Client Testimonials

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!

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!

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!

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!
