Yellow shirts and brown leggings/trousers for Brownie camp

DD needs a colour-coordinated wardrobe for Brownie camp. Where online could/should I buy some decent quality shirts and trousers/leggings in the right colours?

I found some 2nds-quality yellow Ts on Ebay, but I feel wary they could be ultra-thin crud. And more expensive shirts on Ebay, plus shirts that don't seem quite the right shade of yellow...

Presumably someone else has had this problem and can advise? Buying white shirts and dying them not a solution for me. TIA.

rainbow babies have good quality, reasonably priced yellow t shirts, and Adams have brown leggings

I'm trying to avoid full RRP Coalman, but thanks anyway.
Mistake in Ur 1st link CMOT, but Adams looks promising. Ta.

Speaking as a Brownie leader, I'm puzzled. Have you been asked to supply all this colour-coordinated kit? Most packs have stocks of camp uniform which they lend to the girls, and/or permit the girls to wear their own clothing at camp. The (ahem) joy of Brownie uniform is that it's distinctive and it's not easy to find the same colours in the shops.

Does your pack not have its own camp uniforms?

They have uniform to lend out but it seems to be discouraged to use that unless you really (financially) NEED to borrow kit. Obviously, week to week, DD only needs one set of uniform, not 5xshirts, 3xtrousers, etc.

We were given a pack list and there definitely wasn't a tone of "We have everything you need here", but rather "We do have some uniform items we can lend out".... We can afford to buy, I just like to be frugal, am busy snapping up stuff on Ebay.
