I am looking for something similar to this, for my daughter. She bought it for her graduation, but as I was ironing it the fabric sorta melted, so we need a similar replacement.

She bought it in the black Friday sales, so her budget is around £80, but hardly ever wears dresses, so less would be better

Her requirements are

1. BLUE( she loves blue)
2. Something that wont clash with her hood which is forest green and white
3. Heavy enough fabric that it wont get pulled up by the weight of the hood.

A bit over budget but lovely:

Within budget and the right colour:

Have you taken it back to NEXT for your money back? That's not really fit for purpose. Unless it said cool iron and you had it on full heat.

I went into next, and we can return it for refund, but we cant exchange it because they are out of size 10s sad

The iron mark is only 5cmx7cm and near her hip hip, so it probably wont be seen under her graduation gown. My daughter wants to wear it burn and all.

I would rather she just got another un-marked dress
