Limited Alterations Policy

Garments must be paid in full before alterations can begin.

All alterations fees are due and payable in full at the first fitting.

Remember that a stress free timeline for alterations is 2-3 months.

All alterations require a scheduled appointment. Please contact us to schedule.

A JRB Style coordinator will travel to your home for the initial fitting within a 50 miles radius from the City of Chicago free of charge.

However, fees are subject to vary based on the work required. Typical alterations for all gowns include side seams, hem, bustles, and bra cups. Additional and/ or custom changes may increase prices. Please ask the coordinator for details regarding specific custom changes.


While it is often possible to size a dress up or down, don't count on being able to take in or let out a dress by more than one or two sizes. Many dresses do not contain enough seam allowance to let out that much – and with fabrics like velvet and satin, the original seam lines will show.
