any colour? can it be fitted or would you like loose fitting? was thinking phase eight have some lovely dresses with sleeves

tricky... not many summer weight dresses with sleeves, except a few in black which is a bit of a no-no at weddings. Would a dress without long sleeves be ok so long as you had a jacket over ?

I'm not sure what kind of styles you would like but there's

floral bodycon effort from asos

long hippy chic from free people (my favourite but not to everyone's taste)

simple jersey dress from kaliko- but it's on the knee

lace on the knee in a couple of different colours as well

No sleeves but beautiful
Not quite what youre looking for but think it's easily wearable- would like great with a draped shawl or light flowing cardigan.

not a long sleeve (not sure if there's a length of sleeve preferred...and black... But it's the kind of dress that would work for multiple occassions....

I thought you were doubting my style ( which you may well do when you see it!)

Hi beeny you might find something on here. Many if them are above knee but there are a few. Try putting in your own criteria on the sitesmile

mrscumberbatch Wed 10-Jul-13 23:47:49

Haha Ninja it's a fab choice actually... the first one was a bit experimental!

The Guardian have compiled a list of dresses with sleeves. As you're not hugely tall, some of the knee length ones might go under and end up midi length.
