    Mein erstes Kleid ist einfach ein Traum! Perfekte Verarbeitung und Passform, ich bin wirklich voll begeistert. Stoff ist auch sehr weich und angenehm zum Tragen, und auch die liebevolle Verpackung hat mich fasziniert. Vielen herzlichen Dank! Ich freue mich auf weitere Modelle :-)

    I can only imagine how much time it takes to hand-stitch hems! It’s magical- I am a supporter of many small businesses and have barely seen so much authenticity in the making of vintage inspired clothing. That Fran is creating her own patterns and not just using existing vintage patterns is amazing! thank you for two wonderful dresses that won’t be alone as I am surely order again soon. It’s worth the wait! Thank you so much, Fran!

    Beyond Beautiful! The making is of highest quality and I have never seen a new garment looking that vintage! Stunning details- especially overwhelmed by the hand-stitching! Just wow!

    Who ever thinks that Franziskas designs are expensive - order something and you will see the difference! Handstitched hems and Details, the fit and the beautiful designs that are not just the copy/reproduction of a vintage pattern but own developed patterns - all of this makes every piece so special and worth every dollar. Import fees to America are always due ( I am Spanish but live in NY) but this is simply something no one can influence when ordering items abroad. But still - I highly recommend Fran and her beautiful label Prettie Lanes and I am sure she will be a very famous designer in the future!
    Love, Miranda

    If you are looking for an absolute well-made dress, that fits perfectly and looks like straight out of the 50s - Fran is the designer to go to. She is the sweetest! I love the way, she incorporates handstitching and authentic materials in her designs and can only imagine how much time is needed to complete one of her masterpieces! It's an upper price level but compared to big brands that produce for the mass market and in Asia and also sell for $200-250,- , it is definitely worth every single Cent. I can absolutely feel the difference.
    Thank you, Franziska, for two wonderful dresses that will not be my last Prettie Lanes dresses for sure!

    Von Hand genähte Säume! Ich konnte es kaum fassen! Heutzutage eigentlich nicht mehr auffindbar- das dachte ich zumindest bis ich dieses tolle Label fand. Unfassbar tolle Qualität, gepaart mit tollen Schnitten und ganz wunderbaren Materialien. Kleid sitzt, wie angegossen- DANKE!!

    Vielen Dank für zwei traumhafte Kleider, die wie angegossen passen! Ich bin überglücklich und fühle mich pudelwohl.
    Traumhafte Designs, die aussehen, als wären sie vintage aber in meiner Grösse! Hervorragend :)

    Fantastic - is all I can say! It feels so special to have something made in my size as I usually struggle finding the right dresses and true vintage is usually too small for me (I am a plus size). Thanks to Fran, I found someone who is designing clothing that is so close to true vintage- not only in the design but also the make. Can only recommend! Also because Fran is just the sweetest and so helpful at all stages of the ordering process!
    THANK YOU, Clara, Spain

    It's definitely worth the waiting and money to get something very special. Thank you so much, Fran for your wonderful designs and super kind customer service!
    Sunny greetings from Spain!

    Bin hin und weg von meinen drei neuen Kleidern und meinem Cardigan....allesamt ein Traum. Passen perfekt, das Design und die Verarbeitung sind wirklich umwerfend. Man kann die Liebe förmlich sehen, die in diese Kleider gesteckt wurde. Freue mich schon auf viele weitere Traumkleider!

    I am usually ordering from family owned companies, newcomer designers and tailors only to support small and young companies. I was super glad when I discovered Fran and her brand. She is the sweetest and the design and make of her garments are exceptional. I do not know any other brand in the market that can make clothing by creating new designs and make them look so authentic vintage. Fabulous brand and a wonderful and kind owner. Thank you, Fran! Best wishes from the US.

    With a very curvy body, I am super glad to have found this lovely label. Fran was always there to answer any question I had and I felt absolutely comfortable with her customer service. The package arrived in time for my event, including the most beautiful packaging and dress! I am in love and looking forward to many more orders and so well fitted dresses. Thank you so much, Fran!

    Caroline (Sunday, 03 September 2017 16:59)

    The beautiful make of the garments is exceptional. I don't know any other retro brand that is comparable to the authentic designs Fran is creating! Especially, love the fact that she does not use vintage patterns but creates her own, genuine patterns & designs, which is very rare when having a look at all the brands out there in the vintage segment that usually simply copy/resew old designs. THANK YOU, Fran for making the vintage world more beautiful! Best wishes from your long-term customer, Caroline <3

    I ordered only once so far but I am saving already for the next order! Fran's designs are beyond beautiful and worth every single Cent. In particular, the design, make and that everything is limited edition and not mass produced is wonderful and makes every piece so special. Thank you Fran!

    Apart from Franzi being a lovely person, her creations are of the most exquisite quality and design. I have yet to see a contemporary fashion designer, who is as true to the style of the forties and fifties without just copying them.

    Dear Fran
    The love and passion you put into every single piece of your collection is overwhelming. I do not know of any brand that is able to create such authenticity in design and the making, while not simply using a vintage pattern and copying designs. You are a true talent! Thank you for making me feel back in time whenever I wear your dresses!
    Love, Maggie
