A little information about Bridal/Evening gown alterations that you may not know: 

The process of fitting and altering any gown is much more precise and involved than other types of alterations.  Gowns must be fitted carefully to enhance the figure and silhouette.  Many factors determine the seamstress time, and ultimately the price involved.  One of  these is the number of layers in the dress as each will require a hem.  Other factors may include intricate beadwork, dress design changes, and unusual designs.  Renee will communicate these items to you at your fitting, and offer alternatives to contain time and costs while achieving the proper fit


These are “average” prices only.  As mentioned, our gown pricing may be more or less, depending on the fabric, construction detail and beadwork.
