Eczema/man made fibre allergy sufferers; 100% cotton school uniform at Asda

Hi, I just had to let everyone in on the most amazing secret! Asda have just kitted out my dd (aged 2) in the school uniform she's going to need, to cover her completely between the ages of 4 and 8. Their 100% cotton range is fantastic and I've got her 2 trousers, 2 skirts, 4 shirts, 2 sweatshirts and 2 cardigans for each year between 4-5/5-6/6-7 and 7-8, for £145! That's about the price I had to pay for my son's uniform for 1 year at the same school, buying him the required stuff with the school's logo on.

Because my dd has an allergy to man made fibres, and the school can't supply logo'd uniform for her, they are letting me get it from Asda. I reckon Asda have just saved me around £500. As anyone with an eczema sufferer in the family knows, the specialist clothing websites, where it's possible to buy 100% cotton clothing, charge an absolute fortune for the stuff.

Hooray for Asda!

The only thing I haven't got is a blue gingham summer dress. Does anyone know where I can find one that is 100% cotton?
