Those big X's on your coat or skirt are meant only for shipping

Posted on Sat, Dec 24, 2016 at 7:00 AM

People – you are supposed to cut and remove the big stitches in the pleat of your jacket or skirt before you wear them! They are only to keep the pleat flat while they are being shipped. Good clothing stores used to take them out for customers when the item was purchased – you should take them out yourself. If you leave them in, it prevents the pleat from functioning – which is to provide ease in the garment, and looks bad! –Fine tailor from way back
