Anyone know where I could find a dress like this in a grown up size?

My DD has this light denim shift dress. I would love it in adult size. Looking for a size 8. Any ideas where I could get one?

There is a similar one in Matalan at the moment
or I have done a search for denim pocket shift on shop style and there are lots here

Thank you! Matalan looks perfect but could be a bad shape from my experience. Also the Dorothy Perkins one .

I don't understand, they are the same shape as the pic you posted and you said you want? 🤔

Slightly lighter and a bit more swing than shift, although only £15

Maybe Seasalt

Prison in Australia?

Sorry I meant that Matalan clothes are not always a good fit for me. The DP one looks great !

BeachysSnowyWellieBoots Thu 16-Mar-17 11:27:35

Or this one?

My daughter has that dress, I have one from fat face that is the same but in a lighter denim

Ride Thu 16-Mar-17 11:28:54

Oh I like the 2nd sea salt one. The asos one is nice too but not exactly what I'm after.

Ride Thu 16-Mar-17 11:29:20

Oh I'll look up fat face one, lighter denim =better!

transitpan Thu 16-Mar-17 11:30:49

I also have this

Great with tights on a cooker day and will be nice with sandals when it's warmer

transitpan Thu 16-Mar-17 11:32:31

Fat face dress is called the Tenby dress, can't find it in stock anywhere though

transitpan Thu 16-Mar-17 11:34:18

This is it

Botanicbaby Thu 16-Mar-17 11:39:58

There's ones in Sainsbury's exactly like that.

Also try ASOS though beware as I find quality has gone down a lot lately unless it's my bad luck for breaking my 'less spending' commitment wink

I've got that dress! It's from New Look, bought it last year though.

<snort> at prison in Australia - OP, if you're still mystified, google image 'prisoner cell block H'

I like the dresses btw!

Ride Thu 16-Mar-17 13:53:01

Loved that fat face one but it's nowhere to be found! sad

CaroleService Thu 16-Mar-17 14:02:49

Mango but lighter blue

Nettletheelf Thu 16-Mar-17 14:06:06

Good one, Bloopbleep.

I think that particular style was worn in Wentworth by 'Pixie', the bigamist.

ChishandFips33 Thu 16-Mar-17 15:07:47

Asda has a similar one too

tigerrun Thu 16-Mar-17 15:12:17

This one is a lovely shape - slightly longer sleeve which appeals to me because of my enormously fat arms

If you are a size 8 then if it comes in next kids 15-16years it should fit you.
