  • Whether you require several fittings or just a simple repair, give the seamstress a clear deadline. To avoid last minute stress it’s a good idea to set that deadline well in advance of when you actually need to wear the garment. This also will help if there is a need for any last minute alterations.
  • Most wedding gown alterations require at least two fittings. Be leery of anyone who takes your measurements and tells you to pick up your gown in three weeks. There is no substitute for trying on the finished product long before the big day and in the presence of the individual making the alterations.
