    The first one is beautiful. I think with the alterations you mention though, the second one would look amazing. The first is lovely, but very “typical” right now, not that that’s bad! I just think the second one screams quality.

    I adore silk satin dresses but because you’re talking about a complete overhaul in the Dress #2’s construction, I don’t think its the dress for you.  I suggest you keep looking- there’s definitely beautiful satin fit and flare/trumpet gowns with lace detail out there.

    Both dresses are beautiful. What really stands out to me is that the changes you want to make to the Jim Hjelm gown would not only be outrageously, insanely expensive (I was engaged the first time more than 20 years ago, and one, small, single, additional Alencon-lace applique to be added to the neckline of my gown was $50! I think you would easily add more than $2,000 to $3,000 the price of the gown) but also would not even work due to the ruching on that gown.

    I’m the minority but love the second dress…. But I’d have to see it on to know for sure!

    I think if the 2nd dress would need all the alterations you mention, it’s not the dress for you! If you think you’d like the 2nd one (as reimagined) more than #1, I think you should keep looking. 🙂

    Id keep looking for a satin dress with lace that you don’t need to change 🙂
