I would recommend Dora Baker to anyone for any dress. Dora did a phenomenal job on my dress (entirely lace) and was my favorite vendor to work with. She was sweet, upfront and honest- which was a refreshing change for me. Dora ended up not only working on my wedding dress but also fixed a bad alteration job on my mother's dress and did two very last-minute alterations for my out of town bridemaids (less than 24hr turn around). Her prices were more than reasonable and her knowledge and expertise truly make her a master at her trade. I cant thank her enough for the time and effort she put into making my dress beautiful and for her genuine desire to see that both my mother and I felt happy and stress free when it came to our dresses.

So glad I found Dora to do the alterations on my daughter's wedding dress! She was worth every minute of the drive out to Lawrenceville for her expertise, keen eye, and flexibility. She was very opinionated on a few matters, but she was absolutely right, and we were smart to follow her advice. My daughter's dress didn't need major alterations, but where I was most impressed was the gorgeous bustle Dora fashioned. (Who knew bustles aren't all the same?!?!??) I didn't compare prices on alterations, but thought her prices were very fair. I even had her alter my MOB dress. She was a major part of our wedding planning. She took my daughter's beautiful, off the rack dress, and gave it a delightful custom fit.

I would highly, HIGHLY recommend Dora Baker for all of your alterations. She has amazing eye and unmatched skill, and her prices are so low I had to ask her to repeat herself and make sure I hadn't misheard! She also does her best to accommodate, but I would suggest going to her with at least 4 months to spare because she's really busy. Also, although she was extremely nice and polite to me, she came across somewhat abrasive to the others who attended fittings with me. This, however, may have been because she perceived the situation incorrectly and thought I needed someone to tend to my wishes regarding the dress, which in turn expressed itself as her being dismissive to my guests and not allowing them to talk very much. She definitely gets major points for being completely focused on the bride though! I loved every minute I had with her!! She took my mother's heirloom dress from the 1980s and turned it into exactly what I'd dreamed it up to be.

Dora was a dream come true. I wore my Mother's dress to my wedding and my Grandmother's dress to my rehearsal dinner and none of this could have happened without Dora. She transformed both dresses in such a stylish, delicate, careful, and professional way I was completely blown away. Both dresses were beyond my wildest dreams! She has an eye for alterations and is so kind about giving them the time she needs to and knowing what will work/look best. She was so flexible with meeting times, worked diligently and speedily when need be, but always with the most care. She also is very careful about only charging what is absolutely necessary. She is very considerate to a bride's budget! I give Dora the highest recommendation and will be going back to her with any alterations I need in the future!

I feel so lucky to have found Dora for my dress alterations! She is amazing at what she does, and she took my dress from a size 6 to a size 2 and it looked AWESOME when she finished. She worked on it until she was 100% satisfied, and her experience and skills allowed her to notice important aspects that I would have overlooked. I cannot recommend her highly enough... she turned the alterations experience from a task to an enjoyable experience. And, she's honest, which is very important for this process! Professional, sweet, and very reasonably priced. Can't go wrong with her!

A big thank you to Dora for her lovely work on my dress! Not only did she do very professional work, she is so, so kind. She spent a good amount of time on the phone with me answering questions before I had even agreed to use her services. She also helped me finalize my wedding day look. My mother and I both adored her, we highly recommend her!

I am a size 8 and not very tiny. I have a "busty" figure but you made me feel and look so small, with an elegant silhouette.

I bought my dress giving my measurements, the shop suggested I was closet to a size 14... My dress got here and looked just like a size 14 on my size 8 frame. Dora made my dress fit me like a glove and I was so happy, the way it looked on my body! She did an amazing job in such a small amount of time!!!! She took the time to make sure every inch of it fit me like it was suppose to! Dora was a life saver and an awesome seamstress! Thank you for all that you have done and continue to do! I would suggest you over anyone, for a bridal dress fitting and alteration!

HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!!! Dora was fabulous! I absolutely loved my experience with Dora Baker's Bridal Alterations! I had 2 months to to plan my wedding and get my dress altered, Dora was flexible with my schedule and finished my dress quickly. To have the perfect fit with comfort you need your dress fitted to you, and Dora made it look better than new and fit my body like a glove!! I got so many compliments on the dress and the bustle. My pictures came out wonderful and not a single negative distraction on my day due to my wardrobe. She had me go to several appointments to make sure everything was perfect. To customize your dress to you and a great price, I recommend Dora. I am still using her for my bridesmaid dresses.

