  • Maria Luz did such a fantastic job with my alteration and pressing. She removed the top layer of my dress to give more color and movement, sewed on comfortable cups inside the dress, and hemmed and pressed it. I definitely felt like a princess that day!

  • Where to start....Maria was incredible! I was sooooo nervous when I came for my initial fitting. I had two months until the wedding and knew my dress would need a lot of work. I purchased my dream dress at a sample sale, the top of the dress did not fit as I wanted and it had delicate beadwork all over it. Maria immediately calmed my fears and started to pin the dress until it was EXACTLY what I wanted. To get it to fit as I wanted she had to remove some of the beading and then re-bead it in the same pattern! I am still getting rave reviews on my dress and it would not be possible without her!!

  • Maria was so easy to work with, and did a phenomenal job altering my wedding dress! As someone who’s only 5’ tall, my dress needed some pretty extensive alterations (including completely dismantling and rebuilding the illusion lace high neckline of my dress so it wasn’t choking me!) and everything came out looking flawless. It’s pricier than some of the other places I was considering, but in my mind the cost was well worth it for the quality of work Maria does. She even made me a matching mask to wear using extra lace from my dress, which all of the guests at our micro-wedding LOVED!

  • Maria is truly exceptional at what she does! Not only does she bring literal decades of experience to what she does, she is one of the kindest, funniest, and most genuine vendors that I've had the pleasure to work with. Maria had no ulterior motives and made recommendations based on my specific wedi dress and what would look best on me. She showed me all of my options throughout the process so I had an understanding of what the wedding dress would like with and without alterations. Maria wasnlt pushy and worked well with me to ensure that everything would be done on time and would look great on the day. I wouldn't recommend anyone else to do wedding dress alterations!

  • Maria was amazing! Was accommodating to my schedule and somehow made my too-small dress fit me. Would recommend!

  • Maria came recommended by BHLDN Georgetown and I figured she might be more affordable than some of the tailors in DC. She was very direct and warm and is able to balance a lot of foot traffic while always delivering her work on time. I was nervous about my dress since it was all beaded and had to be taken in almost everywhere. She made it fit like a glove (but with room to dance) and I didn't lose a single bead!

  • Maria did a wonderful job with my wedding gown! She knew just how it should fit, even though it was too big when I brought it in. She told me where it should hit me and how it should fall, and gave me an option on how much I wanted to taper through the thighs. Appointments with her were always on time and quick, but thorough. She even tailored several dresses for me to bring on my honeymoon! The week of my wedding (Oct 5 - a very busy wedding week), she was running a bit behind schedule, so she offered to drive my dress to me over an hour away. She is a lovely woman who is excellent at her craft. Highly recommend!

  • My dress was a bit too big when I bought it because I had lost some weight by the time my wedding day arrived. Anytime Alterations did an AMAZING job. Personalized service and my dress fit perfectly. It was taken in, hemmed and steamed. I plan on returning to get cleaned and preserved as well. Highly recommend!

  • I brought my wedding dress to Anytime Alterations to get it hemmed, decoration added, and fix an issue with the bodice not fitting correctly. They quickly identified the problem and made the adjustments so that my dress fit perfectly. I got so many compliments on it during my wedding! The only hiccup was that they didn't have the dress ready for pickup on the day that I had scheduled, but they were quick to correct the mistake, finding my dress and delivering it to my house only an hour later (and in rush hour traffic). Very pleased with both the quality of the work, customer service, and professionalism, as well as the level of experience they have dealing with wedding dresses.

  • Maria did an incredible job! My dress arrived 5 weeks before the wedding and still required significant alterations on a dress with elaborate beading and lace. She was able to squeeze me in during weekends and I received so many compliments on the dress. She is so conscientious of her work that she put in a zipper reinforcement to make sure nothing went wrong on my wedding day and even came out to the car and showed us how to load and unload the dress so that it wouldn't wrinkle. I did have to pay a rush fee since it was less than 8 weeks before the wedding, so keep that in mind when you plan alterations. Lesson learned - tell the bridal shop that your wedding is 2 months before the real date so that it arrives on time.

  • I found Maria by recommendation from BHLDN Georgetown. I don't live in DC nor near Kesington, but was willing to make the hour drive from Baltimore. My husband and I found out in September we were leaving for Germany, and needed to be married before we left. I found an 'easy to tailor' dress from BHLDN that needed to be four inches shorter, and was all lace. I took it to Maria in mid-october and told her I needed it in 2 months. She did a phenomenal job with the lace, was reasonably priced (there wasn't a quick turn around fee like I feared), and it turned out beautifully. Lace can be tricky, especially since my dress wasn't a simple cut (I wanted to leave the bottom detailing), and you can't tell it was ever hemmed! I highly recommend her, and will get my dressed cleaned by her.

  • I’d recommend Maria at Anytime Alterations over David’s Bridal or any other alterations department that you’d find at a typical cleaners. Maria is much more than just a seamstress and has a designer’s vision when it comes to altering garments. She also has a fabulous heart and sense of humor, and will make your fitting experience worth the visit. I went to Anytime Alterations to have my strapless bridesmaid gown hemmed and to add off-the-shoulder straps. When I tried on the dress with the extra fabric for the straps, Maria suggested attaching an off-the-shoulder wrap instead of straps, and the results were gorgeous. The alteration that she suggested made the dress much more flattering and added a flowy, romantic look that was beyond anything I would have ever imagined or suggested myself. See even created a little fabric cover for my strapless bra, so that it wouldn’t show through the low back of the dress. If you’re looking for a seamstress to alter your bridal wear... Read more

  • I had a less than satisfying experience here taking my dress to consult on alterations. While service was prompt and I'm probably would have been fine technically, I experienced a level of condescension, rudeness, and negativity that I found unacceptable. I also experienced a dramatic change from initial quote to final quote without a clear explanation. Ultimately I did not feel that I would want to continue to interact with Maria and would not recommend to others.

  • I chose Anytime Alterations to alter and clean my bridal gown based on their excellent reviews, and they are worth the high praise. Maria is very personable and discusses the alteration options with her clients. Even with her years of expertise she still valued and incorporated my input. She did fabulous work on altering my bridal gown to make it the perfect fit for me! She also sells various bridal accessories, I purchased my headpiece from her.
