Can You Lend Out Your Wedding Dress?

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.

For security reasons, why don't you take pictures of the wedding gown fron different angles, afterall tailors copy styles from pictures in magazines such as Ovation, and those fashion posters that they buy. And then you can also save yourself the bother of dry-cleaning bills.

Let her follow her gut instinct 'cause there's no smoke without fireeven if the fire is burning from within her mind.

i think it is better not to give the weding cloth out.

she can come and take a look at it, there are other wedding gown out there if she wants to lay her hand on.

tailors have association, she can be helped out by her fellow friends who have been sowing.

there are catalogue, there her wedding gown display, she must have have friends that have gotten married too(i just assume)

since there is a challenge for this woman for fruit of the womb, maybe she should take HER WEDDING GOWN for special deliverance.

maybe thats where her problem is, and they want to seal it by needing the cloth.

Abeg no trust anybody oh, since its not your sister, even your blood ngo, trust urself and believe in your God for a miracle.

she can get her customer wedding gown without making use of yours.

Be wise, watchful and prayerful.

Never and never will I allow such a thing. It is exclusively for her alone.

As some1 as express be4. I was once a white garment church goer and I know they can make use of anything to gain entrance if they wish to do anything funny.

Please and please dont give it to her. Tell her to always come and see it or probably take the pics.

Dont give her O! It is very dangerous!!!

Accordiing to her, she has never sewn any wedding dress before, this is going to be her first and she needs a sample to examine and copy, as dfferent from what is on catalogue.

I personally can't read any meaning to it, its just that one cannot be too sure with other human beings. That's why we need other people's opinion. Thanks all the same.

I will advice her not to either especially if the person goes to a white garment church. It's too risky.

alcohol i don't see anything wrong in lending our her wedding gown, as long she isn't wearing it, but than again you can't trust people or what they are capable of

But why is she trying to copy the same style, can't she look for another design hmmmmm something smells fishy

Don't they have pics from the wedding, that will give them an idea of how the dress looks

I will advice her not to
