We had this last year. Dd started a new school and was supposed to have a tracksuit in black or navy with no logos. She is small for her age and though she was 11 she only needed age 8-9 so I know what you mean! We spent an entire afternoon traipsing from shop to shop and there was nothing (Brighton city centre so most major chains available). Eventually I did find one in ASDA that was plain blue but had a lilac lining in the hood but by then I thought if that's not good enough for the school then tough! They haven't said anything so this year I was pestering ASDA as soon as uniforms came out, but even then I had to make 2 trips and several phone calls as I could only get top first time because they were already flying off the shelves. I've bought the next 2 sizes so I won't have to go through the same trauma next year!
I must say ASDA staff were very helpful though so it might be worth asking if there is still anywhere you could get one in blue.

Dd is skinny too and ASDA ones are fine on her.

YANBU and neither am I (only my tall skinny dd is 10). I've been looking since the end of last term, tried Woolies, M&S, Debenhams, John Lewis, BHS, Mothercare and more. Even tried the dead expensive local uniform shop but no joy
