Washington DC brides: who do you recommend for gown alterations?

Recommended Posts

I am looking for any recommended places for wedding gown alterations in either Northern Virginia, Washington D.C. or within an hour drive. I have heard so many horror stories I would love any recommendations anyone has! Thanks!

Bianca here on the forum recommended Xiao Yin from tangsalterations. I haven't been there yet but I go on the 6th of September. I talked to her on the phone and she was such a sweetheart. She explains everything from A to Z. I will let you know how it goes.

Here is their site.

I used

Cheryl Lofton

she's located at 7th and T st NW her # 202.483.5929.

 

She was recommended to me by a custom male suit designer out of NYC who also does work out of DC that is the friend of a friend. He has her do his custom shirts. I basically had two ivory cocktail dresses and had her cut the bottom off of one and sew it on to the other making a seamless full length wedding dress. She also altered some jeans for me that fit me great everywhere but the waist. She did an excellent job and was very professional. Mine was a unique project but she does regular bridal alterations also and has also made custom clothing for people. I'm 6ft and plus-sized so clothign fit is not always the best for me off the rack so I plan to take more of my clothing to her for alterations and plan to have her do a custom suit for my 6'5+ FI who has a hard time finding good fits.
