Tsukesage Kimono: Can You Spot the Design Flaw?

I'm re-posting a link to Ichiroya's Kimono Flea Market ICHIROYA's News Letter No.506 since it's such a great story! The nuances of kimono manufacturing and design never fail to intrigue.

Read more about tsukusage kimono and formality level here.  
The kimono shown below does not have the design flaw...use it for comparison.
