I think it depends on how much work needs to do and how difficult the fabric is to work with.  I have spent $25 on alerations to get a dress hemmed & $75 to get a dress taken in & boning removed.  It sounds like the work you need done could be a couple hundred dollars maybe . . . I might be wrong though!

I have my alterations appointment on Saturday, so I’m not exactly sure how much things will cost.  But, I do know that reputable seamstresses will provide you with an estimate before work is done.  Make appointments with a few seamstresses and take your dress with you and get their opinions.

my alterations on my dress were $250 but that was for a “french train” (5 loops) taken in around the chest, added a sweetheart neckline and taken in on the sides..but I also got mine done at davids bridal and they are insanely overpriced!
