  • *****

    Ms.Juanita has been custom tailoring finery for Columbia's ladies in the know for eons. Her upstairs salon, tucked away on Main Street, features plush carpeting, crystal chandaliers, silk draperies and plenty of mirrors to watch her work her magic for your special day. Her downstairs neighbor, Lori runs House of Fabrics and makes regular jaunts to New York for the finest fabrics and embellishments. See how many Miss SC and other pageant winners she has adorned. Don't be worried that she's tucked away upstairs. She stays booked and busy. Her sweet grand-daughter plays the violin as she sews. Best of luck, whatever the occasion. She worked her magic for me on many memorable occasions, redesigning a vintage St.Pucci silk gown for my wedding.

    Juanita's Designs is a miracle worker. I had to take my bridesmaid dress to her to fix somebody else's mistake. She was able to fix it and hem the rest of the dress as it needed to be and it looked great! You couldn't even tell! She was also able to do it in 3 business days and for $20. Definitely my new go-to seamstress!

    Ms Juanita is the best! So helpful and professional and affordable.

    I had an alteration emergency one Tuesday afternoon. I suddenly discovered that my bridesmaid dress was too long, for a wedding the upcoming Saturday. I called around to local tailors and everyone turned me away, except Juanita. She was very lovely to deal with, and told me to bring it right on over, it would be finished by Friday lunchtime. I rushed over, and immediately felt like I was in good hands. When I picked up my dress, it was just perfect! I had the straps shortened a bit too, and everything looked like it had originally come that way. One down point is that she doesn't take credit/debit cards, so remember to bring cash or a check.

    Juanita took a sample gown that I bought from a boutique and transformed it into the dress of my dreams for my wedding day. She made the impossible possible when it came to my vision and the way the dress was originally made. Price wise, the alterations were not the least expensive... But you get what you pay for, and this was not a purchase I was willing to cut costs on. I am taking her two bridesmaids dresses today for weddings that I'm in this year. She definitely has a repeat customer! :)

    Top Notch!
    I went to Juanita with bridal gown to have some details removed and to have it bustled. She was very professional and experienced. From what I understand she has been in her location for over 25 years. She can do anything from minor to major alterations as well as custom items. A friend of mine is having her design a dress after one that Salma Hayek wore.

    EXCELLENT SERVICE!!!

    I took my $2,000 wedding dress there to be altered because I was real picky about the cleanliness, and handling of my garments.  She told me what she could do to my dress, and I came back within a couple of weeks to fit and it was perfect! Was so happy.  Have recently been back to bring some of my other clothes to be altered. Quick turn around. Satisfied repeat customer.  Great friendly service, very clean and elegant environment.  Would definitely recommend.

    I ordered a wedding gown online that needed some alterations and a new slip. Juanita and her granddaughter were super nice and even with short notice, got my dress perfectly altered and returned to me a week before my wedding for a great price. Highly recommend Juanita's!

    Very friendly and helpful when it came to altering my wedding dress. I got it back within a very reasonable time and price. I also had some expensive jeans and a suit altered too and I highly recommend them. Very clean and organize place that looks like a studio out of NY.

    I took a dress to Juanita's to get alterations, she not only altered the dress but she gave me great ideas to enhance the dress which was also cost efficient. I am getting ready to take another dress to her, I cant wait to work with her again. I drive from North Carolina just to use her.

    I went to Juantia's to have my daughter's wedding dress bustled and some minor alterations. Not only was the work fantastic she was very reasonable price wise. I would not hesitate to use her again.
