I think it’s pretty – but what did it look like before?

I think it’s pretty, but maybe the top looks a little casual compared to the skirt??

@AlliRae – i think you nailed it, I agree – maybe a sweetheart neckline? Cap sleeves, if sleeves are a must?

@7SEVENJ9: oo sweetheart with capped sleeves would be really beautiful. especially if the sleeves were the same material as the skirt.

i think this dress is actually very pretty – im in love with the skirt.

It’s beautiful! It reminds me of Emma Pillsbury’s dress on GLEE!

Congratulations!

Have you thought of adding a sparkly belt or something?

i love the skirt!  but i agree with a PP, we need to see the “before” shot to be able to give any kind of credible advice.  or some kind of description about what you were going for in the first place?  we can’t read your mind, hun.

I think it’s the shape that doesn’t match. Even with the nicer material, the top is the shape of a plain cotton tank top. What about necklines like these:

Sorry the one on the right is so grainy looking; I had to shrink the image. It’s just tulle/netting. I think that still gives you the high neckline and coverage but looks a little more modern.

I wanted to add that the shirt is gorgeous, though! And the shape is very flattering for your figure. I love the thought of buttons down the back, too!

I agree the top just really doesn’t flow with the bottom of your dress.  I like the pp with the pic of sleeves and belt

Can I ask why you need more coverage? Because if it’s a matter of personal modesty there may be some solutions that aren’t workable if it’s a religious belief or something along those lines. I don’t want to suggest something that won’t be helpful.

@7SEVENJ9: I really like the edited version that you posted.

 @loveispatient54: Can you post  a pic of how the dress used to look?
