Hey Trend Not Worry readers! Life has been fairly busy (in a great way) so I haven’t had time to do quite a lot of running a blog. However I’m again…hope you missed me! 😉
Nonetheless, I used to be deciding on whether or not or to not share this story as a result of I really feel like I’m creating PTSD from this costume trauma.
One of the best ways to get by it’s to speak about it. A minimum of for me. So, right here’s it goes…
A shopper reached out to me about making a customized costume for an occasion. I fortunately accepted, created a sketch, she authorised it and I used to be off to work!
This was my first time working with sequin however I used to be up for the problem. Together with this costume, there have been different shoppers that I used to be additionally making attire for. Sadly, I didn’t notice that I’d taken on an excessive amount of.
Between this costume, attire being constructed from different shoppers and my different obligations, I hate to say it however…this shoppers costume form of fell by the cracks. So many points had been left undone and/or finished shoddy. From the match to the zipper.
No fittings had been finished (massive mistake!). Moreover, I tried to attach with the shopper once I took the costume to her. She wasn’t obtainable. So, I ended up dropping the costume off to the with out even seeing her. I didn’t even notice there have been so many points with the costume till she contacted me. Admittedly, it was ill-fitting and wanted some work.
I reached out to her and provided my sincerest apology. I additionally provided to restore the issues that day. Sadly, she by no means received again to me. Which I can perceive as a result of she was in all probability fairly upset about it.
Once I inform you that I harassed about how one can resolve this…I STRESSED ABOUT HOW TO RESOLVE THIS. After a lot stressing, I made a decision to supply a partial refund and be finished with it. Errors occur and I actually wished to resolve the difficulty.
Right here’s what I discovered…
– Don’t tackle greater than you are able to do. It’s okay to say no.
– Don’t finalize any customized clothes and not using a becoming.
– Be open and upfront with the shopper.
– Don’t beat your self up. Do your finest to resolve the matter and transfer on.
This entire factor turned out so dangerous that for a second I thought of not making attire. However why stop doing what I really like due to a mistake? I’ve to be fearless, study from my errors and push ahead.
Thanks for listening! I hope you discovered one thing too. Have an analogous horror story?? Share it within the feedback. I can’t be the one one. 🤷🏽♀️
