Do the alterations first, then take it to the cleaners. I bought samples as well and started alterations 4 months before.

Alterations should be done at least 6-8 weeks before hand. But if you are going to do your alterations first, and then get it cleaned, you’ll need to find out how long the cleaning process will take, and start alterations even earlier.

I think the best thing to do is talk to the seamstress that will be doing the alterations and see how much time she needs. It might only take a few weeks, or if there is intricate beadwork or a lot of fabric folds, the seamstress might want to start alterations earlier.
