Thank you! I actually wen with a happy medium... I left the lace intact but altered the underlayer to a modified sweetheart it will be similar to this, but the lace overlay won't come up as high. But I think it's a win win!
I think I'm having a minor meltdown (lol I'm dramatic).
I found my dress (Mori Lee 4968) this past Saturday and I am in love with it. But I really wanted a sweetheart neckline. My bridal consultant assured me that with alterations I can make a sweetheart neckline.
Here's the thing, I happened to be looking at the designer's website and stumbled across a very similar dress (Mori Lee 3124) with the sweetheart neckline I wanted. The other problem is that style only comes in plus size (which I am not).
So I was wondering if I would be able to request the designer to customize my dress to have the neckline that I want. I don't see it being a problem because they're both the same designer. I plan on calling them first thing Monday morning.
Are there any other brides out here that was able to have something done like that?
My Dress: Mori Lee 4968
The other style: Mori Lee 3142
Love this dress and it looks fantastic on you! Any good seamstress can make this alteration and should be pretty cost effective. The only two considerations that I would make is that if you alter it after production, you may only be able to achieve a modified sweetheart due to the rouching (sp?), I would just confirm this. Also, one advantage of having Mori Lee customize this for you, is that the bodice at the bust line has a the cross-over detail which couldnâ€™t be achieved in alterations. But the cost for Mori Lee to do this customization could be double if not triple and in all honesty not really necessary unless the details shown are a deal breaker for you.
