I custom ordered my trumpet Lazaro 1.5 inches shorter on the bodice. I was quoted $300, but they gave it to me for free since I purchased the dress at a trunk show. Not sure if this can be done after the fact, especially if there’s beading or other details on the bodice.

My seamstress shortened the bodice on my dress (from the top) and made the neckline a sweetheart; it was originally way too high.  I don’t know what it costs to have it done though (total was $600+ for all alterations).
