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.

    Phenomenal Experience

    Gale did a truly wonderful job with my wedding dress alterations. Turns out the dress that was "just my size" needed quite a number of adjustments to fit me well, and she executed them perfectly. I was so pleased with how it looked after she was done. Thank you!

    Best tailor experience!

    My fiancé purchased a suit from an online retailer to wear for our wedding and, despite his best efforts to take accurate measurements, it arrived fairly ill-fitting. Cheryl A Lofton & Associates did a fantastic job making the necessary adjustments and were extremely communicative every step of the way. The turn-around time was very fast and the suit looks absolutely fantastic. To anyone out there needing adjustments on their suits, even for very special occasions, we would highly recommend Cheryl A Lofton & Associates and will be returning there for all of our tailoring needs!

    Cheryl Lofton & Associates's reply:

    Thank you, Alexandra! We appreciate the kind review! You both were such a pleasure to work with. We wish you two a lifetime of love (& hope to see you again)!
