Yes it is.

I want one with long or 3/4 sleeves.

Not jersey.

In a size 16.

Not too pricy.

Can you help?

I thought as much.

This isn't going well.

I got a beautiful two layered on just now from Next, but it doesn't have sleeves. Hang on, I shall try to learn how to do links.

I win

BobblyGussets Tue 23-Apr-13 21:16:33 this one. Looks much more special and expensive than the price tag.

Oh God no please no return to the bloody nightie look.

Bit of jersey, bit of morticia

I saw a woman wearing one last year that was nearly grazing the floor and it looked really nice.

She held herself nicely though and was very well groomed, I think it helps. Plus the fabric draped beautifully.

Sorry, it's jersey.

tethersend Tue 23-Apr-13 21:43:04

God, there's bugger all out there...

I want a relatively fitted one, but not too clingy, no crazy drapey bits of fabric masquerading as sleeves. Apart from on STD's first link which I am buying at once, obv.

I definitely have to have sleeves- I don't do shrugs and cardis. They make me upset.

Thanks all for trying. It's slim pickings.

Why not jersey? The Baukjen one looks lovely; the others are polyester monstrosities.

sirtoffeedoris Tue 23-Apr-13 21:57:31

*takes a bow* knew I'd sussed it

just linking willeeee nilleee now


actually meant to link to this one earlier (I like them. I am trying to find an occasion where I could carry off looking like a penitent medieval nun. If there was such a thing, and faffing about in a hairshirt wasn't just a job for the boys at that time)

this from Monsoon.

I do have quite a few vintage ones, but fancy a new one. I'll do a proper ebay trawl, thanks.

Remus, ideally I'd like cotton, but that just doesn't exist. I don't mind a bit of polyester grin I've got a couple of jersey maxis and I'm just not feeling them. So to speak.

Eliza22 Wed 24-Apr-13 10:03:27

Love the Baukjen one but alas, I'm have too many "curves" for it now I've hit the menopause!

tethersend Wed 24-Apr-13 11:24:22

Any other ideas...?

tethersend Wed 24-Apr-13 17:17:32

Oh. The thread died on its arse.

Probably no point bumping.

Nobody cares <wails>

Maybe it wasn't time after all...

scarlet76 Wed 24-Apr-13 17:37:01

I want a petite length one
size 6 or 8
Preferably sleeveless
preferably cotton
black, purple or striped

tethersend Wed 24-Apr-13 17:43:48

You're not helping, scarlet!

coffeeinbed Wed 24-Apr-13 19:12:55

Well, I was so desperate I made myself one last year.

Which isn't helping either.
