  • I custom ordered my beautiful dress and when it arrived the sleeves and arm holes were waaaaay too small. I had another seamstress lined up to help me with alterations who couldn't help because of a family emergency. I contacted Cheryl's studio with three weeks to go. Her staff was very accommodating, and gave me a same day appointment. I arrived and put the dress on to show the alterations person what was wrong. Cheryl herself offered to zip up the dress, and got really nervous when I explained that we couldn't because of the sleeves being too small. At this point I still hadn't even seen the dress on me, because of how small the sleeves were. Martha the alterations specialist took one look at the dress and had me remove. She disappeared with it and came back 10 minutes later having undone the sleeves and part of the bottom seam of the armholes (this is the before photo). I put the dress back on and it zipped up perfectly, a bit snug, but perfectly. Martha pinned everything in place t... Read more

  • Cheryl and her team were amazing! She tailored my wedding dress and my husband's suit. My wedding dress was a honeycomb lace which made me nervous for making alterations. Her team did a great job and even made a few last minute adjustments so I would feel comfortable the day of our wedding. My husband waited until two weeks before our wedding to get his suit and she was able to turn his suit around within a week. I took my wedding dress in about 4-6 weeks prior to our wedding date. Thanks Cheryl and team!!!

  • I highly recommend Cheryl and her team to anyone looking for alterations for their dress be it bridal or bridesmaid or even everyday wear! I purchased my wedding dress from Jcrew and they unfortunately would not recommend anyone in the DC area who would take a Jcrew gown. I'm so lucky I found Cheryl as they've worked with lots of Jcrew dresses and were comfortable with the material. Martha did my alterations and she did a fabulous job - suggesting improvements that I wouldn't have thought of! I picked it up this weekend and I am so excited to wear it on my wedding day! I will definitely be back again and I highly recommend them for all future brides :)

  • I went to Chery Lofton and Associates with a crisis. I had had a very bad experience with my wedding dress vendor (review coming soon) and I needed someone to alter and fix some defects in less than 2 weeks. Yes, you read that correctly, less than two weeks. Cheryl and her team quickly put my mind at ease and told me that while it would be difficult---they would get it done. And they did! In a matter of two weeks I was able to have 3 fittings and my dress was perfect! Thank you Cheryl and team!

  • Thank you yelp and wedding wire for the reviews. I very happily used Cheryl Lofton to alter my gown because my dress vendor was too far away. I had them take in at the zipper and pull up on the straps so to speak. The dress fit like a glove, literally. The people working here were always very friendly and I was in and out of fittings at lightening speed.

  • Gale at Cheryl Lofton did a fantastic job on my wedding dress. My dress was simple, but two sizes too big. By the time Gale was done with it, it fit me like a glove. She was committed to making every last detail look right. The dress turned out just beautifully. The price was right, the location was convenient, all the staff were friendly. Highly recommend for ladies who don't want to hoof it to the suburbs.

  • I had such a great experience getting my lace wedding dress altered. Gail did an absolutely beautiful job! I felt that Gail really wanted my dress to be perfect. Even when I went in for my last fitting, she suggested just one more tiny adjustment, which I so appreciated because even though it looked great already, she just wanted it to be absolutely 100% perfect. I would recommend starting your bridal fitting early in order to give the professionals at Cheryl Lofton's plenty of time to work their magic! Plus, I love the atmosphere in the store and I had fun just going to my bridal fittings.

  • Gail did my alterations for my wedding dress and was the epitome of professionalism. The quality of her alterations, her helpful suggestions for additional dress edits, and just her sweet nature in general were all top notch! She even offered to hold onto my dress after my final dress fitting (a week before my wedding) to steam it and my veil for me to pick up closer to the date of my wedding. My dress fit me perfectly! I couldn't have asked for a better experience. -Tiffany

  • Cheryl and her staff are excellent. They really know what they are doing and came up with a very creative way to do my bustle. Their prices are very reasonable for DC and for the quality of work. They were flexible with scheduling fittings and a really nice and professional group of people to work with. They were also fun!

  • Cheryl and her assistant did a terrific job, on a tight deadline. I got my original dress back from a separate seamstress and hated how I looked in it. Absolutely hated it. So three weeks before my wedding, I bought a new dress from J Crew, which was perfect except for being slightly too long. I frantically called Cheryl to see if they could hem it. They were able to do it quickly and on my timeline, without a rush fee. They were so kind when I got there, too -- they opened the dress and told me it "looked like me." They did beautiful work, and put in a bustle of a better quality and sophistication than I was expecting. The workmanship was really lovely. I will definitely go back for other alterations.

  • I highly recommend Cheryl Lofton & Associates. I went to Cheryl to have a bridesmaid dress altered. My experience was so wonderful that I'm looking for an excuse to go back. I took the dress in on a Saturday and needed it before I flew out for the wedding on Friday. Cheryl said no problem. There was no rush fee. It was completed on Tuesday and fit perfectly. I hate strapless dresses but she made it fit like a glove so there was no need to keep pulling it up. Cheryl is very knowledgeable about the proper fit of clothing and I trust her judgment and guidance when discussing how to go about making changes. Not to mention- everyone I interacted with was so kind and relaxed which made the experience even more enjoyable. If you need alterations on a special garment--look no further than Cheryl Lofton & Associates.

  • Gail at Cheryl Lofton & Associates tailored a beautiful but terribly fitting dress I bought online from the other side of the country. It looked pretty frumpy when I took it to her, but now it fits me like a glove. Gail and Cheryl were both incredibly friendly and delightful to work with. I went in once for the initial fitting, went once more, when we decided she'd take it in a bit more, and then I went back to try it on and take it home today. I'm very satisfied and would definitely recommend them to anyone!

  • I got my wedding dress altered here and had a wonderful experience. The women that work here are fun to be around, give helpful advice, and go above and beyond to make sure your dress fits perfectly. They are also very affordable compared to other places in the DC area. Scheduling appointments was a little difficult, but I was never concerned about my dress being done on time.
