Unfortunate Pattern Placement

Unfortunate Pattern Placement Award...and the Oscar goes to...
I'm not sure how I feel about wings on my shoulders and rear; it's clear Antropologie never took 7th grade sewing with Mrs. Harper. Click on the link to see their even more unfortunate front pattern placement.
Really, Antropologie? Right here?
This is even more evidence that we need to bring back sewing in the schools, if only to show that there is a better way to do this.

So much is going on with that orange peplum dress I doubt that anyone would care about the back motifs. The shift dress is a definite no-no!

I have a Pinterest board dedicated to RTW errors. I think you would enjoy it.

I agree; that dress is pretty busy! But I have no problem with the motif placement; in fact I think it's quite well done! If those "wings" were sitting directly on the butt cheeks, there would be a problem; as it is, it's up high enough to dodge that problem. And if the wings were placed lower or higher, it would look rather ODD, I would think. Better they sit right where wings would be! That horizontally placed line is correctly placed for where it is...very flattering!

My jaw dropped, especially the second dress.
