If she’s independent and making a living off of being a seamstress, chances are she’s good at what she does.

Well, even if she does screw up, you still have plenty of time to get it fixed. I wouldn’t worry about her screwing up tho. I bet it will look great!

It’ll be fine. She does this for a living. And I agree that extra lace on the bottom will likely look like it was supposed to be that way!

I agree with PP that if she owns her own business and she is doing independent tailoring, her business is her living and she is good at what she does. I bought my dress from DB too but I refuse to use their alterations services, WAY TOO EXPENSIVE!! I am also going to an independent seamstress to add lace straps. 🙂

@Weetzie:  did you reserach her and check references first? if so you should be fine

I’m sure it will be fine! She’s a seamstress! Unlike DB seamstresses, who are generally high school/college students or retirees!
