Similar to this one but in a size 16 (or 18).

Also, what sort of accessories would you wear with this sort of dress?
Dh & I go out once a year to a farmer's dinner and I'm not great at fashion.

Thank you smile

sad little bump....

I was so excited then as I have one I have only worn once and will never do so again but it isn't the right size.

Sorry but a bump for you.

sorry not velvet

GentleOtter Wed 07-Jan-09 17:55:02

Oh, thank you I fell in love with the Toast one but I cannot find anything similar with sleeves.

brimfull Wed 07-Jan-09 17:56:28

again similar but not velvet

GentleOtter Wed 07-Jan-09 17:57:31

ggirl - I really like that one. The only problem is - how would it sit over a post baby tum? I will be wearing Spanx but they don't help that much.

Here ?

Peeps on here have bought it and said it is good.

Someone really should buy me one. I've linked it often enough wink

this one is roomy around the waist but doesn't have long sleeves. I bought it a couple of months back for a wedding but had to return it as it was a bit big & by that time had found something I liked better.

Sorry. My internet connection would not work for ages.<miffed>

They are all really nice dresses and I like the Bravissimo style but am quite allergic to some material and tend to stay with cotton, velvet or linen.

What colour of tights with a red dress? Do you stick with red or black - same with shoes.
I wore a hideous green dress last year and looked like a toad as it was all wrong.

I would go for neutral coloured tights. The colour of your shoes would depend on your handbag. I don't think black is the best with red.
