Torn between two dresses... Help! *decision post #63

The Maggie Sottero-Carrie dress
I was really concerned about wearing a strapless dress because I have a 3rd degree burn on my chest that I donâ€™t like to show. I was concerned about it showing in pictures. I tried on another dress that had a high neck and would cover my scar. It was a beautiful dress in person, a Mori Lee design, but not as flattering as the Maggie Sottero.

I was really considering getting the Mori Lee dress so I wouldnâ€™t have to worry about covering my burn. Well, I finally found a scar makeup (Dermablend) that covers my scar pretty well and doesnâ€™t smudge easily. However, the raised outline of my burn on the left side is still visible even with the makeup.
So, the bridal shop is going to make some modifications to the Maggie Sottero dress for me when it comes in. They are going to add an asymmetrical one-shoulder strap (over the left shoulder) by piecing together some lace straps (probably 3 to 4). Apparently, they can order the straps from the designer. Below are pictures of the type of straps they will be using and the type of asymmetrical shape I am going for.

The dress won't arrive until the second week in January. The modifications probably won't be done until the end of February or beginning of March, so it will be a while before Iâ€™ll be able to show you the finished product. I canâ€™t wait!

Sooooooo glad to hear you chose the Maggie -- it's looked absolutely breathtaking on you, and I just know the shoulder stap will turn out beautifully....
Can't wait until we get to see more after the 1st of the year!

The Moonlight looks absolutely gorgeous in person, but it does not photograph as well as the Maggie. I'm attaching pictures of me in the dresses and pictures of models in the dresses. Both dresses I tried on were too small, but that is what they had in the store. This is also why there are no back photos of me in the dresses. In the moonlight dress, the lady that was helping me had to hold the dress in the back while my mom took the picture! Let me know which dress you like best. Thanks a bunch!
