Unlike the clothes we normally wear, much more time and detailed tailoring goes into a gown. The number of fittings depend on the alterations required. Your dress may just need hemming, or extensive alterations involving side and bust seams, replacing a zipper or more.
What you can expect:
Allow 2-3 weeks between each fitting.
The more alterations on your dress needs, and the more complex your dress is, the more fittings you will need. If your weight changes at all (beyond 3-5 pounds), there is obviously a surcharge as we will have to alter the dress accordingly.
Pinning Fees: If you meet with the seamstress and decide not to continue with alterations, you will be charged a pinning fee. You have 3 days in which to make such decisions and alert the seamstress. There is NO cancellations for rush garments.
