They made my dreams come true!

I wanted a batman themed wedding dress and they went above and beyond. They listened to everything I wanted and made my dream dress. My wedding would not have been perfect without it.

Easy to work with and does GREAT work

Lora is amazing! She took my mom’s wedding dress and changed it into something even more beautiful for me to wear at my wedding rehearsal held at the Dayton Art Institute. Being able to wear my mom’s wedding dress that day is a memory that I will always cherish. Lora is easy to work with and does GREAT work. Thanks again!

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

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!
