If I have a wedding dress alteration business and a bride contracted me to make her dress but she broke the contract and did not pay full price?

We came to the conclusion on making it as close to the design as possible. Then 2 days before the wedding she wanted me to remake the dress because she did not like the new design and did not want the long train any more. I had less then 24 hours to remake. Do to the short time the dress was not perfect and had some issue on the day of the wedding. She is now going a notification letter. What are my rights?

If you are owed the money for the work that you did for the bride I would write her sending an invoice demanding payment to be made by a certain date. Keep a copy of the letter for future use and need. If not paid by the demand date, your recourse seems to be small claims court against the bride.
