Please help me find this dress for my 3 year old

I know this board usually deals with adult clothes but you guys are often very good at hunting things down.

My Dd is 3 and has sensory issues with clothes. It causes a lot of stress for us all. She tried on a dress at a friend's house and loved it. She wore it for hours and has mentioned it everyday since.

The problem is, the dress is from Australia and nothing has come up on eBay. I am looking for something as similar as possible.

Can anyone help?

Do you think she would go for something similar?

Sorry missed your last paragraph!

How about this?

Can you describe it? Is that a velvet bodice? Net skirt?

It's tulle and has little gems on the skirt. The bodice part is quite tight and it has a prom style skirt.

I got a dress sort of like that for my 2 year old on zulily a few months ago.

I like the H&M one. I could get the straps altered if she doesn't like them.

I so want her to have something to wear that isn't inside out pyjamas sad

Sorry, zero clue about how to do links!!

Squiffy01 Thu 12-Jan-17 21:46:37

Do you know what shop it is from in Australia and how long ago it was purchased?

naichick Thu 12-Jan-17 21:47:45

It looks like the little cotton on ones if I'm thinking of the right shop!

I've just had a look on Amazon under "party dress for girls black" it brought up some nice ones, examples attached. Good luck

Was going to say it looks like something from cottonon

The Cotton On one that naichick linked is gorgeous!

Have you asked the parents what brand is on the label?

Paddingtonthebear Thu 12-Jan-17 23:13:23

On Zulily at the moment

Ah the original dress is from cotton on.
