I brought in a specific bridesmaids dress online a little over a month
before the wedding. The waist and hips fit perfect, but the bust was
about 2.5 inches too tight. I took the dress to the local seamstress.
The owner was very friendly and we discussed how she would alter it
by taking a little length off the bottom and inserting small triangles
under the armpits.

Even though I brought the dress to her well in advance (almost a full
month before I needed it), she kept the dress until two days before I
had to leave for the wedding. When i came to pick it up, she had
inserted two triangles on either side of the zipper in the back
(instead of the way we had agreed up earlier). It was an alarmingly
obvious quick fix, but I didn't have to time argue (the wedding was
just around the corner) and then she told me it would cost my $115.
Never before that moment had she mentioned she would charge me $55 per
hour.

I was shocked, but felt caught between a rock and a hard place. I
felt violated by the cost of such shoddy work, but also had to have
the dress for the wedding. After much debate (and seeing her "true
colors"), she finally agreed to reimburse me $50. She told me she
would put the check in mail. After a month and no sign of the check,
I called her again. She said she would put the check in the mail the
next day. I waited two weeks, and still no check. I called again
after two weeks and she tells me that she has changed her mind. She
refuses to reimburse me for the $50 we agreed upon.
