I've seen a couple around and quite like the look of them in either white (stupid idea with a toddler and weaning baby) or navy. Any other ideas, or am I a year behind the trend?

Auto correct fail. Title is supposed to read "anglaise".

I think they're lovely and I'm glad they're doing the rounds in store again!

There's something similar at Warehouse right now, not sure if it will be your thing:

And much much pricier, and if only it was longer!....

Sleeveless & navy blue:

Gap have one

I have this from Gap.

Really lovely, but be warned, it's the first thing I've bought from Gap in a long while that comes up small.

I'm afraid I can't do links but I have seen a nice one on the all saints website, that looks lovely, not typical all saints IMHO.

Pier one with sleeves available in a lovely powder blue, black or white]] or sleeveless.

Navy one from Fat Face

Or Fat Face again, this one available in either white or navy.

Love the Warehouse one but suspect it would look awful on me. The Gap one looks like the first nice thing Gap have stocked for ages.

Agree re Gap dress. It is small and TERRIBLE on boobs, I so wanted to like it.

Gap one is good. I thought it came up a bit big, size down maybe just one size (as opposed to the ten sizes you normally have to size down in Gap). Very flattering, sold out in navy in my size. Was lovely in navy. Yes Remus first nice thing in ages in gap.

love the Gap one, anyone familiar with sizing?

CardiCorgi Fri 05-Apr-13 06:52:43

Ooh, thanks everyone, Toasted those links are good.
The gap one is my favourite so far although the M&S one also looks as though it could be good (or very frumpy on me if it fits wrong). I've also found some broderie anglaise fabric online, with the idea of taking the features I like best and making my own.

I tried the warehouse one and oh my lord my boobs in it - not good - not good at all.

The gap one didn't work on me - think the skirt was a bit too a line.

I love broderie anglaise and am always on the look out for a nice dress or skirt in that fabric.

This sun dress from Tesco? Comes in a pretty lemon yellow too.

Gap have 20% off full price items today. Use GAPSTYLE.

MrsCB, so the skirt isn't straight, pencil fit? I wish they'd make t more obvious in model photo. Is the sizing ok would you say?

MrsCampbellBlack Fri 05-Apr-13 09:22:34

I got the cotton pique patterned version of the gap one which is smaller sizing. I'd say the gap one is their normal sizing and I felt the skirt was quite a line particularly when viewed from behind.

MrsRogerSterling Fri 05-Apr-13 12:00:25

I love this wrap one but the price is ridiculous...

GoingVerySlowlyMad Fri 05-Apr-13 12:02:30

Uniqlo,Matalan and another Matalan. Loving the uniqlo one in navy, very tempted!

TapselteerieO Fri 05-Apr-13 14:36:21

MrsRoger the emerald version of that is so lovely but a little too see through!

NewChoos Fri 05-Apr-13 14:39:31

Love the gap dress - if only wasn't massive with bump.

TSSDNCOP Fri 05-Apr-13 16:08:54

The Gap one is gorgeous.

How small does it come up?

ToastedTeacakes Fri 05-Apr-13 16:24:51

Thanks MrsCB, it does look lovely though!
