I found "the one". But there is a catch. The dress has a sweetheart neckline with a lace halter strap attached. When trying on the dress the halter straps of the dress were hanging down because they were zipping up the back, that is when I looked into the mirror and had the "this is the one" moment. Then they buttoned the lace halter portion of the dress and I didn’t like the halter at all and it was itchy. I ended up tucking in the lace halter and loving the sweetheart neckline on this dress.
The dress shop called the manufacturer and they won’t modify the neckline and remove the halter before they ship however the shop seamstress is confident she can handle the modifications when the dress arrives. The seamstress has been in the business for many years and makes wedding dresses from scratch as well. The sweetheart neckline will have be closed up a little as the neckline plunged a litte too much for my liking. They are going to order the extra fabric from the designer to make the alternations.
Has anyone ever had a halter altered to a sweetheart neckline? Any thoughts or recommednations would be much appreciated. thank you!
