Has anyone got anything positive to say about these dresses?
I usually delay, dither, miss the offers and then wish....

I don't want the double layer jersey as I have a Jigsaw one identical and don't like it , and I also have a Boden knitted dress that's still going strong.

Was looking at the merino dress ( plain colours) and wondering...

is there any thing there that ISN'T frumpy and would suit a 45+ person who wants to still look fashionable-ish?

Is there is linky?

I don't like any of them.

link please - Boden isn't letting me on at the moment.

I sent the double layer jersey dress back - I thought it was poor quality.

what do we think about the Marvellous Merino?

Would the sixties knitted dress work if you are not Twiggy?

The blue merino one is lovely.

Oh there's another double layer jersey dress - don't like. (I was talking about the sale one before)

cornsillk Thu 23-Jul-09 13:48:34

That hotchpotch dress is hideous.

Also, are these knitted dresses in anyway....itchy? Am a tad sensitive...

cornsillk Thu 23-Jul-09 13:55:24

Yes I find knitted things itchy as well.

mrsmerryweather Thu 23-Jul-09 14:33:19

I am very sensitive smile but I do have a wool dress from a couple of years back and it's fine - not itchy at all. Having said that, I do wear my vest ( of course) and a slip under it...but no, it's soft.

cornsillk Thu 23-Jul-09 14:43:12

The white company wool stuff is lovely and so non-itchy. Not sure yet about Boden.

I love the colourblock shift and the flattering knitted dress.

I like the Henley dress too BUT it needs to be slightly shorter and more fitted.

Merino dress is dull but I much prefer it in the plains. The patterns are rank.

Will let you know - I ordered rather too many and they should be here today.

mrsmerryweather Fri 24-Jul-09 10:20:18

I have the summer colour block shift and the wnter one is the same except it has sleeves.

It's lovely, but quite formal and have to admit I have not worn it yet...was too dressy for hols overseas, even as evening wear (??) so hoping I can wear it with a cardi in the autumn/winter.
