- A TikTok user, @jpepaa, recently shared her pre-wedding experience with a designer she commissioned to make her wedding dress

Every bride's nightmare is having a botched wedding dress, and this is something @jpepaa recently experienced.
The 25-year-old pharmacist ordered her dream custom bridal gown for her September wedding.
Not a fan of trying on different dresses in a bid to find the right one, @jpepaa decided to have a Valdrin Sahiti design replicated.
According to Insider, she paid N3.1 million ($7,000) for a custom-made replica of the Sahiti gown from the designer who'd made her friend's dress.

However, when she went for the final fittings, she got a far cry from the design she wanted.
@jpepaa described the dress she pulled on in her final fitting in July, accompanied by her mom and bridesmaids, as a "literal nightmare" in her TikTok video.

"I feel like the design was simply not in the designer’s wheelhouse WHICH IS FINE but they should have known their limitations and been upfront about it!"
"No no no no no this is not how the custom wedding dress experience is or should be!!! I’m so sorry yours went like this."
"I sew and I’m here to tell you, she did a horrible job on design & construction. Your final dress is stunning."
Bepe de beep:
"I mean I get if she didn’t want to copy the design, but clearly a dress like that was not within her skillset."

"The dress you wanted is a heavily corseted one, and there was no corset under what she made how could you get that waistline without a corset?!!"
"Omfggg the sleeves are baggy. The designer dead wrong."
