Wedding Gown and Dress Alterations For Less

Category: Services
Description
Getting married? Going to be a bridesmaid? Got a special occasion to attend? Does your dress fit you perfectly?? If not, come see Sami and get your alterations done for half the cost (or less) than you would at the boutique. I was trained at one, so you'll be getting all the skills without the fancy price tag. I don't believe in taking advantage of a bride's need to feel beautiful. My prices are honest and reasonable. You could LITERALLY save hundreds, and the lead time will be much shorter. No rush fees.

Prices vary according to type of dress and complexity of construction:


Regular Dress Hem - $10-$30
Wedding Gown Hem - $30-$70
Take in sides - $10-$30
Take up halter - $5-$15
Take in zipper - $15-$30
Shorten straps - $5-$15
Take in princess seams - $10-$30

Bustles!! (The gorgeous way to keep your train off the ground)
Over bustles (American) - $5 per loop
Under bustles (French) - $7 per loop
Royal bustles - $7 per pull
Bow Bustles - $5 per loop and must provide Ribbon
