can anyone help?

ok its not so much an emergency as a genuine need - like air

ok maybe not like air - but fairly close

joe borwons has one - but i think i am too old for it.

i also don't like high necks as i have big tits.

thank you, thank you, thank you

its life and death

This Asos one?

Have tried H&M? They normally have good basics like a simple pinafore dress.

Too high on the neck possibly?

Lilyloo Mon 21-Sep-09 13:25:40

why , it would be fine with polo neck and thick tights under
i am ordering it when i get paid smile

i am ordering the browns one when i get paid - i am convinced!

DillyTantay Mon 21-Sep-09 13:37:49

sorry was finding it

Tortington Mon 21-Sep-09 13:39:45

there are a few dresses that might match pinafore in kew but they are rather shapeless and hugely expensive i find.

however thanks for suggesting

thanks for the link. it's is tempting but i think i need a waist so people don't ask me when i am 'due'
