Nursery uniform for a dinky 3 year old.

Our DD1 will be 3 in August and starts nursery in September. I've ordered her uniform already, got the smallest sizes they do which is 3-4 years but everything is huge on her and there is only so much you can adjust the waistbands on the trousers and skirt before it starts to get very bunched up plus the trousers are about 2-3 inches too long. Does anyone know of anywhere I can get smaller sized grey trousers and skirts?

Thank you.

Awwwwww!

Build-a-Bear Factory? :snigger: Sorry, will behave now :whistling:

School Uniform Shop | Schoolwear | Back To School | School Uniform | Banner | Blue Max | Beau Brummel | Trutex | Medallion | Free Delivery

At lease these put measurements on. Should make things easier?

I get tall/skinny DD2 those stretchy grey school trousers and put tucks in the waistband.

:snigger: That's not a bad idea about the Build-a-Bear Factory!

Thanks for the link Bells, I've had a look and the trousers are the same waist as the ones I've already bought but the legs are even longer so it looks like I'll have to take them in whatever I buy.

I was having a hunt around yesterday and found out that Next do a slim fit range in kids school uniforms and sizes start at age 3 so hopefully they a bit smaller than the 3-4 sizes many shops sell. xfingers

Yes, I find Next good for DD as even 'skinny' jeans hang off her. Next ones have those elastic tapes inside where you can adjust the waist.

I find that most school skirts are too long anyway so end up buying a smaller age range to get the right waist size, which is something to consider when she's older. Those elasticated pleated ones are best for little waists but a bugger to alter.

If you hate sewing and don't intend to shorten and then lengthen, I can recommend Bostik 'Sew Simple'. It's glue and it's great!

Thanks for the advice and I think I'll definitely try the next trousers, I can always take them back if they don't fit.

I do currently buy her stuff for younger children, she's only just going into age 2-3 leggings and even then I have to watch it because some are on the large size around her waist. I recently bought her a pair of skinny jeans for age 2, the length was okay but like your DD they were also huge on her everywhere else.

I don't hate sewing I'm just really pants at it, I've used that webbing iron on stuff to take trousers up is the Sew Simple like that? DH is good at sewing so I can always delegate it to him. : D

That sounds far easier than sewing or trying to line up wonder web and iron it without it moving, I can't believe I've never heard of it before.

I've found some trousers! Sainsburys do two pairs of age 3 grey jersey trousers for £6 which are still a little bigger than she needs around the waist and a little too long but not ridiculously big like the others.

Flic, it's this! Bostik - Sew Simple 40ml - Hobbycraft | Craft Shop, Art Supplies


PP, I spotted some trousers and a skirt age 3-4 in Asda last week. I actually got them off the rail and was going to buy them and send them to you... but decided to tell you about them instead.... and then forgot.

Aww thanks Bells, how sweet of you to think of us. :) It was Asda ones I bought in the first place, they don't look that big do they? But put them on DD1 and she looks like she's shrunk! Never mind, I've still kept them, they'll do for next year or the year after.

Oooh, Bells! I'm gonna have to get some of that. Sounds ideal for me! Especially as O seems to have stopped growing in height!! And I stopped growing in height over 10 years ago!!
