    I’m a sucker for the sweetheart neckline, I’m altering my neckline for that 🙂

    I’m thinking of doing the same for my dress as well.  It’s just such a flattering neckline!

    I would love to see it as a sweetheart.  You can have the seamstress tack it so you can see what it would look like first if you are unsure.

    I have a very similar dress, and I am altering it to a sweetheart neckline as well!

    Please post pictures once it is done, I’d love to see it!

    My friend got married June 5th and this was her dress that she had altered to a sweetheart.  It looked fantastic!

    I think most of the time, a sweetherat neckline is more flattering. I think it would work well for you – right now the neckline seems a little high anyways and the sweetheart will fix that!

    I am also a fan of the sweetheart neckline, so if it were me, I would definately alter it to one. I just think that sweetheart necklines are much more flattering.

    I’m in the minority on this one, I think the straight line contrasts the sloping lines on the bottom of the dress in a really beautiful way.  I wouldn’t alter it.

    I voted sweetheart because I like the SH cut better in general, but really, until we see it with that dress, I’m not 100% sure… talk to a seamstress who can give you a better idea what would happen to the dress design if you altered it to a SH… some dresses simply can’t be altered that way because of this or that… I think a quality seamstress would be best to ask.
