I still have not talked to anyone about altering my dress. It’s HUGE in the boobs area, and is too long for me (bought it at Filene’s event).
I can’t afford an expensive seamstress, but don’t know how to start. Do you just call someone to ask them – do you have to bring the dress? How do they know how much it will cost if they don’t see it (I assume the fabric matters).
I’m confuzzled and I need to get a move on this!

You are going to have to go to a seamstress and try it on in front of them so they can determine the pricing for the alterations.

Erg, that’s annoying. So I gotta lug around my dress to different people until I can figure out who I can afford? lol – I guess that makes sense.

I can recommend this Massachusetts seamstress: http://studiosofandreazax.com/
She’s about a 90 minute drive from Boston, but perhaps would travel or suggest someone closer to where you live (she used to be in Somerville, MA).

If you know generally what you need altered, I think you can call, but as others said it would probably be preferred if you went in. I would check places like weddingwire and other sites that have vendor reviews in your area, or ask here in your city’s thread!
