Client Testimonials

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!!

I loved loved loved my wedding dress

I loved loved loved my wedding dress. I came to Van Lear Custom Couture with a vision and Lori blew me away with the final product. It was so much fun working with her to design and make the perfect dress for me on my wedding day. She helped turn this tomboy into a bride and I am forever grateful

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!
