Hi, I really need some help in finding my 2 year old something to wear on Christmas day.

I have visions of a festive colour and traditional design, perhaps smocked, in velvet or cord, maybe long sleeved or cap sleeved with a matching cardi.

I will spend up to 50 quid.

I remember getting an email from Zulily yonks ago with a weblink to a beautiful site full of traditional victorian type childrens clothes, the kind of thing you can wear black patent t-bars with smile

I've looked at Boden, Joules, House of Fraser, Sarah Louise, Polarn O pyret, Cachet Kids.... I'm out of ideas!

The nearest I've found is this sort of thing

I also don't want her to look like she's attending Hogmanay at a Highland Castle.....

Can anyone help please?

Thanks x

Thanks for the reply!

I don't really like sleeveless on toddlers, and the red one is nice, but.... not really special enough iyswim?

I'm wondering about this but think it might be a bit too Hogmanay.... its sleeveless but comes with a bolero.

Have you tried John Lewis and Mamas and Papas?

I wanted something similar when DD2 was 2 and ended up getting something off ebay (think it was a Next dress)

DD2 has this and it's bloody lovely.

Most of the Little Bird range is lovely, TBH.

this? in the sale too

MrsLettuce Thu 04-Dec-14 19:56:51

Ooh love that Tethers

DD2 looks VERY cute in it, even if I say so myself MrsL.

Oh thanks all!

I love the Little Bird one, I do like Jools' stuff generally, plus it gives me an excuse to buy the lovely red t bar shoes that Mothercare have at the moment.

The Betty Chocolate shop one is lovely too but I was hoping for a more Xmassy colour.... hmm could be persuaded!

I was wondering about this but don't think its warm enough.

I bet smile The biggest size is just too small for DD, grr.

But, yes
red with cream
love this colour
