Hello bees! I am thinking about adding swaravski crystals to my maggie anniston dress. Has anyone ever done this? If so, what shape should I use? Also, I am wanting to alter the dress into a full sweetheart neckline. Has anyone done this? If so, can you send pics so, I can get an idea?? Thank You

I am also thinking off adding swarovski crystals…but to my viel. I have some experience with working with the crystals. I added some to my wedding invites and found it fairly easy. First, go to your craft store and determine the size and shape of crystals you like, maybe buy a couple different types and just return the ones you dn’t need but I’d be careful not to buy a whole bunch at the craft store becase they are super expensive!…you may need to take them out and place them on your dress while it lays flat to get an idea of the size/shape of crystals you like. Once you decide which ones you like, I’d get the size, etc off the box and order them on ebay from China, they are MUHHCCCH cheaper and you can get a ton of them. I’d get the HotFix kind, and buy the tool used to heat the crystals and adhere them. It’s super easy to use, looks like a soldering iron/pen thing but it just heats the crystals enough so the glue on the bottome of them melts to the fabric.
I have not ever altered the neckline of a dress, but alot of bees on here have. I’d do a search on the boards to see if anyone posted before and afters.
