And, she apparently used to have a tailor shop in the area and sold it, then she realized how much she missed working. So, she now works out of her home and she said that she gets lots of business from local coordinators and she is a member of some bridal coordinator association or something....She said that her past brides have posted about her on the Knot, but I couldn't find anything when i looked this afternoon.....but, i can never find anything on the know.......anyway, enough rambling! I'm happy!

Tammy ~ I'm looking forward to hearing how your goes today!
Well my dress required not one but two bustle's, the sides are being takin in about an inch on each side and she's doing some work on my straps,, cost of alteration, $205.00. Cost of bride falling over dead in the hot cabo sun, after being in her dress for longer then 5 minutes,,, priceless. :-)
My next alteration is on May 8th..

We are going to be hot aren't we? I was sweating while I tried it on for her....physically hot and nervous about the alterations.

That's probably why it's going to be so expensive - they'll probably have to hem your skirt from the waist like they did with mine which is a lot more work and a lot more expensive unfortunately...
