“Well, we’re going to have to hem quite a lot. Let’s put your shoes on and see if that helps? …Not really…”
Could someone please explain how the alterations for a wedding dress cost half as much as the dress itself? Does this seem right? I don’t care if they have to take three yards off the bottom so I can walk (slight exaggeration), it still seems horrendously exorbitant! On the upside, it’s still a gorgeous dress, and I saved it from near ruin. When I went in to get it altered the seamstresses were working on the same dress for another girl…and they had turned it into some sort of Jane-Austen-wanna-be-meets-prom-dress-gone-horribly wrong mistake. I am not spending money on something like this only to have it turned into some monstrosity. Gah, what an escape!
