A dress recreated by a lady has caused mixed reactions on social media regarding the differences between the original design and the replication.
While there are people who are keen on getting the exact dress they ordered from their tailor, not everyone gets the perfect ending.
Well, in this case, it is hard to tell if the lady got what she ordered and not something else.
In a post shared by @asoebiafrica, a photo of a lady in a coffee brown dress is placed in a collage alongside the inspiration behind her high-leg dress.
However, while the original design had a corset feature, it was lacking in the replication.

Also, the recreated look featured an illusion neckline while the original was a mono strap off-the-shoulder dress.

Nigerians applaud tailor over dress recreation
Several Nigerians on social media have applauded a tailor over her impressive replication of a popular design.
While the most popular 'what I ordered versus what I got' stories often end in tears, it was certainly not the case for a beautiful lady who was pretty much happy with what her tailor made for her.
The original design which was made of ruffles at the bottom, a corset top and one-sided double straps became quite popular amongst Nigerian fashionistas in 2021.
In a video posted by Sabiradio, the lady shared a picture of the original design, and then a video of herself in the dress she received.
