GORGEOUS dress!~ Also not sold on the sash though 😀 Perhaps something else to nip in the waist? Or just GREAT alterations.

Love that dress! I agree, subbing the ties for hook and eye closures will put the focus back on that ammmmmaaaazzzzziiiinnnngggg dress.

Gorgeous! I think you are spot on with your plans to make both of the bows into hook and eye closures; It will really let the simplicity of the dress shine. Love it!!

@franklyn:  Wow the dress is gorgeous!  I love the sleeves, and the material looks amazing.  Great idea about removing the tie at the back.

What a gorgeous dress! I would remove the tie at the back as well!

@franklyn:  LOVE THAT DRESS! It’s actually one of my dream dresses and it’s so nice to see it on a real person.

Depending on how good your alterations will be, consider having jewels/beads sewn right onto the waistline for an illusion belt instead of a sash. I think once the top strings are converted to a hook&eye, the dress may actually look lovely with a dainty sash, but just a different one than what the dress comes with.

Please keep us posted with your dress journey!

franklyn ok so I know you mentioned a belt but what if you got it altered to fit snuggly around the waist and then added a jeweled collar, not like a shirt collared but adding jewels around the neck to look like a statement necklace?  Beautiful dress by the way!

It’s BEAUTIFUL! I love J.crew wedding (I’m a J.crew bride too!). You’re lucky– the fabric looks like it will be easily taken in by a seamstress.

@franklyn:  I have the Dauphine gown from one of their recent collections. I agree, j.crew has excellent customer service. My bridesmaids are all wearing j.crew as well and the reps there have been nothing but helpful.
