Where are you in Maine?  I used and liked Svetlana designs in Yarmouth.

If I am remembering correctly I think it was around $225 for my alterations, which were taking in the bust, hem, and bustle.  She is right on Main St… http://www.svetlanadesign.com/

Ditto on the Svetlana recommendation! I actually have an appointment with her tomorrow morning.

I bought my dress at Priscilla of Boston in NYC, then moved from Brooklyn to Maine. PoB was completely unaccomodating and was unable to schedule my 2nd fitting any of the weekends I was to be in the city (even with several weeks notice). We ended up having them ship my dress up to Maine, and Svetlana was more than willing to do the alterations for me.

With my wedding in less than a month, Svetlana completely eased my mind! I also know lots of people who have used her, so I have loads of confidence.

You’ll find that she’s pretty no-nonsense… I expected to get all excited and emotional during my fittings, but she had me in and out so fast I didn’t really have time to!  She gets the job done though 🙂
