Beautiful gown.

It shouldn’t be that hard to change to a sweetheart neckline, if you go to an experienced seamstress. I can’t tell you how much it will cost because cost varies with location and experience.

I am partial to sweetheart necklines, so if it were me, I would change it to one.

I love sweetheart necklines and I love lace dresses. Ergo, I LOVE YOUR DRESS especially if it’s in a sweetheart neckline!! ๐Ÿ™‚ An experienced seamstress can do the job and in Cali it costs anywhere from $75 – $200 depending on what you want done. The easiest way is to pinch the middle front part and sew it together to mimic a sweetheart. Doing this is cheap and will give you a lightly defined sweetheart. Also, you won’t need to cut any fabric and can change back to non-sweetheart quickly if you change your mind. The second option is to actually cut the fabric and that will require precision and more work, especially since it it irreversible.

I think the sweetheart neckline would be very flattering on that dress. The lace and sweetheart lines together definately add a romantic touch.

I know I’m going against what others have said, but I like it better straight… I’ve seen a lot of dresses that have been altered to a sweetheart, and I’ve never been convinced that it was an improvement.
