Today, my sister accused me of being selfish because I told her I couldn't make her dress and her bridesmaid dresses for her wedding in August. I work full time, I run a side business, and I'm doing a PhD, and she knows this. My mother is taking her side. FML

Was she gonna pay you for it...cause that's a lot of work for one person who is that busy

Stay firm, OP. Tell her that you love her and are excited for her wedding but there is no way you can make all those dresses. Maybe offer to go dress shopping with her one day, that way you can both bond over the experience.

Don't budge.

Tell her that you gotta hire people to do that, and ask how she wants to pay them.

I agree. OP can say: "Sure I'll help you. But you have to pay me and those I have to pay to do my work."

Don't give in, they expect too much and always will. Selfish people are like that!!!

How are they being selfish for not dropping everything to make multiple dresses for their sister. They would have to quit their jobs to do all that work. Are you the OP'S sister? This comment would make sense if you did.

She must be a bridezilla

"Here ya go Sis, this is a pattern and you can go buy fabric. You can either learn to sew or work all my shifts and attend all my classes until August. Your choice. Have fun!!"

Skip the wedding and give them a reason to think you're selfish. I'm sorry your sister's rude OP.

No, no, she should go to the wedding. Wearing white.

Better yet, make a wedding dress and wear that.
