vlzaccaria:  Perhaps she’s finishing the alterations she made? I’m not sure why you would think it would be damaged, as it seems that the seamstress has been working little by little and needs just a little bit more to finish it because she was sick for a few days. I doubt they left the entire dress to be finished in one day.

vlzaccaria:  Ah, okay. If you were told she just hasn’t started yet, that’s a bit weird. Has she been sick for four weeks? Is there a huge rush of dresses right now? She might be overloaded….in which case, it would have been nice if she would have gotten another seamstress to help her. I still don’t think the dress will be damaged just because she’s just gotten started and/or was sick though.

vlzaccaria:  it really depends. They can be crazy busy. Our seamstress at any time cane be working on 20-30 dresses. 

in busy seasons about 50-70 hours a week.

How much are you getting done.?… standard hem depepends on length of the train and detail on the train or hem points.. 1-2 hours, bustle 1-3 hours, additional nips and tucks on the dress 1-2 hours, additional straps again 1-3 hours.

vlzaccaria:  yeah I am not sure how long she quoted you i’d say a min of 3.5 hours. possibly longer or shorter depending on the detail. It just depends on how they schedule it. Although its possible to get it done over night… In these circumstances its just volume and time management. Best of luck!

vlzaccaria:  I always just assumed the delays were mostly because they work on lots of dresses.  If she knows what she’s doing it’ll be fine.
