Help! I'm trying to find some pretty loose summer dresses, short or cap sleeves, cooler material like cotton, poly cotton or viscose. Knee or mid calf length.
I've been looking online and can't find anything. All I can find are horrible colours or patterns

Try QVC's website ,there are a few ranges that might suit you ,Nina Leonard was on yesterday with some lovely plain dresses and you can wear them and even wash them and still send them back if you're not happy with them

I wish I could send you a photo of the dress I'm wearing now, from Indonesia.
It's as you describe. More of a long shift dress, like this but longer and slightly longer sleeves:
Mine has a buttoned neck opening too.

If you are interested these are the dresses that I bought in George at Asda for £18 each. (I have also posted pics on the dresses/knickers? thread). I keep washing and wearing them without the need for ironing. They are lovely and cool and don't stick to me when I sweat. They don't have sleeves but the shoulders are wide enough to wear an ordinary bra.

That looks good Shysal do wish we had an Asda anywhere near.

I bought a nice dress from Debenhams , the MantaRay line, have a look on the website?

Made in Italy range are loose linen or cotton dresses - very cool and comfy.

Roses, my nearest Asda for clothes and homeware is at the Cowley Centre in the John Allen bit. Not sure whereabouts you are, know you live locally.

You can buy the dress from Asda on line. It looks nice and made of cotton, as well.

Thank you all so much. Off to look at Asda :-)
