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!

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.

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!!

Turned my dreams into a reality!

Lora created the wedding dress of my dreams and for that I am forever grateful. Lora was so kind and professional. I loved each and every one of our fittings; such a fun experience to look forward too. She turned my dreams into a reality! If you need ANY work done on clothing or want to make something custom and unique hands down go see Lora at Van Lear! You won’t be disappointed, I sure wasn’t!

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.
