Dress Alterations

Hi ladies!  I'm sure there is post about this somewhere but I couldn't find it!

I am looking for a recommendation for an excellation alterations person around the Chicagoland area!   I would like someone that gives great ideas and is reasonably priced.

Thanks in advance for your help girls!

    Is she pricey or about average?

    I am using Mary Catomy, she works out of her home, her prices are good, but she books very early!

    Lizzie, I needed pretty extensive alterations.  The dress needed to be taken in 3 inches everywhere, bustle added and hem needed to be shortened. I think she charged me $250?

    Great, thanks for your help girls! 

    I SOOO wanted to use Mary Catomy as I have heard nothing but amazing things about her...but I called her yesterday and she is booked!  My wedding is the end of October!  I was so upset. 

    So any other recommendations help!

    I am using Sue's in Naperville.  She is very reasonably priced, and had been great to work with so far.  She even agreed to squeeze me in for an extra fitting when I changed my mind about my bustle.  Good luck to you!
