Clemencia did an absolutely amazing job altering my dress. I had purchased a sample dress and needed to have it let out slightly and hemmed. The dress was all lace which didn't make this an easy task!

But she was able to let out the dress and make it look as if there hadn't been any changes at all.

She is very good at what she does and made me feel completely at ease.

Clemencia was absolutely amazing and she is so extremely talented at her skill. I had a very fitted, lace fit-and flare gown that was quite large on me in several areas. I had spent so much money on the gown, and was worried that it didn't look how it wanted it to because it appeared to be 'hanging off me' in certain areas. After the initial fitting with Clemencia, she took in the waist without compromising the lace pattern, altered the shoulder straps and turned it into such a structured, fitted gown that fit my body like a glove :) She also created such a beautiful bustle on my dress...unlike one I have ever seen. Clemencia is warm and welcoming and will make you feel confident and stunning in your gown. She is truly a miracle-worker :)

Clemencia is one of those special people who really cares about what she does. She is patient and skilled, and a perfectionist. Exactly what I needed. She really listened to me. She is hands down the best person I could have found to do the alterations for my dress. There were a few flaws to my dress (even though it was a very expensive designer dress), and Clemencia, being the miracle worker that she is, was able to transform my dress into the most amazingly perfect fitting dress I could've asked for. My dress also had a difficult train to bustle, but she created a beautiful bustle for me. Even though we were tight on time, she made it happen. Everyone at my wedding said I looked stunning. Thank you Clemencia!

From reading her bio, you can immediately tell that Clemencia is talented and experienced. I was desperately seeking alterations to my wedding dress, as well as a boucle installation since the in-house seamstress at the salon from where I purchased my dress was not highly recommended. I found Clemencia via a search in Washingtonian magazine, where her handy-work is frequently featured. I also gave her an extra time challenge, as she only had three weeks notice to work on my dress (I was cutting it way too close). Clemencia is very pleasant and professional. And the millions of layers of tulle on my dress were no challenge for her! The length was perfect, I did not trip or stumble the whole day. And the boucled dress added extra wow factor! I consider myself lucky and privileged to have had such a prestigious and acclaimed seamstress make my dress even more unique and just for me. Thank you Clemencia!

I found out about Clemencia through my hair stylist for my wedding. They apparently had worked on numerous weddings together, as well as magazine shoots. Clemencia was amazing to work with and did a spectacular job on my wedding gown. She was affordable and most important, a master of her craft. She even helped me on very short notice when I stopped by the day before my rehearsal dinner with a dress I needed completely reconstructed for the following day. She did it in a crunch, and everything turned out beautifully and just as I envisioned. I recommend her services to everyone! She's fantastic.

My husband thought I was crazy when I told him I had hired a dresser for our daughter's wedding. Not only were the fittings with our gowns so expert, she even fixed dresses that had been ruined by other dressmakers for us! She is a wealth of knowlege, from the type undergarments to wear with the gowns, type of footies to wear in your shoes, and has a variety of these items stocked in her home for purchase on the spot. At our last fitting, when she was about to attach the blusher to my daughter's veil, we discovered the shop had forgotten the blusher. Clemncia had one for us on the spot.

The day of the wedding, my son-in-law realized he lost his bow tie to his tuxedo. I called Clemncia who had one of the same brand at home and brought it, tied it on him, helped the groomsmen with their boutonnieres, helped the grandfather of the bride into his tuxedo properly. She brought her steamer, steamed not only the bride's gown, but my gown, the mother of the groom's gown, the bridesmaid's gowns, the flower girl's dress and the grandmother of the bride's dress. She proceeded to help us all into our dresses. One of the bridesmaids had lost weight, another had gained some. They switched dresses, but they had a significant height difference. Clemencia hemmed one gown, and somehow lengthened the other on the spot. The dresses had decorative broaches. The maid of honor's broke, and Clemncia attached it to her dress. My mother's wrist corsage was to big, Clemencia took it in.

She dressed Amelia, the bride, with great care, came down to where she was to appear, arranged her train and veil, and when my husband started to escort our daughter, her veil caught on something. Clemencia was there to unobtrusively free the veil, and not one beat was missed.

After the ceremony and before entering the reception, Clemencia bustled Amelia's gown while she went to the bathroom & redressed her before leaving.

My husband said it was the best money spent on the day!!

Clemencia is truly a miracle worker! I wish every bride was as lucky as I, and could experience not only the work that Clemencia does but her calming and kind nature. She made me feel as beautiful and special as I have ever felt. The time and work that she put into making my wedding dress fit perfectly was absolutely AMAZING. If I could rate her a 5.0 + I would. There are four girls in my family and I am the second to go to Clemencia and would not send my sisters anywhere else. I want to stay in touch with her because of who is is as a person and how I felt in her presence! Thank you, Clemencia! -Colleen (Morris) Freestate

Clemencia is truly an amazing presence to have on your wedding day! Not only does she come with every clothing fix she has needed in her career, but she is a calming, warm influence. One of my bridesmaids bought her dress too small for her bust and was so self-conscious. Clemencia took the teeny tiny bit of fabric there was to let out and helped her feel gorgeous. She was one of the last people to see me before I walked down the aisle and she made me feel like the beautiful woman every girl wants to feel like before walking down the aisle. I highly recommend her and think her price is a steal for the hours of work she will do on your behalf.

