We have such high standards here at Mess Me Not so if a smock is not perfect we do not sell it. Sometimes however our Mess Me Not Smocks have little fabric imperfections which we realise after they are made. We do not sell these as normal stock so instead put them aside. The Mess Me Not Seconds may have a tiny little mark or two on them (usually a black dot around the size of a pin head where ink has been trapped under the film), pin spots, or in rare cases a slight pull in the fabric (this will be stated) affecting their perfection but they still function as normal. Our Mess Me Not Seconds are still made to our high quality Aussie Made standard and still function exactly like a regular Mess Me Not Smock, they just aren't quite up to our high standards meaning you can grab them at a discounted price!
