Any ideas of something for DD (2) to wear to a funeral a week on Monday??

Basically, that's it.

It's my Grandad's funeral a week on Monday and I have nothing remotely appropriate for DD to wear. She had a really nice deep lilac dress from Vertbaudet which she wore to a couple of funerals last winter but it's too small and ATM it all seems to be summery stuff in the shops.

Any ideas gratefully received smile

Sorry for your loss, Tigerschick.

Would something like this be suitable, with a cardigan in case the weather is unkind? e=UTF8&node=56935031&m=A2BO0OYVBKIQJM&keywords=&mnSBrand=core&size=9&rh=&page=

Thanks Bette - that would be about right I think. I've got an M&S reasonably close so will give it a look.

It just seems quite suitable - darkish colours, but not too sombre.
And she'd be able to wear it again.
There are some other pretty sun dresses on the same site too.

I hope the funeral goes as well as these things can. smile

And bumping for anyone with other clothing suggestions.

Sorry to hear about your Grandad, tigerschick.

Maybe this?

This is quite dark too.

Thanks again - funeral will be as these things are ... Grandad was old and ill so it's sort of a blessing that he isn't suffering anymore.

I also like this on that website. Will have to see if they have either of them in the shop ...
