oh, it's gorgeous.

Is it just me, though, or is the sheer fabric at the center bottom of the neckline fraying up from the seam a bit? Your neckline detail shows it best. I'd just want to check this first, because I had a dress with a similar issue just fall to pieces along a seam like that. Even fray-checked.

Hi Fleur -

Ah. Thanks for pointing this out. I hadn't noticed from amongst the unfinished seams! I am sure this can be resolved by someone with an adept hand (and a sewing machine.) I'll be sure to amend the listing and price requested to reflect this!

yeah, it's such a shame. Well, it's a gorgeous dress, and I might still go in for it after you alter the price - unfortunately, I'm on a grad school budget for another 4 years or so, so I have to weigh cost against risk of replacing the neckline. Still, it's a killer dress, I would be very happy to have this to wear in the fall, so I'll keep an eye on it!

Tien-Ann said...

I've adjusted the asking price. I think you should be able to hand stitch the fray to fix it. I hope so!

fleur_delicious said...

thanks, Tien-Ann! At $20, I think I can risk having to redo the neckline if it fails on me. Would you count me in for this one?
