I'd like a long sleeved mini dress in a fairly heavy fabric,( not knitted) in a plain colour ( not black)or a funky print.

Any ideas pls

Doesn't look very short though

are you pregnant ?

sorry, just realised that the dress scorps linked to isn;t from the maternity range. Ignore me!

long sleeves, shortish skirt

there's a few t-shirty ones on the dorothy perkins website if that's what you want ?

What about this? Or this? Both red.

Really like this grey one.

also a few on the monsoon website in the fusion range

some of the longer tunic style tops are long enough to wear as a dress with thick tights if you are short enough.

also a whole section devoted to long sleeved dresses on the topshop site

Thanks for the suggestions. I definitely want a 60s style one rather than an 80s ashes to ashes style one, ( though Keeley Hawes looks fab in them)

Will go peruse the ts website, but would be grateful for a heads up on any others you've spotted.

I really like this one

french connection dress

In fact there are quite a long sleeved dresses on the FC website and most of them look quite short

What about some of these...all from the same site. Not much variation in colour but I just about love every one of them!

very 60's

pretty but maybe a bit wee girly?


a bit more colour in this w=one

this would look fab with opaques and platforms

I like this one but not the pattern groovy and the shape ofthisbut not that its knitted. Fussy bint, aren't I?

bet my boobs won't fit properly in the top bit though. Boden women have small tits
