    I was just talking to mum and she said she has some library bags she sewed for a market she did (her and my sister have a small handmade business selling at markets and on fb) and dd jumped in to get one of those so now I just need to work out if I can do a smock.

    Need some advice: I bought DD's school shoes today, but I'm having doubts. She liked them, that's not the issue. I'm just wondering if they'll be appropriate for her school, and comfortable. They take their shoes off at the door (rural school), so the buckles are fine, and there is a fair amount of bitumen and tan bark, so the other parents said they don't get all that muddy. I dunno. Anyone else got these? I used to have them in school all the time and I remember them being comfortable.

    Mine wear Mary Jane shoes with their formal uniform @Hollywood and they're all pretty rough on their shoes, but I make sure I get leather upper and comfy soles and inside padding.
    They wear black leather sneaker style for their sports uniform, so 3 days out of 5 are the Mary Janes.

    Eeep! I spent $290 at the uniform shop and that included getting 5 second hand things. I wish the school kids bonus still existed.

    @Mod-Uniquey are the ones I bought Mary Janes? I've got no idea with the names.

    I got DD to try them on again and she sort of struggled with the buckle. Argh! They are constantly taking them on and off to come in and out, so I really don't know. Should've just bought sneakers.

    They sure are Hollywood.
    Ours come with velcro which makes it a lot easier on and off. Buckles look cute, but are a bit tricky.

    I went with these:
    https://www.mathers.com.au/BLOSSOM-9...ck-284111.aspx
    They were really supportive and weren't heavy, unlike a lot of other school shoes we looked at.

    Dd tried on a pair similar to what you posted and she really struggled with the buckle. The teachers really pushed getting shoes with velcro for Kindy, or they would be tieing 20+ pairs of shoes all the time. Unfortunately, we had to get lace up joggers for sport, but I'll just have to get more proactive with teaching dd to tie laces.

    It's so expensive and I didn't even go overboard with uniforms 😮

    It sure is! I actually skimped compared to some Mums there (hence some 2nd hand items) even the socks were a rip!
