This was a down coat that would require a separating zipper so it would have taken longer. Plus it is 36" long not the standard 18-20" zipper for a dress. At the least it probably took 30 minutes. She had to carefully remove the other zipper then pin this one in etc. I too do this kind of alterations and I do not like to charge. A gift certificate to Jo Ann's or Hobby Lobby would be a great gift to give her. Then she can select what she needs or wants.
