LindsLou - were you happy with your alterations? Can you pass me Connie's contact info?
Ohhhhhh yes, Connie is REALLY quick with alterations, you tell her when you need the dress by and she will have it done! Especially if all you need is minor tweaks, you are good to go! Maybe give her warning if you are doing it in a short period of time, but we are still waiting for a BM dress to show up and still need alterations on it. I've had to alter a BM dress before and it was great! She's sooo laid back and relaxed.
Her info is...

I still need my dress altered and bustled...could someone pass me Connie's info also? Is that the best/most affordable place to go to? My dress is fairly simple along the sides so taking it in a little shouldn't be too much of a problem, so I'd like to find someone cheap.
Oh, if you've got 3 months...you've got plenty of time! I had the hips taken in, bustled, added tulle underneath, fixed up the bust area so I wouldn't have to wear a bra and she's adding a bustle. I don't think she's started on my dress yet because I didn't bring my shoes with me because I didn't need it hemmed but she needs to see them for the bustle, oops! I'm not sure how much its going to cost at this point, but I'll let you know.

I bought my dress next door from Cameo & Cufflinks at Parisian and they don't have alterations there, they send you elsewhere. I would think they would offer you a deal on alterations since you bought the dress there?
