It’s hard to say.

We also have a family friend who does alterations and she is SOOOOOO reasonable. When my sister needed her prom dress taken in, like, 1/2 an inch, the shop wanted to charge her $250. This woman did it for $15.

(and she used to work at a bridal salon and is a professional seamstress with her own business so we know she knows what she’s doing).

I would maybe find out how much a shop would charge and go from there??

Or you could just ask her — and if what she says sounds too low, just send her a gift card in the mail as an extra thank you or something.
