    Honestly I don’t love either of them. I just went and looked at your previous post, and think your dress would look much nicer if/when you change the neckline. It’s too restructuve, and looks frumpy, but might look better if you open it out more.

    I like BOTH new dresses, perhaps #1 a little more.

    I’m loving the first option; although, I don’t think you could go wrong with either! I understand that the dress from yesterday’s post is sentimental; however, it ages you a little, IMO, if I’m honest.

    beyoutiful61 :  

    Do you think it ages her ? I thought the exact opposite, ie  that the remodelled ‘vintage’ dress is more like a little girls dress.

    idk OP , I can see you wanting to wear  the remodelled dress for sentiment but I don’t know that it really works, I’m sorry  . The two new dresses are nice, the secondone especially.

    gwenchilada :  You look stunning in the first dress. The vintage dress remake idea, is def a neat idea and very brave to try. I have to agree with the other bees though, It doesn’t seem to work. I feel like it looks like dress up clothes more than a wedding dress. Like I said, you looked stunning in the first dress for back up. Regardless of my opinion or anyone elses, do what makes you happy and what you would like to look back on and see yourself in with pictures. That’s all that should really matter. Good luck.

    Of the three I like the first one best.

    I love vintage clothing but I kind of hate that vintage dress, it looks like a cheap halloween costume (i’m so sorry!) and makes you look about 12 years old.

    Dress #1…  Beautiful

    Make a hankerchief out of the vintage one or save it to make your first baby’s christening gown 🙂

    I’m pitching for the first one.  I’d read your original post about the dress, and then your follow-up about adding another layer of a light floating fabric over the skirt, and all I could think was “You’re changing the bodice, changing the neckline, putting on different sleeves, changing the waist, and covering the skirt – what’s the point of having the vintage dress in the first place?”  If you have to alter it to the point where it’s unrecognizable, it seems like it’s not the dress you want.  Get the dress you want!  And the first one looks great on you.

    That first dress is absolutely stunning on you and it has a vintage feel to me. It’s absolutely breathtaking, I’ve always loved that style of dress and it suits you so well.

    OH MY GOSH the first one!!  Either of these.. just not Grandma’s dress.  You can love your grandma to pieces but that dress looks like a Halloween costume I wore at age 11.  

    But dress 1 is STUNN-ING on you.  My eyes popped when I saw that pic.

    elderbee :  In my personal opinion, the remade dress does age her; however, I agree that OP should wear what makes her feel beautiful.
