I’m so sorry that has happened. No bride needs the last minute aggravation.

 Have you thought of using double sided tape to secure the bolero to your dress? no obvious pins or pin marks!

ugg.  Boleros are hard to fit in general, and your experience just made me even more nervous about ordering online or trying to get one made.  Sucks that  you only have five days and are stuck having to redo something you already paid for and thought you had crossed off the list.

Could you maybe say something to your friend?  It seems like this gos beyond frendor issues to super unprofessional.

Aaaaah! So sorry you are having to deal with this.

I would definitely speak with the designer. This is not personal it is professional. She needs to know that her work did not measure up and she needs to be called out on the ink stain.

Just treat it in a professional manner. Call her on the phone if you think that will help you to stay in control. Tell her that you regret having to bring these issues to her attention, but you know that as a professional she would want this feedback and would want to address your concerns.

Tell her what your dressmaker has planned in order to fix her work and ask how she plans to make this right for you.

ETA you don’t need this information now as you have another solution, but the two sided tape I was tallking about is especially made for ensuring that clothing stays in place- low cut necklines etc.
