I agree!! You need to take it back to her NOW I dont care what time of day it is etc. She needs to fix her mistake for free!!! Having a hole in your weddiing dress is not acceptable!!!I am so sorry!!

I would demand my money back for damages to your dress, and then find a new seamstress ASAP. Personally I wouldn’t trust her with your dress again.

I don’t know how open you are to having a new dress, possibly a sample but heres the situation I had.  I bought a gown for an event and it had a small train (not crazy wedding train, but theres was a small one) when I went for alterations the gown had to be hemmed a big, I went back 4 days before the event to pick up the dress after the alterations and THEY CUT THE TRAIN OFF OF THE DRESS and made the hem way too short.  I spoke to the manager and because the dress I bought was no longer as it should have been I made them give me a new dress.  There was no time to get get the same dress so I picked any dress in the store I wanted and they altered it for free.  I don’t know if that might work for you but it could be a way to get the mermaid style you want considering this shop is ruining the dress you purchased.  Or another alternative would be to find another seamstress who might be able to make it a mermaid style. some of them can work wonders.

Try going to department stores and looking at off-the-rack wedding dresses – they tend to have a good selection of smaller sizes

Where do you live?  This is a long shot, but, maybe a bee on these boards who lives near you would lend you a worn dress for your day?
