  • I would ask my mother. Try asking around for a friend that does some sewing. The hem should be easy it is the waist alteration that is going to cost.

  • For what you're talking about that's a good price. You're asking someone to take apart and really remake the dress. Alterations usually cost more then to make from Scratch. They are much harder to do. After the dress is made then while the dress is being made.
