I just finished altering the bridesmaid dress I'm wearing for my best friend's wedding. Oh, the manifold talents of the poor!
Too long, double layered dress: $150.
Alterations at David's Bridal: $20-50 more bucks.
Severing over 3 inches and sewing two separate hems without straight pins, tape measure or mannequin myself? $0.
What now, overpriced seamstresses?
