One of the worst things you can do to yourself in Nigeria is telling your tailor to recreate a unique design that he/she is not used to for you.
A Nigerian Twitter user identified as Chinonso has taken to the platform to share a photo showing what her friend asked her tailor to sew for her and what she made.
The outfit made by the tailor is in no way similar to what the client asked for and web users are amused by this
Sharing the photo, she wrote; “My friend’s tailor just murdered it😂😂 What she asked for vs. what she got 😭”
See some similar gists that we have also written in the past.
Recall that Actress Mercy Aigbe once stepped out for an event in an iconic dress that had people talking. A woman tried recreating it with her tailor but the outcome was disastrous.
Also a Nigerian lady identified as Ayomikun once took to Twitter to call out her Nigerian tailor. She took a photo of the dress above to show her tailor the replica of the dress she wanted, but what she got will leave you in stitches.
She stated that she doesn’t understand why Nigerian tailors refuse to say no when a client asks if they can perfectly make a design.
See the tailor’s handiwork below.
In regards to her question, many Nigerian tailors who confirm that they can make a particular design might do so because they actually believe they can and want to give it a try.
Others, however just say yes because they want to make money from delivering the service. These tailors are in the majority category and they have given really bad names to good fashion designers.
Nigerian tailors can never be honest sha. Simple ‘no ma i no fit do am’ 🙁 pic.twitter.com/EbPbfWYcMq

In another similar news, here’s a classic example of what a Nigerian lady ordered and what was eventually delivered to her.
The lady took to Twitter to show her disappointment, saying her sunday was ruined.
See photo of what she wanted below;
And here’s what she got…
She went further, explaining that she decided to try out a new tailor based on favourable review only for her to end up disspaointed.
In her words,
“Moral of this story: DO NOT CHEAT ON YOUR TAILOR. I accept the fact that I am to blame. I listened to praises sang about this tailor 😭😭😭 In truth, I my cheat again. Everybody loves to slay.”
