Skorts are a brilliant combination of shorts practicality and skirt style. No wonder they’re so popular with schools and sports teams. However, bringing the best of both of worlds together takes skill and experience. Does your skorts supplier really have control over every step of the process? If not, you could be disappointed with the result.
To help you get the ultimate skorts solution, the Uniform Link team has put together a checklist for you. Here are the three must-haves you must consider before you give the final okay.
Must-have #1: Flattering fit
One of the things you want to be sure of is fit. Achieving the perfect fit and creating a flattering silhouette for everyone is so important.
At Uniform Link we’ve spent many years refining our garment patterns. By working closely with hundreds of schools over three decades and using that feedback to brief our in-house pattern maker, we’ve been able to set the standard in skorts design.
While others may try to copy our fabrics or use sublimation, it won’t match the quality of Uniform Link’s skorts because we get the garment foundations right with a great pattern that optimises fit for your students.
Must-have #2: Fabric match
One of the big reasons skorts came into being in the first place was the need for comfort. But you might not maximise the comfort potential of your garment if you get the fabric wrong.
Fabric choice will depend on the aesthetic you’re looking for, and the activities your students are undertaking.
For example, if it’s for sport, how much stretch do you need? Is it cool to wear? How durable is it? Can it be sublimated to carry the team colours?
If you’re looking for skorts that can be part of a formal uniform, you might need a traditional material that’s great for embroidery.
At Uniform Link we pride ourselves on our ability to listen to your needs and formulate a fabric plan for you that will match your specific needs.
Must-have #3: Creative customisation
Skorts are a primary school uniform essential. A clever blend of shorts and skirt in one, they offer a winning combination of style, functionality, and comfort for students. But gone are the days of settling for plain, single colour skort from a wholesaler.
With Uniform Link sublimation, you can create skorts with some serious design flair that are still great value for money. Have you thought about adding a sublimated panel? It’s a clever way to go from bland to brilliant. You’ll be able to inject colour and vibrancy into your school’s uniform and create something that is beautifully customised.
Uniform Link has helped so many schools to customise skorts and take that design concept across every element in the uniform range. Give us a call and let’s show you how easy it can be when you’re working with the experts.
