The ability to put a garment on inside out and wear it throughout the day, shows you have found yourself a well made garment.
To this day as I roam from store to store, reviewing, researching and assessing the latest fashions, I routinely turn a garment inside out.
Sometimes I find twisted sleeve linings, unfinished seams, uneven stitching, inconsistent pattern lining pattern pieces, uneven darts, etc., and then sometimes I am completely surprised by what I find!
One visit to Saks Fifth Avenue NYC, I was moving through a dress area lifting hems, turning down necklines when I came side by side with a woman doing exactly what I was doing!
We smiled and laughed commenting how we decide if a garment is worth trying on by the workmanship.
Then the woman said something I had not expected…. she was a personal shopper for the store.
Staff with product AND garment knowledge-how refreshing!
The next time you go shopping try the clothing on inside out to see how it really fits!
