Client Testimonials

I am so glad I went here and nowhere else

This was the second place I went to after walking out of a different shop when I didn’t feel comfortable. Here I was greeted by friendly and extremely knowledgeable staff. My wedding dress is very intricate due to complex lace, yet all the alterations needed are nearly invisible! I also received a generous military discount that was so appreciated, as the overall cost was expensive, almost $400. Yet I am so glad I went here and nowhere else. What’s the point in having a beautiful dress if you don’t pay for it to fit you? Thanks again ladies!

THE TRANSFORMATION WAS AMAZING

I could not imagine my wedding day without the beautiful dress that Lora designed for me, she took my mother’s dress and turned it into my something new! The transformation was amazing but having her glowing personality at each fitting was even more amazing, it was like she was a part of the family and took so much delight in creating our custom piece!

Show stopping dress
I came in with a picture of a dress that had the style I wanted, but I wanted the colors changed, I literally had no idea how the custom dress process worked. Lora took my idea and vague directions and made the most amazing dress I could ever have imagined. She was so much fun to work with and I was actually a little sad the day I picked up my dress because I wouldn’t be seeing her anymore. Everyone was completely blown away by my dress, it fit me perfectly and was completely jaw dropping. If you need a dress for any occasion, go see her!

I would recommend her to anyone

Lora is amazing! She completely reconstructed the size 8 wedding gown I had purchased to fit a size 0. She listened to every request and gave me undivided attention whenever I was at her shop.

LORA DOES OUTSTANDING WORK

I took my wedding gown to her for alterations. It was too big and I was worried the top wouldn’t fit correctly – I don’t know why I worried at all with her altering my dress, I swear she makes miracles happen! My dress fit me so well when she was done with it! VanLear is where I will be sending all my friends who are looking for alterations or a custom dress!
