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.

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!

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.

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!!
