Dorie Kong is my super hero! She made my dream wedding dress come true. Not only is she darling and a pleasure to work with, she is incredibly talented. She has the gift to visually perceive the way a garmet will best accentuate your body~ complimenting you most fashionably!Sent on 05/27/2009
she is working around the clock. Answers phone calls 24 hrs. a day~ She is flexable and accomodating. reliable, professional, and most reasonable. Soft spoken, she listens, and pays 100% attention to what she is doing.
I first had the pleasure of meeting her, discovering her great services: a year ago, summer of 2008 when she custom made a bridesmaid dress, for me to wear in my best friends wedding. With 7 of us in the bridal party, All turned out to be stunning.
The night before by friends wedding, she was with Dorie~ who was fixing her gown, from another seamstresses "bad alteration" I couldn't believe her ease, working with a frantic bride. She worked some true magic with in minutes. Accepting the job most gracefully!
So when i purchased my wedding gown, off the rack SAMPLE and had the lady at the bridal shop (won't mention where i bought it) begin alterations~ I quickly returned to pick it up...She was butchering it!
It should have gone first to Dori!
She found time to re-create my gown, 1 week before my big day! My dress was more beautiful than i could have ever imagined! It was not cheap, but it WAS reasonable. Considering the amount of work and the time frame~ the outcome was priceless! She did EVERYTHING under the sun to perfect it! My dress and I were stunning!!!
Not only is she the BEST seamstress around, Ive been to many...Nobody, compares to her quality! She also gave me great advise for the type of heals i should be wearing. My vail, under-slip, jewlery, hair etc. without trying to sell my anything. She just had my best interest in mind. This is rare, and i believe it's hard to find.
I'll back up my story with photos, just contact me! If I could I would write her name in the sky, and refer her to Every body. Any one needing an alteration, or custom wedding gown, DORIE KONG IS THE ONE!

I had a great experience with Dorie. She is so kind.
Dorie is amazing!!! I called her a week before my wedding to get the alterations done on my dress and she made it happen. I'm so appreciative for her hard work and dedication. I HIGHLY recommend her to anyone that needs alterations. Thank you so much Dorie.Sent on 09/22/2019

Wonderful working with Dorie
I found Dorie on Wedding Wire. After she sets up your initial appointment, she sends a detailed text message with her address, directions and a map. She runs her business from her studio apartment so it can be hard to find without her details.Sent on 12/13/2018
I recommend coming 10-15 minutes early to find street parking as it can be difficult if your appointment is in the evening. Also, sometimes there's construction from the shopping plaza across the street so that will take away parking space.
Just in case you have allergies, she has a cute and friendly dog named King. He's the sweetest doggy.
Dorie has 30 years experience as a tailor. She is really nice, kind, patient and understanding. She will listen to what you want and will give you her suggestions. Her pricing is reasonable too.
She did alterations on my wedding gown. I didn't need too much done to my dress. She did suggest for me to hem just the front of my dress. I was hesitant at first because when I ordered it from the designer, the hem to length was measured perfectly with my wedding shoes so I didn't feel it was necessary. However, I took her up on her suggestion since she is the expert. The hemming did turn out to be a tad short once I put my heels on. But it actually turned out to be a blessing in disguise because my dress has a cute slit in the middle and with a shorter front hem, it actually shows off my wedding shoes even more. With most brides, you don't even see their wedding shoes! The dress fit me like a glove and I received many compliments.
I brought a white dress and my then fiance's attire that we were planning to wear to the courthouse to get our marriage license for her to do alterations. Our outfits turned out great!
I also had her do alterations on my honeymoon outfits and even my regular clothes.
I would definitely recommend her to any bride who is looking for wedding gown alterations. I know it can be scary to leave your dress with a stranger but trust me, you're in great hands. I wouldn't bring my clothes to anyone else for alterations after meeting Dorie.
