I took a rare day off the other week and went shopping with Little Miss Mack and my Mum.
We stopped outside Monsoon to look at their lovely vintage inspired tea dresses. Don't thy look pretty?
Now look closely
Not so pretty..................Look at that hem! Just run up on the machine and badly at that. The thread is all chewed up and it's loopy and pulled. And it was not just this one either.
Looking a little closer lots of the dresses were all made in this cheap and cheerful manner and many had terrible machine stitching.
I'd never dream of selling one of my creations with this kind of stitching and certainly not for £75!
I'm off to aid my vintage stash and find myself a tea-dress pattern, if Monsoon carry on producing dresses of this quality and retailing them at these prices, I will be laughing all the way to the bank when I release my range of well made one off pieces!
