Sorry about your ordeal!  Did she measure how much it needed taking out each time or did she just “eyeball it”?  Hopefully this time she’ll get it right since it zips up, it can only get better.  I doubt she’ll make it too big, since it sounds like she only lets it out a little bit at a time.  But I’d be embarassed if I were her, taking so many times to get it right.  I’m embarassed when I have to do a third fitting!  Anyways, does the back look bad because of your back fat or because all the letting out has left needle holes?  I can’t speak for her, but if you’re still unhappy, she should be able to let it out again in 2 weeks, 2 days, or 2 hours to make it right.

@melisande:  Ug, it’s never a good idea to eyeball, no matter how good you think you are at it!  Be sure to leave her a more “accurate” yelp review when it’s all over.

I would probably be trying to find another seamstress, if possible.
