Ugh, I'm late to the party and hope that you at least called the e-vet and heard what they had to say.

Personally I'd take her in to be on the safe side. Back when I had my terrier mix he managed to get out all his stitches the day I brought him home from his neuter. I called the vet and asked if he was supposed to have stitches and was told yes. When I said that they were gone I was told to bring him right back.

Your dog could get the incision dirty and it will be in danger of getting infected. You might be able to leave her to morning, but personally I would not take the chance with an open surgical wound.

If she managed that because she does not have the cone of shame, aka elizabethen collar, then ask for one at the vet and make sure she wears it when you cannot be watching her. I really wish I had known about them when I had my terrier, I could have saved myself a lot of money, and my dog a lot of unnecessary pain and an infection because he would not leave the incision alone.

Thanks for updating us!

It looked like it had opened to me, but was not infected or anything. I'm glad that your girl is doing well and that it turned out to be nothing to be concerned about.
