Can either of you do some of the work on your own? Lets say you cut and ship it to your mom to sew etc? Im not sure exactly what your sewing plans are.

Can you make a custom DIY form for you or your mom to use? If the dress is 100% done and only needs a few little seems to make it fit perfect that wont be a problem even a few days before the wedding. I might be sewing all of my bridesmaids dresses 1300km away from them (thankfully the fabric is forgiving and they have tried on a mock up and I know what alterations must be done). I know its really hard doing things from a distance but sometimes we dont have choices.

If you’re almost at the fitting stage, I’d simply have your mom send it to you and have a local seamstress finish it.  I know this was supposed to be a special mother-daughter project, but at this point you have to just get it done for your own sanity, and it sounds like with her new job, it would be a relief to her too.

@MissNoodles:  Agreed. I think it would be best to find someone closer to finish it- especially since your Mom has cancelled on you twice. 

If you wait until 2 weeks before the wedding, I think you’ll be freaking out over it (I know I would be). A seamstress might not have been in the budget, but it sounds like your best option.

@moonadea:  what about heading to a local fabric store and ask if they have any recommendations?  I’m sure they meet plenty of seamstresses in their daily business.

@MissNoodles:  Often stores cant make recomendations due to store policy. Hopefully the ones in your area can. There must be girls on here who might know of people in your area. Why dont you try a local board.
