Q: What’s your price range? I have budget!
A: Pricing varies widely for each gown and body. Based on work need it is impossible to responsibly give any estimate over the phone or via photos! Items have to be reviewed in person.
Q: I only need a few alterations?
A: We always start with a consultation appointment, so we can give you an estimate! For a $40 fee and no commitment, we will take one hour and go over the possibilities and necessities of alterations on your gown. We will be able to give you an estimate (not a fixed price). For a more accurate estimate, bring your shoes and your undergarments.
After the consultation, you’ll receive a follow-up email and/or text detailing a price breakdown, recommended schedule for further fitting dates, and any questions we discussed at your consultation.

A: Yes! If you commit to having your alterations done by us, the $40 fee is subtracted from the alterations total.
Q: What does the alterations process look like?
A: Fitting dates can now be scheduled for the first, second, and third fittings. Sometimes gowns that need more work need a fourth or fifth fitting!
