I would love a denim dress but it must;

Not be short (knee ish length)
Quite like the flared style as opposed to tight fitting
Long sleeves or some type of sleeves would be nice
I like indigo denim

Any ideas where I could find one?

Try fat face gap etc.

I just got the Gap dress Jcee linked to.
It's nice, but one sleeve kind of disintegrated after the 2nd wear confused.
It's not a seam, but the material proper, v odd.

I am going to have a moan about it to Gap although I don't know if they will do anything about it as it's worn.

Thats rubbish Pacific - hope you get your money back, sounds like you should. I'd been eyeing that one up too....<goes back to drawing board>

It is nice, good length, roomy enough to move, but still with a bit of a waist. I think I was unlucky. I did not notice a fault when I first wore it and now there is a 2 inch hole - I think I would've spotted that!

Pier One

I like that dress! Can I ask what sort of length it is? How thick is the denim?

Pinkflipflop Mon 01-Apr-13 10:36:41

I love the pier one denim dress but not the shade! It's very close to what I want except for the colour!

jamaisjedors Mon 01-Apr-13 12:37:57

I think Esprit have one...

I have an indigo denim shirt dress from boden which I love. It Has proper long sleeves (no three quarter rubbish) and is knee length on me. I'm 5ft 3 so might be too short if youre taller.

Not cheap but hobbs have this

Not indigo denim but saw this in Sainsburys at the weekend.

Pinkflipflop Mon 01-Apr-13 13:55:23

I really love the Hobbs one but it's a bit short at 84cm!

So hard to find one!

i've got the Sainsbury's i've. I am toying with dying it darker, but for £20 i'm not complaining. It looks and feels a lot pricier.

Boden version from 2 years ago. A few available on eBay. Lovely chambray fabric. Looks great layered with long sleeve tee beneath and boots for cooler weather; flip flops for summer. Sleeves are full length.

Again not cheap but fair trade here not sure why in euros though? My local fair trade shop sells this brand so you could look at stockist list.

GoingVerySlowlyMad Mon 01-Apr-13 17:04:52

Couldn't myself and picked the sainsburys one I linked earlier when I nipped in for a bag of carrots. It's actually much darker than it looks online. I don't usually get on with shirt dresses so will see what it looks like later!

DCIlouisemonroe Mon 01-Apr-13 17:20:48

Great Plains have one this season.

BrunellaPommelhorse Mon 01-Apr-13 17:56:37

oh the HObbs one is vile - dont do that, plus the Gap one no good for anyone with tits

RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Mon 01-Apr-13 18:01:51

The Hobbs one is v serving wench imho. I don't like full ones, as they can look quite buxom milkmaid on anybody with norks. I like the shirt dress ones, especially over the knee. Mine is ancient and from Monsoon of all places. I'm now looking for a lighter, chambray one.

BrunellaPommelhorse Mon 01-Apr-13 18:03:12

I dont like ones that look Cell block H type
you have to look amazing not to look liek you are on remand

BrunellaPommelhorse Mon 01-Apr-13 18:04:17

life imprisonment for eg

BrunellaPommelhorse Mon 01-Apr-13 18:05:04

Oasis its ok ish not sure abotu belt

PacificDogwood Mon 01-Apr-13 18:05:23

Ahem, I am blessed in the norks department (34G) and the Gap dress was fine from that point of view.

I am now feeling quite protective of it and want you to like it hmmgrin.
