Truly a one of a kind dress!

I took my wedding dress to Van Lear to get alterations and could not be happier with the special touches Lora was able to add, now I truly have a one of a kind dress!! I am so excited to wear such a beautiful, custom dress on my big day! Lora listened, had great input and was so nice to work with

Show stopping dress
I came in with a picture of a dress that had the style I wanted, but I wanted the colors changed, I literally had no idea how the custom dress process worked. Lora took my idea and vague directions and made the most amazing dress I could ever have imagined. She was so much fun to work with and I was actually a little sad the day I picked up my dress because I wouldn’t be seeing her anymore. Everyone was completely blown away by my dress, it fit me perfectly and was completely jaw dropping. If you need a dress for any occasion, go see her!

Lora does amazing work!

I would come to her for any special occasion dress, not just a wedding dress. She also does a wonderful job of altering clothes to fit her customers. I highly, highly recommend.

I could not have imagined a more beautiful dress

Lora is amazing! I could not have imagined a more beautiful dress if I tried. She brought my dream dress to life! She was very easy to work with and made everything so easy for me. From the first moment I walked into her shop to design the dress, to the last fitting and finally taking the dress home, Lora was incredible. I wanted to add on lace sleeves to my dress about three months before the wedding and she made that happen without hesitation. I could not say enough great things about her. Designing a dress with Lora was one of the best decisions I made about the wedding!!!

Amazing job!

I am in love with my custom mother of the bride gown. Lora did an amazing job creating exactly what I wanted. the hand beading was simply beautiful and just enough sparkle.
