Where do you live? I’m sure bees have recommendations!

Also, many seamstresses in my area are not great at phone/email communication. Do any of the ones that you were recommended that’s brick and mortar store? I would go in to talk since calling isn’t working. 

ETA oops I just realized that you posted this in Boston. Sorry! I’m no help. Could you call the shop you got your dress from for recommendations? Good luck!

I’m planning on using Chris O’Hare.  I heard of her here on the boards, she works out of her house in Quincy.  I have my first fitting today, I can let you know how it goes if you are interested.  Her number is 617 471 7366.

Worst case can you go back to where you bought it?

I used Chris O’ Hare last summer for my alterations and she was amazing. Her setup is out of her house and highly disorganized, but she’s really accomodating, cheap, and her work is amazing.

Just got home a bit ago.  She deff seems to know her stuff.  I agree with @leebaby711 her set up is a bit cluttered.  I felt totally comfortable leaving my dress with her.  She is taking it in as well as up, and she is going to make me detachable straps and 2 french bustles.  I am also going to have her add some green ribbon or toole on the botte.  She seems very easy to work with, I stupidly didn’t ask for pricing though so I can’t comment on that.  

Good luck  @ItsDestiny!
