I can't begin to tell you what a wonderful experience I had with Cheryl and her wedding dress specialist Martha. I decided two months out from my wedding to wear my mother's wedding dress. Prior to calling Cheryl A Lofton, I had visited two other places and called four. Everywhere else was not going to be able to get the dress finished in time, didn't seem to understand my vision or were ridiculously expensive and out of my price range. When I called Cheryl, I could already tell from the conversation with the receptionist that I was going to feel much more comfortable in their hands because she assured me that nothing that I was asking for was a problem. I was completely sold when I visited the shop.

I so appreciated how much they all shared my excitement and my love for my mother's dress. They really made me feel so special! And beyond that, they did FANTASTIC work. I came in for the normal fittings, but because they were doing a lot of work on the dress, I had to come in two additional times (they did not charge me any extra) and they redid things without any complaint or issue.

My mother is 5 inches shorter than I am and her dress was very...well, 70s. So, Martha worked with me, to cut the dress at the waist and bring the bottom up to keep the embroidery and bead work that runs along the bottom intact. We tightened the sleeves and changed the wrist and button work. We change the bust area and the waist to be more fitted. I was so happy with the final product!

My mom had offered to pay for half of the alterations because she was so pleased that I decided to wear her dress and when she called in, she just loved talking with them too. Everyone at the shop is lovely.

Thank you, Cheryl and Martha, for making me feel so comfortable with the process, for your expertise and skill, for working me in on a tight timeline, for having everything done perfectly, and for sharing in my joy and excitement!

Cheryl and her team did a fantastic job on my wedding dress. Everything I wanted they did with precision and perfection. When I went to pickup my dress it was beautifully preserved and looked like it belonged in a storefront, just lovely!

They were great! From my fitting to my pick up, the staff were attentive, kind, and efficient. Also, every time I was waiting in the lobby/front area, other clients came in with gratitude and lots of smiles, with stories and photos of their weddings. I definitely recommend!

I'm so happy with how my dress turned out! I had the dress taken in, raised the waist, and added a belt. When I had a last-minute work trip that conflicted with my second (and most important) fitting, the staff was able to work with my schedule and squeeze me in before my travel. My seamstress Maria did an amazing job, and Cheryl and her staff were incredible to work with. I will definitely be coming back for alterations for my regular clothes.

Cheryl Lofton & Associates were great to work with - very professional, responsive, and skilled. When I noticed a small issue with my dress after getting home, they got me in the next morning to take care of it free of charge. I would highly recommend them.

I took my wedding 3 piece (corset, skirt and lace overlay) to Cheryl for bridal alterations and I could not be happier. I was working with Martha through the process, she was very sweet and did a great job handling my outfit. The skirt was a silk tulle, beautiful, but pretty hard to handle, But Martha did amazing. She made sure everything fit me like a glove. I live in the neighborhood too, so it was great to get it all done close to home and support local business that been around so long. Very happy with end result!

I found Cheryl Lofton & Assoc through Yelp actually, and right away had a great feeling about it. I love that it's a small and local business. Moreover, I loved the photos posted showing the beautiful work done.

Going for my first fitting, my positive feelings were affirmed. My dress I bought "used" but never worn at an amazing price. It had a beautiful lace train, but I wanted zero train, not even just a nice bustle. The idea of cutting the lace though broke my heart. The woman helping me and I came up with a plan of essentially using small (and removable) stitches as pickups. (Wish I could post a photo.) It was executed perfectly and looked like it was always meant to be that way. Gorgeous!

My fiancé purchased a handmade tux from India. It was actually amazingly awesome, but it arrived only two weeks before the big event (heart attack!) and the fit of the pants can only be described as hilarious. Again we went to Cheryl and associates. The alterations were perfectly fitted and completed with amazingly quick turnaround.

Thanks, Cheryl Lofton & Associates!
