After getting engaged my mom offered me my grandmas wedding dress to wear on my special day. Naturally I was nervous taking a delicate family heirloom dress that was handmade in the late 1930s/early 1940s into alterations. After searching all over the DMV area and getting estimates at several places that would cost what I new dress would cost I found Irina. I'm not exaggerating when I say going to Irina saved me HUNDREDS of dollars. She is extremely talented and usually makes custom dresses from scratch. She was clear in describing alterations to the dress and provided me a sketch on the spot of the changes and how much each would cost. She was also easy to communicate with by phone and email to schedule appointments and flexible since I was driving 45 minutes from DC to her location. Irina also went beyond my expectations when I found out I'd be moving out of state and instead of having several months to finish the alterations she had two weeks. She completed the dress ahead of schedule for my final appointment without any extra cost. Also during the final appointment she also created a belt and cathedral length veil to match the dramatic train on my dress. I couldn't be happier with the results and I cannot wait to wear the dress on my wedding day.
I can't say enough great things about Jaime and Ailleacht Fashions. She did an amazing job on my wedding dress. My dress is a fitted mermaid style with ruching and a huge bottom with ruffles. It was way too big, she made it fit like a glove and put this beautiful bustle in (you can't even tell if it's bustled or supposed to look like that!). Her prices were great and she was so flexible with scheduling fittings / me always running late! I will definitely be going back to her with other dress and alteration needs!
Allow me to set the scene. I own a very pretty lilac crocheted dress that I've had for years and I absolutely love it! One day a few months ago, out of sheer laziness, I decided to clean the dress in the washing machine instead of washing it out by hand as the instructions very plainly say. When I opened the door to the washer after the last cycle was complete, I pulled out the horribly mangled lilac mess you see pictured below. Needless to say, I was devastated. How could I have been so careless with my beloved dress?! With very little optimism, I searched the internet for someone who could repair crocheted items. I stumbled across the Thumbtack site and found Scarlett. Scarlett had one glowing review after another. It was apparent that she was a master at her craft. I didn't have a doubt in my mind those reviews were true. But given the condition of my dress, I didn't even think Scarlett had the ability to save it. In my mind, no one could fix that dress. It was impossible. But I still decided to give her a chance. I brought the dress to her, she looked it over. She indicated unhesitatingly that she could fix it. I, of course, was very doubtful but I appreciated her effort to try and fix my dress nonetheless. A couple months later, I hear from Scarlett. "Your dress is ready" she says. She explains that it took a little longer than usual to finish because she had a hard time finding the exact thread to match the rest of my dress. I made arrangements to pick up the dress. En route, I wonder how the dress will look but I have no expectations. Again, I'm just appreciative for her efforts to take on the seemingly (operative word) impossible task of salvaging my dress. As I walk into Scarlett's apartment, she goes to retrieve my dress. When she unfolds it and holds it up before me, I can not believe my eyes. MY DRESS LOOKS JUST AS IT DID THE DAY I BOUGHT IT!!! Scarlett had taken the mangled mess that I was certain could NEVER be repaired and transformed it back into the dress that I'd become so fond of! I know that my review is very long but I deemed it necessary to say all of this in order for people to fully understand just how completely AMAZING Scarlett is. All the reviews that praise her work - they're all true. Scarlett is phenomenal at what she does and I would recommend her in a heartbeat. I will definitely be using her again for my future alteration, sewing needs. In addition to being good at what she does, she is also very pleasant to deal with. By all means - enlist Scarlett for your alteration/sewing needs. I promise that you won't be sorry.
Naan did an outstanding job on making a dress for my God-daughter. We were please with the product and the process. It was a great experience a budding fashionista. Naan patiently explained the process, what material we should get (because we wanted to be very involved in the process), and helped us create beautiful one-of-a kind dress. Mother, daughter and aunt were completely satisfied...no small task as we all had our own ideas. Thanks so much Naan!
Working with Lorie was the most exciting experience ever. She had patience of a saint during the fittings. As I know I was very demanding.Lorie walked me through the entire process smoothly with no hesitation,grace & ease. The finishing product was AMAZING.She turned my scrambled vision into real life. I feel forever grateful & have recommended her to EVERYONE that is need of her skills. She is a diamond in the rough!

