@GracieGirl11:  Definitely counts, you look beautiful! Was it difficult to alter? I love the style but I’m also a little worried that it could be complicated to alter the sleeves etc

I love all these illusion necklines! I never thought to try one on while dress shopping- i don’t think most of the boutique salons i went to even had any?

@HoyaTerpDC:  thanks! The dress itself was simple to alter, but the neckline was not. I wanted it to be wider like in the stock photo (though I think the model must not have it fastened in the back, which is why her neckline appears more open – see below!), but doing so would have compromised and condensed the lace pattern, so I chose not to. Also, I had the underside of the sleeves altered slightly to allow for more movement, and that was an easy alteration. What alterations would you be worried about?

@GracieGirl11:  What designer/model is your dress? It is just the loveliest thing!

 

I love all the sleeves in this thread ladies. No hitching up our tops!

Here are the front and back stock photos of the dress I wore, except my illusion top was sleeveless rather than the off-the-shoulder style in the photo.  I loved wearing my dress and was so sad to take it off and put it away in a box!

@GracieGirl11:  Thanks for replying! I have realllly broad shoulders so I’m worried it would be difficult to get the correct fit up top with an illusion/lace neckline.  I won’t be dress shopping for a few more months, so for now I’m just trying to learn as much as I can about the different styles!
