I think a seamstress could work some magic with that. If you haven’t hemmed it already you could hopefully raise up the waist line and then bring together the pieces around the chest.

I think you could work with it, but what about just putting a little insert where the cleavage would be?  A little lace or something could make it more modest.

how about a little lace panel or something?? i would think a seamstress could take apart the top and put it together to be less revealing 🙂

I think that if you find a good seamstress, it could totally be done.

I’m sure a seamstress could remake the entire top, but it would cost quite a lot. If you were to keep the top, the other possibility would be to add an extra couple of inches of trim to the edges of it. The place where the new fabric joins the existing top could either be a feature, like the top edge on this dress:

…or it could be cleverly disguised with some ruching or draping (every second dress has some sort of ruching at the moment anyway!)

Does anyone know about how much Amsale dresses retail for? Trying to figure out my budget and don’t want to get excited about a dress I may not be able to afford.

I don’t think there’s too much boobage there, but obviously you have to be comfortable with it. Even if you can get the seamstress to give a little more coverage it might be comfortable. The other thing I am thinking is you might look more covered if the straps were a little thicker.

I think its beautiful on you though!

@alemurray: they start at about $5,000 – $6,000 and go up from there…the more elaborate ones are more like $7,000 to $8,000. The Christos line, also designed by Amsale, is less…starting at about $3,700…
