A challenge: I'm going to give you a rubbish description of a dress

... I fell in love with on a woman across the road today.

The easy bits:
* navy jersey
* knee length

Not so easy:
* it had some unusual draping going on. It looked as though the bottom of the front of the dress had been picked up and knotted at the bustline. The hem was straight though, so I think that there must have been masses of extra material to allow for the bit tied to the bustline. <Do not know how to describe this at all, waffle, waffle, waffle>

It looked very cool and modern but easy to wear.

Googling navy jersey knot dress has got me NOWHERE. I need to call in the big guns....

Karen millen? In grey though

Picture now on my profile page, fingers crossed.

It's not assymetric, the draping runs from the centre of the bottom hem.

Why didn't I just ask her?!?!

Ooh I have a dress like that! (Unhelpful) it had a floral print and was from River Island.

MrsNoodleHead Thu 25-Jul-13 23:54:04

KingJoffrey, can you see my profile?

KingJoffrey Thu 25-Jul-13 23:55:12

Yes I know what you mean now. To google!

Something like this but blue? It could be an old dress.

Phase eight have frocks like that

angeltulips Thu 25-Jul-13 23:58:16

I have a couple of cos dresses like that - try there?

MrsNoodleHead Thu 25-Jul-13 23:59:38

Ah, Twirlyhot, yes - that kind of thing. Well done! The jersey looked lovely and heavy though.

Like this one? it's a maternity one which I like

If it is like this - will link a couple I've seen on eBay which are similar but not maternity ( and also not £139!)

Chocolateteabag Fri 26-Jul-13 00:02:11

Also a maternity dress in blue red or black but £65

MrsNoodleHead Fri 26-Jul-13 00:03:32

Sorry, nothing doing in Cos or P8...

KnittedWaffle Fri 26-Jul-13 00:03:44

I was thinking phase eight too. I had a look earlier though and couldn't find anything. Off to look again.

Chocolateteabag Fri 26-Jul-13 00:04:01

This is the one I saw on ebay

MrsNoodleHead Fri 26-Jul-13 00:04:29

Nope, sorry Chocolate Teabag, thanks for looking though.

Twirlyhot Fri 26-Jul-13 00:35:30

This is 7 years old

Twirlyhot Fri 26-Jul-13 00:37:27

Didn't work. Third dress down but very old link

KnittedWaffle Fri 26-Jul-13 00:48:07

Dorothy Perkins no up to date link though

The dresses you can tie in different ways are "twobirds" dresses I think.

I have one in red, got it a couple of years ago from Bon Prix. <unhelpful>

all saints?

It could be the Butter by Nadia wrap dress, that's convertible into lots of different shapes.

Vibbe Fri 26-Jul-13 13:48:41

Could it be the Emami dress? It's one of those dresses that can be worn in several ways.
You'll find loads of pictures of it on google.
