There are many great disappointments in life and not having a good tailor or fashion designer in your corner will most certainly have you experiencing some pretty big let-downs, just like the lady in this story.
Sometimes, it is easier and often cheaper to have stylish looks rocked by celebrities recreated by your own tailor rather than take it to the original designer.
While a lot of people tend to get away with recreated looks, there are those who suffer major disappointments which more often not, tend to be an eye-opener.
The tailor misunderstood the assignment
Such seems to be the case of a lady who was recently stunned after she took delivery of a dress she commissioned her tailor to make.

The lilac applique and tulle dress which was rocked by ex-beauty queen, Anna Banner, was designed by @heiresscouturenigeria.
However, what the unidentified lady received was anything but the original design.
Not only was the dress ill-fitted but it was also not the right length and neither was the bust area properly executed.
A photo collage of the looks was shared by @ms_asoebi alongside a hilarious caption that reads:
"Good morning to everyone except tailors that don't have human feelings."

The post had several Instagram users amused as some took to the comment section to share their thoughts.
See comments below:
"This is what they call Pekele mess."
"The upper part@of what she got looks like a decoration for photo stand."
"This is the difference between petal appliqué and “Flawa” Naaaa."
"This thing is the same ...she hasn’t worn a padded bra, she is not on heels, she hasn’t crossed her legs...most importantly take out the leggings...There you have it!!!"
You are the problem, not the dress: Internet users share thoughts as lady expresses sadness over online order
"The dress looks like something from art and craft in my son’s kindergarten class."
"One is d real deal, d other is Halloween costume."
"Let her manage it. It happens to customers that prices too much. Is too expensive. That tailor can sew it for #2k. Good for most of them."
"Tailor: madam, the appliqué you’ll need for this dress will cost xx. Customer: ah it’s too expensive o. Can’t you use normal flowers? Also please make the front of the dress knee length as i don’t like “exposing” my body. Tailor: Yes ma."
Birthday plans ruined over a dress
A Nigerian lady identified as Ade has taken to social media to cry out after she ordered a two-piece pant set from an online vendor.
There have been stories of vendors shocking their clients with badly tailored and low-quality items different from what was ordered, but not everyone thinks it will happen to them - until it does.
This appears to be the case for Ade whose birthday plans fell through after she took delivery of her online order.
