What's Wrong with This Jacket?
This jacket is by Vanessa Bruno and retails for $770. Did no one look at this and say, hey the sleeve is inserted incorrectly? If it fits the model this badly who does it fit? Maybe the sleeve is even in backwards? I imagine it could happen in the factory, just like it's happened to all of us a time or two. But, we don't leave it like that. This jacket was featured in an email I received from Mode Walk today. Did they not notice how bad this is? I don't shop retail unless I am snoop shopping or, looking at websites. I was in Neiman Marcus in Austin in January and I thought that the clothing I was looking at was beautifully made. Of course I was on the designer floor and all of it was expensive. This is probably well made too, but quality control was certainly sleeping when this one went by. I will be back to my regularly scheduled blogging soon; I needed a break but sewing has been going on. Have a good weekend
I have been sewing since I was a teenager, mostly self taught. I sew for myself, with some some occasional sewing for my daughter. I love garment sewing and will only sew home dec if desperate. I love to cook and read and try to avoid cleaning as much as possible.
