Our History

As a third generation tailor, Cheryl began sewing at the young age of 12 under the tutelage of her grandfather, the late J.C. Lofton. Mr. J.C. Lofton was the first African American to have a tailoring school in conjunction with a thriving business in downtown Washington DC. His reputation endures as the standard by which Cheryl A. Lofton & Associates service their clients to this day: Quality, Integerity, and Community.

Services Offered

We offer full-service tailoring as well as customization, repairs, and even custom suiting. Our specialists have decades of experience with both traditional gowns, couture pieces, suiting, bridemaids dresses, vintage pieces, and custom designs. We have hundreds of fabrics to choose from for custom suiting and shirting as well. There is little that we cannot do.

    Transformed online dress into custom-tailored masterpiece!

    I bought a beautiful Lela Rose gown online for my wedding but it was two sizes two big. Cheryl and her team took the dress apart and put it back together in such a beautiful way that it looked like the dress was custom made. Miss Valerie also suggested alternations that made me look even BETTER, including a belt that she made from the extra dress material! And the price was VERY reasonable. If you're picky like me and want someone to help you look fabulous for your big day, look no further!
