5.0 Based on 23 reviews from review us onTiffanie RadnovichTiffanie Radnovich ★★★★★ Dorita does amazing work with clothing and pet items. Our dog needed his new harness customized to fit his body. Dorita helped us take measurements, completed the work quickly, and made adjustments on the spot. She is the only person we have found in Evansville that would help us with our fur baby!Vince ObermeyerVince Obermeyer ★★★★★ Dorita did great with some uniform sewing I needed. Great response, price, and timeliness!Tara VanceTara Vance ★★★★★ Dorita was able to fix my bridesmaids dress in 2 days! And it looks absolutely amazing! I’m so thankful for her!Melissa SoutherlandMelissa Southerland ★★★★★ I recently took my niece here because she needed to get her concert dress for band altered on pretty short notice. Dorita was able to fit us in very quickly and was able to complete the alterations in plenty of time with a very modest rush fee. We had to change the zippered back of the dress into a laced closing instead. The dress even has a larger back panel so that we shouldn’t have to replace or alter the dress again, which will definitely save us in the long run. My niece needs the dress for two more years still, and it now fits her perfectly with room to grow. And the quality of the alteration is fantastic. It doesn’t even look as if the dress was altered.We also made an appointment to get my niece’s prom dress hemmed once it arrived. Dorita trimmed it to the perfect length and the dress now looks as if it was made to my niece’s measurements exactly. The dress looks as if it’s floating across the floor as my niece moves in it, and the effect is gorgeous. And again, the dress alterations were completed in plenty of time (the prom is still three days away and we picked the dress up today). We couldn’t be happier with the quality, not to mention Dorita’s friendliness. She made us feel very comfortable and we definitely recommend going to her for any tailoring needs you might have.I’ll try to include pictures of both dresses.Though I’ll have to get the pictures of the concert dress from my niece and add it later.Adrienne RobinsonAdrienne Robinson ★★★★★ Dorita was so great.She got us in on a Sunday. The cut of the dress made it a challenge, but she was willing to tackle it.Michelle McDowellMichelle McDowell ★★★★★ She was able to take a wedding dress that didn't fit at all, and turned it into the most beautiful piece of my wedding. The precise details she paid attention to meant a lot. And her price was very reasonable! I will most definitely return to garden view for my next alteration! Thank you so much Dorita!Macey GuntherMacey Gunther ★★★★★ Dorita is amazing!!She listens closely to whatever I need done and always helps me the best way she can! She has made two bridesmaids dresses fit me beautifully and is very professional and timely! I wouldn’t go anywhere else besides Garden View Creations.Destiney HughesDestiney Hughes ★★★★★ Dorita did a great job on the alterations for the dress I wore for my wedding! She seemed very knowledgeable and had a fast turn-around time.Jessie GoadJessie Goad ★★★★★ Dorita is the best!!! She has done skirts and dresses for me and goes above and beyond to make for sure it's perfect and exactly how I want it. She took a very nice winter dress coat in for me from a size XL to almost a size small and it looks brand new! I love her!Charlene SummerfieldCharlene Summerfield ★★★★★ Dorita was absolutely wonderful. I needed a zipper replaced on a formal gown asap and she got it done so fast. The quality of her work is amazing. Thank you for a great experience and definitely will be going back for any future alterations!!Debby VeldersDebby Velders ★★★★★ Not long ago the seamtress I had been using for years retired and I was at a loss for a long time on who to trust. Found Dorita, texted her and she was able to take care of summer pants. Not only did she hem them, but she was very honest in telling me, "those pant legs have a little too much material for you", and she took them in somewhat. SO glad she did, pants are perfect now. Very nice person and Great service! A+Audra LeMasterAudra LeMaster ★★★★★ Dorita is so knowledgeable and does a wonderful job 🙂 everything is completed in a timely and accurate manner. She is so friendly and welcoming as well!Jared HummelJared Hummel ★★★★★ I recently attended a wedding here locally in Evansville and unfortunately, I needed my pants hemmed on a last minute notice. Thankfully, Dorita was able to bail me out. Honestly, I can't recommend her work enough. Not only was she able to fit me in and work around her busy schedule, but she created the perfect pair of pants. I didn't have a single issue all night and never even had to worry! I will definitely be recommending her to all my friends and family!Duy LeDuy Le ★★★★★ I recently moved to Evansville, Indiana and needed a tailor since flying back to Costa Mesa, CA to get my clothes altered isn't always an option (joking). I was born with many blessings, but a bubble-butt isn't one of those gifts, so tailoring is essential.Southern Indiana winter for a Southern Californian means new clothes. I bought a pair of heavy wool pants on eBay that were a little tight in the waist and had a pair of vintage wool pants that belonged to my stepfather that were easily three sizes too big (long and baggy). Both needed alterations.Garden View Creations wasn't my first choice because the pictures made me think they specialized in wedding gowns and bridesmaids dresses and I've had men's pants turned into ladies capris by such specialists, but the other tailor I called never responded, so I gave them a call.I am so happy that I met Dorita, the owner of Garden View Creations! She did an amazing job altering the eBay pants and completely transformed my step father's pants to make them fit me. Dorita has an excellent eye, and more importantly, an excellent ear. Everyone has a different sense of style and hearing what a client wants is paramount for tailoring.I'm so happy with Dorita's work that I dropped off another pair of pants and will bring her any new clothes I buy while I live in the area.Thank you, Dorita!PS, my mom loves that I'm able to wear her husband's pants. It means a lot to both of us!Anna HayesAnna Hayes ★★★★★ I needed some minor alterations on my wedding dress for my wedding that was about 2 weeks away at the time. I called Dorita and she was able to get me in the next day. She got my dress done in less than a week and charged me a very reasonable price. She was so welcoming, friendly, and caring, making sure I had the dress the way I wanted it and that I was happy with it at pickup. She has a great studio with ample parking that also has a ramp to get in if you need it. Overall, a great experience and I will recommend her and use her again in the future! Thank you Dorita!R GilesR Giles ★★★★★ I had to have a suit jacket altered last minute for my daughter's wedding and Dorita was able to get it done at a very reasonable price and she did an awesome job.Jennifer HaydenJennifer Hayden ★★★★★ Dorita was outstanding from start to finish! I needed my mother-of-the-bride dress altered very quickly and she was able to get me in right away! She did a fantastic job on my dress. I will recommend her to anyone needing a seamstress! I cannot say enough good things about my whole experience with her!!Matthew WalkerMatthew Walker ★★★★★ Had a service done by Dorita and it was excellent. Things went very smoothly and she was wonderful to work with. I will definitely recommend her to others and use her again myself.Sarah Smith BarnumSarah Smith Barnum ★★★★★ Dorita has been my seamstress now for multiple dresses and alterations for almost two years now, and she is amazing to work with! Not only is she friendly, fair-priced, and great at what she does, but she's great at making time to fit you in if you're in a pinch. Highly recommend!jodi cantnerjodi cantner ★★★★★ Everything I have alterations on were perfect, two of the items were new still had tags on them, I was amazed you couldn't tell they had been altered. Professional, nice, goes above and beyond to make sure you are happy. I highly recommend Graden View Creations. You won't be sorry.Julie RizenJulie Rizen ★★★★★ I had two uniform shirts that I needed patches replaced on due to a promotion. Everyone I called was booked out for weeks. One of the places I called recommended I call Gardenview Creations. Thank goodness I did . Dorita made time as busy as she was for me so that I could have my shirts for the weekend. She had me in and out in less than an hour. I so appreciated her kindness and willingness to work me on on such short notice. I will definitely be using her again and will recommend to anyone and everyone!Teresa BreakeyTeresa Breakey ★★★★★ I highly recommend garden view creations. I've had special pillows and memory bears and other sewing need done. Dorita is the seamstress and her quality of work is high quality. She is kind and creative and talented. So happy we found garden view creations.CinchbytheInch PBRCinchbytheInch PBR ★★★★★ I first learned of Garden View Creations when clothing alterations and repairs were needed. The quality of the work was outstanding and I found the price and time to complete very reasonable. Since that time, I've used Garden View for custom sewing. While I had a general idea of what I wanted, Dorita was able to expand the vision and create the loveliest memory pillows which the family love and cherish. I'm thrilled to have found such a talented seamstress in this area!js_loader

