Body Measurement Guide for School Uniform Production Issued in DPRK
Pyongyang, April 3 (KCNA) -- A body measurement guide for school uniform production was distributed to different parts of the country from late February to early March, a touching news meaning a great turn in school uniform production in the country.

The guide reflective of love of the motherly Party for children, future of the country, is the first time in the history of the country's garment industry. It shows the special care and benevolence of the respected Comrade Kim Jong Un to provide all pupils and students across the country with fine uniforms.

In September last year, he learned in detail about how school-age children were outfitted with new uniforms before repeatedly stressing the need to supply well-fitting uniforms to all of them. He also said that all teachers should be taught how to take body measurements for uniforms.

In February last he gave an instruction on drawing up and distributing a new guide on body measurement for schoolchildren.

True to his noble intention, a relevant unit of the Ministry of Local Industry worked out a new detailed guide containing several more items than the one in the past before its intranet distribution to all uniform producing units in provinces, cities, towns and counties across the country.

At the same time, a workshop was given for officials and workers of the producing units and teachers across the country.

The rational and advantageous guide will help improve the quality of school uniforms. There is continued consideration to add more suitable items, together with follow-up measures.
