I previously posted about my dress drama. Long story short I gained so much weight, couldn’t fit my dress and of course I had the most revealing dress ever that had my entire back! Not good for the back rolls I’ve developed. Was able to take it and get the whole back altered, they added a V shaped back which i actually love now that it’s finished. But it had this mesh that I wanted gone from day one, bridal shop assured it could be done, well after the fact they felt it was too risky and that the dress would loose it’s structure if they did it. Well today on my lunch i picked up my finished dress, went home and put on the dress, was in tears because this mesh isn’t working!! so yes i took the scissors and cut that bad boy and took a applique i had that im’ using for my veil and did a little test strap….what do you think ???
Dress fits perfectly, after cutting it did not change the fit! Only thing I realized was they didn’t steam the dress *rolls eyes* so day of won’t have those buldges. but overall i’m a lot more happy and actually feel pretty and not like a fat football player. wish i could diminish my arms some way, but can’t fix everything right away.
after before i place a piece of lace:

Oh my gosh bee, that was a risky move, but it paid off BIG TIME! I like it SO much more with your applique straps than with the illusion neckline it had before. Good work! Pretty awesome that you had a similar applique just hanging around the house. You look beautiful!

Wow, I love it! And the lace looks great on the straps. Great job! I would’ve been so nervous to do that to my dress, but you definitely did the right thing!
