- Wedding: April 2015
Bees, I am freaking out. I went with a seamstress that comes to your house to save a couple of hundred dollars. She is very nice and has been doing a very good job, except for… postponing our appointment for my second fitting twice. I thought it was not very responsible but I figured she was busy and I would give her some more time. During the second fitting, everything went well, the dress looked good, we had some minor things to fix or change and she took it back. I’ve never been to her house, I don’t know where to find her, I only have her phone number and we’ve communicated via telephone calls, text messages and Facebook.
I paid less than half of what she will charge me for all the alterations during that second fitting. She was supposed to deliver the dress this Monday. I called her on Monday, she didn’t respond. I freaked out a little but I thought maybe she didn’t finish it and is embarrased to pick up the phone, so I gave her a call again yesterday, again no response. At this point, I am getting a little worried. I texted her, called her again, and no response at all!
I worried that maybe something happened to her! I went to check FB and she has been online and posted things on her wall in the last couple of days, so I know that she is not in some Emergency room or kidnapped. I messaged her on FB and you can see when the recipient sees the message. She saw it at 2 AM this morning. No response. I sent her a Friend request, she hasn’t accepted it.
I called again this morning and this time she didn’t let it ring 4 or 5 times as before, she hung up or declined the call at the 2nd ring. I am really worried and sad and feel like crying. She is an older, christian lady, I doubt that she would just take my dress to sell it somewhere. I wonder why she is not letting me know if she needs more time or God forbid something happened to my dress.
I sent her another text and FB message explaining the urgency, that I am nervous and that it is ok if she is not ready but to please let me know because I am anxious. She hasn’t responded.
The last time she was at my place, I fixed her some coffee and a sandwich since it was late and she had worked all day. I even gave her a chocolate for the ride home. Why would she be doing this???
My wedding is 2 weeks from now. I leave in 10 days and I am just so worried to have to find a dress in this time and lose all the money I spent already in veil, hoop skirt, and everything to match MY dress which was ordered back in October. Please, please pray for me and for the lady to show up today or call me or something!!!
My dress is Allure 2701 and it has already been altered by taking it in at the waist and doing the buzzle.
