  • Cheryl and her team did a fantastic job on my wedding dress. Everything I wanted they did with precision and perfection. When I went to pickup my dress it was beautifully preserved and looked like it belonged in a storefront, just lovely!

  • They were great! From my fitting to my pick up, the staff were attentive, kind, and efficient. Also, every time I was waiting in the lobby/front area, other clients came in with gratitude and lots of smiles, with stories and photos of their weddings. I definitely recommend!

  • I'm so happy with how my dress turned out! I had the dress taken in, raised the waist, and added a belt. When I had a last-minute work trip that conflicted with my second (and most important) fitting, the staff was able to work with my schedule and squeeze me in before my travel. My seamstress Maria did an amazing job, and Cheryl and her staff were incredible to work with. I will definitely be coming back for alterations for my regular clothes.

  • Cheryl Lofton & Associates were great to work with - very professional, responsive, and skilled. When I noticed a small issue with my dress after getting home, they got me in the next morning to take care of it free of charge. I would highly recommend them.

  • I took my wedding 3 piece (corset, skirt and lace overlay) to Cheryl for bridal alterations and I could not be happier. I was working with Martha through the process, she was very sweet and did a great job handling my outfit. The skirt was a silk tulle, beautiful, but pretty hard to handle, But Martha did amazing. She made sure everything fit me like a glove. I live in the neighborhood too, so it was great to get it all done close to home and support local business that been around so long. Very happy with end result!

  • I found Cheryl Lofton & Assoc through Yelp actually, and right away had a great feeling about it. I love that it's a small and local business. Moreover, I loved the photos posted showing the beautiful work done. Going for my first fitting, my positive feelings were affirmed. My dress I bought "used" but never worn at an amazing price. It had a beautiful lace train, but I wanted zero train, not even just a nice bustle. The idea of cutting the lace though broke my heart. The woman helping me and I came up with a plan of essentially using small (and removable) stitches as pickups. (Wish I could post a photo.) It was executed perfectly and looked like it was always meant to be that way. Gorgeous! My fiancé purchased a handmade tux from India. It was actually amazingly awesome, but it arrived only two weeks before the big event (heart attack!) and the fit of the pants can only be described as hilarious. Again we went to Cheryl and associates. The alterations were perfectly fitted a... Read more

  • Cheryl and Gail did wonderful work to adjust a dress I bought off the rack in a department store. They are easy to work with, deliver great quality quickly, and charge reasonable prices. I am so glad I found them for my wedding dress alterations and plan to use them for alternations for everyday clothes from now on.

  • Cheryl Lofton and her excellent team transformed a too-large column wedding dress into a beautiful (and comfortable) dress that looked exquisite on my wedding day. I can't recommend her enough.

  • My dress was beautiful and fit amazingly. I worried about having a strapless dress as someone with a larger bust; I didn't want to be pulling at it all night. The dress stayed in place beautifully through an entire night of hugs and dancing. They were also very accommodating with a last minute request. My father passed away less than a week before my wedding, and I was able get a piece of heart shaped fabric sewn into my dress just 2 days before my wedding without any hesitation or delay. I will always be grateful for that, as it allowed my father to still walk me down the aisle.

  • Working with Cheryl and Martha to tailor my off-the-rack gown was wonderful - I could not have wished for a better experience. I'm not one who usually likes to feel like a princess, but Cheryl and her whole team gave me their undivided attention and they worked wonders to make my dress absolutely perfect, and I could not be more grateful to have had such a pro team on my side. My dress was purchased in Massachusetts, where my family is located, so my mother and I knew we would want to find a local tailor in DC as planning ramped up and the number of trips to the tailor increased. My mom drove my dress down and we went straight to Cheryl Lofton, having booked our appointment in advance to make sure we had our pick of the appointment times. My mom was understandably hesitant about letting her baby and her baby's wedding dress go tended to without her there as planning ramped up, but Cheryl and Martha immediately set her mind at ease. Their warmth, professionalism, and attention to de... Read more
