Best tailor in DC
Cheryl Lofton and her team are seamstress queens. I created a custom dress that I THOUGHT fit, and realized through my fittings at Cherly Lofton, that we could make the dress look 3 times as good. My dress had lace, sparkles, sleeves - all the difficult stuff, and the team handled all alterations with ease. Cheryl also helped me FINALLY find a jumpsuit that was not see-through -and my seamstress had to basically remake it because I have a very long torso. It fit like a dream after my fitting. Their prices are maybe 10% more than average in DC, but when you are getting something tailored, don’t you want it to be perfection? It’s worth the $5-10 extra dollars.Sent on 12/16/2018

Amazing, affordable alterations on an expensive silk dress
I bought my wedding dress from a luxury boutique in Philadelphia that was going to do $1,000 of alterations free of charge with my purchase. I quickly realized it wouldn’t be possible to drive to PA for every fitting leading up to my wedding, so panicked about who to trust my dress with. I called a few places recommended by friends, and most quoted $900-1000. Cheryl Lofton gave me a much more reasonable price. I was worried about trusting my delicate silk dress with someone I hadn’t used before, but the tailors here did amazing! They were super quick, but did great quality alterations so my dress fit perfectly (and I was even nitpicky about every last change needed). So glad to have found them. Will definitely use them for future alterations.Sent on 06/30/2019
