Having a jacket partially relined - any idea of cost?

I have a jacket that has a lined hood and also lined cuffs that are visible.

I'd quite like the lining to be removed and replaced with a prettier fabric.

Does anyone know the likely cost of having this done by a local seamstress - excluding the cost of the fabric?

I would pop along and ask.

I tried to get Dh's leather jacket relined and 2 alteration shops wouldn't touch it. The 3rd charged £25. This was just for the for the bottom of the jacket - the original lining was in different materials in different areas so that's all that needed to be replaced.
I thought the bill was going to be £100's after the fuss the 1st shop made (jacket cost £350 c 5 years ago) so was delighted !

Dry cleaners sometimes do alterations too.
