I got a lovely dress for a party, pic on profile and have just washed it as per the instructions and the black pattern has made sort of stamp marks on the red bit... I followed the instructions, delicate cycle at 30degrees etc

Is it fixable?

Can you take it back?

If it is still wet and you can't take it back I would wash it through by hand in cold water.

akhems Wed 14-Oct-09 14:21:16

I've rewashed it
rang the shop and they no longer have it so I'll be getting a refund

I love that dress

Wow you look gorgeous!!

wheres the dress from??

love you 'heating broke' pic grin

akhems Wed 14-Oct-09 15:43:14

aww thank you, the dress is from Evans but they don't have it anymore, had a very sweet chap on the phone today ringing round lots of shops to try and find one but no joy so he said he'll arrange a refund

It was my first ever dress, been too fat for them til now blush

Disenchanted3 Wed 14-Oct-09 15:47:09

Awww crappy.

Least you'll have the money back to search for another.

Is it totally unwearable?

TheDevilEatsBabies Wed 14-Oct-09 15:53:18

aww, i'm sorry.
it's such a beautiful dress and you look gorgeous in the picture after all your hard work.

Can I ask how you lost the weight?

I need to loose 2 stone but am struggling, I just can't get motivated to do anything and keep ordering curries

akhems Wed 14-Oct-09 16:03:23

I don't think it's wearable now cos the black marks are all down the front of the plain panel on the skirt if you see what I mean here it is

I had weight loss surgery disenchanted, I'd never have been able to do it on my own, years of yo-yoing made sure of that. But I did and still do best eating low carb.

Can I ask what dress size you are now? It is just there is one on Ebay but it looks too big for you

Wallace Wed 14-Oct-09 16:05:55

I don't know what size you need but there is this on ebay

akhems Wed 14-Oct-09 16:05:58

Well, the one i have is a 20 but my friend said it would look better in an 18?

Thanks Norma for looking

Wallace Wed 14-Oct-09 16:06:48

Sorry just seen above link it isn't the same one sad

akhems Wed 14-Oct-09 16:10:41


can I see the one you found please?

although it's too late now cos I'm sposed to be going to a gala dinner on saturday night and was planning on wearing it to that so it would never arrive in time

Wallace Wed 14-Oct-09 16:12:43

The one I found is a 26 so too big for you. I don't know which one Norma is looking at.

NormaStanleyFletcher Wed 14-Oct-09 16:13:19

The one on ebay is too big then

akhems Wed 14-Oct-09 16:17:14

lol thank you anyway.. never thought I'd see the day that a 26 was too big!! I used to be a size 36

frantic shopping for me tomorrow although I still have no idea where to look really :/

Lilyloooohhhh Wed 14-Oct-09 20:04:34

akh get yourself over to style and beauty and set a challenge , bet you might even find another one as nice smile

akhems Thu 15-Oct-09 06:08:14

Lily, it was style and beauty thread that found me that dress in the first place.. BunnyLebowski to be precise

I have another dress that will do for Saturday - There's no way I'm going to have time to find another before that so I'll make do for now and let the hunt commence next week.

bellavita Thu 15-Oct-09 06:15:58

What a shame about the dress sad.

Just wanted to say though well done on losing your weight, you must feel fantastic smile

akhems Thu 15-Oct-09 06:53:17

Thank you bella, compared to how I was, it was getting to the stage where mobility was a real problem as well as some aspects of self care and life in general was such a struggle.. it was really lose the weight or be better off dead..

It hasn't been easy but soo very worth it

Furball Thu 15-Oct-09 07:21:52

akhems - it says on your link 'dry clean only'

I'm assuming the label says different?

Well done on your weight loss
