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.

    Wonderful experience

    I came to Cheryl and Gale (not sure if I’m spelling her name right) after a HORRIBLE wedding dress alteration experience elsewhere (review to come). They were able to squeeze me in less than a month from my November wedding date. My wedding dress was mangled and Gale worked her MAGIC in a series of nearly 4 appointments to essentially reconstruct the dress to make it the beautiful masterpiece it was meant to be. It fit me like a glove and complemented me in all the right places. After every appointment, I left feeling assured that my dress would be taken care of and that they both truly cared about my satisfaction. I felt so confident and beautiful on our special and it’s all thanks to them. The professionalism, flexibility, meticulous attention to detail, levity (they were both really good at making me smile and laugh during a very stressful time), and superior knowledge of tailoring—you really can’t go wrong here. I will certainly be back for other pieces. Highly, highly recommend!

    Beautiful alterations and excellent service

    Cheryl Lofton & Associates did a beautiful job with the alterations for my wedding dress. The fit wound up being just perfect--comfortable to wear all day and incredibly flattering--as you can see in the pictures! The experience of getting the alterations was also lovely. I fainted in the store during the session (fainting is just a thing I do), and they were so patient, generous, and warm with me as I recovered and then through the rest of the alterations. I'd highly recommend both the gorgeous final product and the experience!
