It's rare that I buy something off the rack these days. I feel like I am finally coming into my own as a seamstress and am much more critical of the quality and construction of garments. I visited Macy's recently with a coupon in hand for 15% off sale and clearance items. I wandered around the dress department for a while picking up some items and putting most of them back. I was really excited when I saw a brown shirt dress with lots of potential. That excitement quickly faded when I saw the price tag:
|Yes you are reading that correctly|
I took a chance anyway and took it to the fitting room to see if I could see why it was priced at $148. I fell in love with the fit, length, the fact that it was a shirt dress, came with a fabulous belt, and it had pockets. As I prepared to put it back on the rack, I spotted a price scanner. I wandered over just to see if it was marked down any. Imagine my surprise when it scanned $32! Waaaaaaaaaahooooooooooo!!!! Plus I had a 15% off coupon, I literally ran to the register to check out.
|Love the belt|
|blurry back view. Can you see the pleats?|
Once I wear it I promise to post pics. Now back to your regularly scheduled sewing.
