Aged 6-7. Not bare. Have looked at all the usual suspects ... Boden, Joules, John Lewis, HoF, Gap, Next, White Company, Benetton. I'm probably just being too fussy but don't want sleeveless or tulle and need two of similar prettiness which is making it extra difficult.

Website recommendations very gratefully received!

I love this site for dresses for DD.

But I'm an unapologetic tulle-aholic grin .

Thanks OHoly - will have a look now.

Any other suggestions please fgrin?

I bought a gorgeous red velvet dress for dad (7) a month ago from BHS. Everyone comments in it and it is very classic.

Thank you ... Will have a look at websites this evening. I Love Gorgeous didn't have anything which caught my eye ... I want it to be wearable as a 'Sunday' dress for the rest of the winter hence not tulle.

JoJo Maman Bébé have some quite traditional dresses which are generally nice quality.

I know you mentioned John Lewis in your list but I love this John Lewis dress, we have it in pink with navy/cream stripy top and it is really lovely.

Sorry - discount my suggestion re JJMB - it only goes up to 5-6 years.

Have you thought about folksy/etsy? I have had some BEAUTIFUL dresses for DD that are totally unique. Plus your supporting small business smile

There is only one that I like on the website...Lotte (which is useless for me) and so I revert to skirts and blouses this year.

Thanks all. I have found something suitable cute and pretty. this .... now I just need to see if I can get it from the local stockist in the morning.

Thanks for all the suggestions.
