I was just wondering if anyone has had experience altering a dress. My aunt would like me to use her wedding dress and it would mean a lot to both of us, I'm just concerned about the cost. I've been told by one seamstress that her base price is $1500 and the extra material might bump it up to $2000. I just want to make sure this is the going rate for such a project. I could get a dress for much less than that, it just means a lot so I want to see what my options are. I've heard good things about Hollywood Bridal, but am unaware of their prices. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciates!
