I know the brief was for sheer, but haven't found too many - \link{\this} struck me as being a bit on the frilly side, as did \link{\this.} \link{\This} one is actually pretty cool, and \link{\this} seems perfect except for the tie-up front.
\link{\This} might be sheer - hard to tell from the pic, and is also available in \link{\white}.

Further post with non-sheer ones will follow as it seems you can't put more than ten links in a post without weirdness ensuing.

Here are some miscellaneous non-sheer ones -
one in \link{\satin},
three lineny ones \link{\here}, \link{\here (pink)} and \link{\here},
some broderie-anglais type cotton ones \link{\here} (this is my favourite), and more \link{\here}, \link{\here} and \link{\here},
and a brown cotton one \link{\here.}
And a \link{\lace} one for good measure.

how do you link to one item?

MrsBadger · 12/06/2006 11:44

Do you think the green dotty one or the brown lacy one could look kind of funky chic on a 39 yo? or am I hoping for too much??

MrsBadger · 12/06/2006 11:49

think the brown one could work as boho chic, but the cutesy collar on the green one pushes it too far IMO.

actually I'm not sure even a svelte twenty-something could pull off the green one - I certainly couldn't, however young I was...

OP posts:
tracyk · 12/06/2006 11:55

not even if it was teamed with a retro stripe top underneath? I really love the colour.

FrannyandZooey · 12/06/2006 12:05

Oh you are so sweet

You have made my morning Mrs Badger :)

but you know, cod was right to get hacked off with me, I am such a fussy blighter. I will go and have a look now and let you know. But if they are all the Monsoon ones I am afraid there was only one I would actually wear and it was far too expensive

Gloworm · 12/06/2006 12:08

FaZ do you like \link{\cheesecloth} ?

and does it have to be a shrug? or would a blouse type one suffice?

FrannyandZooey · 12/06/2006 12:11

OOOh ooh ooh you are getting really, really close here.

no 1 is perfect material, hideous detailing

2 - gorgeous but wrong colour, I never wear white

3) spotty one a definitel possibility. A bit smarter than I wanted, but maybe...

4) yes lovely except for tie

5) hmm not sure it's sheer

ah just looked at white on - it isn't, is it?

But these are FAB fab fab and cod you didn't show me any of those!

will look at next lot of links

FrannyandZooey · 12/06/2006 12:13

I do like cheesecloth but I don't like that one.

Nearest so far is Mrs B's no 2 (fnaar), or no 4, either of which I would consider buying if it was black or another colour I like. (although £20 is more my price really than £35 Shock)

FrannyandZooey · 12/06/2006 12:14

Gloworm a blouse would be ok, but I really want just a tiny bit to cover my shoulders

FrannyandZooey · 12/06/2006 12:16

OOH ooh I like the brown cotton one and it's on sale :)

What do you reckon though? Is it a bit frilly?

Cod · 12/06/2006 12:17

i told oyu to look ta monsoon fgs

FrannyandZooey · 12/06/2006 12:18

LOL, this is a Debenhams one cod

Mrs Badger, Malory will be pleased with you :)

FrannyandZooey · 12/06/2006 13:47

Mrs Badger :(

I just went to buy the chocolate one

they don't have it in my size or the next size up

But oh it was good to know they do exist :)

MrsBadger · 12/06/2006 14:27

hurrah that there was one you liked amongst the multitude Grin
bum that they don't have it in your size Sad

may be worth going into a local Debenhams and asking which stores have it in stock (they can look it up on the computer). Then ring any/all of the stores that do have it and pay by credit card over the phone - think they charge £2 or something for postage, but they will do it - got hold of a shirt DH was desparate for this way.

Um, franny, you're handy aren't you? I'd think a shrug would be pretty bloody easy to make, wouldn't it? (I'd knit one, if I needed one, but I don't, because they're mindbogglingly pointless. Oh yes, this is why I don't come in style. )

MrsBadger · 12/06/2006 14:45

am hunting the brown one on ebay etc - few others popped up too:

\link{\may be too white}
\link{\ties, and may be too small}
\link{\may be too spangly} but all sizes available
\link{\may be too pricey}, \link{\so may this}
\link{\this comes in a 10 or a 16}

HarpsichordCarrier · 12/06/2006 14:47

I think a crocheted one would be nicer than a knitted one

NotQuiteCockney · 12/06/2006 14:49

I don't do crocheting, but have nothing against it personally. :-P

NotQuiteCockney · 12/06/2006 14:50

Oh, and by a knitted one, I did mean a lacy sort of knitted one, not just something simple. Obviously.

FrannyandZooey · 12/06/2006 14:51

MrsB, I will ring them, that is a fab idea.

I don't want knitted or crocheted, this has all been covered in the other thread Angry

NQC I can't knit or sew or...erm, do much, in fact.

I will peruse all these new links when I get back, you are marvellous MrsB.
