THE TRANSFORMATION WAS AMAZING

I could not imagine my wedding day without the beautiful dress that Lora designed for me, she took my mother’s dress and turned it into my something new! The transformation was amazing but having her glowing personality at each fitting was even more amazing, it was like she was a part of the family and took so much delight in creating our custom piece!

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.

LORA DOES OUTSTANDING WORK

I took my wedding gown to her for alterations. It was too big and I was worried the top wouldn’t fit correctly – I don’t know why I worried at all with her altering my dress, I swear she makes miracles happen! My dress fit me so well when she was done with it! VanLear is where I will be sending all my friends who are looking for alterations or a custom dress!

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.

I would recommend her to anyone

Lora is amazing! She completely reconstructed the size 8 wedding gown I had purchased to fit a size 0. She listened to every request and gave me undivided attention whenever I was at her shop.
