I took my dress to an independent streamstress who is going to bring my dress in a couple inches on each side, add some cap sleeves, hem a couple inches, and bustle also. She has had the dress for 3 weeks and has not started the work yet on my dress. She told me she would be done with the bringing in around June 15 but is not starting on the dress until next week. My wedding is about 7 weeks away and I would need the dress in 6 weeks. Should I be concerned and take my dress elsewhere?

I’m having somewhat of a similar situation with mine. Took the dress in to be hemmed and 2 weeks later she hasn’t started on it. I would just let her know your concerns, maybe she has a workflow that she follows and can do a good job in a short amount of time…just as long as she knows you need it in 6 weeks at the latest!

@anonymous2121: How did you find her? Does she have good reviews? Does she know your wedding date? If she has a strong reputation and knows your date, I would relax and trust her. She does this for a living after all. If you want the dress at a much earlier time than the week before your wedding, let her know at your next fitting.
