Client Testimonials

Literal fairy godmother
I brought in a dress that was given to me from a friend who was married in the 80's. I wanted it redone in a style that suited me and once she sketched out my ideas I could hardly contain my excitement. I felt like a princess on my special day and I got SO many compliments on my dress. She really does amazing work!!! Worth every penny!!!

The dress fit like a dream.

Lora did a wonderful job. I brought her my dress after another seamstress accidentally made my dress WAY too small and Lora worked her magic. The dress fit like a dream. Thanks again, Lora!

I loved loved loved my wedding dress

I loved loved loved my wedding dress. I came to Van Lear Custom Couture with a vision and Lori blew me away with the final product. It was so much fun working with her to design and make the perfect dress for me on my wedding day. She helped turn this tomboy into a bride and I am forever grateful

She listens, She cares, and she’s fun to work with.

I will not take a formal dress anywhere else for alterations. Lora listens to what you want, and how you want your dress to fit. At other places (including David’s Bridal), you are treated like you are stupid, and THEY will tell YOU how YOUR dress should fit, even if it emphasizes every insecurity you have… garbage. Go to Van Lear. She listens, she cares, and she’s fun to work with.
