Who has the nicest summer uniform this yr.

usually do asda or tesco but fancied a change. mot willing to pay uniform shop prices though..

if any one has bought them, which ones hang the mixed and which ones don't swamp the child this yr. don't want them.too long either as that's annoying and they look silly.

Ha I always go Asda and get early to get the colour I need. My DD can't be faffed with buttons and belts so Asda zip & pocket ones are our fav. Wash and hang and ready to go the next day ironing. All for £4 a pop. Bargain

Yes I had a feeling I'd probably end up going back to asda for the sporty zip dress grin

Ditto - love em for their simplicity and easy care.

Gileswithachainsaw Sun 20-Mar-16 11:44:30

how big do they come up I can't remember?

dint want too shrt but too long is annoying to

Sorry not sure - I have a distinctly ave size DD and the fit very nicely

Gileswithachainsaw Sun 20-Mar-16 12:31:45

I'll order a 5/6 amd hope for the best.

although the 5/6 asda skirt she wears is a bit long amd looks stupid so maybe 4/5 mmmmm maybe I should just order one of each then order more after

I guess it also depends on how slim she is. I could have got another year out of our 4-5 but by Sept they were getting snug round the middle of my 5.5 yr old. I handed them on and bought 6-7 which look like they are going to be quite roomy on my now 6 year old

Gileswithachainsaw Sun 20-Mar-16 13:10:41

Well I went fir 5/6

and bought a couple fir dd1 aswell.

looming around they still look like the only ones that don't swamp the model or look a stupid length and m&s can piss off with their 12 pound dresses grin

fingers crossed the fit as well as they used too.

😍Asda dresses.. Cheap enough to justify buying at least 3 too for same price as one else where. And they do only use them for 12 weeks....

Yes. i thought dd1 might be a bit bored with the same ones repeatedly but agree it's not worth spending our when they get yellowed with sunscreen. can't be bothered to vary ot so much this time round dd1 likes the zip dresses the best and finds them.the least restrictive.

asda it is

I thought the uniform shop ones looked awful. no way was I paying 15 quid for them. amd the JL ones always looks so old fashioned

That's annoying. sone of them come up really wide and swamp dd1. she hates the ones that are too big like that.

NoCapes Sun 20-Mar-16 14:20:26

Morrisons do nice ones, I think they're 2 for £6

BathshebaDarkstone Sun 20-Mar-16 14:24:13

If you're talking summer dresses, I bought 2 from Sainsbury's. I think they're all pretty much the same though.

Inkymess Sun 20-Mar-16 16:51:34

Just looked at Sainsbury - zipped sporty ones are £4 too and almost the same 😁

Gileswithachainsaw Sun 20-Mar-16 19:19:03

I've never seen the sainsbury ones as ours never sells them. doesn't really do clothes except perhaps baby grows and school uniform but not all yr round just when it's approaching the back to school season.

my delivery o's due this week I hope I got the sizing right but plenty of time to send back if not
