did you end up ordering this dress and making these alterations? If so, I would love to see it- I am in the exact same boat! I am hoping to make these changes but my dress doesn’t come in until late May.

jesseihg:  that’s the thing, i’m not sure what would look best- I’ve considerd just a simple straight strap, or off the shoulder, or even a keyhole back (though that would probably be too much). I love the overall body of the dress soooo much, so I ordered it, but I know myself and I’ll just feel a little too bare up top in something completely strapless- plus I think my figure needs some kind of strap to balance out my shape so it doesn’t look bottom heavy. I ordered the extra lace, so at this point I’m just praying that the seamstress will have a good idea about what to do. The girl at the dress shop told me they add straps all the time, though maybe that’s just something they say…

jesseihg:  and yes, that is the same dress! and I’m curious about how they managed that alteration, because it definitely looks like more of a sweetheart neckline than the regular dress, but the lace pattern doesn’t seem to be altered when you look at the close up pictures…

Lulu0403:  how fabulous you look!!! it’s beyond flattering  

And I love the sweetheart alteration- it’s not a huge change, but it’s a great effect. I assume this is the rosegold underlay?

Do you have any pictures from the front with the straps?! I’m so curious!!

Lulu0403:  I definitely want to add straps- I’m thinking a thinner strap, but I don’t know exactly what would look best yet. And I hadn’t even thought about the neckline, but now that I’ve seen different ladies’ pictures of the sweetheart alteration that all look so great I’m thinking of doing that too!
