During a trip to the US in March 2014 I visited
JC Penney minutes before heading to the airport.
You know, one of those last minute purchases.
|Black sweater - Striped skirt Worthington - Black patent heels Vince Camuto|
There I came across this striped skirt and matching jacket.
I was too lazy to go to the fitting room and bought the
two garments without trying them on. I chose to buy a skirt
that was a bit larger than I would normally wear
considering that if it was too big it would be easily tailored.
When I tried my new striped suit back home,
the skirt was too big and the jacket too tight.
So I took the skirt to the tailor and ordered a bigger jacket on line.
I'd try to sell the smaller jacket and that would solve the issue.
Wrong. My tailor misplaced the skirt.
After about 10 months I began to search for another
skirt on line and was lucky to find one via e-bay,
the skirt would still need tailoring.
When I finally received the skirt, I took it to her so she
can fix it. The day I picked up the skirt she tells me
she found the original one, so I now have two skirts.
Luckily for me a friend bought the second suit from me and
it fit her like a glove.
Have you had a similar experience with your seamstress or tailor ?
