- have the bridal shop order the correct size of dress,
- have said dress altered,
- have the zipper of said dress repaired (after the seamstress broke it), and
- have said dress repaired AGAIN (after the seamstress claimed to have fixed it)
...have made it clear that I still merit my nickname. The bodice of the two-piece dress is in the hands of yet another seamstress (hopefully a competent one this time) and I will not get it back until tomorrow afternoon. Did I mention that the wedding is on Saturday? Yes, this Saturday. And I still haven't had a chance to try on the bodice, since the zipper is an integral part of the outfit. But shhhhhh! don't tell the bride about all this. She doesn't need the added stress. Not that I do, either, mind you.
