall out of too low rounded necks.

But looking at it again it could just be photographed oddly? I think I'd want to see it on a model or try it on before buying it, to see if it would be clingy around areas I didn't want.
