PLEATS THAT PLEASE

Like it or not, school’s back. This classic pinafore dress will ensure she returns to class in impeccable style

Wow – that went quickly. Another summer is over, and my thoughts are (reluctantly!) turning to last-minute school uniform buys. For the girls, I think it’s hard to beat this pinafore dress. The style has been going strong since Victorian times – with good reason. Happily, our version has heaps of modern innovations thrown in (stain-, water- and crease-resistant – hooray!) and most importantly, customers approve. One reviewer says: “I buy this dress every year! It fits fab, looks lovely on. Good quality. Little ironing is needed. Looks great even after wearing for a few terms. Smart dress for all ages. Highly recommend.”
