First I thought you were really angry about your seamstress demanding a ridiculous sum of money. But it’s great that it was only $40! I don’t think it would be insulting to give $50 since she provided a service and you are allowed to tip the person who provides great service. It’s not required or a recommended to give your seamstress a tip but you can if you want! By The Way where is the seamstress located? It would help other bees to go to get great alterations done at a good price.

Wow, that’s awesome!  I knew mine would be pricey, so before I purchased my dress, I locked in an agreement in the contract that alterations couldn’t top $375.

Thats awesome!  I just paid $35 for a bridesmaids dress, to be altered, what a great price for a wedding dress alteration!

That’s incredible! I wish mine were only $40. A thank you gift and an offer to recommend her to others is always appreciated by vendors. Where in Vermont?

Wow, that’s awesome.  I was totally expecting you to be upset at how much (not how little) the alterations cost!

That’s super cheap for alterations.  $40!!!  I spent about $150 for alterations which included a bustle and bra that was sewn into my dress including boning.
