Hi everyone. I recently ordered Cynthia by Maggie Sottero and I love it! I was just wondering if anyone else has this dress or if anyone has experience with neckline alterations? This dress is a v-neck and I think it’s a little too low. I was reassured they would be able to make it so the v was not as deep, but I’m nervous with all the beading. Any pictures of altered dresses or stories would be extremely helpful and reassuring! <br /><br />

amandap1023: I don’t have pictures, but I alter wedding gowns for a living and usually when someone wants the v-neck to not be so low, something called a “privacy panel” is put in. These are usually straight across, but you’ll need to specify that you want it to still be v-neck. In the case of this dress, the panel would need to be beaded as well, so you can’t see it. Otherwise I don’t think it would look good. If you’re ok with the beading being thicker than it is now, then you’ll be fine.
