My biggest dream in high school was to go to high school.

Ok folks, I'm going to level with you. If you've been fact checking, well, you get to laugh at me. I totally screwed up, Victoria day in 2010 was on Monday, May 24th, NOT May 18th. But I already had like 20 pages written and I need the school to be empty one day. So lets just pretend that you are a loving daughter, and I am a good father. This is a pleasant fiction, is it not?
Er... lets pretend I got the dates right.

Annie has had a female school uniform since at least No. 162, " Dr. Bernt ". But it has taken this long before she has had the opportunity to actually wear it at school, unless this is another dream sequence. Hurray, nevertheless for her presenting herself in the correct school uniform !

@CuteDress&TwinPonytails: Close, but nope. Tony got the girl uniform on page 66 (Uniformity) and the mistake was revealed on 69, Kyle Round 2. He spends a lot of time freaking out in 74, Uniform Rage.
There is a LOT of history behind that uniform!

Now that my curiosity is piqued, I went back and reread and studied Nos. 60-75, to see just how Tony came into possession of a female school uniform. The story line does not specifically say, but from your comments posted above, is was a mistake made by the clerk who issues the school uniforms.

Tony's supposedly male school uniform was ordered up by him in No. 66, Uniformity. But then in No. 68, Walk to the Racks, it is implied that Tony apparently sees the school uniform for the first time, but because it is wrapped up in paper or plastic wrapping and not recognizable, folds it up and puts it into his backpack. The female uniform is next seen again by Kyle, in No. 69, Kyle Round 2. However, in No. 70, Fight, Tony declares that,
" It's not mine " to Kyle, but folds up the female uniform and stows it in his backpack again. Then, in No. 71, Post Fight Run, Lexi picks up on the fact that Tony has a female school uniform, but is told by Tony to, " Nevermind that " ! Next, in No. 73, Hanging Up, Tony is left to contemplate the fact that he was able to bring the school uniform home, but does not seem able to grasp the purpose of doing that. Finally, in No. 74, Uniform Rage, the full horror of incongruity of what he has done hits Tony, and he declares that it is not his uniform, and he is only going to keep it so as to make sure it stays clean and new.

Is what I have just described the correct understanding of the storyline ?

@CuteDress&TwinPonytails: Yup, more or less. It actually does specifically say that a clerk made the mistake in Uniform Lies (75) the day after, when Lexi says she got a boy uniform.
Doesn't really come up again until Accusations, where Tony starts freaking out about how it won't "fix" him. It's a long sordid affair.
Though if Tony actually really thought he was just holding on to it to keep in clean, he is way more self-deluding than even he knows.

My first experience of wearing a female school uniform
( called a 'sailor fuku', the traditional Japanese school girl's sailor suit school uniform ) was for a cosplay contest at an anime convention called Otakon, in the summer of 2000, in Baltimore, Maryland, USA.
