My friend’s sister-in-law, who happens to be a tailor, requested that my friend should borrow her her wedding dress in order for her to copy the design to sew a wedding dress for a customer. Nothing appears to be wrong with the request on the surface, she’s truly a tailor and it appears she has never sewn a wedding dress before, she got this opportunity and wants to try her hand on it, using the sister-in-law’s dress as a guide. Plain, simple and harmless.
Where my friend’s fear emerged from is the fact that she has not been blessed with a child after 3years of marriage. The tailor sister-in-law attends a white garment church (cele) and my friend feels she probably wants to use her wedding dress as a point-of-contact to do something diabolical to her marriage. Like cause wahala that may bring separation so that another lady might move in, blah-blah.
She and her husband are coping well and she seems to have a good enough relationship with her husband’s siblings. (No parents, but sisters, all of them!) She sought my opinion and I honestly didn’t know what to tell her. She had instantly said ‘yes’ to the request, but later had a rethink and that’s the reason for posting this thread. Please help me to help my friend. Bless you all.
