I think it’s probably really fixable. Do they have a seamstress in house at Kleinfeld (I’m assuming that’s a yes).  You might start there, since the seamstresses there would have experience working with lace, and also probably with the ML).  I wore a lace dress for my wedding, and I was amazed by how they "hem" the bottom of the dress (they take off the scallopy bit at the bottom, cut it to length, and then reattach the scallops- and you can’t even notice!) so I would suspect a fix at the top would be pretty straightforward- lace is really forgiving in that way!  Good luck!

I have a lace dress that needed some repairing.. Madame Paulette is doing all of my alterations and fixed the lace as well. Warning – they are expensive, but they did a great job.

I went to Lai’s Royal Tailoring to alter my all-lace gown. She is very good, fast, and affordable so I highly recommend you pay her a visit. She’s in Chinatown. <font color=”#008000″>laistailoring.com</font>
