I've got a dp work daytime presentation to go to and can't find a suitable dress.

I want a fitted pencil dress - but not bodycon/stretchy material. Needs sleeves - captype preferably. Needs to be knee length.

Probanly black or patterned black so it can go with a black coat/jacket and shoes/tights.

Budget - probably stretch to £75.

I've looked everywhere!

Help me!

If you really stretch it to £85 Get Cutie have their lovely pencil dress in the sale. The jackdaw print is unusal but not too OTT.
They resale well on ebay so you could pass it on afterwards.

Have you looked at the Jaeger outlet?

I've just bought this one which is ridiculously flattering, but selling out fast.

Thanks - like the m and s styles but think they maybe more worky than occasiony, but will delve in the site!

Hadn't looked at precis - like the style. What is the sizing like?

Yet to look at Jaegar grin

Thanks all for helping!

I think Précis is slightly on the large side for size. I've just got that dress in an 8 when I'm normally a 10 or 12.

I've only bought one dress from them, but I'd say it was quite generous.
