I would imagine it would be different for every dress and every body type.

I would start making calls to a couple of different seamstresses in your area and start getting price quotes and then go from there.

mine was 15$ to change from a local seamstress. To add bustle (3 point) , add cups, change neckline, steam, take out back panel underneath corsette cost me 42.00$ See pics below. 🙂 Good Luck!

i took my dress to a seamstress too (not affiliated with any bridal salon) i’m sure it depends on the dress and the area  but i paid about $250 for all alterations (hem, bustle, fitting and sweetheart neckline)

Mine would have been more than $50 to do it, but in the end, I got it middle pulled down by tension using a piece of boning to pull the middle closer to my bustier. It actually turned out perfectly and was “free” (included with the rest of my alterations).


It was going to cost at least the $50 because of the complex beading at the top which would have had to be pulled out and redone.

How easy is it to get a quote from a seamstress? I’ve never had any other tailoring/alterations done, and I have no idea what’s reasonable in this area… but I, too, want to convert a straight neckline to a sweetheart!
