Client Testimonials

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.

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!!!

Literal fairy godmother
I brought in a dress that was given to me from a friend who was married in the 80's. I wanted it redone in a style that suited me and once she sketched out my ideas I could hardly contain my excitement. I felt like a princess on my special day and I got SO many compliments on my dress. She really does amazing work!!! Worth every penny!!!
