After: Embellished Top
To add drama to the neckline of a dressy blouse, ask for a piece of your (inexpensive!) chunky jewelry to be stitched onto it. Choose a style with links or loops so the tailor can stitch between them. This can be a lot of handwork, so the price will vary, depending on the jewelry. Dry-clean only.
Cost: $45 (or less) to $80.
