Alterations for bride

This might be a dumb question, but how far out should I do alterations? I don't need much.

Answers

  • Ask the store or the seamstress. They know how much time they need to do what you need done.
  • I bought my dress in a different state, so now I am looking for a seamstress is the other problem. What are some good tips when looking for one?
  • Ask for recommendations on your local boards.  Look at reviews of people who do alterations if it's a business listing.  Ask at your local sewing machine store! (Pfaff, etc.)  They know who does good work in the area and may have a name for you!  Only the seamstress can answer how much time they need.  Check with your local dry cleaner as they may have someone they use!
