More Stripes From BTSSB/AP?

I'm "flipping" through scans of KERA's June issue, and this dress in the upper left-hand corner catches my eye. The caption says, "Alice and the Pirates,"/"Baby the Stars Shine Bright," and it's black and white striped. This dress looks different from the Kuragehime dress, does anyone have any information on it? Pic below the cut.

The dress that smelled like motor oil... =/

Hello lovely loli ladies!

I'm in need of some advice today!

About 3 months ago I purchased a dress from closet child (it's AP's whip magic in bright pink if that matters at all), and when it arrived it smelled very strongly like industrial machinery or motor oil or something like that! I washed the dress and the smell remained... I then proceeded to hang the dress outside... it was there for a day, the smell didn't go away. Its since been hanging in the hallway closet and its faded a little but its still there. :/

Closet Child made no mention of any strange smell on the listing at all, so I find it really strange. I've bought other pieces from there before and nothing ever smelled like this.

Anyone have any advice on how to get rid of the smell? Or even what it could possibly be? I haven't tried dry cleaning the dress, but I don't want to waste money on that only to have it not work.

I'm looking to sell the dress right now, as I've registered in an expensive fashion school, and I don't want to have to move back in with my parents! So any help would be great. :)

Edit: Hand washing in cold water and baking soda didn't work! Now that the dress has dried, the baking soda reduced the smell but its not gone completely.
