Last week Sylvia tested out the new range of Summer School Uniforms from Matalan. My daughter has had several serious growth spurts in the past few months and her old uniform items were getting very small. In fact, we have been measuring Sylvia regular against the door frame and she has shot up almost 3 inches.

We tested out the Matalan Easy Iron Teflon coated range which is brilliant for maintaining a smart look and designed to withstand water, oil and stains. The Teflon restricts stains absorbing into the fabric and so they are really easy to clean when your child comes home with stains on the fabric.
Sylvia loved her new pinafore with the cute front pockets and bows. This was her favourite dress and she was excited to wear it to school with her new Matalan Gingham socks.
The Pinafore is affordable and in our usual price bracket for school uniform items. The socks came in a pair of three with different patterns which I think was really cute. The second item to model was the girls Flippy School Skirt.
Sylvia loved this skirt as it’s so floaty. The school skirt has really pretty flower embroidery detail, is also Teflon stain resistant and has an adjustable waist which will be useful for keeping up with Sylvia’s ongoing growth spurts.
Lastly Sylvia tested out the girls red gingham school dress which came with a matching hair scrunchie. I really like the gingham style dresses.
The girls red knit collar print gingham school dress has a front zip fastening which I personally prefer to lots of buttons. Matalan sells these at a great budget price and they can be purchased in four colours.
Thank you Matalan for sending us some lovely items to test out. Sylvia was really pleased. She has been wearing them to school and they are easy to wash and Iron. In total we received two gingham dresses, two skirts and one pinafore along with the socks.
It’s great having a variety and selection of uniform items as I can wash her uniforms in one go at the end of the school week. I love the Teflon stain resistance, that’s really appealing and the clothing is competitively priced in comparison to other stores where we have bought Uniforms in the past.
Disclosure: We were sent the items of clothing in return for an honest and open review.
