Family heirloom

Today, I got the dress I gave to a tailor to replace a broken zipper back. When I tried it on, I discovered that they’d cut at least 4 inches of fabric, and being skinny, there’s no way I can ever fit into it. It’s from the 1950’s, inherited from my late grandma, who in turn inherited it from her aunt. FML

take it to a more reputable seamstress and have it converted to a corset back or have a new panel put in. not ideal, but an altered heirloom is better than no heirloom at all. and make the tailor pay for it

Asking them to repair it and them actually doing the repairs are two different things. Just like you can sue and win the settlement, but that doesn't mean you'll ever actually get any money.

i think what she means is it's so small that even her skinny ass can't fit in it. probably suggesting nobody could be skinny enough to wear it.
