Anyone got it?

Was delivered today - and I haven't got a clue how to put it on!

It makes no sense whatsoever, whichever way I try to wear it.

And I can't return it because I had to wash it before I'd even tried it on because my stupid dog weed on it.

Oh, I can't do specific ones, sorry.

I'll try and do a link to all saints, hang on...

Just go to all dresses, and the little wee-soaked awkward bastard is there.

It's bonkers, honestly. The print is gorgeous, but it appears to have four armholes confused

bishboschone Tue 13-Apr-10 20:51:12

dunno how to do it tho confused

It is lush! From the picture, it looks like it should be simple to find the correct arm holes!

However, try this...lay the dress out flat on your bed, arrange it just like the picture, look at it carefully, and then put it on, so you have a clear idea of its shape and how it will sit when you put it on. does that make sense?

Why does it have 4 holes? Are there side vents??!

Thanks bischboschone...

I've tried all that, monkey. I've even had dh on the case. I nearly strangled myself.

It just makes no sense. I love the print, but I can't make it work.

God knows why it has four holes. It's got a bit of a drapey neck thing going on.

Perhaps I should email All Saints...

weird, can you find the buttons? they seem to go to your right grin

their t shirts are freaky! they seem obsessed with skeletons and corpses

MerlinsBeard Tue 13-Apr-10 21:16:32

Its double sleeved i think by the looks of it. So each arm should go thru a long bit and a short bit to make the pretty sleeve

bobbiewickham Tue 13-Apr-10 21:18:34

Erm, I got a skeleton tshirt as well.

I like that - at least I can get the fecker on.

Honestly. Nightmare. Would send it back if the stupid dog hadn't pissed on it.

Bet this never happens to [insert random glam person here]

Buttons appear to want to go down the back when on the hanger, but change their minds and start to creep over the right shoulder when on.

theres a lot of loose material at the front, you are not trying to get your arms through that are you?

Lovely print, btw. your trim new body will look great in that!

bobbiewickham Tue 13-Apr-10 21:19:38

I tried posting my arms through both holes, but then the drapey bit at the front goes inside out!

<sobs with frustration. Eats chocolate. Won't fit now>

MerlinsBeard Tue 13-Apr-10 21:20:22

Are you sure you didn't shrink it when you washed it - Says dry clean only!

Hassled Tue 13-Apr-10 21:23:06

If it really is that insane, send it back regardless on the basis that it's not fit for purpose - the dog pee is irrelevant.

NorbertDentressangle Tue 13-Apr-10 21:25:48

I opened the link expecting something with lots of complicated straps but it looks straightforward enough -could you have been sent a faulty one?

ZZMum Tue 13-Apr-10 21:30:57

I have an all saints dress that I am embarrassed to say I have never worn as I can not work out how to put it on!!

I have had 5 people try it and we are yet to get it to look like a dress top or hat or what ever it .. shame as it looks like it could be nice!!

Defeated by a dress .. how sad is that!

fishie Tue 13-Apr-10 21:31:44

put your arms through the holes nearest the back. the front holes dangle in front. zoom on side pic you can see it.

cyb Tue 13-Apr-10 21:33:35

we are all holding our breath bobbie

its like the booble plate all over again

fishie Tue 13-Apr-10 21:34:50

also zoom on back of the neck, there is a sort of collar thing.

cyteen Tue 13-Apr-10 21:35:44

Take it to a branch of All Saints and ask the shop staff to help you.

'Please help me with my dress' It doesn't work'
