I loved working with Davis Imperial to have my dress altered. I purchased a vintage dress from the 1940s that was a huge ballgown. By the end they completely restructured my dress and it was so beautiful. I flew in several times, from Seattle, to have the dress altered. Each time I was amazed by the work that had been done. I also probably didn't go as many times as they would have liked but the end result was amazing.

I purchased my dress at Bhldn, where they recommended Davis Imperial Cleaners for tailoring. Such a great recommendation!! I had a total of 5 visits between December and June and each time I was treated like a princess. My seamstress and account manager always made me feel beautiful, complimenting me on my choices of dress, jewelry, and shoes. The dress was beautifully pressed for our wedding and was comfortable the entire day. The dress fit like a glove!

Davis Imperial Cleaners took care of the steaming/pressing and transport of my gown. I dropped it off with them 3 weeks ahead of the wedding and they delivered it to the hotel where we got married. I was so impressed with the quality of their work -- the gown was just perfect, not a pleat out of place. And it was delivered in a large bag so as not to smash the dress, and they even included a little kit with gloves, etc. for special handling of the dress. The delivery driver was very friendly. They are a bit pricey but they really did do an amazing job. The splurge was worth it for me.

Davis Imperial is great. I bought a designer sample sale dress that needed cleaning and a lot of alterations. Keturah and her team were so great to work with- so accommodating, friendly and professional. My dress had an outer layer train, and the gals at Davis worked magic so I was able to actually take the outer layer off during my reception. I don't know how they did it but it worked. Their work is incredible; I'd recommend them to anyone!

he only dress I ended up loving was at a sample sale and the dress was a mess. It had a ton of stains and dirt marks and it was about 5 sizes too big, but I had to have it. After a ton of research we took it to Davis Imperial. They were miracle workers! Everyone was so amazing and great to work with. They were also flexible with appointments and rescheduling. I got to work with the same two people the entire time and they were wonderful and helped to address every concern. I often had to go to fittings by myself because my family lived out of town but Keturah was like having a family member there, she was often the first one to point out flaws and always discussed how they could fix them. They were probably my favorite vendor to work with during my wedding.

Got my dress at glamour closet and we're recommended by them. Very trustworthy to make your dress look fabulous on you no matter what they had to alter. Very attentive and they schedule you for 4 to 5 visits to make sure everything fits perfectly. They don't cut anything until the end to make sure your completely satisfied and don't want to make any changes. A little pricey but worth it for your dress. Not anyone knows how.

The place I bought my gown from recommended Davis Imperial Cleaners for my alterations. Again, I did everything quite last minute so I was so excited that they would be able to alter my dress in less than 3 months. They always made it easy for me to make appointments that fit my schedule as my weekends were pretty tight with scheduling as the wedding date got nearer. They were super professional and very friendly. My first alteration was for taking in the sides of the dress as it was too large. When it came time to pay, I was pleasantly surprised as it was right at what I thought it would cost, maybe even a little less than I had anticipated which is always great. The second fitting was for the bustling. I guess my dress was really delicate but the cost of that was more than 1/2 the cost of my gown but at that point, what can I do? The last fitting was for length. My final fitting came and the dress fit but I did notice (and later my mom did, too) that the hem of the gown in front was slightly shorter than the sides. I did notice this at the fitting but since my gown had a "rough" hem meaning that it was like a tulle material and it just gets cut (so if it's too short, you're SOL) there really wasn't a point in bringing it up. I was just happy it fit and got it with time to spare. In the end, the dress looked gorgeous but I did end up paying as much for the alterations as the gown...which I didn't have budgeted so I think I'll have to wait to get the gown "cleaned & preserved" since we came out over our wedding budget. My recommendation is to ask for an estimate before you let anyone "snip" your dress. They were great otherwise and very professional.

What they're doing at Davis Imperial Cleaner is borderline fraud!!!
They are not upfront about what they charge, they demanded to have my credit card in file before they would even deal with me. Once they had my credit they charged $524 without getting any authorization me. They picked up my clothing at my home and did not inform me of their charges. I kept waiting to get a call from them to let me know how much it would cost. The call never came. They never told me upfront what their fees were, they just sneaked and ran this exhorbitant $524 charge on my credit card. Per example: "$16" to clean 1 small silk scarf the kind you wear on your head. I complained to the owner who said he was not obliged to tell me how he will charge upfront. Other Dry Cleaners have only charged about $150 for the same quantity of clothes. Never give your Credit Card # to this people.
