It happens to everyone. One moment everything is fine, and the next, your tailor has completely massacred your only Eid outfit.
This article is in celebration of all such tailoring woes we all face every single year, yet we still don’t learn the lesson!
1. Apa, we are not taking orders anymore
URGH! Why do we go through this heartbreak every single year and refuse to go to our tailors early every single time? It’s okay, we all know this is still happening next year. And the year after that.
2. When they refuse to tolerate our many shenanigans
Remember that one (read many) time you saw this unrealistically beautiful Sabyasachi dress on Pinterest and pestered your tailor into making one for you and he said it was impossible? THE BETRAYAL!
3. When the material is not enough to cover our dreams
How many times has it happened that you bought a little less material than you needed (because it was hella expensive) only to find that it won’t be enough for the sharara you bought it for? Sigh.
4. When he reschedules dates more than your actual dates
Remember that time when the event you needed a dress for was on the 4th and the tailor’s delivery date was NOWHERE NEAR IT? Yup.
5. When the final output is NOTHING like you instructed
You remember how despite repeated begging, imploring and pestering, your palazzo magically turns out to be a churidar or your collared neckline becomes a V-neck? Don’t even get me started on the things tailors draw on those little notepads of theirs. How are they supposed to remember every single thing we nag about when they draw triangles and circles on what is clearly representative of something that vaguely resembles a scarecrow?!
All grudges put aside, I think it’s safe to say, our tailors are our superheroes. Do we wish they stopped doing the above? Every single day. But will that make us be better and change our ways? Nope.
