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 am so glad I went here and nowhere else

This was the second place I went to after walking out of a different shop when I didn’t feel comfortable. Here I was greeted by friendly and extremely knowledgeable staff. My wedding dress is very intricate due to complex lace, yet all the alterations needed are nearly invisible! I also received a generous military discount that was so appreciated, as the overall cost was expensive, almost $400. Yet I am so glad I went here and nowhere else. What’s the point in having a beautiful dress if you don’t pay for it to fit you? Thanks again ladies!

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!

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!
