    I don’t think you can do it with that dress!!! It’s far too intricate. It’s blingy and pretty and me likey though =]

    Talk to the seamstress.  If she can do it, I think it would be a great change.  I think the sweetheart neckline has a more positive impact on the dress than the large beaded design that might have to be removed.

    I think they can do it, its just a matter of pulling it in at the right place and placing a few tacks where the sweetheart goes – it wouldn’t destroy the beading at all, maybe just squish it a little but, but probably wouldnt alter the design of the dress at all.

    I think it will ruin that beading in the middle to do a full sweetheart like you showed, but it looks like there is some space above the beading to where you may be able to make the top dip in the middle some to give the same effect without being a full sweetheart and without affecting the beading.

    I agree with ejs4y8, with that much beading I don’t think switching the neckline is a good idea

    Both versions of your dress look really beautiful. You could ask you seamstress, but I wouldn’t chance messing up the beading.

    It looks easy to me to just give it that small dip in the center without touching that beaded area. I think the slight modification might be all you’d need.

    I like it the way it is and I wouldn’t risk messing up the beading.  I think if you do go for it, make sure you really trust your seamstress, because I can see a lot of women saying “oh yeah, I can do that, not a problem!” and then getting in way over their heads and messing up the dress…

    I say do it, if it’s possible! I like how it balances the dress out…

    Your dress looks better as it is. If you try to get the neckline changed, you may have to pay extra because of the decoration that is already there and putting it back in place.

    A sweatheart would look good, but I think that design is too intricate to take apart.
