Excellent alterations - I loved the custom back of my dress!
I came to Cheryl Lofton at the recommendation of my Floravere stylists for wedding dress alterations. I worked with Valerie who had altered the same dress for someone else which made me confident that she knew the style and fabric well. Valerie was very down to earth, detail-oriented, and attentive to my preferences. The dress came together wonderfully and I loved the way that we changed the back of the dress and made it into a low V back. I found the prices to be more reasonable than another alterations shop I considered in Alexandria, Virginia. What I appreciated even more was that they gave me a pricing quote free of charge based on what I wanted to change even before I put the dress on! I would absolutely recommend Valerie and Cheryl Lofton for wedding dress alterations.Sent on 04/02/2020

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!Sent on 01/09/2020
