Wow…. that bolero is not particularly complicated (construction-wise) so I dont blame you for not trusting them. I dont think I would try to order another jacket from them.

Is it too small?

File a dispute with PayPal saying that the item was received not as described. If this seller is not performing up to expectations, the longer you wait, the slimmer the chances that you will get your money back. Also, don’t leave feedback, until after you get your money back.

@MsInterpret: Well… if its an issue of the sleeves and shoulders and not the whole thing, a seamstress MAY be able to salvage something of the situation. Maybe take out the non-stretchy underlayer and replace it (or not replace it)? I think it would be worth a try to see what they say. In the meantime, I would either do as noritake said and dispute the charge or exchange for the petticoat. I agree that a petticoat is much harder to screw up.

With that fabric, I dont think it would be possible to lengthen the sleeves though, without it being super obvious.

Personally I would file a dispute. If you were to return it and get your money back you would not be refunded the return shipping costs so you would be out that money. Good luck!!

I am an avid ebay buyer and no the sellers will not refund the return shipping they claim that it is the buyers responsibility. If you decide to ship it back make sure it is insured since it goes to customs and many items get “lost.” 

The bolero looks beautiful, whatever decision you make will be the correct one .

i ordered one of ebay (i buy a lot from ebay and rarely get screwed) it was supposed to be dark ivory and look like an alfred angelo boloro…well what i got was banana yellow!!! and instead of fine lace it looked like my grandmother crocheted it…when i messaged them all they did was say sorry and refud it no questions asked and they didn’t want it back…

If you do decide to send it back aske them to reimburse your shipping b/c it was their fault they messed up threaten to take it up with paypal and leave bad feed back.

i hope it works out.
