I’m so sorry bee, but if I’m honest the pure white on the underneath just makes the top look dirty! You need to get a refund because it’s not what you ordered!! I’m really sorry bee and I hope you come up with something ❤️

Agreed the ivory looks kind of yellow against the white dress. Any chance you can get someone local to do an urgent job for you on the lace top?

and get a refund on the top you had made.

But looking at your link I think the dress would look nice even without the lace.

 I may be totally off base here but i’ve dyed alot of fabrics before; is it possible to dye or bleach (with really dilute bleach) to whiten it? It would depend on the type of lace.. If it’s a cotton lace you should be good with a dilute bleach. If its not cotton you could try Rit White Out. Might not work but may be worth a try?

I agree I think the soft white lace looks a lot better. Sorry Bee!! Good luck 🍀

Sorry it doesn’t look good. I had issues at first getting my silk to match the lace.

Since the mistake was on her part I would expect her to rush your order and correct it or refund you all together. The soft white matches your dress perfectly.

 I can’t get the link to your dress to work – it just takes me to magic land Italy? I do agree with PP that the ivory looks way too dark/dirty against the dress. Does the dress need a cover up or is it for personal comfort? The woman who makes them should be coming up with a solution for you, I’d be contacting her to get something fixed NOW!

Sorry but I think the two colours look wrong together. Could the topper be slavaged by dying it a blush shade? I know that’s not the look you are after but I tend to feel that something completey different might look better than the dark ivory.

Sorry dear OP,  I have to  agree with all the others , the lace is  too dark for the dress, (infuriatingly,  as you knew it would be,  in ivory !) 

I do hope the  local person can make you a new one , and that you get a troublefree full  refund for the first, wrong one .
