Alteration question


Recommended Posts

Okay ladies...I am in a wedding in september and one a month later in october and lucky for me I get to wear the same exact dress!!!

 

The dress is below...my question is, have any of you used this dress for your bridesmaids and if so, did they have to alter it (length) and how much was the range.

 

I am short and have to have it altered and I didn't want to take it to a bridal store because I think they charge alot. So I took it to the cleaners who also does alterations and they said they wanted to charge me $100!! Is this normal? I realize that it has 5 layers of lining underneath...but yikes! I think I paid like $20-$30 a couple years ago to have another bridesmaid dress altered and it was just one layer or two straight across and this one is wavy.

 

I just want to find out if I should look around or just have them do it....

i had a bridesmaid dress altered a few months ago, it had 3 layers and i paid about $95. i am guessing i could have had it done cheaper - but didn't have time to shop around. this was at a dry cleaners/alterations place - so seems like a similar scenario

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this BM dress!!!! Who makes it? You are very lucky that you can wear it for 2 weddings.

I think that sounds about right for the alterations.
