Lace Dress Alterations

Hello! Not sure who needs to hear this, but if you’re in the process of dress shopping and are a fan of lace, just note alterations can get pricey! No one warned me so I thought I would let others know. When hemming the bottom, due to the intricate lace, the options were to cut it off and have it frayed or remove the lace and move it all up 4 inches. The latter being more expensive than the first option. Just a heads up if you’re also a fan of lace! Lace Dress Alterations 1

    I guess it also depends on the type of lace your dress has as well. My dress was also lace and had to be hemmed a little, but I did not have this issue.

    Did you try going to a different company to get it altered? Maybe that company isn’t experienced in it

    It all depends on the kind of lace, but it can get really expensive!

    That is such a beautiful dress - but definitely a huge hidden cost!! I've heard this can be common based on the hem of the lace, but that sometimes if there's a defined waist they can take the extra length up from the waist instead of off the bottom.

    Sorry you got hit with a big alterations bill!
