School Uniform Short Sleeve Oxford Shirt
This shirt is very nice but the buttons are very small and very tight button holes. They are hard to manage even for a 10 year old.

White Oxford Girls School Shirt
Washes well; custom stitched monogrammed logo is excellent quality

Couldn't ask for a better fit. The tapered darts give a feminine cut, rather than the boxy cut of the uniform shops.

Found the right fit
My daughter has used these shirts for several years as the fabric and durability are superior to other uniform stores we've tried. Last year she wore a side 14, which is now a bit tight. I was afraid size 16 big kids would be too big, so I measured her and she was between sizes for junior. I ordered one of each: girls size 16, juniors size 1 and size 3. All 3 fit, but the size 3 fit her nicely with a bit of room to grow, vs. the size 16 which was big and boxy, although it did fit. Also, the junior sizes are longer. The guidelines for sizes are accurate for these shirts. If your child is tall and slender, consider the small juniors sizes instead of the large kids. And the larger kids sizes are more amply cut if you need that. Now I will return the 2 shirts to Sears and am ordering 5 more in size 3.

Great alternative to uniform store shirts
We have worn these for the past year, and I have read all of the reviews posted on this site. Here is what I can tell you about our experience:
1. Fabric is best on the market. Everything else requires lots of ironing and isn't nearly as comfortable. My daughter stains everything and ours are still just as white as when we bought them.
2. They are well-designed to fit a petite/average child. If your daughter is husky, these are not the shirts for you in regular cut. That said, I love the fit because it isn't skin tight (which most decent schools will not allow anyway) but it is slightly more feminine than what you find at a uniform store or boy's shirt.
3. My only wish is that the collars were button-down. I have to sew the collars down each year, but I know that every school has different requirements and Lands' End needs to stick with what works.
4. I do agree that an inch or two longer would be very helpful, but as I order shirts for this year, I really hope I am not disappointed in the "larger, overall" measurements. If a child needs "larger overall", go husky....don't mess it up for the kids who are at an appropriate size for their age.

love the fabric of these shirts
i am a petite adult woman and i love the fabric of these shirts. i add more darting to slim the fit and transform the sleeve to a cap sleeve (slightly tricky) and wear these shirts everywhere, especially for travel. even with the alterations, they are less expensive that other brand no-iron shirts.

Although the shirt is great:
Love the shirt; the way it fits my little one, however after a few washes with Clorox to remove stains and keep them white, they turn yellowish.

O.K. not Great
As with almost all girl's and women's shirts, there is not enough length. I ordered the size 12 for my average size 12 year old, and the width is ample; however, the length is not. When you move up a size in Lands End, you seem to get more of the same. More width and little length. Very frustrating. I'm forced to buy Land's End school uniforms, because of the school logo, and I wish there were alternatives due to cut and sizing. Quality is good, but the cut (even feminine cut) is off.

Purchased several of these for my daughter to wear as school uniform blouses. She hates them because they are tight through the shoulder area and sleeves. I cannot go up a size because they are loose everywhere else. One size up might fit better through the sleeves, but it would be too large and look sloppy. She is not broad shouldered and does not have this problem with her other blouses.

not feminine enough; "looks like the boys shirts"
for a girl's oxford, it's not very feminine. while the fabric is what you would certainly expect from LE, the design of the blouse is not what my 12 year old cared to wear to school. her words, "it looks too much like what the boys wear". and if anyone else out there has a pre-teen, well, you know i'm not winning this battle...even though I do not care for the thinner, cheaper fabric from the local "catholic school store". please consider a more feminine design, darts to make it fitted, and non-buttoning collar (too much 'like the boys'). blouse with pointed collar is fine; differentiates between the junior high girl uniform and the Peter Pan collar the younger girls must wear. no 'puffy' shoulder tops on the sleeves either. i think that about covers a lot of her comments! thanks.
i would recommend this to anyone who's daughter's not as selective in the design. it's still well constructed. gave it a 3 strictly based on the design.
