Client Testimonials

Thank you for making the perfect wedding dress!!

Lora is amazing!! She turned a wedding dress I liked into one I absolutely loved. She recreated the neckline and added some beautiful custom beading. I’d highly recommend her and would certainly use her again. Thank you Lora for making the perfect wedding dress!!

Truly a one of a kind dress!

I took my wedding dress to Van Lear to get alterations and could not be happier with the special touches Lora was able to add, now I truly have a one of a kind dress!! I am so excited to wear such a beautiful, custom dress on my big day! Lora listened, had great input and was so nice to work with

I could not have imagined a more beautiful dress

Lora is amazing! I could not have imagined a more beautiful dress if I tried. She brought my dream dress to life! She was very easy to work with and made everything so easy for me. From the first moment I walked into her shop to design the dress, to the last fitting and finally taking the dress home, Lora was incredible. I wanted to add on lace sleeves to my dress about three months before the wedding and she made that happen without hesitation. I could not say enough great things about her. Designing a dress with Lora was one of the best decisions I made about the wedding!!!

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!

As good as it gets!!
I was referred to Van Lear from Louise Christine Bridal in Oakwood. And of course Lora did not disappoint. She knew exactly what to do. The dress of my dreams had to be taken in quite a bit. But she made it perfect! Attached my belt and sleeves. It all turned out perfect. Lora knows exactly what to do. So glad I went the extra couple of hours away from home to trust her with something so special. Our day was perfect~ Thank You!
