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.

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.

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.

Dorie did an excellent job altering my Stella York wedding gown. We had several appointments together and continued to work on the dress until I was completely satisfied. My dress was very detailed with lace and layers, and she was a perfectionist to keep the dress in perfect form. It is very difficult to trust someone to alter and protect your wedding dress, but Dorie made it easy! She is great to work with, nearby, and competitive with her pricing. My sister and I both were completely satisfied with her alterations work for both of our gowns. I highly recommend L'Mode Alterations!
