Diana was fantastic to work with. My dress looks fantastic, she listened to what I needed altered (hemmed, bustle, and have the shoulders taken up a little) and was fun to work with. Highly recommend! Only downside is that she is cash only. Not a big deal, but I did have to go find an ATM because I didn't know in advance.

Diana made my wedding dress based on something I had seen at a very expensive boutique. I was so nervous, but she got it just right. The dress looked so beautiful, and everyone said it was one of the prettiest dresses they had seen. The material flowed perfectly, and though it took a few visits, the dress ended up looking nicer than the more expensive one.

Miracle worker! Diana is an absolute miracle worker! I purchased my gown from Kleinfelds and after a very difficult time with Kleinfelds trying to make an appointment to have it altered in NY I decided to have them send it to me and they recommended her.

My gown was 9 inches to big and falling off of my body. It was an all lace, trumpet gown with 3/4 length sleeves and a sheer lace back. She literally had to operate on my gown taking the ENTIRE gown apart and put it back together. My first fitting was so sad and not the bridal experience I wanted but when we asked if she could fix the mess that was my gown, with confidence she said "yes!".
After only one fitting it was perfect and stunning and fit like a glove! She fit my appointments in as I live in NC when I was in town and was extremely polite and had a great demeanor.

Diana saved my gown and my wedding and I can't even begin to say enough! I would send any gown or garment to her to fix! She also sings and cooks :) And all around talented lady who is a dress miracle worker!

A true expert at what she does! I had bought a dress out of town and was so nervous about taking it just anywhere to get altered. Considering she makes dresses I felt like she would be safe. My dress was a trumpet style with corset through the middle and needed certain parts let out a little and others taken in since I was between 3 sizes. She was a perfectionist about tailoring it correctly and new exactly what it needed (a relief to me being type A personality). It turned out perfect and my bustle stayed attached all day. Diana was very flexible with scheduling appointments. I met her in her basement of her home in Annandale, which was closer to me than her DC shop. Very sweet lady, highly recommended!

I can't say enough nice things about Diana. I made the mistake of ordering my dress a year before the wedding (it was the only chance I had to shop with my mom) and, despite not planning on it, ended up losing a substantial amount of weight. I brought my sad, huge dress to Diana, and she took it in about 4 sizes. It looked better at the end than it did when I fit the size that I ordered!

Diana gave me a quote on my first visit to her and while it was high, I knew it was going to be a big job. She also met with me several times to get the sizing right. I believe I saw her a total of 5 or 6 times, including once two days before my wedding after I got the dress steamed and some of the ruching had come undone. I emailed her in a panic at 8 pm, and she got back to me 20 minutes later saying to come to her place in Virginia at 10 the next morning. She fixed it right then and there while it was on my body and it was perfect. Despite the ridiculous number of fittings I needed, the quoted price was the final cost.

She is so sweet and patient and very encouraging. She is definitely worth the money! If you go to her shop in Georgetown, stop by the restaurant downstairs (Simply Banh Mi), which is run by her children, and have some delicious, healthful food!

Oh, where to begin. I found a gorgeous Oscar de la Renta gown at a sample room in NYC and fell head over heels for the lace and floral appliques. However, the top of the gown was much more covered than I wanted it to be (we were having a beach wedding) so I knew I needed to find the best alterations woman in town to help me open it up, but keep the beauty and intention of Oscar's original design. After scouring the web, I met with Diana.

Diana knew it would be a big job due to the delicate material and the reconstruction that was needed. So yes, it was pricey as far as alterations are considered, but Diana more than earned the cost I paid. She had me in for probably 5-6 fittings, and worked tirelessly until she had achieved my vision and the fit I had wanted. It took a lot of trust, but believe me, the end result was amazing and was the most commented-on part of the wedding. In the end, it truly was an Oscar de la Diana.

I noticed some of the reviews comment on Diana's workspace, and while her Georgetown store is very small and congested at times, this is because she is so busy and she takes her work back and forth to her other shop which is in her home in Annandale, VA. For only 15-20 more minutes in the car, her Annandale location is much more comfortable, and I ended up doing the majority of my fittings there. You don't hire Diana for a bridal salon type atmosphere, you hire her because she's the best in the business. I never could have trusted a standard alterations person at a bridal salon to do the work she did.

I gave Diana a picture of a designer silk chiffon strapless dress and asked her to re-create the dress, with sleeves. The end result was gorgeous, perfectly fit, comfortable and looked great all day (which included quite a bit of moving around in the snow). I cannot emphasize enough how nice it was that my dress was made to fit me, from start to finish. It fit like it belonged on me, and I was SO comfortable, I was not ready to take it off after about 12 hours wearing it.

Dianas was great. She took my sample sale dress that was a off the shoulder dress and changed it to the vneck that I wanted. It was amazing and I know alot of work, but she did it perfectly! She suggested a great side bustle and was really nice to work with. Klienfields in NY is how I was matched up with her and I was so happy I was. If you need anything really difficult done on your wedding gown (like changing the whole neckline) you want to go with someone great and Diana is your perfect person!

Diana altered the wedding dress that I had ordered online. She did a great job with making sure that I was very happy with the final result and the dress fit perfectly on my wedding day. Her service fees are not cheap, but she basically had to re-make the entire bodice of my wedding dress since it was too large so I thought I got a fair price.

I worked with Diana to make a cocktail length dress for my March wedding ceremony and dinner reception. Diana is truly a master of her craft. She really knows how to fit the proportions of a dress to your individual body and I just loved the end result. There were a couple quality issues on the day of in that a few seams/stitches came loose, but nothing that some double-sided tape couldn't fix. If you're thinking about a custom dress, or just some alterations, you should meet with her. She's great. One thing, her studio is a bit messy, but don't let that scare you. :-)
