Netizens react to lady's green dress order


"Did she get the fabric or the tailor did… because any style inspired u want to create starts with the fabric, body shape and the ability to show up for fittings but we take all this for granted and expect the best in return, like really?"


"Lol sorry. What you ordered was created from scratch (net and beading) definitely not this asho- ebi you used. But in all fairness tailor no try, at-least get the cut. it’s not a shape this is like 6pieces and use the same colour of lining at least. (And customer try give designer some other time not carpenter)."

Identified as @BeyondTY on the platform, he revealed he had wanted a green cutout jacket which looked like knitwear.

However, what he got was a subpar print version of the jacket, which was short and looked quite different from what he wanted.
