Major Dress Alterations!

I had some major alterations done to the top of my dress!! I liked my dress but didn’t really like the illusion neckline. It didn’t feel flattering on me and the way the sleeves were, I literally couldn’t lift my arms (a problem since my FH is a foot taller than me!) I was to the point where I was considering getting a new dress, which I hated bc my grandma found this dress for me and other than the neckline it was perfect. So I had several alteration appointments and this is the result! I love it. It feels more open and free and summery. I love the details of the way it’s cut out now, too. And now it’s unique and no one else has a dress exactly like mine. 😊
Anyways just wanted to share and say if you’re having any dress doubts, sometimes a few alterations are all you need to make it your own and love it again.😊❤️

    Okay so this is insane! My name is Angela and that is the exact dress I chose for my wedding too! Well, I didn’t make the alterations you did, which look AMAZING btw, but what a crazy small world?!! Hahaha. When are you getting married? Isn’t this dress amazing and super flattering? I love how easy it is to get in and out of too! Congratulations, gorgeous!

    It looks great! I think the neckline now is much more flattering on you. I can see how the "before" top would be constricting. Your seamstress did an amazing job!

    Ooooh, I love what you did with the neckline! It is definitely more summery and I think it’s more flattering. The illusion was a bit much and a bit stuffy but now it’s light and airy!
