I just went today and my total will be $170.00. That includes adding cups into the corset, adding extra beading to the top of dress (to hide a bizarre seam) and an elaborate french bustle.

I had my first fitting a few weeks ago. My entire dress is heavily beaded lace. I’m having the bodice taken in a bit, altering the neckline to be a bit more sweetheart-ish (taking away about an inch), and an American bustle. $303

It was about $150 to have my dress let out in the bust area. I’d expect it to cost an additional $150-ish to have the neckline changed.

I’m having my zipper changed to a corset, the top taken in, a hideaway strap added and a  5 point french bustle totalling $160.

Mine was $230, that was for taking the dress in and adding a bustle.

Hi from Columbus!  🙂

My alterations were $215.  Sides taken in, hips slimmed, simple bustle and hem, sweetheart deepened.

My alterations woman is a freaking MAGICIAN. She’s located in Dublin. Let me know if you’d like her info!
