That's another story my dear. This first dress fitting i was charged $220 for getting it taken in on both sides, the boob cups sewn in and to fix the sweatheart neckline so it lies more up against my skin. Anyway that's what they do after the first dress fittting. If by the time I go back to the second dress fitting (which this time they charge for the hem and getting my belt sewn on) and i have another dress size lost (which they said is 10 pounds) then they have to charge me another $220 because they basically have to do the work all over again. She said because i have a corset back, i could get away with losing 5 more without having to take in both sides but she said 10 pounds would require it to be taken in again. Scam. They certainly know how to make money off this stuff. I wasn't told how much the hem would cost yet because i will find that out the second dress fitting. But she said my hem will cost more because of the lace and beading on the bottom.

That's ridiculous!  They should do the hem and belt first and then everything else the 2nd time you go in.  My lady pinned my dress for the hem and told me to let her know by the end of February if I change my mind on shoes.  Do you need a bustle?

oh yes I am getting a bustle too. Which will be priced up my second dress fitting.

 

oh Yeah that's how they do it apparently. They always do the alterations for being taken in first. I wonder why? So more money can be made.

My seamstress took my dress out twice and I only got charged one. I wasn't at a bridal shop though and unsure if that makes a difference. My lady took my dress out between the 1 and 2 fitting and did a temp hem to see if I liked it. Also bustle was done. All she did a between the 2 and 3 was take it out again. At 3 I approved everything and it was all final (completed hem stitching) at pick up. It may not have needed a 4 but I forgot my sandals one time.