Ms. Ama of Genesis Bridal is the greatest service provider I've met in a long time. She is very friendly, professional and proactively cost-conscious on the client's behalf. Ama responded to my quick-turnaround Thumbtack request to have a bridesmaid's dress altered, and she had a better understanding of what I was asking for than I myself had. I presented her with a challenging job, since I had a short timeframe but did not have enough material for her to work with and did not yet have the shoes I needed for the correct measurements. She has been very patient with me while moving quickly at the same time. Her shop is charming and easy to find in the old town section of Laurel. Parking was easy and she offered several times to adjust her own schedule to meet my needs. I have been very pleased so far and I am looking forward to seeing the final product. Thank you Genesis Bridal!
I am truly impressed! The details and beadwork really make my dress appear as it is walking out the painting. This is one of my best wedding gifts ever!
She was wonderful! She hemmed my dress, put in a bustle, shortened up the straps, sewed cups into the dress, sewed on my bridal belt, AND she took the waistline in for me after I lost some weight. She was wonderful! She adjusted the dress twice to make sure that everything was perfect and comfortable for me and her prices are phenomenal (much better value compared to Davids Bridal). Book her NOW!
Where has My been all my life!!! She came to our RESCUE! Another "seamstress" messed my daughters dress up and My was able to not only fix her mistakes but LISTEN to what my daughter wanted in the first place. My is AWESOME. Her home office, FABULOUS and her family just as sweet as they come! We will go to My FIRST next time! A+++
I have more than 10 years of experience in designing, sewing and retouching all types of dresses for girls and women. In my country before coming to the USA, I had my own business, and I wish to continue the same activity. I have a special skill to quickly make a dress in less than one day.
Ali made for me an engagement dress .It was the best dress ever, green color. With details that were perfectly applied and sewed

I've been going to the Youngs Cleaners for a few years now. It's convenient for me, because I shop at the H-Mart. (very good produce at very good price!) I really love the Alteration service at Youngs Cleaners. I've benefited from the "rush service" a few times, and it gets done right the first time. I wish you the best, Julia!

I loved my dress so much!! I literally have no complaints about anything!! My dress was beautiful.. it fit me perfectly. She was always happy!! Everything was just perfect!!
She was able to do the impossible. Completing adjustments on a pageant dress in less than 24 hours was amazing! I look forward to working with her again.
Susan made my graduation dress and left a lasting impression. After my celebration she made my cousins traditional wedding dress and did several alterations for my moth. Everything was great! Let's just say she is the go to person for my family and friends. She is talented and has a lot of experience! I highly recommend her services.
Denis is an outstanding tailor. I came to him with an idea for a 17th century dress that I have seen in a museum (Silver Tissue Dress) and he immediately showed me how it can be made and what it will look like, he designed and decorated it and it looks as if it came from the court of Lois XIV. The dress is beautiful, the tailoring impeccable and the pleats he did are meticulous. I felt like a princess wearing it at the Venice carnival this year. I definitely recommend him and will contact him for future costume events. He not only has the skill to sew well but he is a great designer as well. Thank you!
I came to Aubrey to get a custom-designed Renaissance wedding dress. I had a few reference pictures of different styles in mind, and she combined them into a design that I loved! She checked in with me regularly and made sure that the design was exactly what I had wanted. She did several mock-ups in white fabric for fittings, adjusting the dress as I changed my mind a few times about the neckline and the size of the sleeves. (She is very patient!) We went through multiple rounds of swatching fabrics and when I fell in love with a gorgeous silk with limited yardage available, she made it work. As she was making the gown itself, I came in for multiple fittings, to make sure that things were fitting well – she even adjusted the fit of the sleeves so I could dance more enthusiastically. She added pockets to my dress, so I was able to have my phone and a few other things on me, and it didn’t show. And – very exciting – I was able to go to the bathroom by myself on my wedding day! Aubrey suggested shoes and jewelry to go with the gown, and even created trim out of two different kinds of lace to get the look that I wanted. Aubrey is did an amazing job and I highly recommend her!
