Dorie is such a life saver! I went to two other bridal alteration businesses and was told my alterations would cost more than $1k and it would require taking my entire dress apart and rebuilding it. Dorie was able to fix my entire dress WITHOUT taking it apart and she was able to do it for much less than what I had been quoted. I am VERY picky by nature and my weight was fluctuating with the stress of the wedding, so I was being very high maintenance about certain aspects of my dress as the cut and material were very unforgiving. Dorie took all my concerns in stride and addressed every request and worry I had and put me at ease by presenting me with a dress that fit like a glove. I felt beautiful on my wedding day and it was largely due to Dorie making changes to my dress to help me feel more confident. Highly recommend! I've even gone back to her to have her alter other special occasion clothing. She's the best and her dog is super cute!
Wow! I'm so glad I found Dorie through a friend recommendation. My dress is very detailed with lots of lace and I was getting quoted way above my budget until I met Dorie. She was able to alter my wedding dress but still keep the detail in place which I know is very time consuming! My dress fits soo0 perfect and I couldn't tell that it's been altered because the lace and details is still in place! I am so impressed with her work and love how my wedding dress fits so perfectly! Her pricing is very reasonable and she is such a sweet lady overall. Although I didn't have much time left before the wedding she assured me I would get it done in a time and sure enough it was. I highly recommend Dorie! Thank you so much!!
Dorie is the best and her work is flawless! My dress was very detailed full of beading and lace. It needed to be let out at the hips and tightened around the back.
When Dorie was finished with it, it fit like a glove! Just perfection! And she didn't need me to come in for multiple fittings.
When I unexpectedly had to move my wedding a month sooner, Dorie was even able to finish the alterations early for me. She goes above and beyond to take the dress stress out of being a bride. I'm so grateful I found her and would recommend her to anyone looking for excellent bridal alterations.
I ordered a dress online which was supposed to be made to my measurements, however I could barely get it on. On top of that, the neckline of my dress came completely wrong. Dorie was able to completely transform my dress and made it fit perfectly. When all was finished, she had turned an ill fitting dress into the dress of my dreams. I would highly recommend Dorie to any bride looking for alterations.
Dorie really was able to execute my vision perfectly. I bought a bridal skirt from The White Dress in Corona Del Mar and wanted a more modern unique top that she created custom for me! She also altered the hem and waste of my skirt. I called SO many different alteration stores in Orange County and they either wouldn't make the top or it was a insanely high price. Dorie was on board and excited to help! As you can see in the photos it turned out flawless and truly was exactly what I wanted. Yes her studio is in her apartment but it is beautiful and she makes you feel so welcomed and comfortable! She works tirelessly and I look up to her work ethic! I would 10000% recommend her to anyone and will be going back to have a bridesmaid dress altered I have to wear. So thankful for her time and talent!
Dorie's studio is stunning. I felt Dorie was serving me in her garden. Nor only her studio is shockingly beautiful and Dorie does great job altering my wedding gown to perfection. She is a gem. She had made me at ease in the whole process. I had consulted a few places before I got referred by a co-worker. Non of them can be comparable to her passion, commitment and confidence to handle the job. I am so blessed to being referred by my co-worker. I can't say enough 'Thank you' to Dorie's hard work and passion solving the challenging problems. I would highly recommend to all brides-to-be.
Dorie literally saved my wedding. I bought my dress from David's bridal and assumed it would be fine to get my alterations from there. After countless issues with them they ordered me a brand new dress and I took it to Dorie. She was able to alter the dress perfectly to my body and did a fantastic job. I had a full ball gown and she altered it for me in less than a week. Thank you so so much Dorie for everything you are the best!
Dorie!! You're an angel and I was so blessed to find you and your incredible studio. You made my day perfect as my dress fit perfect after your skilled hands perfected it. I can't wait until I have another gown for a special occasion with my husband, and I can come to you again for flawless tailoring. You're so wonderful and I give you my highest referral and recommendation. Thank you again for the quality work. Just impeccable.
Dorie Kong was a blessing for my designer wedding dress ! I bought the Berta gown on sample sale with a berta over skirt and there were so many alterations that had to be done . I was honestly freaking out about the amount of alterations after having the dress for over a year due to covid but Dorie came highly recommended and I would highly highly recommended her over and over again . She had to take straps off from the back of my dress add them over the breast area for additional coverage , add hoops to hook the over skirt , add a bustle , fix the lace in areas where it ripped and lastly change out the whole zipper because it broke ! My dress came out perfect and thank you sweet Dorie for all your help . She is very easy to communicate with , texts you back immediately and answers any and all questions you have .
Dorie did an AMAZING job on my wedding dress alteration!! I bought my dress at Kleinfelds in NY and was originally supposed to go back for alterations, but then Covid hit. To my luck I found Dorie who not only made me fully confident in her work, she was also able to get it all done without multiple fittings and my dress fit perfect!!! My dress had a lot of material and needed extensive work, but Dorie was able to get the job done in just a couple weeks. She's very professional and knows exactly what she's doing. I was very impressed and happy with the outcome! She made me feel like a beautiful bride
Dorie is my super hero. My wedding gown was originally altered by the place where I purchased it. It didn't work out. I was so desperate and consulted 2 other seamstresses and they all turned me away. However, I didn't give up. I was fortunate to refer by a friend's friend to see Dorie. With her magical skills, she was able to fix my wedding gown to perfection. I got a lot of compliments on my wedding day and no one noticed it was refashioned. The value and attention I got from Dorie is priceless. I highly recommend 1 thousand % to Dorie for wedding gown alterations. Since she has bridal gown engineering background, needless to say, she has the insights to share with brides.
I don't have a better word to say 'Thank you' to Dorie for making me shined bright like a star on my wedding Day.
Dorie is my super hero. I should have listened to my friend and hired DoriE in the first place. I paid $1250 to the previous seamstress to alter my wedding gown and did not turn out right and even made it worse. Basically, Dorie had to alter it all over. She accepted the challenging project and straightened out all the mistakes. Thank you Dorie for calming my nerves. Most importantly for solving the tricky job in a short notice. She is very professional and reasonable. I am very thankful to Dorie. I would highly recommend to all brides-to-be, to save energy, time , money and avoid getting the stress.
We look forward to meeting and helping you look unforgettable at your event. To get in touch, please text or call Dorie at 714-343-9844
