its all about craftsmanship

fine craftsmanship is what makes a doll collectible. that’s part of the reason we pay high price for it. it always makes me frown when I see an unfitted or a badly made dress on Barbie.
just saw 2 pictures of Halloween Haunt Doll a member posted on BFC, look at these 3 buttons on the Dress! it wouldn’t be hard to line them up straight, right? well, the sewer just didn’t place the buttons in the right places. who knows what other flaws I would see if I see her IRL.
Found another photo, this one shows the dress bustline is too small, the front dosent close as it should.
I wouldn’t complain if the doll was under $20, since she is a $75 vinyl doll, collectors have the right to ask for better quality. Just my opinion. and I was not happy with the my Ekaterina’s outfits, was really badly made, the neckline is in odd shape, as the sewer couldn’t make it a neat oval the darts are slanted, as the sewer couldnt sew straight.
