How about this?

Greengardenpixie Sat 01-Nov-14 11:36:03

Yes, i quite like that actually. The only thing that would be better would be if it wasnt that kind of crushed velvet. Still its good for the price smile Thanks!

Anyone else seen anything in velvet..preferrably not dry clean!

MrsLettuce Sat 01-Nov-14 20:19:11

this? the red is also nice. dry clean though, TBH at that price I'd risk a silk wash.

Its exactly the right type of velvet but im not fussed for the batwing looking sleeves.

Something more like this shape:

Thanks for looking for it. I cant believe how difficult something like that is to find especially around xmas time!

MrsLettuce Sat 01-Nov-14 20:39:10

I know! There's a distinct lack of velvet about this year <sob>

Any clue on budget?

Greengardenpixie Sat 01-Nov-14 20:43:55

Well there was one on the toast website and it was £160 odd. That was a bit pricey but im happy just to consider anything about £100?..or so.

Oh and it was dry clean which totally puts me off. I would rather it was a cheapish velour than have to dry clean silk velvet!

MrsLettuce Sat 01-Nov-14 20:54:16

might this do?

OOOh. ^the^ dress in purple, 14. 12
