Around $700 for hemming, having the bodice taken in and cups added, beading/petal work post-bodice alteration, and an 8-point French bustle. I’m in Chicago.

I have been quoted around $400.. $280 to take it in and $120 for ten layer tulle skirt shortening… but that is Aussie dollars so right now probably about the cost of a cup of coffee US$ 😉

My salon caps alterations at $300 which is nice.
