I just bought a new dress!! Yeah! I am so much happier now. I am going to need some alterations tho. Before I meet with a seamstress, is anyone willing to share what their alterations cost so I could have some insight?
I am going to need a small bustle (on a chapel train) and the bust taken in.
The dress is Marisa 612, unbeaded lace on silk.
Thanks so much for sharing!

Congrats on getting a dress! =) I’m getting a 7 point bustle and the cost is $90. I’m using my bridal salon’s seamstress. hth!

I believe my bustle is going to be around $60, but would have been closer to $100 if I got it done at the bridal salon.

My seamstress tops out at $175 for the most complicated (including bustle and taking the dress in or out) and less if it’s simple work. Alterations would have been $300-$400 if i had done it at the salon.

I have an 18 point bustle (French underbustle? I think?). Anyway, it’s massively bustled, and it cost me $155. I am getting it done at the same place I got my dress.
