Cottesmore Gardens Uniform


This uniform is easily recognised by the red roll neck and tights, with a classic navy smocked tunic worn over.
The tricky part of recreating this uniform was the shape of the tunic, which is a classic English style with a square bib, smocking and full skirt. It took our seamstress a few tries to get it just right, and we experimented with a variety of fabrics before we found this wool twill. Our seamstress’ attention to detail is amazing and she managed to copy many details of the dress, including the belt. We also made our own rollback in order to match the vermillion red worn at school.
