luvely:  I found a seamstress in Brooklyn that I heard was good, it was a steal. I mean it was just hemming and a bustle, it’s not like I was asking for any changes to the structure of the dress.

usnavyfiance:  Def. get a second opinion. I had a delicate lace train over a silk underlayer that had to be hemmed, and that plus a bustle and taking in the back, the cap sleeves, and the bust, was only $300 in South Florida. Not a super cheap market. I went with a seamstress who makes dresses and who also is where many of the bridal boutiques send their dresses for alterations. I just went to her directly instead of through the salon.

Definitely get a second opinion. I used a seamstress here in Charleston who makes dresses and does costumes and her price was high, but not nearly that high.
