    I really would like to get hold of a Mulan dress age 5-6 yrs for my DD1. She is going to have a dental operation in about 10 days time and I'd like to get her one as a present after the op (plus she can wear it on our trip!!)....

    I'm having real problems getting one in that size - all sold out! Even tried ebay and got outbid on one when I didn't get a chance to get back on DH's laptop :eek: There is another now but the back is hanging off (the chiffon) and I couldn't fix it.

    If anyone knows of one around please could you let me know. I can't order from abroad due to the risk of not arriving in time.

    Thanks for your help :thumbsup2

    Have you looked in M&S and Asda? They often sell fancy dress costumes that you aren't the same princess ones over and over. Woolies online?

    Have tried all those - not a one to be seen :( I'm not sure they are actually making Mulan dresses anymore so it's just old stock I think in other places :confused3

    Thanks anyway - it would be Mulan she asked for wouldn't it - although she did ask for Santa to bring it but I thought it would be a nice thing after her op :rolleyes:

    Tesco had quite a few new Disney costumes when I was in the other day but I didn't really have a look which ones, I'll be going either tomorrow or Saturday so will be more observant. They were only £14 which is good and the couple I did notice were Snow White and the pink one (is that Sleeping beauty):confused3

    hiya
    which is the one on ebay that needs fixing??? i wud be happy to mend it for u if u let me know the listing i can have a look and check if its fixable.

    maybe itll go cheaper if its 'damaged' ???

    (always used to buy clothes, and still do sumtimes, that have rips and damage to them - and then mend them and have a bargain!!)

    Aww Nikki - you are a star! Thanks for the offer - I'll see what happens. :lovestruc

    The first dress doesn't have any in her size when you click on boxes.

    The second one is a brand new listing so I hadn't seen it - thanks - I've sent her a msg asking if she'd sell to me now and withdraw listing as otherwise I wouldn't get it in time for DD1 coming out of hospital. Will see what she says - I wouldn't normally ask but I'm desperate!! :eek:

    Mummyminnie - if you'd have a look for me I'd be grateful but Mulan seems to be a bit scarce esp in this size!

    Minniemouse - if only I'd known :scared1:

    After all this, she WILL be wearing it for our trip if we get one :thumbsup2 Maybe for the Stars n Cars parade :thumbsup2

    Might be worth emailing the other seller to see if she has anymore coming into stock or could source one for you as she has an ebay shop aswell.

    Just wanted so say a HUGE thank you to Nikki as that ebay seller agreed to do a buy it now and I was able to buy that Mulan dress :banana:

    I'm so pleased as I know it will make DD1's day after her surgery :goodvibes Not to mention how pleased she'll be to wear it to Stars n Cars parade when I tell her Mulan will be there :lovestruc

    Of course, I have to have it in my sticky mitts so maybe I'm counting my chickens but I'm sure it will be fine :thumbsup2
