Since posting an Isabi dress on Day 19 of the 204 Dresses with Sleeves Challenge I have received a lot of messages from people saying they love the dress (it seems a lot of you are Isabi fans and have bought the dress in more than one colour!) but those who are petite have said that they are concerned that it will swamp them. I have checked, and Isabi do not have a shorter version of this particular dress at the moment- but they do have similar tunics to be worn with leggings – so although not 100% a ‘dress with sleeves’ I thought I would respond to your questions with some alternative suggestions from the same designer and add the tunic below!
For a draped dress that would suit more petite frames there is a side ‘V’ neck 3/4 sleeve dress that comes in a variety of colours. I think the hot coral version would be lovely for the summer.
The Side Drape V Neck dress in hot coral is £55 from Isabi.
Trapeze Dress with long sleeves is £60 from Isabi as an alternative to the Day 19 Simge dress ( I would wear this as a tunic).
I have also been asked if these are only available in the US as well as the UK. So here are the links for both the UK and US sites.
