Wedding Dress Alterations

Does anyone know of anyone in Chicago who can provide great alterations for a lower price than boutiques? I am just starting to look and it seems like the salons are all very expensive but the most reliable. Thoughts?

    The Chicago board used to be much more active a few years ago. Back then, you could not discuss alterations without mentioning Mary Catomy. She still does alterations and her reviews continue to be outstanding. http://www.yelp.com/biz/mary-catomy-bridal-alterations-schiller-park

    The price of alterations will vary based on what needs to be done/ your dress. I used Julia Needlman for my alterations and had many compliments on my wedding day.

    I used the Dress Doctor is Water Tower Place. She wasn't inexpensive but she did an amazing job. She made my mom's dress from scratch. And it was perfect for her.

  • I went with Mary Catomy about 2 years ago. She took my dress in probably 6 sizes (at least), and it was extremely reasonable. If you just need regular alterations, she should be able to do it for a very good price! The thing is you need to call her immediately - she just barely got me on her schedule 6 months in advance of our date.