Dora is an absolute angel. After I bought my dress, I was feeling a tinge of buyer's remorse - it was uncomfortable, itchy and a little unflattering. However, in just a few short sessions, Dora transformed the gown into my dream dress. It fit like a glove and felt amazing. Not to mention, Dora was extremely accommodating and so much fun - she turned what could have been a stressful experience into fun-filled memories for me, my mom and my sister. I recommend her to everyone!

Dora is amazing!! She knows what she is doing and works around the clock to make your dress perfect. The first thing I did when we got engaged was my dress. This happened over a year before we got married so by the the wedding came the dress I ordered was way too big and was in need of several alterations. She was able to take my dress in several times because I kept losing weight throughout the alteration process. The dress never lost its original look when she took the dress in. She could tell that I was uncomfortable with the top of the dress. It just felt like it was sitting to high but I did not really say anything to her.. She could tell something was wrong and asked if I would like it to be a sweetheart top instead of a straight across top.. She used some pins to show me and I loved it!! She could tell that was uncomfortable and was able to fix the problem.. When she alter the top it looked amazing and made my wedding dress the perfect dress. Then it came time for the busel I am not usually a fan of the way the bussels look, but she designed this beautiful bussel that looked like it added more pick-ups to the dress. It was so beautiful!! She did all of this for a great value too!! I was expecting a pretty expensive bill and it was very resonable! She is amazing and I recomade her to everyone. She has altered all my bridesmaid dresses too for other weddings!!

Mrs. Baker was recommended to me by a friend who had her own bridal alterations done by David's Bridal, paid way too much money, and said that she wished she had gone with this woman who her friend used. Mrs. Baker works out of a very professional studio in her home, and low overhead for her means less money she has to charge you! From beginning to end it was evident that she has been doing this a long time. She did quite a lot of work to my gown, including sewing in bra cups and a supportive shelf and adding a beautiful, NOT frumpy lace modesty piece along the sweetheart neckline. The fittings were quick, her work was excellent, and you will not find more reasonable pricing anywhere. My mother-in-law who came with me to the fittings and myself are both very pleased!

Mrs. Baker is amazing. I called her on the Wednesday before the new year. I had the good luck of finding a wedding dress that fit perfectly but wanted a sweetheart neckline (instead of what I had) and needed a bustle added to the dress. Here's the catch, I don't live in Atlanta and I needed the dress before boarding my flight to the island where I live (an island with 0 seamstresses) before January 2nd. Mrs. Baker set an appointment with me for the next day, and promised the dress of New Year's Eve. She delivered. The neckline was just as she promised and the bustle was one of the most beautiful I've ever seen. Her bustle technique is unique and flawless.

Due to my time constraints, I was sure I would have to accept a neckline that I was not happy with. But I got so lucky. Mrs. Baker was gracious, affordable (even with the rush request), great to chat with, and she does amazing work. I highly recommend her for alterations.

Mrs. Baker was awesome. A week before my wedding I went to pick up my dress and rehearsal dinner dress, and the seamstress at the boutique I went to made my dress too tight. The seamstress at this boutique would not fix the dresses because she "did not have time due to Prom season". Then I heard of Dora and went to her for emergency help. She was more than willing to help and got my dresses done in two days. I HIGHLY recommend her. She knows what she is doing!

I can't say enough good things about Dora. She was so sweet but gave very professionally and honest suggestions. My dress was very form fitting and would not hide a single flaw and she made it fit me like a glove while looking completely flawless. Her pricing was very reasonable and she was able to schedule me in during times that fit for me best. I lived far away, but she was worth the drive. I highly recommend her.

Dora Baker did a great job on my wedding dress! I received so many compliments on how well my dress fit. My dress had a lace hem and she was able to take it up in length and it looked perfect. I do not live in Atlanta, but Dora was very flexible and even met with me at 8 PM on a Friday evening because that was the only time I could meet. Dora was very thorough and I had multiple fittings to make sure the dress fit me perfectly. I felt that Dora did a great job on my dress and the price was affordable.

Mrs. Dora is amazing!!! She is like my fairy godmother!!! She is amazing!! I am very short, she made me look like I had an amazing wasteline!! She took my dress, made me look perfect!! She cut the length, took in the front of the breast area so it laid tight against my chest, she put in a corset in the back, she adjusted the detatchable train as well. She cleaned it and steamed it herself. She also did my mother's, my aunt's, and my now- step daughter's dress alterations as well!! I will recommend her to anyone!! She is wonderful!!! I am a very happy customer!!! And spending time with her was fun as well!!! You would think she is part of our family now! It sure feels that way!

