If you can get your money back for this dress, you might consider doing so and then buying a dress off the rack or from a consignment store.  That way, you could have the new one immediately.

If not, are there any independent seamstresses in your area?  I know there are ones in both DC and Boston who get uniformly rave reviews and are much less expensive than the salons.  I’d be inclined to use one of them, if there is such a person in your area.

If they ordered the wrong size then they’ll have to take it back. Did they take your measurements properly?

They can’t just totally order the wrong thing then expect you to take it!

@BerryBerry:  This.

If they ordered the wrong size based on your measurements, that’s totally not your fault unless you signed a contract agreeing to that size. BUT!!! Make them measure the dress and compare it to the size chart as well….there have been cases where dresses have been accidentally mismarked!!  In that case, the manufacturer is responsible for rushing you a new one.
