We care…

Last year we bought 6 dresses from Swedish designer “Up The Wooden Hills“.   The clothes are made of beautiful Liberty cotton, and on the website it said“The days of ill-fitting clothes with bad pattern construction, too tight seams, stiff shapes and strangling necklines are over.”  It was a bit of a shock when the dresses came and they were difficult to get into because there was no zip!  The sleeves, although hanging off the shoulders were restricting and appeared to be set in backwards. We did sell two of them, and rather than throw out that beautiful fabric, I found somebody who was willing to do a makeover on them –take out and re-cut the sleeves, and bring them higher up on the shoulder.  She put zippers in.  We told the two people who had bought the dresses that we were ‘recalling’ them.  Now the dresses really are comfortable and live up to the claim made by the designer!  The sleeves fit properly, and the dresses are easy to put on.  Now they are pretty, and look great on.  We did this because we just LOVE the fabric.  Now this model can smile!
