A challenge: I'm going to give you a rubbish description of a dress

(54 Posts)

... I fell in love with on a woman across the road today.

The easy bits:
* navy jersey
* knee length

Not so easy:
* it had some unusual draping going on. It looked as though the bottom of the front of the dress had been picked up and knotted at the bustline. The hem was straight though, so I think that there must have been masses of extra material to allow for the bit tied to the bustline. <Do not know how to describe this at all, waffle, waffle, waffle>

It looked very cool and modern but easy to wear.

Googling navy jersey knot dress has got me NOWHERE. I need to call in the big guns....

Omg, was it me? I was wearing a navy jersey drape dress today. Knee length, straight hem, lightweight, loop of fabric at neck. Fat Face about 2 yrs ago.

That Dorothy Perkins number is the closest; albeit I think that the DP one the drapey bit draws from the whole of the skirt section, rather than a vertical loop purely from the hem. I also don't think it had a V-neck but that doesn't matter as it wasn't the neck line which drew me to it. I've put in a bid: thanks Finlaysmum.

It's definitely not the multiway type dress - all of their loopy bits relate to the bust section and straps.

Threepiece I will have a look at FF; I actually saw it on Thursday evening in Central London, in case anyone wants to put their hand up...?
