Dress Alterations - Hemming?
Posted: Apr 24, 2005 8:32 PM

Hey girls, I'm not sure how many of you may have run across this yet, but I'm debating whether or not to hem my dress. My mom and I question if it is even long enough to bother hemming it, but the lady at the bridal salon thinks it may be necessary. I was going to put the largest crinolin (?sp) underneath it which shortens it some and then wear heels. I guess I have a couple questions here...

How much would you expect it to cost to hem the dress maybe 1"?

Would you just buy taller shoes?

Or is this lady just trying to make some $$? I'm thinking not since she does not do the alterations herself, but I have a feeling she probably gets some kickbacks.
