Longer length dressy jumper

I'm fond of the skinny jean look but really have to wear longer tops over them. Looking for a jumper I can wear on slightly dressier occasions that will cover my lumpy bits. All jumpers seem to be either long and chunky, short and chunky or short and fine-knit. Where are these elusive long and fine-knits, please?

Bumping. I want one too.

My mum loves one she got from Primark, but v acrylicy I think.

Hmmm, yep acrylicy not so good. Needs to be longer length, dressy and warm. The hunt continues...

I want one tooooooo...Seems like Primark are the only ones to do longer length and fine-knit, but they're just not nice enough for formalish occasions.

Can you post a link to the sort of thing you mean (from Primark or wherever) so we can look for a non acrylicy version for you?

I saw some from a distance in Oasis today but I didn't go up close and suspect they would have all been acrylic. Warehouse? Probably viscose or acrylic there too though.

I have just bought a long fine knit cashmere tunic from Wrap-in the sale in shell[pale pink].Its flattering on me [size 14 with a tummy] and a pretty colour.However i'm not sure whether it's very dressy?.

Sounds promising teta. Off to look at Wrap sale now...

Have you looked in Cos?. Lots of longer knitwear in there. Not sure it's very dressy - but not scruffy either, I am quite tall and the wool dresses in there are quite short on me (and I am breastfeeding at the moment) so I wear them over skinny jeans.

Mint velvet have a lovely jumper called silver grey chiffon sleeve knit- sorry I can't link from my phone. I think its the chiffon sleeves that makes it that bit more dressy than a normal jumper.
