I am in the middle of designing/piecing together a dress (for my FSIL) and thought I would ask for opinions.
We have decided to keep the back design of Naomi Neoh’s ‘Beatrix’ but aren’t 100% convinced on the front so are in the middle of deciding on a neckline/front design before taking the idea to a seamstress (be it here or overseas).
What kind of neckline do you think would suit the dress?
1. Keep it as is? (See Above)
2. Lace Illusion neckline with cap sleeves? (See Below)
3. Simple Bateau Neckline
4. Something Else- I’ll explain below?

I prefer it as it is, however if you want to change it I think option 2 is second best

Keep it as it is. I adore this dress. There’s a peek of lace in the bust so it carries thru the back.

I think you should nix option 2, the illusion back is enough but 2 illusion pieces feels like too much of a good thing.
Both of the other options are equally stunning but are suited to different body types. I’m a bit chesty and cowl necks usually make me feel like I’m showing too much cleavage, while bateau necklines are very flattering. Has she tried on both types? I feel like as soon as she does there will be a clear winner.

If she’s busty, the original design won’t be flattering. If this is the case, #2 would be very flattering but you should keep the lace on the sleeves instead of fabric sleeves. If she’s not busty, I like the original design the best.

IMO, there is such a thing as too much lace. The illusion back with the cowl front is beautiful. I’d leave it as-is.
