Sorry, but yet another post about alterations from me! There are so many choices and I feel so overwhelmed at times. I am slowly getting more of an idea about what I want to do with my dress but one of my friends threw a spanner in the works last night by making yet another suggestion. I am not sure if it is even possible but she suggested I go for slightly thicker straps but make the straps removeable so I can go strapless if I want. Does anyone know if this is possible? I am leaning towards straps that are narrow at the bottom and get slightly thicker on the shoulder and then narrow again where it joins at the back. I would add a few beads to the straps as the bodice of my dress has beads on it. Should I go for a dress that has removeable straps? I am not sure which looks better in photos. I have fairly broad shoulders so am not sure if straps are better or strapless (but sweetheart/v-neck neckline). I am making the back laceup as it has a zip at the moment which doesn’t do up… and the frill in the front is going to be removed.
This is my dress at the moment:
I want to change the neckline to this:
Should I go for strapless- like this:
or straps like this (with the neckline from photo 1):
Please excuse the very lenghthly post….
