My mom''s friend gets all her clothes tailored by a lady who used to do Chanel and all the high end stuff at Nordstrom. She''s amazing, she doesn''t even use a measuring tape. She just looks at you in the garment and knows where to fix it.
I have no doubt in her ability and plan on taking my dress to her for alterations.

So the friend talked to the seamstress and thought that maybe I should add beading to the bodice. I''m having the neckline sweetheart-ed and foregoing a necklace because I have too much other stuff going on. I don''t know whether I want it beaded. I kinda feel like it might take away from the vintagey look. What do you think?



...I need a new picture of me in the dress...where my skin doesn''t blend into the top of it...LOL

Totally agree. I would not add beading, unless you were doing it minimally over the entire dress. Personally, I don't like beading on the bodice of a dress that doesn't have a definite separation at the waist, it just takes away from the cohesive look of the dress.

ETA: Your dress is absolutely gorgeous!! Please don't do a thing!! (other than the sweetheart neckline of course
)

Mer, I''m with ya. I''m not a bead hater, but I wouldn''t pick it necessarily.

Thanks girls.

Ditto the others - it doesn''t need beading or anything else, it is beautiful as-is.

I agree with everyone else - no beads! Maybe you can wear a beaded necklace?

I agree with the rest. Beading the bodice would be too much. It is beautiful as it is.

No no no..please dont! I LOVE your dress as is (except, ofcourse, for the addition of the sweetheart neck which I think would look fantastic!). Sunnyd, you are such a beaut!

I wouldn''t add beading as I think it would change the whole feel of the dress and I like it just the way it is!
