If its for a good price.. I wouldn’t ask for a discount. If she decides not to sell the dress to you.. what are you chances of finding another? Plus, it’s not like she’s trying to HIDE the hole, she’s selling as-is.

I’m not sure if there is a fix for tulle.. maybe some type of clear iron-on stuff exists to put it together.

The only person who will know that it’s there is most likely you.  Depending on how the lace applique was attached, you might be able to move it over to cover up the hole.

@MisSilje:  I think it is ivery unreasonable to request a further discount on a dress that is being sold “As-is”. It is a used dress, it is going to have some flaws.

If you don’t want to pay what she is asking, then you should find another dress in brand new condition.

That can be fixed, but I’d have a professional do it.  They would sew it up with really thin invisible thread.

It probably won’t be flawless, but no one would notice the repair when you are wearing it.

The hole can certainly be repaired as others have mentioned.  No one will ever see the repair.   How much of a discount off the original is this dress?  50% minimum or I would not buy it.  I also wouldn’t necessarily worry about resale, you can always offer it at a deep discount and be honest about the condition and let buyers decide if it is worth it to them

I bought a sample dress with a tulle ballgown that had a few rips in the tulle – one there when I was trying it on, and a second one that I made after I decided to purchase it (oops!). 

 

It should be able to be fixed, at the very least by moving the applique over to cover it. That’s what my alteration’s gal will be doing ๐Ÿ™‚

@MisSilje:  How much does it retail for? I agree it should be 50% off or more.
