I did a little searching and found a few of my favorites for the season. The downside is that several of them are most definitely in the "dream" price range... but if you can afford them they're great because they are hand made and their sellers usually offer to customize the dresses (so if you want to ask for a longer hem, they'll be happy to do it!).
I picked out the name for this one (it has it's own long name if you follow the link) because this one is absolutely my favorite dress for this year's holiday season. I guess I'm just a fool for lace. Now when my expanding figure will be able to fit back into a sheath dress (modestly! without looking like a stuffed sausage!) is another question altogether.

Another beautiful Shabby Apple dress!
I can just imagine wearing this to a Christmas party!
My favorite part of this one is the built in headcovering, but I would definitely ask for a few inches length in the hem... in my dream shopping world!
