How much does it cost to tailor a dress?

I recently bought a dress thats size M & I’m a size S and I want to get it tailored to my size.

Is it expensive? Whats the price range for tailoring? Or would I be better off returnng the dress and getting something else?

  1. Chances are you wont spend more then $60 bucks.

    Go to a couple places and see what the price is.

    good luck

  2. about like $55 because the tailor probably has to take in from almost everywhere. maybe you should just buy a new dress.

    BTW, just incase your looking for dresses:

    ruelala.com has really nice boutiques that have really cute, name brand dresses.

    its actually having a huge sale right now and dresses are really cheap.
    you need to be a member to buy something though. you become a member by invite. im a member, so if you want, i can invite you – i just have to give them your email and you’ll get a message in your inbox. oh and plus, you get $10 with your first purchase. the dresses are SO cute, no joke.

  3. Hi,

    That is a difficult question to answer without actually looking at the dress but as a tailor myself, I can provide you with a rough estimate. At Park Avenue Tailors, we charge anywhere from $25 to $35 per seam on a dress. Most likely, 2 seams will need to be altered to bring it down from a Medium to a Small.

    The estimate on this dress alteration would likely be $50 to $70. Good luck.

    Sincerely,

  4. Yes I agree with Park Avenue, it is difficult to give an accurate estimate until we see the dress on you. Then once we know what needs to be done and where we can look at the dresses construction and tell you what the cost will be.

  5. Superb post. I was checking continuously this blog and I’m impressed! Extremely beneficial info specially the last portion :) I care for such data a good deal. I was looking for this particular data for a quite long time. Thank you and greatest of luck.

  6. It looks as if the corporate desires to misinform your current customer about their products as well as not offer genuine help.Great idea,beats by dre lebron james as well as props for putting in all your effort, but cookie cutter letters lose their very own impact as soon as they are figured out.
