    Question mixing up

    How do you feel about this sentence: 'There has been some mixing up between pullovers for women and shirts for men.' In essence it is supposed to say that 2 orders got mixed up.

    Hi, there
    why don't you just write {there has been a mix up between pullovers for women and mens' shirts?} It sounds better.

    Hope I have been helpful
