I just picked up my wedding dress from the tailor’s shop on Saturday.  I was very pleased with the alterations.  I had the train removed (too long), the straps shortened and some fabric from the train added to the bustline because it plunged a bit too low in the cleavage.  It was only $60 for all the work they did and it only took a week. 

I’m so glad I chose a tailor over a bridal shop!  Much less hassle & quicker turn-around.  The girls at the shop loved working on my dress.  They said it was a break from hemming pants and working on men’s garments all the time.  At first I was hesitant about going to a tailor, but they advertised as also working on wedding gowns.  I had a great consultation with them when we took the gown in to be altered and they did a fabulous job.

Just wait until you get your dress back and it fits perfectly!  It’s even better than the day you picked your dress. You’re going to feel like a princess when you put it on again!!! Post some pics when you get your dress. Smile
