That sounds about right! My alterations were also about $300 for that amount of work.

I paid 300 for just a straight hem (235) and a bustle (65). So that doesn’t seem THAT bad.

“remove the entire back panel including a train, zipper, detail to do the alterations and then re-attach” sounds like a lot of work.

DB will charge me $170 just to shorten the skirt (6 layers).

I think that sounds normal. You are having a lot done to it.

No way. In fact, I think you got a deal.

With that amount of work, I would agree that you got a deal…..

Nope that is about right, mine last year was $300 something for bustle, steam, shorting the straps and fixing my long line bra.

That doesn’t sound bad, mine were $460. I had to have mine taken in at the waist and hips, hemmed and a 14 point bustle.

I’m getting cap sleeved added, a train replaced and bra cups added for $300.  I have not gotten the dress hemmed or taken in.  You got a sweet deal.

I paid $325 for a ton of work, and I was happy to do so – I was expecting a lot more.
