Alteration Time Guide


When you go online or call to set up an appointment, it could be two weeks before an opening is available.

2-3 weeks — FITTINGS

From 1st fitting to 2nd fitting, 2-3 weeks is my turnaround time, depending upon workload. I do not want more than three weeks (4 tops) between fittings. *** If a dress does not zip or is more than 3 sizes too big see below add 2-3 weeks for additional fitting.


I want dresses to be completed and picked up at least two weeks prior to wearing date. I do all the work myself, and if I got sick or a family emergency came up, I would need this time to reschedule.

6-7 weeks — This is the minimum amount of time to alter Maids, Mothers, and Prom.

***Additional 2-3 weeks Dress is mis-sized. There are always exceptions to this timeline; sometimes an extra fitting is needed. If a dress is too small and bodice doesn’t fit I will not be able to hem until bodice is fitting correctly which means an extra fitting. If a dress (wedding gown) is extra big and there is a lot of bodice work I will not hem until bodice is fitting correctly. Sometimes I need to tweak my work. :)

Wedding Gowns I like 8-10 weeks; usually, there is more work, and I like to have work done and gown ready four weeks before wear date.
