SHSG kilts wash well, but even having washed them in a pair of tights as the lady in the shop advised I find pressing the pleats a chore
Ditto the collars on the blouses (minus the washing in the leg of a pair of tights bit).
However, I do remind myself how sad I felt hanging up DD's uniform for her first day in year 7 (four and a half terms ago) and thinking that it "should have been" a green blazer and kilt and not a black blazer and black trousers. So I remind myself that it is a bit churlish to moan about laundry, DD having had a second chance at the end of year 7 and succeeded in getting in. I do still allow myself a little gnashing of teeth over the care label in the blazer, though
DS2 is hoping that March 1st will confirm a place at SHSB, so that he can start working his way through DS1's old uniform.
(Actually, that may not be his prime motivating factor??).
