I've been trying to find dd (4.6) a denim dress for spring and cannot seem to track a nice one down. I bought this one from Next yesterday but it just doesn't suit her shape and it's hard to get on and off too.
I've had pinafores before and they go with everything but the other ones in Next are either out of stock or a bit plain and/or stiff. Wasn't really wanting to spend £18 on one, but I can't even find one on ebay I like. It's got to be soft, not too narrow so she can run round in it and a bit of embroidery/decoration but no ruffles! Have searched online but cannot find much choice (perhaps because I am so fussy?). Can anyone help please?
Ah I came to suggest the Next one. I agree it is quite narrow at the top but suits my 2yr old dd at the moment as she's still in nappies so the flare out is perfect. Not sure I've seen any others lately.
I didn't really go for the John Lewis one, sorry. Too plain & I don't like dungaree-style (yes, I know, I did say I was fussy!). JoJo didn't have anything and I think are now too small for DD anyway. Gap have this little number which I really like but will it look good layered up with long-sleeve t and leggings?? I'm not v.good at dd dressing, she has 3 brothers. Don't think I've seen anything in Tesco or Asda, will try to get to Sainsbos. thanks, all! Anyone else?
thanks again for suggestions. La Redoute ones were quite sweet, I'm considering those. Mothercare nothing in dd's size. Zara often comes up trumps but those dresses all seem very grown up for a 4 year old as does much of their stuff. I'm considering just swapping the Next dress I have for 2 sizes up in the hope that she can get it on and it will fit her better but she suits dresses that don't stick to her tummy and this one does! Shall keep on looking!
