Well, all I had was two layers hemmed and it was $80. Even for that, most places charge more like $100, I think.

 

I would estimate $120-170 for yours.

I got the flu right before my wedding and ended up losing a bunch of weight. My dress was big in the waist to begin with, so I had the waist taken in for about $50. I had a corset back and at my final fitting the seamstress scolded me bc it was tied as tightly as possible and still a little big. I freaked out and binged that week to make sure it didn’t get any bigger.

I had to gain 7 pounds to fit into my dress after I overdid it running!

@Asia:  i have allure 8908. i had the hem taken up, a french bustle sewn in and cups put in (no alterations to bust or waist sizes) and it cost me $425.

@Asia:  It was the second best month of my life! I ate ice cream, and jelly beans, and pizza, and I was still training for my half marathon, so I gained it evenly and still looked super toned!

@Asia:  exactly, mine went on credit in April and i’ve been paying it down. my dress has a lace overlay, so the hem is costing me a pretty penny. i also chose a complicated bustle. there are ways to cut that cost back.

I pretty much did the same thing.. I lost like 10 pounds and went for final alterations. I had the bust taken in and the side seams through the hips. It cost me $100 even. I almost died because I have already paid for prior alterations, but I guess I shouldn’t complain since I lost the 10 pounds I’ve been working on for years! lol