"Folks if anyone is in need of any kind of alterations I highly recommend Dorita…she completely remade a denim jacket because we couldn’t find one small enough for our granddaughter, and it was a fantastic job, she has done numerous alterations for me and my husband and I have been completely satisfied…she is such a wonderful lady."

Tehani B.

"I admire Dorita and her attention to details, with all her creative sewing pieces. She has made several pillows for me, totes, and storage items. But the dearest 2 pieces were quilts. The first one was made for my Mother, out of my father’s ties. You can imagine the warmth that gave her. The next quilt was made for my sister, out of my Mother’s handkerchiefs. It also was such a wonderful memory for my sister. Dorita is compassionate about her work, in whatever area she is doing it. There isn’t a person I would trust more with my sewing needs."

Dolly L.

"I have had the privilege of knowing and working with Dorita for close to 15 years.  She has done so many wonderful things for me... from simple repairs to custom patio chair cushions, specialty pillows, custom pads for cedar chests and much more. Most memorably, I went to her with a bag of my Dad's clothes who had recently passed and asked her if we could create something special for his family to remember him.  She did not disappoint! She made purses, make up bags, earrings and pillows - all constructed with so much love and detail. They  best gifts received at our first Christmas without my Dad.  Her professionalism along with her kindness and ability keeps me coming back for any and all things that need repaired or created!  She is absolutely the BEST and I would highly recommend her for any and all alterations and more!"

Cathy C.

"I highly recommended Garden View Creations.  I reached out about altering some clothes after a recent weight loss.  Dorita exceeded my expectations.  She was able to alter some of my favorites that I didn’t think I would be able to wear again! She did a fantastic job and the turnaround time was less than expected. I will definitely refer family and friends!"
