I got my wedding dress altered here and had a wonderful experience. The women that work here are fun to be around, give helpful advice, and go above and beyond to make sure your dress fits perfectly. They are also very affordable compared to other places in the DC area. Scheduling appointments was a little difficult, but I was never concerned about my dress being done on time.

I went to Chery Lofton and Associates with a crisis. I had had a very bad experience with my wedding dress vendor (review coming soon) and I needed someone to alter and fix some defects in less than 2 weeks. Yes, you read that correctly, less than two weeks. Cheryl and her team quickly put my mind at ease and told me that while it would be difficult---they would get it done. And they did! In a matter of two weeks I was able to have 3 fittings and my dress was perfect! Thank you Cheryl and team!

Thank you yelp and wedding wire for the reviews. I very happily used Cheryl Lofton to alter my gown because my dress vendor was too far away.

I had them take in at the zipper and pull up on the straps so to speak. The dress fit like a glove, literally.

The people working here were always very friendly and I was in and out of fittings at lightening speed.

I had such a great experience getting my lace wedding dress altered. Gail did an absolutely beautiful job! I felt that Gail really wanted my dress to be perfect. Even when I went in for my last fitting, she suggested just one more tiny adjustment, which I so appreciated because even though it looked great already, she just wanted it to be absolutely 100% perfect. I would recommend starting your bridal fitting early in order to give the professionals at Cheryl Lofton's plenty of time to work their magic! Plus, I love the atmosphere in the store and I had fun just going to my bridal fittings.

Gale at Cheryl Lofton did a fantastic job on my wedding dress. My dress was simple, but two sizes too big. By the time Gale was done with it, it fit me like a glove. She was committed to making every last detail look right. The dress turned out just beautifully.

The price was right, the location was convenient, all the staff were friendly. Highly recommend for ladies who don't want to hoof it to the suburbs.

Gail did my alterations for my wedding dress and was the epitome of professionalism. The quality of her alterations, her helpful suggestions for additional dress edits, and just her sweet nature in general were all top notch! She even offered to hold onto my dress after my final dress fitting (a week before my wedding) to steam it and my veil for me to pick up closer to the date of my wedding. My dress fit me perfectly! I couldn't have asked for a better experience.

Cheryl and her staff are excellent. They really know what they are doing and came up with a very creative way to do my bustle. Their prices are very reasonable for DC and for the quality of work. They were flexible with scheduling fittings and a really nice and professional group of people to work with. They were also fun!

Gail at Cheryl Lofton & Associates tailored a beautiful but terribly fitting dress I bought online from the other side of the country. It looked pretty frumpy when I took it to her, but now it fits me like a glove. Gail and Cheryl were both incredibly friendly and delightful to work with. I went in once for the initial fitting, went once more, when we decided she'd take it in a bit more, and then I went back to try it on and take it home today. I'm very satisfied and would definitely recommend them to anyone!

I have 2 weddings this summer and both dresses needed alterations, she was able to get both dresses done in about a week and a half! Very professional and personable, I'm glad I have finally found a great tailor in DC.

If you need to get your wedding dress altered, I recommend without reservation Cherly Loften and Associates. They were phenomenal. I had a lot of alterations made to my dress -- it had to be shortened significantly (not an easy feat given that it had a train and had to be hemmed accordingly), I had them remove the back and create a deep v (they far exceeded my expectations on this one, paying close attention to detail and creating a back that I hadn't dreamed would be as beautiful as it was), added buttons, adjusted the shoulders, and added a built-in bra. They were so attentive to every detail, listened to what I wanted, told me when they thought I was trying to do something impossible (or something that would be ugly), gave me their honest opinions and were incredibly friendly throughout. The dress came out beautifully and fit me like a glove.

Beyond the beautiful job they did on the dress, I can't say enough about how friendly they were. I brought two friends with me every time, and we turned the place into our own home. My friends sat on the floor with their jackets spread out, and Cheryl was nothing but gracious. By the end, I felt as if Cheryl and her staff were my own personal friends, and I actually miss going in for my biweekly fittings.

My husband also got his suit tailored there and they did a great job. The suit fit him fantastically.

She was recommended to me by a custom male suit designer out of NYC who also does work out of DC that is the friend of a friend. He has her do his custom shirts. I basically bought two of the same Tadashi ivory knee length cocktail dresses and had her cut the bottom off of one and sew it on to the other making a seamless full length wedding dress. She also altered some jeans for me that had originally fit me great everywhere but the waist but were a perfect fit after her handiwork. She did an excellent job and was very professional. Mine was a unique project but she does regular bridal alterations also and has also made custom clothing for people. I'm 6ft and plus-sized so clothing fit is not always the best for me off the rack so I plan to take more of my clothing to her for alterations and plan to have her do a custom suit for my 6'5+ FI who has a hard time finding good fits.

Cheryl and her assistant did a terrific job, on a tight deadline. I got my original dress back from a separate seamstress and hated how I looked in it. Absolutely hated it.

So three weeks before my wedding, I bought a new dress from J Crew, which was perfect except for being slightly too long. I frantically called Cheryl to see if they could hem it. They were able to do it quickly and on my timeline, without a rush fee. They were so kind when I got there, too -- they opened the dress and told me it "looked like me."

They did beautiful work, and put in a bustle of a better quality and sophistication than I was expecting. The workmanship was really lovely. I will definitely go back for other alterations.

I highly recommend Cheryl Lofton & Associates. I went to Cheryl to have a bridesmaid dress altered. My experience was so wonderful that I'm looking for an excuse to go back. I took the dress in on a Saturday and needed it before I flew out for the wedding on Friday. Cheryl said no problem. There was no rush fee. It was completed on Tuesday and fit perfectly. I hate strapless dresses but she made it fit like a glove so there was no need to keep pulling it up. Cheryl is very knowledgeable about the proper fit of clothing and I trust her judgment and guidance when discussing how to go about making changes. Not to mention- everyone I interacted with was so kind and relaxed which made the experience even more enjoyable. If you need alterations on a special garment--look no further than Cheryl Lofton & Associates.
