Dress Alterations

This week we needed to confront the costs involved in altering the Lazaro dress bought last year. Since the skirt has 17 layers we knew that it would be an expensive task. We made appt. with 2 tailors in Milwaukee and decided on Anna's Custom Tailoring in the Knickerbocker Hotel. The hem will cost $145.00 and attaching buttons will be an additional $2.00 each (13 buttons). Callie also decided that she wanted to add some personal design features to the gown as well. Anna asked that we bring the dress back in March 2008 so she didn't have to store it. She also wanted to wait until the final moments before the wedding to make any changes so that the dress fit perfectly.
