    HI all x

    I'm looking to get 2 dresses in this style
    [​IMG]
    but in size 22 & 16. the size 16 is easy but the 22 not so much lol. Any ideas? Been looking at ebay & amazon but wondered if you knew of anywhere else I should look. I could prob make them if I had a pattern.

    Vivien of Holloway might be worth a try - they have dresses exactly like that one and go up to size 24 I think, but tend to have a limited number of sizes in stock. Worth a try though! :)

    Lol I'm not sure when want becomes need popple but if you find out then please let me know :lol:

    Vivien of Holloway is a good suggestion, also try Honeypie Boutique they do all theirs up to 24 and I know they are all in white on the front page but they will do them in any colour at all. If you wanted to do skirts and tops Marina Retro do amazing skirts at bargain prices and she will make any size you like :)

    custom made silk dresses are £100 (for the 22) and size 16 is £80. Can choose the colours, style, length etc. I've just had a dress made for a friends wedding and it's brilliant. I'm having my bridesmaids dresses from here too in violet.

    That style dress is fab, I'm not much use in helping find them, but I intend to steal some suggestions for my own bridesmaids! :)
