Pricing for Homecoming Dress Alterations
The hemming of your dress will run 35.00-150.00. The price is determined by the construction, sweep circumference and amount of layers to be hemmed.
Bustles run 25.00 to 75.00
Taking in bodice:
Taking in the bodice of your dress will run 25.00-85.00 per set of seams. This price is determined by the construction, such as beading, number of layers being altered and if boning needs to be reset. Darts start at 15.00. Shortening shoulders/straps start at 15.00.
Taking in the skirt:
Taking in the skirt part of the dress runs 45.00 and up. This price is determined by the construction, such as beading and number of layers needing to be altered.
Prices ranges usually run less than 150.00 for bridesmaid / prom dresses. Wedding Gowns 150.00 - 400.00. Beaded and lace gowns are the most expensive to alter because of all the hand work.
Due to the complexity of most bridal gowns and the volume of business I produce, I request that you contact me at least 30 days before the wedding (or date of wedding photography), although more advance notice is appreciated!
Getting Ready for Homecoming Fittings
If you don't have the shoes that go with the dress, at least bring a shoe that has the heel that you desire. The heel that we measure your hem with will be the heel height you will need to shop for. Changing the height later can make the hem length wrong.
Bring your foundation.
Think about how your dress is made and what under garments will go with that dress. Most formals are now strapless. For a strapless dress you will need a long line/ low line bra. A regular strapless with show above the back of the dress so the bra you pick need to fasten low on your back. For a halter top, you will want a convertible bra that has straps that can be configured to accommodate a halter top dress. Some women like corsets for extra support. Try Fredericks of Hollywood for corsets. Spanks are great too. Some people love them; some people hate them.
Now, when you go shopping for these items be aware that the sales people want to sell you anything. Don't go and buy out the store. Before buying ask, "What is your return policy?"
