Late 40s curvy figure, size 14ish! Dress code either vintage or long dresses. Also, I broke my ankle a couple of weeks ago. I should be out of plaster by June but probably won't be able to manage high heels. Any suggestions welcome, please help!

Have a look at Lindy Bop, they have a FB page and website. They are not expensive and you will probably find something you can wear both for the Ball and maybe over the summer.

Try Collectif or Viviennes of Holloway.
