Long sleeved everyday dresses for little girls . . .
yes, was having same dilemma last week - dd(3) has also just reached the stage of eschewing jeans & tops
Found myself in Asda the other day after ds(1) had poo disaster of epic proportions forcing me to wheel him down the hill from the Brora clearance sale dressed in nothing but a disposable nappy and Thomas Tank wellies (earning me the contempt of all the Sloane-y bugaboo pushing horsey types) to re-outfit him in George. While there, picked up one of those knitted dresses as linked to by Martha, as well as two dress/leggings sets - also very Bodenesque: think navy & white polka dot leggings with red l/s dress over top with appliqued navy/white polka dot flower motif - £8 the set!!!
also had a blitz on ebay and bought her loads of Next, Gap, Vertabaudet & Zara, spending no more than £45 in the process (inc P&P)
She looks adorable and is ever so chuffed with her new wardrobe
I get a lot of wear out of dd's dresses by buying short sleeved. In the winter I put a long sleeved top underneath and a cardi over the top. Tights or leggings underneath in winter. Means she can wear them all year round.
I agree, Asda do some lovely bits for everyday wear - I find Sainsburys and Tesco a bit meh
