I was so stressed out because I bought a sample for VERY cheap that was way too big! It’s a 16 and I’m about a 4. My consultant assured me that their seamstress has 20+ years of experience and only charges a flat fee for each service, but after combing through posts on here I was sure it was going to cost a ton and possibly ruin the dress.
As it turns out, my dress should be suprisingly easy to alter since for some weird reason the boning fits me in just the right place as is so it really just needs to be taken in at the sides. The cost? $40!!!
I’m so so so relieved and am super excited to go back in two weeks and actually be able to lace it up! I need to find shoes by then, though. Hmmm…
Here is my dress, just in case you missed the other times I posted it. Yay!

YAY! I am sure it will fit great! A big alteration plus a great price. I have really been stressing over what mine will cost after reading some of the prices of alterations other people have mentioned.
Good luck on the shoe hunt!

@monicaking77: I need it hemmed and crinoline removed and buttons (60 of them) attatched. When I bought the dress(i bought the sample) it fit perfectly but I am hoping to lose a bit of weight because I didn’t like how big my arms looked in the pictures that were taken that day, so hopefully I will need it taken in a little.

@lovelynners: That actually doesn’t sound so bad at all! I’m sure it won’t be over the top cost wise!
