The Material No Gree Stand: Lady Left Disappointed as Tailor Delivers Poorly-Done Dress Recreation

The Material No Gree Stand: Lady Left Disappointed as Tailor Delivers Poorly-Done Dress Recreation

  • Photos of a flared dress a lady ordered and the botched version she received have gone viral on social media
  • In the photos, the original designs and the replication appear to have been made with two different types of fabrics
  • Only a while ago, another lady was left disappointed after she paid N140k for a dress that was poorly done

While it is important for tailors and designers to fully understand the process of creating a dress, it is equally important to understand the type of fabrics that work well with certain styles.

This appears to be the case in yet another 'what I ordered versus what I got' scenario.

In a post recently shared by fashion blogger, @asoebibella, a collage of a dress inspiration modelled on a mannequin is placed alongside a replicated version which didn't seem to turn out well.

The original design with sleeves made of multiple strands of beads was created in a mermaid style with a bejewelled bustline going all the way down to the hipline.

However, the lady's attempt at recreating the look didn't pan out as expected.

What was meant to be an opportunity to slay a regal look ended in tears for a lady who recently got her heart broken after a major fashion miss, courtesy of her tailor.
