Looking for a teal wrap or shirt dress

Fancy something like this:
rockabilly dress
(apparently they are a really useless company otherwise I might be tempted by this one)

Was most surprised when google threw up this as a suggestion:
handknit wrap dress

Does anyone have any better suggestions? I'm thinking something for festive occasions not that I have any lined up

it's not helping my dress search but look at this one: big bird.
I'm guessing it gets chilly in Bulgaria as she seems to have a lot of very big garments.

That first one is gorgeous - I can almost hear the crisp cotton! The Etsys are just... well, I'm speechless.

This meets the brief but is possibly too casual.

I love the first one but at that price my expectations wouldn't be high.

I found a whole facebook page dedicated to the awfulness of TB Dress unfortunately. I was rather disappointed.

I had found that one burnished but was hoping for something a bit 'prettier'.

Oh god, sorry for my epic link.

This one has a print in cherry blossom but is only available in 12.

Sorry, I forgot the useful information. I'm a shortish pear, sized 14-16. I'd ideally like to spend no more than £40 but I'd go up to £50 at a push.

I love the cherry blossom one Dobeedo but sadly wouldn't fit into a 12. I'll have a look at the others when I'm back online later on.

Thanks for your thoughts so far ...

too plain?

Pantsalive Wed 25-Nov-15 18:36:16

Thanks purrito but sadly all out of my budget or just a bit neat looking. I'd definitely prefer something with a hint of party, maybe 50sish, like the original.

Ubik1 it's really interesting as I'd looked at that Warehouse one and dismissed it as being too plain but the woman wearing it on the Very website makes it look prettier. It's still not quite as partyish as I'd hoped though.

PS if you haven't looked at the handknit link, it really is worth it ...

Oh crappitty crap in a moment of middle of the night insomnia I ordered off tb dress :-O

Silverstreaks Wed 25-Nov-15 18:52:12

I've been looking at mohair fetishism because of this thread. Very colourful!

What about this, Lindy Bop Vivi
More green than teal though. They have it in lots of colours

Ooh BreadstickBev, do let me know what it's like when it comes. There are some very good reviews on there so it might be lovely [hopeful face]

Silver I did wonder if that was a thing. The furry tights definitely look like they need some use other than just popping to the shops.

kranky I've seen that dress and love it. Just wish they did it in a proper teal. They do have other dresses in teal so I thought I might write to them and suggest it.

Thanks for the suggestions so far everyone. I shall just keep searching whilst snuggled up in my mohair cocoon.

How about this www.lindybop.co.uk/sale-c49/dresses-sale-c50/bella-teal-swing-dress-p2172

Pantsalive Fri 27-Nov-15 10:24:25

Not keen on that one, I'm afraid, Raven.
Sorry, I'm being really fussy.
I really want the TB one to be lovely!

RavenQueen Fri 27-Nov-15 10:33:00

I don't know whether they'll have any teal dresses but have a look at Hell Bunny, they do some lovely dresses x

Pantsalive Sat 28-Nov-15 09:13:56

Thanks Raven, I'll have a look.

This. With a 20% off Black Friday deal it comes to about £125 in sterling ...

Fabulous dress Cadburys but way over my budget and much too fitted sadly.
