I’d appreciate any recommendations for alterations in OC or LA counties (prefer OC). I have an intricately beaded Augusta Jones lace dress that needs MAJOR work done.
- Major structural change: need it altered from a-line to mermaid/trumpet
- Buttons added down the back
- Hips taken out to release bunching
- Cups rounded out, boning removed in chest area (too pointy and stiff now), cups added, sweetheart deepened

My alterations lady was great! For mine she took it (a lot in the bust), added cups, added bustle, added extra tulle underneath, and steamed it. I think it came out to between $280 and $300 for mine (not totally sure as I paid for my mom’s to be hemmed also).
A friend of mine had her dress in the same way you did and it looked fabulous!
It’s called La Rose Alterations in Westminster 🙂
