@Averne:  Did you find a seamstress you liked? I’m looking for one in the Philly area as well for a hem job and bustle. Thanks!

@nancyphilly:  I just ended up going with Nilah. I’m sure she’s not the cheapest option, but she did come recommended to me by two of my friends and their dresses were great. For the hem, bustle, and cups sewn in it cost $300. I know my friend that got her ruffled dress hem and bustled also cost the same. I would think the ruffles would cost more, but apparently not.

She was really great and flexible with appointment times. I’m an out of town bride that resides in San Diego and she was able to get me in for an appointment when I was in town and gave me a lot of options as far as when I could go back for a second fitting. 

It looks like your wedding’s not until April so you’ve got some time. I’d do a bit of shopping, but if you don’t feel like looking around and can spare the $300 I would feel confident going with her.

I used Irina Sigal and she did an AMAZING job. She wasn’t super cheap, but she really did a fantastic job and I’d absolutely recommend her to everyone!
