Riddle me this

How do you turn a $12.99 cotton sundress from Target into a $52.99 cotton sundress from Target?

Enlist a fairy godmother singing Bippity-Bobbity-Boo?  No.  
Start your own personal sweatshop of forest creatures and mice?  No.
Take it to a tailor in London for a tiny repair?  Yes.

Lesson?  GET A QUOTE FIRST.

Did you not laugh at them and tell them to keep the dress - it would be cheaper for you to buy another one?

The question is...does it still look like a $12.99 dress from Target?

Inexpensive alterations are one perk of living in nowhereville south GA. The downside, though, is I'm not sure I would trust my alteration lady with something much more expensive than $12.99

How frustrating. I hate when you save a great deal on an item, only to end up paying much more for it in the end.... :(

Anyway, have a great weekend. :)