Clemencia was a special service we decided at the last minute to hire. She did the alterations for my daughter's wedding dress and my dress. She mentioned that she had a service on the day of the wedding. She would come to the hotel and assist the Bride and the wedding party with any needed repairs, pressing of dresses, tuxedos, etc. Then come to the wedding site and be available to assist in any way. Well, thank goodness she was with us. One Bridesmaid's dress needed major alterations, and one Groomsman needed his tuxedo pants hemmed, in addition to the Bride's dress needing to be steamed. So, I would suggest that Clemencia's service be considered on the wedding day! We would highly recommend her for alterations and wedding day services.

Clemencia was absolutely AMAZING to work with! After Priscilla's shut down, I was left to find my own seamstress for alternations. I found Clemencia's name and I couldn't have been happier. My dress looks gorgeous and she was so sweet! She is very flexible, responsive, and hard working. She really does all she can to make sure a bride's dress and experience are PERFECT! I HIGHLY recommend her for any of your wedding day needs :)

We could not have been luckier when we were looking for someone to make a complicated alteration to my daughter's wedding dress and a close friend told us about Clemencia. Upon meeting her for the first time, we knew we had a gem! She exuded warmth and began to go to work immediately. The dress needed to have gussets put in both sides of the bustier which was made of a sequined fabric. You would never have known there had been any alteration. She also fashioned a beautiful bustle fastened with precious covered buttons. Not only were they nearly invisible, but also (with her training!) the bustle was easy to manipulate.

Clemencia also made her veil which included a blusher. It was "simply elegant", and the design complimented her dress beautifully.

We never worried that she would not be ready for a fitting when scheduled which was important to us since my daughter was living in Chicago and had to fly in for her fittings. Everything was done on time and to perfection. I look forward to working with her when my other daughter gets married. She is a true professional.

Clemencia is fantastic! She is truly a gifted seamstress and does amazing work! She was referred to me by another bride who had her mother's wedding dress totally reworked so she could wear it for her own wedding day. It looked AMAZING!
For my wedding, Clemencia was excellent as well. My dress was very form-fitted and Clemencia did such a wonderful job that it looked as if the designer of the dress actually made it personally for me!!
I also had Clemencia come the day of my wedding (optional - for a fee). It was well worth it. She helped steam and iron my dress and veil, and she helped the bridemaids, the mother of the bride and the father of the bride with their outfits (steaming, ironing, last minute tailoring, etc.). The best was when she stitched up a gaping whole in my dad's tux. He had caught it on something while we were taking photographs, and she was able to stitch it up right there beside the church before we walked down the aisle. She was a lifesaver!
Clemencia is truly amazing! I've already recommended her to a number of friends.

I chose to wear my mother's wedding dress, but the 1981 lace-and-chiffon piece needed some "updating" before my Big Day. We came to Clemencia through a recommendations by Rizik's in downtown DC and it has been a joy to work with her!

Clemencia is warm, honest, and talented beyond the sewing machine. She has worked with hundreds of brides and her professional experience shows. She listens patiently, and doesn't impose her own ideas but really focuses on what exactly the bride is trying to articulate. I brought her my mother's dress and two pictures -- one of a dress's front, another of a different dress's back -- and Clemencia was able to fuse those three design elements together to create not only the dress of my dreams but also a dress that respects the integrity of the original design. She also reworked the way the bustle pins up, and the result can only be described as a work of art.

Clemencia also created a veil that perfectly compliments the dress, and was able to remove some 29-year-old stains from when it was my mother's. She also was able to recommend undergarments that gave my figure the best shape for the dress's designs. I not only feel beautiful and well-figured, but also comfortable and reception-ready.

My mother and I enjoyed working with her so much that we've asked her to come help with the wedding in March -- a unique service of hers we are excited to take advantage of. Nobody knows the dress more intimately than Clemencia, so it only makes sense she will be present to steam the dress in the bridal suite prior to the ceremony, stay through pictures to ensure the dress falls as it was designed to fall, and through dinner and dancing when the dress must be bustled, etc.

I couldn't feel more comfortable heading into my wedding day and cannot recommend Clemencia's services more.

She also reworked the way the bustle pins up, and the result can only be described as a work of art.

Clemencia also created a veil that perfectly compliments the dress, and was able to remove some 29-year-old stains from when it was my mother's. She also was able to recommend undergarments that gave my figure the best shape for the dress's designs. I not only feel beautiful and well-figured, but also comfortable and reception-ready.

My mother and I enjoyed working with her so much that we've asked her to come help with the wedding in March -- a unique service of hers we are excited to take advantage of. Nobody knows the dress more intimately than Clemencia, so it only makes sense she will be present to steam the dress in the bridal suite prior to the ceremony, stay through pictures to ensure the dress falls as it was designed to fall, and through dinner and dancing when the dress must be bustled, etc.

I couldn't feel more comfortable heading into my wedding day and cannot recommend Clemencia's services more. Read less

Clemencia completely transformed my wedding gown from a strapless bustier into a dress with a three quarter length sleeve and fully covered. She also hand-applied beadwork and trimming. The dress turned out beautifully. The work was incredibly professional and flawless. She worked with me on several occassions to get the fit perfect. She's very flexible and can come to you or you can come to her home depending on your schedule and your ability to pay a relatively small fee for her to come to you.
Overall, I could not have been happier. I would definitely use her again, but of course, not for another wedding dress! :)
