Why do people who make clothes make such SILLY mistakes?

I just ordered quite a nice quality dress from littlewoods (using voucher ha ha) and expected it to be, well, catalogue stuff - but it turned up, was heavy jersey, very nicely finished etc.

I put it on, and stood there. It is a wrap dress, and they had even thought of sewing the flap into the side so it can't blow open. Great so far. Then I walked. Just a couple of steps. What happens?

The flap thing at the front WAFTS, well it flaps really, and inside it is WHITE which just looks so awful sad

You have a heavenly deep pinky dress with a great white flap down the front every few steps. Also the hem is kind of a big scalloped shape, goes up a bit at the front - which means, what do you get? a nice view of the white lining at the back hmm

So pissed off. Where can you get nice, wlel thought out clothes that don't have issues?

Can't you get some wondaweb and stick the sides down a bit?

i could but I think it'd ruckle up - I was trying to think of a solution, it's such a shame.

The main problem is the front wrapover bit, on the skirt - below the waist it just hangs there so when you walk it moves. If I tacked it to the underneath section it'd probably look really funny sad

but thanks for the idea anyway smile

Argh - thats a bummer. Was going to suggest that you dye it? But that would affect the nice colour.....what about wonderwebbing material over the white?

Hmm. That is a possibility...I hadn't thought of it!

But I think it's going to be too complicated to get it right, with my limited sewing skills, so am sending it back I think.

Thankyou x
