- Wedding: May 2012
Went to my first fitting appointment today. Lady gave me an estimate of $500-550 for the alterations I need… cups sewn in, hem (kinda complicated, have to do from the seam at thighs instead because of intricate bottom), add netting/crinoline for more poof, bustle, altering back to a V instead of straight across to avoid the back fat spillage, and any little nip/tuck to make it perfect….
I think that’s pretty reasonable and for being in SF! I went to a bridal salon that had awesome yelp reviews and they have an in-house seamstress and willing to take outside dresses. The lady was honest and I liked her!…. now let’s hope her work is awesome as well. I go back for 2nd fitting first week of April!
