Three. I am altering my moms wedding dress (it’s my something old 27yrs) so the first appointment was to discuss what I wanted, the second was to get the correct length of my added detachable train, the final will be within the week of the wedding.
I had one appointment to try on the dress when it arrived, another appointment 2 months before the wedding to actually get it fitted, a third appointment to try it on, then I had to go back 3 times the week of the fitting because I had lost so much weight that I needed it altered another time. I was so stressed because the seamstress was working on it the day before my wedding. Luckily, it came out perfect! So, I’d say a total of 6 times 🤦🏻♀️
