Dress help for dd please

DD1, 14, really wants a dress like this -
but a dress, not a top.

Any ideas where we can get one? The only ones we've seen are Ralph lauren and Tommy Hilfiger (sp?) and ludicrously expensive. She is 5'7 and a size 8.

Thanks in advance.

Don't think you linked to the right item.......

janeite Sun 21-Jun-09 18:07:25

Stripe polo t-shirt - she wants one that shape but a dress.

BethAndHerBrood Sun 21-Jun-09 18:54:41

Does it have to be stripey?

They quite often have plain ones in sports soccer. Aren't they called tennis dresses?

i have a stripe bodycon dress from topshop if that helps?

missblythe Sun 21-Jun-09 19:28:23

right shape, but no stripes

janeite Sun 21-Jun-09 19:39:50

It has to be striped, she says!

But thanks for the help so far.

without collar

some in new look teen range but all with no collars!

janeite Sun 21-Jun-09 20:27:49

Thanks for looking Clure - but she doesn't like those! Shame, as I like the price!

Clure Sun 21-Jun-09 20:58:00

this goes up to age 14 though maybe too small?

janeite Sun 21-Jun-09 20:58:46

Thanks Clure - saw that on earlier but they only have it in tiny sizes.

Clure Sun 21-Jun-09 21:13:39

have you tried places like matalan, primark and asda?

janeite Sun 21-Jun-09 21:18:42

Sorry - don't 'do' Primark or Asda and never been to Matalan.

Buy 2 tops and weld them together. Gok would be impressed, particularly if you went obtained embellishments from a habadashery.

ThePhantomPlopper Sun 21-Jun-09 21:30:18

Do you have a Ralph Lauren outlet near you?

DH bought me one from an outlet for Christmas last year <shakes head>.

Anyway they are quite cheap in outlets.

ThePhantomPlopper Sun 21-Jun-09 21:30:55

Hmm I used the word outlet far too many times in that post.

janeite Sun 21-Jun-09 21:32:35

No outlets as far as I know! But just about every high street shop you could think of!

Ewe Sun 21-Jun-09 21:33:06

Would either of the top two here be any good?

janeite Sun 21-Jun-09 21:34:16

Thanks Ewe - but she wants a collar. And there is no way I'd pay that much for a teen's dress!

cookielove Sun 21-Jun-09 21:40:43

cute but prob not right

prob to grown up


it's stripes


janeite Sun 21-Jun-09 21:47:14

Thanks Cookie - but none of those are right either! I think beth's description of them as tennis dresses is probably right but I have failed to find any except the Boden one that look anything like the right thing at the right price.

cookielove Sun 21-Jun-09 21:57:07

like this?

cookielove Sun 21-Jun-09 21:57:54

that link may not work try this if it doesn't

janeite Sun 21-Jun-09 21:59:20

Just like that! But no good at all as only UK methinks. But I will look in gap and see if they do them. Thanks.
