TIP - Save Money on School Uniform - Make it last!

At Dorset Schoolwear we provide quality schoolwear for those who need it. Equally however, we want to help make life easier for parents, so here are some tips we have picked up along the way to help save you money.

Often, there are ways you can revive items of school uniform, even if they look a little worse for wear. Are trousers too short? Maybe you can let down the hem. If your child chews the cuffs of jumpers, try swapping the cuffs from an outgrown jumper to the jumper that still fits, or cut off the chewed bits and re-hem. You’ll have slightly shorter cuffs, but it won’t be noticeable.

There are other ways you can get the most of your school uniform, including passing it on to a sibling or friend. If you’re looking to pass down items of school uniforms to siblings, make sure you just use surnames on name tags, that way you won’t have to redo all the tags for your younger child!

Remember though, if you want schoolwear that provides real value for money and lasts the test of time, make sure you buy based on value rather than price. The Lowest cost schoolwear can often need replacing regularly and the chances of being able to pass those items on to other children is reduced due to the quality of the garments.
