Trouble with a buyer, need advice on what to do next

So back in October, a person on one of the FB Lolita sales communities wanted to purchase a dress and two commissioned hair accessories from me. We both agreed on a 3-week payment plan back then. The total cost of the items equaled $75.

Well now it's January and I've still only received $15 of that amount (which she never made a payment in October when the plan started, I got the $15 in November). She never gets on FB to read my messages. I feel like I'm being annoying if I send a messages every so often and never get answered. Probably every 20 or so days, I do get a response saying "I'm sorry I haven't responded I'm just so busy, I just don't have the money yet" or something of that nature.

On December 17th is when I received her latest message that of course said she was too busy to get on FB very much and she said that she would be making a payment that weekend. And that didn't happen. Since then I have heard nothing from her.

So I guess what I'm asking is what should I do next? Keep waiting? Or just try to sell the dress to someone else? I don't want to feel like I'm going behind her back if she's really just that busy. But I also feel like I'm just being left hanging as a seller and that I'll never actually get the money. So I really just don't know what to do. This is the first time I have ever offered someone a payment plan.
