I'm looking for a casual spring/summer dress with this sort of style:

hirigin-Autumn-Women-Floral-Bandage-Body

Specifically -

  • Knee-length or mid-calf length.
  • Long sleeves or 3/4 or elbow-length sleeves
  • Fuller skirt (not a bodycon or tight pencil skirt)
  • Pastels and/or floral prints (any sort, not necessarily the pattern above)
  • No bare shoulders/bare tummy

I have a few sleeveless ones from Hilly Haalan, and a few winter dresses with long sleeves, but nothing that's longer-skirt, long-sleeved and summery all at the same time.

Maitreya fit, and I'm not picky about if it's new or old, as long as it's actually Maitreya-rigged and not just standard classic sizes. Or *shudders* system layers and prim skirts.

If you can go a little above the knee, there's a template that a lot of stores have used that you might like. Here are a few examples:

https://marketplace.secondlife.com/p/Albino-Peacock-April-Shirtdress-Aqua/21309726 (found in MP search just now, they have some other color packs too)

https://marketplace.secondlife.com/p/Piper-Moda-Paris-in-Springtime-dress-skirt-shirt-outfit-Maitreya-Slink/17760334 (I own this one)

https://marketplace.secondlife.com/p/AmAzINg-CrEaTiOnS-Rock-and-Droll-Dress-Skirt-Top-Coat-16/14847516 (I think this one may have been free inworld at some point, might be worth a look)

Belle Epoque hits a similar aesthetic pretty often, though an exact dress isn't coming to mind, and I also have one from Shifuku called "Vintage" that I think also fits this style though it shows some cleavage (though in a way that's easy to cover with BOM).

@Rowan Amorethank you! (that's me lol!). I didn't think of it because the sleeves aren't long. I did a green version too.

Ha!  I didn't even notice you were the creator!

If you do it in black and white polka dots, I'll buy it.

That first one is really nice, out of all the suggestions so far it is my favourite. A little on the short side but otherwise just what I'm looking for.

Belle Epoque is one I thought of before, already have some of theirs, but again, everything with the right sort of skirt, is sleeveless.

You might also try AlaFolie.

I still.love her older flexi clothes.  Beautiful dresses.  I left her a message on her Flickr about Reborn sizing for her newer items.  There are a couple of pant outfits I'd love to have.
