The price for wedding gown alterations varies greatly between dresses and can be influenced by such things as:
- button/loop closure
- hem finishes including encased linings, horsehair braid, baby or narrow hemming
- width of fabric at hem
- lace/lace applique
- cut of fabric (bias vs. straightgrain)
- crinoline/tulle layers
Alterations usually start around $300 for basic fitting and hemming, but there is no minimum should your needs be minor, nor is there a pre-set cap for more complicated alterations.
The Williamsburg Seamster will gladly provide you with a proper estimate upon seeing the dress in person and on you.
