    okay Ladies I was reading a Thread yesterday about out of this world alteration cost! I have my first Alterations in two weeks. Is hemming the dress for the lenght the most costly thing?

      They quoted me 125 to get my dress hemmed. It fits great everywhere else. But I also bought my dress from them so I don't know if it is discounted. I thought the 125 bucks was a lot until I read some of the other posts!

          I got a BM dress altered at David's a few months ago. The alterations cost almost as much as the dress! I had to get it hemmed a lot and there were 2 different layers, so that is why they told me they charged so much. If I were you, I'd ask around and see if anyone knows of a good and affordable seamstress.

          OMG I've been dreading this. I bought my dress there, and I know I seriously need about a foot taken off the length. I'm worried cause the hem is not nice and straight, like a perfect circle, its got a bit of a train. Plus I need it to be bustled, anyone know what that runs?
          OK, off to read Ann's link above..

            I heard that it's expensive at DB.. I'm a little worried about it but I have to wait until my dress comes in to really see what the damage $$ is

              I got mine altered there and they charged me $35 to hem, $50 for the bustle. I guess it depends on the dress style too...

              I mean really, if it comes down to it obviously I don't want to trip all over the hem all day/night, I really don't have a choice. But maybe I can make them give me a discount cause they don't offer petite length gowns, only gowns made for glamazons!

                david's tends to be more expensive.

                  It is 50 dollars for the bustle, bussle (SP) and mine has a train a pretty big one that is rounded. They said 125 for that and I need about two inches taken up.
