Grrr...I am so angry with myself.
Next weekend my two DD's are having Holy Communion. I went today to Fonthill Rd in Finsbury Park and bought two dresses.They are just what I wanted. They were £80 but she gave us discount (wholesalers) so I ended up paying £70.I left shop so happy and I was so happy to be over with that.
Came home and just took them out of their bags to check on them and one of them has pen scribble on the bolero.I called them up and she told me I can come to exchange on Monday.But...I think they were the last ones and it is such a extra thing.I have my first scan on Monday (12+ weeks) and I am stressing so much about it.They don't refund the money and I can't waste £££.
Just wanted to went...THANK YOU

Aw what a shame.

If you can't find a replacement easily can you try a stain devil product on it.

Try to chill out and relax!

Being pregnant is so blooming stressful!

I have a little bolero on dd2s communion dress, I can post if you're stuck.

If the item is faulty they are legally required to replace or refund. They can't refuse.

Thank you so much eosmum but I will find my way it's just very annoying.
It's a proper boutique .They sell wedding dresses,flower girl dresses ,holy communion dresses and different price range.
I checked again and I just realized that pen on the receipt is the same as the one on the bolero....
I just can't believe it..And I live in NW London so at least 1h drive if DH doesn't take car to work if he does 2h by pt......

Where in nw London are you? I'm in nw5 and it's def not 2h on pt!

What size do you need?

Ps, soaking the item in milk is ace for getting biro out if that is possible

Could you sew some extra beads, sequins or little flowers onto the boleros?



Something like this.

Thank you so much.
IHYSOLP it will take me 2h because I need to go in the morning (rush hour) and come back for hospital app.I live in NW10.Can't travel by tube --makes me very sick at the moment.
ThatsAStupidUsername--that's great idea if I can't exchange.Where do I buy sequins???I really wouldn't even know where to look for them.
Please let me know.
Thank you so much on all advices.

Fair doos smile

Try john lewis, amazon, Fenwick or online...if you google sequins then there should be TONS of sites (brain fail is stopping me remembering any! !)

I've got an age 13 one if thats any good?

Thank you .I will first go on Monday and see if I can do anything about it .The stain is right at the back in the middle of the bolero.I am not even sure how I would do it..I would find my way.
Thank you so much for help.I will try to go and get some sleep...I need it for next weekend..
Thank you one more time..Have a lovely evening......
