So I found this dress online that I love but the neckline is too low. Has anyone made an alteration where it’s changed like into a sweetheart neckline or make it so it’s not as deep of a neckline. If so, what’s approximate pricing? Wedding dress neck line alteration 1

    My dress originally had a fairly deep sweetheart/v, it showed more than I liked. I had a modesty panel put in, which changed the neckine into more of a “slight curve.” Cost was $60...this was at DB. I bought the piece from them and they put it in.

    I agree with pp that it can be done, but because the fabric of the dress you're considering looks to be very plain/solid, I think it will definitely be pretty noticeable that it's been altered to look differently. (Even if the seamstress is able to cut excess fabric from the hem or train to use, it will likely be quite obvious that it's been pieced into the bodice.) While it's noticeable in the photos posted by pp of her dress that was altered, her bodice has lace already, so it blends quite well. I think with the solid fabric it will be much more noticeable. I'd probably keep looking for a dress similar to this, but with the neckline you'd prefer.

    Oops forgot to add pricing: it cost about 100 to put it in because it was a more complicated alteration
