Client Testimonials

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!

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!
