"I’m not going to school Mum!"

After a long summer holiday you can be forgiven for sometimes being slightly relieved when it's time for your little darlings to go back to school. But with youngsters being ever so more fashion conscious sometimes 1st day nerves can get the better of them.

School uniforms can be a regular source of frustration for parents and youngsters alike. Children can grow at an alarming rate, sometimes making a new uniform seem too small almost immediately after purchase, and there are a number of other reasons why school uniforms may need to be altered or repaired, as kids continue to grow and their clothes are in daily use.

The good news is that it is much cheaper to hire the services of professionals such as the team at The ZipYard in order to make alterations to clothes, than it is to have to go out and buy all-new school uniforms, every time your child grows an inch – or decides they want their dress to be shorter or longer!


Alterations that can be made to clothes including school uniforms include:

  • Repairing or replacing zips on trousers
  • Repairing split sleeves on shirts, sweaters and blazers
  • Shortening or lengthening skirts, shirts, jackets and trousers
  • Letting in or taking out shirts, skirts and trousers
  • Attaching buttons to shirts and blazers

Special orders can also be dealt with by the professional team at The ZipYard, so please don't hesitate to ask!
