I went to the gal that does costume work and alterations for the SF Opera… she charged about 500 to get the top remade; cups put in, spaghetti straps remaid, hemmed but since I had beading and no waist seam she had to rebead everything, and a bustle put in.

I think mine were $500. I had to get 4 in. taken in on the beaded top, cups sewn in, hemmed, and bustled. My dress was assymmetrical with ruffles, so it made things more difficult.
