I could not be happier!

Lora currently has my dress and so far I could not be happier!! She is so sweet and helpful. Very quick responses to all emails and calls, stayed opened late for me! Awesome! Couldn’t imagine going anywhere else!!

Amazing job!

I am in love with my custom mother of the bride gown. Lora did an amazing job creating exactly what I wanted. the hand beading was simply beautiful and just enough sparkle.

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.

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!!!

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!
