Size Guide

Preparation for buying in-store/on-line

We welcome all internet orders but would like to make a suggestion to all new parents whose children are starting school for the first time. The size guide is an approximate guide and whereas you may have bought clothes in age sizes up to now, school uniform is slightly different. It is a good idea to come into the shop initially so that your child can try everything on. Once you have made that initial visit you will know their sizes and can more easily order online.

Our good quality school clothes should give you years of wear, providing that you follow the manufacturers' instructions when washing and/or ironing them.

Measure your child beforehand, using the measuring chart below, and remember to bring a list of all the school's requirements with you.

Our expert staff will be happy to talk to you about a child's individual needs.
 

Measuring Tips

Size guide measuring information

 

  • Collar: Measure around base of neck, inserting two fingers between neck and tape to allow growth.
  • Chest: Position tape close to underarms, measure chest at fullest point.
  • Dress and tunic length: Measure from nape of neck to length required.
  • Waist: Measure around the natural waistline.
  • Skirt length: Measure from middle of waist to length required.
  • Inside leg: Measure with shoes on, to approximately 5cm above the ground.

 

You can order sew-on name tapes either in the store or online which take approximately seven days to be delivered to your home address or any other address you have requested. We also do iron-on name tapes for clothes (which can be done for you in the store whilst you wait) and sticky labels for shoes and other accessories.
