So I bought a new school uniform. (ick)
Pleated greyer than gray skirt and jumper, light grey shirt and and a red and black tie.
then some thing came up, and I had to drop out of school. The shop wont let me return the clothes so does anyone have any ideas for them, or involveing them?
I'd love if you would help me out. Smiley
cheers

I've heard people in my town who pass along, or in your case, sell the items to other students who will be attending the school... maybe you could ask around or put an ad in your paper? Other than that... I'd alter the clothes, shorten the skirt, etc... and put some cool stencils on the items!

Without seeing the rest of the outfit, I only have a vision for the skirt... I would shorten it so it's just above knee length, and i can see some sort of flower/vine detail either being stenciled or embroidered on, kind of up the side on one of the pleats either on the left or right. You said there's a shirt... depending on what kind, I'd so the same sort of design on the sleeve or body or pocket or something as the skirt. Maybe that idea helps?

you could make the skirt into a mini and put patches etc on it.
Or (hehe) you could make it like britney's in that video!
i dont really have any v. original ideas, but if u do shorten the skirt, i think that tartan would look SO cool with it! Or you could graffiti something on it. School sucks or something!
sorry, i'm off rambling again!
