The Dress

This lovely bohemian dress was originally bought off of the BHLDN website. They describe it as...

"This understated column gown is fashioned entirely from intricate floral lace. An illusion bodice and plunging back (which features a sheer keyhole detail) brings a modern edge while a slight train finishes the look."

I added to the dress by leaving the lace floor length and hemming the under (ivory) layer roughly 6 inches above the knee (see alterations notes). The dress is a stretchy lightweight material, that is sure to keep you on the dance floor all night, rather than needing a different dress to take you from ceremony to reception. While the pictures don't quite do the lace justice, the lace does have a small sheen to it, making it look even more beautiful in person. I am quite tall (5'11''), but I found the length to be just perfect for my look with the boots. The slight train in the back was just past floor length.

Alterations

Alterations were made primarily to the sheer neckline and shoulders. The sheer fabric was way too tight along the neck and in the armpit region, causing redness in the skin if worn for more than 5 minutes. The neckline was dropped to more of a scoop (minor) and there was more room made in the armholes so that it was not as constricting. MY favorite alteration to this dress was that I had the layer under the lace hemmed to about 6 inches above the knee. This really makes the dress more fun and flirty, while keeping it classy.