I am SO GLAD I found Dora before my wedding. She literally saved the day. After a terrible experience with alterations done at the bridal store where I bought my dress, it was too short, ill-fitting and looked a mess. I went to Dora with only days left before my wedding and she didn't hesitate to help. Within only 1 fitting and 48 hours, Dora had worked magic on my dress to make it look and fit like a dream! She even cared enough to find a way to be able to add more length back to the dress so that it was long enough to wear with the shoes I wanted. She truly cares about how a bride should feel on her big day and pays attention to every detail. She is extremely reasonable with her costs too. Thanks to Dora, I felt amazing in my dress and got a ton of compliments. I only wish I went to her first!

I would give Dora 10 stars if I could. My dress was several sizes too big and I was rushed into purchasing. I brought a picture of the dress I *wished* it looked like in in a few months, Dora had disassembled my original dress and made my dream dress! It was perfect, stunning, everything I had dreamt of!

Dora was such a doll to work with. She even gave marriage advice while she was pinning. :) She was truly a Godsend and I am so grateful that I came across her information while looking for someone to do my alterations.

Dora did a great job on my bridal gown. But she tailored the bridesmaids dress too short, thus ruining it, and altered the MOB dress incorrectly as well. She was late with both the bridesmaid and MOB dress, dropping them off the morning before the wedding, when it was too late to fix them. Maybe she's just better with bridal dresses. She was cheap, so maybe you get what you pay for.

Dora is absolutely incredible. Not only is she the best in terms of her workmanship and value, she is sweet and cares about her brides. She did not stop until she got my dress to fit perfectly. She was half the price of what the salon quoted me, and she did additional work to make the dress unique like I wanted it. She even made my veil and garter with lace from my dress. I was constantly blown away by her abilities and how much she cared about making everything perfect. She is amazing.

Mrs. Dora is the best. Yes I traveled from Kennesaw to Lawrenceville to have my dress altered and I would do it again. Her prices were very reasonable, her workmanship excellent, and customer service top notch. She made all the alterations I needed quickly and when another alteration resulted from a previous one, there was no additional charge or hassle to have it fixed. Another unique thing, was that we had been talking about my workout routine to try and get ready for my big day and she recommended different exercises to fix the areas I was still wanting to work on. Worth the drive and money, everyone is still talking about how gorgeous my dress was and how great it looked. Thanks so much Dora, Lisa Branson (Blumke)

Mrs. Dora Baker was the best lady for my wedding dress alterations. She did a fabulous job! She made us very knowledgeable about many facets about the dress. Mrs. Dora made me look like a million dollars. Not only did she do my wedding dress alterations, but she worked her magic on one of my bridesmaid's dresses (that was destroyed a week before the wedding due to a fire at the cleaners) and helped her look amazing, too! Mrs. Dora will always go down as one of the best in the business of alterations!

Be aware that Dora works out of her own home, something that I wasn't expecting when I drove up the first time! Her work is flawless and fantastic, even on my complicated lace neckline on my gown. The whole neckline had to be lifted and rejoined with the lace bodice, and you couldn't tell at all. She replaced by button loops and zipper for the better and the dress fit flawlessly on my big day. My only complaint is that twice she cancelled on me via text message (not professional to me) and followed up with a call at 7:30 in the morning. She is very busy and occasionally overbooks herself, which is a bit frustrating. I can't say enough good things about her alterations, though. Her value is outstanding!

Mrs. Baker was a dream to work with. I was eloping and found her 2 weeks before I was to be married. She was very patient and flexible with my fitting schedule. She was very meticulous and detail oriented to ensure I looked beautiful and the dress fit perfectly on my special day. She even recommended the perfect undergarments. She was worth every penny and helped to make it a stress less experience! I would definitely recommend Dora Baker to anyone who needs alterations. She has a ton of experience and is qualified for the simplest or most complex alterations.

Dora Baker is a gem! She knew exactly what needed to be done with my dress. The bridal shop where I purchased my dress went out of business; therefore they ended up shipping my dress to me. It came very late- I had 5 weeks to get my dress altered. That was no problem for Dora. I met with her every week. Most salons would have just done one big alteration, not Dora. She worked in sections. My dress fit me perfectly! Dora understands how everything should look and fit.

I cannot thank Dora enough for taking such good care of me!

Dora was wonderful! She made my wedding dress fit perfectly and was so kind and nice. The fittings were done at her home and it was so nice to have that extra time to really look at yourself and see what you needed done rather then be rushed in and out. She was very reasonably priced and the steaming job was fantastic! I would highly recommend her!
