Gosh, I don’t know much about this, but I just wanted to tell you that this dress is so beautiful and very “Mad Men”! 😀  Honestly, I would take it to a seamstress, and think that it would be worth every penny to get that done properly…but that’s just me.

I have a guess that if there is a way to get at the lace from the inside, detaching it from the inner part of the dress, the way it’s seamed/pleated(?) up to the bust could be changed. But unless you’re pretty confident in your sewing skills, it sounds like a job for a seamstress. Don’t many seamstresses do at least the initial consultation for free? It’s just such a gorgeous dress that the idea of DIYing an alteration on it makes me nervous, personally.

i agree with the pp… if you are confident in your sewing abilities, you should be able to fix the points by altering the pleat lines and making a little bit more of a french seam instead… if you aren’t confident, get a seamstress to do it- shouldn’t be too expensive IMO.

Are you 100% sure you want to do this? I would have never noticed the point! The thing is, that problem simply isn’t that noticable and there is a very real chance something could go very wrong with the alteration. I personally think the dress looks GORGEOUS the way it is. Are you really willing to gamble with this gown to fix such a tiny problem that nobody other than you will notice? (I opted not to fix a similar problem my gown had!)

I think the pointy boobs have to go, the corset back would be cute if you really want to do that.
