John Lewis School Belted Gingham Checked Summer Dress, Lilac

Product information

This smart school dress has a small lilac and white check pattern, front button fastening from the waist up and small collar. It has a slim tie belt which gives the dress shape and detail.

As well as finding the correct uniform, make sure they're ready for work with the right School Stationery. If your child is just starting out at school or still in the earlier stages of education, they might need extra comforts to keep them engaged with learning. Have a look at our Children’s Stationery to make lessons fun.
Kids can carry all of their stationery and books in one of our school bags and if they’re taking a packed lunch to school they’ll want a Lunch Box with a cool design to keep their lunch fresh.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Good quality summer dress Good overall fit for associated age range. Fabric lovely quality which washes well. Particularly like the tie back element of the dress. Excellent value for money. 28 April 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by School essential I have bought these school dresses for both my granddaughters over the last five years. They wash well and keep their colour. They always look smart. Though more expensive than other school dresses, I feel they are value for money. 17 April 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by good quality very good quality material much better than anything I have found in school wear shops,very pleased with purchase and a good price 25 April 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Colour of this dress I found it difficult to tell from the website what colour this was. It is a pale lilac colour. Quite pastel. Not what I needed for my daughters uniform but very pretty. 27 March 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by top quality, great size range!! These dresses are wash and dry fantastically! I have a tall 8 year old currently in 12 yr old dress size and hardly any ranges cater for younger larger children. And the style is lovely for a young girl who likes a proper dress style with length which most other "school styles" do not offer. I can only hope the larger sizes, 12 13 14 &15 yrs, do become avaliable(always out of stock when I have tried) for the coming years she is at primary school. And of course come in Lilac the school colour. 27 July 2012
