Here is what will be done:
-side seams are coming in 1 inch on each side
-cups sewn in
-modesty panel on corset back is being removed
-neckline is being completely changed...it is currently just a straight strapless neckline and she is changing it to a sweetheart. (this is about half of the total cost of alternations but for me it is a must because I REALLY want a sweetheart neckline)
so i went in for first measurements today and she will be done with everything on it by the end of march...then she told me that when I go back at the end of march that should be it! I probably won't have to back again and will be able to take my dress home with me!

I took my dress in last week to a tailor shop that everyone I know highly recommends. After reading this thread, I feel a bit better about what I'm being charged.
Here's the breakdown:
-Taking out the side seams
-Hemming the bottom (Is this how you say it?)
-Adjusting the boob area, making it bigger and tighter
-Taking out a little in the hips
I go in for my first fitting at the end of May...I've lost so much weight, went from a size 10 to a size 4 in a few months and I'm stressed to the max right now and still losing weight - DIOS MIO!!!!
My guy is charging $300, and I almost shit! Let's hope my weight maintains, cause I can't afford anymore....

-have it taken in everywhere(its mermaid fit and a little loose on me)
-add a corset (or something to make it sit up on me so im not pulling it up all the time)
Thats it.. maybe it won't be that much after reading all these other posts?!
