Is time for a maxi dress thread?

Yes it is.

I want one with long or 3/4 sleeves.

Not jersey.

In a size 16.

Not too pricy.

Can you help?

And monsoon dress linked to earlier is cotton!

OP, no maxi dress, but lots of nice dresses with sleeves?-

tethersend Wed 24-Apr-13 20:43:53

Anything here?

I want something for summery days... So casual. I like nice, unfussy clothes. I am checking out the petite ranges but nothing has grabbed me yet.

tethersend Wed 24-Apr-13 19:43:07

I think it's the lack of nice maxis that's the problem, scarlet... What kind of thing are you after? Might as well use the thread for something grin

scarlet76 Wed 24-Apr-13 19:31:36

Sorry tethers
I always thought it was my lack of height that made it difficult to find them.

Awww I bought a nice jersey striped one in primark and a black one in asda grin no sleeves though

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

Which isn't helping either.

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

You're not helping, scarlet!

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 17:17:32

Oh. The thread died on its arse.

Probably no point bumping.

Nobody cares <wails>

Maybe it wasn't time after all...

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

Any other ideas...?

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 09:55:25

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.

this from Monsoon.

*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)

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

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.

coffeeinbed Tue 23-Apr-13 21:41:16

Sorry, it's jersey.

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.

sirtoffeedoris Tue 23-Apr-13 21:30:24

Bit of jersey, bit of morticia

sirtoffeedoris Tue 23-Apr-13 21:27:45

Peachy keen

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