Buying cloth

Friday, November 14, 2008
At the beginning of each season, I go shopping, find nothing that fits nicely, and I think of having my new clothes tailored. I go for buying cloth, find nice stuff, however I hate the sellers.. and I hate bargaining... I get my stuff done.. and guess what, most of the time it disappoints me.. the output is never as I wished or imagined.. I take a decision of not doing this again.. no more tafseel.. the next season comes, and I never learn the lesson and repeat the same mistake over and over..

Finally, I learnt the lesson, and I stopped getting my stuff tailored.. however, when it comes to a soirée dress, I find it difficult to find a good fitting dress especially that I'm veiled.. so I go back again to tafseel..

Asked around for a good 7'ayata, and I was advised to go to certain one which is said to be very professional.. took an appointment, and went without getting the cloth, thought of taking her advice regarding the dress model and what type of cloth to buy.

I had no idea in mind for the model.. she started suggesting some stuff, didn't like it that much, but I agreed, because I learnt it the hard way.. not to ever suggest something that she is not convinced with.. that's because she might not know how to do it.. however, when she suggests something, then she knows that's nice and she will do it well..

She told me what type should I buy and gave me the measurements for each type of cloth.. started shopping for cloth.. I really hate that type of shopping.. first, because I don't feel free to watch whatever I want.. plus the sellers don't show you good stuff from the beginning, you should keep asking for a better thing, for a nicer design, and I still feel that I'm not seeing the best he has..

Being not very much convinced by the model, couldn't imagine how would the dress look like.. found a nice one, but thought it's not won't be nice with the model.. so I started searching for new models to suggest for her to do instead..

After selecting some.. went today to buy the cloth.. again, feeling I'm not seeing all the good stuff he has, so I had to be a little bit of a difficult customer.. kept pointing to different designs and looking to what other customers are getting..

Then he went and got me some stuff from inside (see, they are hiding stuff).. el mohem, I liked one of the stuff he got, but still wasn't able to make a decision.. he showed me another one which was nice as well.. w kont me7tara between both.. people started pointing to that one he got me from inside, and they kept saying it's very nice.. one of them decided to take from it.. and unfortunately, it was enough only for two dresses.. so, the moment I saw her taking from it.. unconsciously I decided to take it as well..

It's nice, but I hated how I acted.. I only decided to take it when I saw that lady taking from it as well, and feared it might be finished, since people liked it.. didn't like how I based my decision..

So I got cloth, with random measurements because I didn't decide on the model yet, and I'm not feeling good regarding the whole idea, since I know things never come out as I imagined!
