hi! Ok so my dress isn’t similar to yours but I was also worried about hemming mine! It has a satin trumpet style with a tulle sheath overlay. The seamstress just went crazy with her pins and it looked pretty good, she pretty much had to do it like two separate dresses. I’m paying 300 for my alterations and that’s including hem, bustle, and adding a one shoulder! I hope this helps!

With that kind of skirt, the seamstress will have to do a few separate hems.  The stiff tulle underneath will be trimmed and hemmed on its own.  The bottom tier of the skirt will also be hemmed separately.  Depending on how short you need the bottom tier taken up, you may also have to have the next tier up a little as well so they still look close in size.  I can’t help with price- my dress had a different kind of skirt.

@jess226:  I don’t know of any in LA but you should easily be able to find a seamstress there! Look up reviews on yelp or somewhere for bridal alterations. I know what you mean about the cost, it’s like hello I don’t wanna spend half my dress budget on alterations but I’ve heard so many girls say they wished they went with a professional ..can you imagine having your dress not turn out right?! I went for my first fitting January 4th or so and my wedding is march 15. I decided to go 2 months out to be safe even though they said a month before was enough time
