This is a two part question around colourizing this old photo
of my mother who recently passed away.

The first part of the question is where do I go to have it actually done? Are there any online services that can do this? Part of the problem is that I don't even know how much would be reasonable to pay for such a service.
The second part is figuring out what the right colours to use would be. This picture has been around for a while but I never thought to ask what the colours of the outfit were. I do know that she made it and it is an italian tarantella dance outfit.
The ultimate goal is to create a framed canvas print to give as a gift to each of my siblings. For what it's worth, the original was scanned at a higher resolution than I have uploaded to imgur. I do understand of course that I can just use it as is, but I'd like to get it colourized at least so I can have the option of using either version.
