However, not so many people get to hear the tailor or vendor's side of the story.

Well, it appears this would have been just another case of 'what I ordered versus what I got' if the tailor was mischievous enough to take the job.

In a post shared by @ms_asoebi, a tailor shared a video of a lace dress with fringe and applique embellishments that a client asked her to recreate for the sum of N5,000.

Online order fiasco

Yet another shocking case of ‘what I ordered versus what I got’ left a lady pretty much speechless, much to the amusement of internet users.

What was meant to be a purchase of a stylish dress from an online store turned out to be a huge disappointment to a lady identified as Temí Tayo Femi.

Taking to Facebook, Temi shared photos of herself in a white dress which did nothing to flatter her silhouette.

While the dress looked a bit funny and ill-fitted, the magnanimity of the online order fiasco becomes more pronounced when you take a look at what Temi had originally paid for online.
