    I had 6 fittings. My dress had a dozen (okay, 7) layers to hem and needed a bustle. She was meticulous with the hemming, and I appreciated it. I was happy to keep going back to ensure that my dress was perfect. There’s no added cost in extra fittings. I was charged for the hem and the bustle– that’s all. It was really great. Plus, I got to wear my dress a whole lot and dance around the shop when she was done with me. haha

    @rurahrah:  Five so far. One more to go! Worth all the effort if its going to fit perfectly.

    Just had my 3rd fitting last night and she’s going to hem it a little more and do a few handstitches to the bust so that there is no gap between my gown and “girls”, she will also steam and press it and I pick it up 4 days before the big day!

    Technically I had 4 but the last one was more of just a final try-on to make sure everything else was perfect! My dress had to be taken in 6 inches, and had six layers of tulle that had to be cut raw-edged while I was wearing it. It was a long process, and I almost passed out at one of my fittings from standing super still in my hot dress for 2 hours in an old building without air condiitoning!

    So far I’ve only had one fitting and tonight I’m going have a final fitting and try it on to make sure everything’s perfect.

    Unfortinately my dress and I are a plane ride away, so due to logistics I will have my second fitting just two days before the wedding (eek!!). Fortunately there wasn’t much to do, and the seamstress is someone our family has used before so we trust her work, but still, it’s a little nervewracking.
