Tang's Alterations did a wonderful job on my wedding dress and veil. They were referred to me by a friend, and I am so glad I went with them! I had my first fitting when I dropped off my dress, and she talked me through the alterations I needed, and her best recommendations for bustling. I had my second fitting two weeks later where she taught two of my bridesmaids how to bustle my dress. Two weeks before my wedding David's Bridal dropped the ball on getting my veil steamed, so I called Tang's in a minor panic and Kenny told me to drop it off and there was no additional charge! I picked up my dress and veil the day before my wedding and both were absolutely perfect, I couldn't be happier with how it turned out.

I got a second hand wedding dress that I loved the material, but needed to work on updating the style. She was able to completely transform the dress with her experience and style tips. She was patient with me as it took several fittings to change it one part at a time. You can't get better quality or better value for a tailor, and I was glad I trusted her with my wedding dress revamp. You can feel comfortable knowing she knows what she's talking about!

Xiao-Yin and Kenny are the best! My daughter bought her dress in Sioux City Iowa right after her engagement last year. Unfortunately, she lost weight in the next 8 months, and the dress was a bit large when she tried it on in Feb. when she was home for a bridal shower. Xiao-Yin altered the dress, sewed in a bra so my daughter didn't need the slip that David's Bridal sold us and made the dress look and feel amazing. We learned how to get her into her dress properly so she wasn't tugging on it all day, It was expertly bustled and Kenny got up at 2am to get the dress steamed and looking amazing. The prices were very reasonable for the amount of work done, the workmanship was incredible and value was outstanding. Tangs is incredibly professional and I can't say enough good things about them. My husband has since gotten a few shirts tailored there, and they came out great as well. I'd highly recommend Tangs for any alterations, but especially, for wedding dresses. Xiao-Yin is a fashion expert and wedding dresses are her specialty. She made us feel great about the whole process.

Tang's Alterations did a fantastic job on my dress. From my first phone call to the shop through my fittings through to the day I picked up my dress, everyone was really nice and very helpful. I worked with Xiao-Yin, and she was awesome. She talked through the alterations I needed, and her best recommendations, as well as gave me a great piece of advice about cleaning my dress (which was silk shantung). Overall, I was so very happy with how my dress looked, and my experience at Tang's that I'll be using them for any alterations I need in the future!

XIAO-YIN is amazing at her craft - she does an amazing job at altering wedding gowns. She was able to get my gown altered in about two weeks, at a fraction of the cost of what most other tailors were going to charge. She made me feel extremely comfortable through the whole process, and even helped me pack up my dress so there would be minimal wrinkling while traveling to my destination wedding (i.e. fitting it in a carry-on suitcase).
I would highly recommend her for ALL alteration needs, including every-day alterations, and suit tailoring

Mrs. Tang can do the job, and she does so in a very timely manner. I first called her six months before my wedding to discuss my wedding dress alterations, and she was surprised I called so early. I didn't like the first wedding dress I bought as it looked quite different in my size from the initial gown shopping trip, but took it to her to see what changes she could potentially make. She was honest with me about what she could and couldn't do with my dress, and I ended up buying a different dress that I fell in love with. I took the dress to her in February, and in three weeks I had the dress of my dreams ready to go for my April wedding. What a wonderful lady to work with. You will not regret it.

Before getting into my review, I have to first point out I was a fairly low-maintenance bride. I bought my wedding dress on eBay (J Crew, simple, "new with tags!"), and aimed to lose a little weight to fit into it. I did lose weight, but not enough to fit into the next size down (yes, I bought the dress in two sizes -- the benefits of eBay!).

Luckily, I found Xiao-Yin at Tang's Alterations in Manassas, and she pretty much saved my wedding dress -- literally a week before the big day.

Xiao-Yin was fabulous -- she knew exactly what needed to be done to the dress to make it fit perfectly. She added boning, reinforced stitching, added buttons, took it in where it needed to be taken in. It fit perfectly and was very flattering. She also worked on a lace bolero my mom had made to make it fit perfectly, and even took the time to sew a dime into the jacket (it was my grandmother's "something new" in 1946!).

I had my doubts I could get the dress perfect with so little time left before the big day... but Xiao-Yin was just great. She even said we'd do as many fittings as necessary in the week before the wedding to make sure it was perfect (we needed just one).

Thank you!

Tang was absolutely lovely--and a real life-saver after a terrible experience w/ Ann's Boutique in Burke, VA. She is very practical and honest--I wound up with far fewer alterations and expenses because she suggested doing them in phases to see if I still felt additional work was necessary. I was relaxed, happy and comfortable in my dress all night long thanks to Tang--I would go to her first for any alteration I needed.

When my dress arrived it turned out to be a size too small! Even though she had to completely take my dress apart, Xiao-Yin was able to work her miracles so that I could walk down the aisle in my dress on my wedding day.
