Client Testimonials

They made my dreams come true!

I wanted a batman themed wedding dress and they went above and beyond. They listened to everything I wanted and made my dream dress. My wedding would not have been perfect without it.

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!!!

Thank you for making the perfect wedding dress!!

Lora is amazing!! She turned a wedding dress I liked into one I absolutely loved. She recreated the neckline and added some beautiful custom beading. I’d highly recommend her and would certainly use her again. Thank you Lora for making the perfect wedding dress!!

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!
