Can it be removed? Take it to a seamstress and see if this is possible, it may just be sewn over top of the ruching

@Omgbunnies:  though it’s sewn on there good, it looks like its laying on top of the fabric underneath, which is good! Take it to a seamstress and see what they say! Good luck and gorgeous dress!

@Omgbunnies: 

  • Have your seamstress cover it with matching tulle to help it blend 
  • or have her attach a matching satin strip on the other side (it would not only provide balance, it would also make your waist look even smaller)
  • or have her disassemble that part of the dress, remove it and sew matching tulle (likely the most costly option)

awwww. you have my dress! without the applique, of course. i agree with MlleFabuleux, a matching band might help “disguise” it (:

… it might be pretty to add another line of bling on that piece, it could look super cute and modern! Beautiful dress!!!

=/ look im sorry, but i feel i need to be honest.

 

i don’t think you should wear a strapless dress.

 

I know the satin line upsets you, and i know strapless dresses are in fashion atm, but to kill two birds, would you consider, a jacket or sleves?

 

also a wrap, worn loose over or below the shoulders down to the elbows would take away visually the issue of the satin line, taking away part of the attention.

I would remove the satin piece if possible. I think adding a matching insert on the side is also a good option, but I just don’t think it needs to be there at all!

yeah take it to a seamstress. I’m sure they can help you, and from the looks it shouldn’t cost too much.
