    Ok I'm really stressed about this prom. My baby sis goes to prom on Friday. Now here is why I am stressed. A friend of my mom is a phenomenal seamstress so she asked her if she would make my sisters dress. The women happily agreed and we began searching for patterns and material. So my sister finally found something that she liked and we dropped it off at the seamstress. So fast forward two months later and this woman still hasn't started the dress. I know this woman is a professional and can probably finish a dress quickly but she should have been had this done. My thing is she's had two months to finish this dress why isn't it done. The prom is Friday and my sister has no dress. We are all on edge about this dress because what if she doesn't finish or if it doesn't fit, is she going to have time to fix it. I'm so upset about this I could scream. I really hope she finishes because if she doesn't she's going to have me, my mom, and my little sister to deal with.



    Hey ladies sorry for the wait on the update but things around here have been a little crazy. Well to make a long story short the dress wasn't finished in enough time so my mom and I had to make a quick run to Macy's and buy a new one. The seamstress called at 5:13 and said the dress was done but it was too late and we had already bought a new one. You know we were all ticked but we didn't let that spoil the evening. So my sister made it to the prom with her handsome date (he was a cutie hehe) and had fun. Thanks so much for the support ladies I don't know what I would have done with out you all. Ok now for the pics, sorry if they are big.

      Yowza!!! Has anyone contacted the seamstress recently? What's her reasoning for not starting.. has she started yet?! I totally understand why you're so upset!!! Although we don't have prom here in Northern Ontario, I gather that it's a pretty HUGE deal to girls!!
      Has she looked at any stores for dresses just in case something doesn't go right?
      My fingers are crossed that all goes well!!

        My mom talked to her today. She said tomorrow they would do a fitting and then she would start to sew the dress and it would be done on Wednesday. I'm sorry that you don't have prom there and yes it is a huge deal. I went to 4 lol. It's so much fun. It makes me really look forward to planning my wedding because I was on the prom committee. Well back to my sister. I think we have a few back up choices. I know there is a dress boutique near my home and they have gorgeous gowns so that will be the alternative if we need it. I really hope this comes together.

          It really doesn't take that long to make a dress with a sewing machine. I bet it works out and it will be ready on Wed! But, ya what's with her waiting so long? Nuts!

            Oh man, I'd be panicked too. Does your sister have a backup picked out that you guys can buy just in case? I hope everything works out.

              I know there is a dress in Cache that she likes so if we need to buy one that will probably be the one.

                my colleague's wedding is july 11th and she is having her dress made by a seamstress. the seamstress said she won't even measure her until the end of june just in case there is a weight gain/loss. maybe it's for the best!

                  Well ladies my little sister is at the seamstress right now as I type this getting fitted. I'm still waiting to hear back from my mom and sister but I will let you ladies know how everything went.

                    Oh my...I can't even imagine. I would definitely be ringing her like crazy and going up there to see what is going on. That is completely ridiculous and very unprofessional.

                      Well ladies I have an update. The dress still isn't ready. It's not even put together like she said it would be. I don't know how this is going to turn out. I hope that dress is done tomorrow or it's going to get ugly.
