Would like to remove the illusion netting and possibly sew up to a sweetheart neckline, or add some lace in between to piece it together? Open to ideas. I’ve seen many pictures online and the mesh is SO noticeable. Thoughts? Definitely going to ask my seamstress too but I live out of state and my dress is being stored in wedding location state. Thanks!!

Either of those two options would look good , especially the first one , but would there be enough material to pull together that rather sizeable gap?
I do agree that the mesh is very obtrusive and detracts from the elegant and delicate lace.

Considering the cut (and size) of the gap, I don’t think sewing it together would be possible. I would opt for replacing the mesh with solid white fabric…I think it would be difficult to find lace that doesn’t clash or make the dress look too busy, though you could try giving that a shot too.
