Client Testimonials

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!

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!

Lora does amazing work!

I would come to her for any special occasion dress, not just a wedding dress. She also does a wonderful job of altering clothes to fit her customers. I highly, highly recommend.

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!

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!
