      My alterations are only $120 to take in the top, add cups, hem the bottom, and bustle it. I was sooo excited when I got the estimate. The lady has great references too...We'll see!

                Just returned from my fitting with a different seamstress. The quote was only $220 for a hem, bustle, shortened straps and taking the gown in on the sides. I'm so relieved and excited!! $220 is sooooo much better than $625 - $775. ~ Just thought I'd share.....

                Tammy ~ I'm looking forward to hearing how your goes today!

                  Jessalyn, I am so happy that you found a place that can fix your dress. That other quote was outrageous. I do hope they do a great job!
