Mrs. Dora is the best bridal alterations shop in GA!!!! I called her on a Sunday two weeks before my wedding asking for a bustle after I had not even tried my dress in five months. She allowed me to come over the same day and the top of my dress would not close. I was nervous but she assured me my dress would be perfect for the wedding. End results...it is fantastic!!!! She fixed my bust, let out the dress, hemmed it and created a beautiful (not poopy bottomed like most places) bustle. The dress looked much better than when I brought it in. Mrs. Dora provides happy, patient, professional and affordable services. She is honest about what she can do and how you will look. Even when she was ill her main concern was getting my dress done. If you trust her and listen, your dress will be exactly what you want. Don't take your dress to anyone else...go to Dora Baker Bridal Alterations.

Dora is amazing! I was the Matron of Honor in my sister's wedding and made the mistake of not trying on my Bridesmaid's dress after bringing it home from the store! When I tried it on 6 days before the wedding, it was way too long, the bust was to loose, and the hips were too tight! I was not about to be a Matron of Honor in a dress that needed work! But I was worried because it was so close to the wedding date! But Dora saved me!!! She was able to see me the very next day, took quick measurements, and got the work done in 4 days!!! I was able to pick up my dress a day early and it fit like a glove! I got so many compliments on my dress and was told many times how flattering it was to my figure! :) THANK YOU DORA!!!! **She also did MY wedding dress in 2012 and did an incredible job then too!

Dora was the most talented, caring, and affordable alterationist imaginable. She used her amazing eye to turn my mother's vintage wedding dress into my dream gown, preserving the quality and sentimental value while modernizing it to fit my tastes. And if that was not enough, she was the ONLY vendor who didn't take advantage of my budget. It was so refreshing to have such a passionate artist care so much about my happiness while remaining fair in value. My wedding wouldn't have been nearly as perfect without this woman!

I am a size 8 and not very tiny. I have a "busty" figure but Dora made me feel and look so small, with an elegant silhouette. It fit me like a glove and I was so happy, the way it looked on my body! You did an amazing job!!!! You took the time to make sure every inch of it fit me like it was suppose to! You were a life saver and an awesome seamstress! Thank you for all that you have done and continue to do! I would suggest you over anyone, for a bridal dress fitting and alteration!

Dora Baker did a great job on my wedding dress! I received so many compliments on how well my dress fit. My dress had a lace hem and she was able to take it up in length and it looked perfect. I do not live in Atlanta, but Dora was very flexible and even met with me at 8 PM on a Friday evening because that was the only time I could meet. Dora was very thorough and I had multiple fittings to make sure the dress fit me perfectly. I felt that Dora did a great job on my dress and the price was affordable.

I bought my dress off the rack from a local dress outlet that recommended that I go to their "high-end couture" seamstresses in the city...only problem was that they were charging me $600-700 minimum for the alterations I would want! I knew I had to keep looking and found Dora on Yelp/weddingwire and read her amazing reviews. She is doing even more alterations than the high-end stores had quoted me at nearly half the price!!! HIGHLY recommend her for dress alterations, she has 40+years experience from working at the same high-end stores in the city before deciding to branch off on her own. She's so sweet, too! My dress now looks more amazing than I could have imagined!

Dora is absolutely incredible. Not only is she the best in terms of her workmanship and value, she is sweet and cares about her brides. She did not stop until she got my dress to fit perfectly. She was half the price of what the salon quoted me, and she did additional work to make the dress unique like I wanted it. She even made my veil and garter with lace from my dress. I was constantly blown away by her abilities and how much she cared about making everything perfect. She is amazing.

Dora Baker by far exceeded my every expectation. From the very first phone call to walking out of her home with the finalized version of my dress, fitted just for me, the experience was simply amazing. I'm so grateful and thankful that I found Dora and HIGHLY, HIGHLY recommend her to any and everyone!!! ~ Sara G.

Dora is a wonderful seamstress. She takes the time to learn about you then make your dress not vice versa. I would recommend her to anyone. She took into account every curve in my body to create a perfect dress for me.

Mrs. Baker was wonderful! I originally came to her with a J Crew bridesmaid's dress that she worked wonders on. When it was my turn to be the bride I returned to her with a Marchesa bridal gown that she finished in a matter of weeks. I would recommend her to any of my friends. She did a beautiful job.

Dora was very accommodating with my schedule. Although I called her only about a little over a month before my wedding date she took me on as a client, and she worked with me to decide which days worked for me to come in. When meeting her she was friendly and made each session comfortable. In three sessions, my wedding dress's alterations were completed! I LOVE how it turned out!
