Does anyone know of a reasonably priced seamstress in NYC? I bought the prettiest Amsale tulle ballgown from the Saks sample sale and had spent $395 at J Scheers to clean it. Now I just found out their recommended seamstress Kiki Kronis’s start rate is $450 which is really a LOT more than what I can afford.
I am looking to shorten the dress by probably an inch or so and probably no other alteration is needed as the dress fits me like a glove (hopefully less so by the time of the wedding as I am need to lose some bridal fat by then).
Can someone help? What should I expect to pay in these kind of alterations??
