    Default "tea collection" style dresses for older girls

    DD wears a size 12 or 14. She's lived in Tea Collection dresses for years so we were excited when they introduced their tween -- until we saw them. They're not the old Tea Collection style at all.

    Any suggestions for modest dresses with floral or geometric patterns that run slim? Hanna is hit or miss because most of the styles are far too wide for DD. Target, J.C. Penny, etc are generally too "grown up" for her school's dress code.

    Old Navy has a lot of florals and some solids and stripes.

    Default Women's brands to look at?

    Thanks!

    I'm also trying to think of women's brands that have knit dresses in floral or geometric. DD can wear XXS in some brands. The popular scoop necks are a problem though.

    I own a Patagonia kimono neck dress that totally reminds me of Tea - it's in an XS and I no longer fit into it but I'm saving it for when 12 yr old DD can fit! I have bought wrap neck dresses from both Boden and Athleta as well. That said, keep an eye on Tea - I hear they are really incorporating feedback and implementing into new designs. So give them your feedback and you might see a different in 2019 designs!

    Cool, I routinely look at Boden and Patagonia. I'll have to keep an eye on Athleta!
