- Photos of an asoebi style a lady commissioned her tailor to make versus what she got, in the end, have surfaced online
- The recreated dress which is a poorly-done version of the original design has left many people amused
- The lady who rocked the original design has reacted to the post, sharing her thoughts about the situation
More often than not, ladies post photos of their asoebi dresses alongside the tailor/designer behind the look.
This often helps others who may be interested in replicating the look to be able to reach out to the creators. However, there are those who prefer to use their own trusted (and sometimes more affordable) tailors for these recreations.
This appears to be the case for a lady whose attempt at recreating an asoebi dress left her quite disappointed.
The mono strap inspiration features tulles tied around the waist and draping in the front.

However, what the lady received was not only ill-fitted but also poorly cut.

Lady rocking original design reacts
Reacting to the trending photo, the lady, @oven_secret, pictured wearing the original design, reacted with amusement, pointing out that she had tagged her designer so other people could patronize her.
She wrote under the post:
"I tagged my tailor for you guys..You people refused to patronize her.. 2 years after and my picture is still making rounds on the internet."
Internet users share thoughts
"Some clients still dont want to understand that some styles are not for them."
"It's her body type/shape plus the dress is not fitted on her. The tailor tried abeg."
"The only difference is that the waist is not high enough. And then, the shoulders are towards different sides. Oh wait, the color. Yes the color isn’t the same☺️"
"U short u wan go sew tall person style Na see the result."
"The tailor needs to explain something to us."
"Shey no be your measurement dem use?"
"What you ordered vs what you deserve."
That tailor will not make heaven: Reactions to photo of N140k dress recreation
While many tailors/designers have succeeded in putting smiles on the faces of their clients, the opposite appears to be the case for others.
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.
