Dyed and refashioned dress

I loved the pattern of this handknitted cotton dress, but it was pale yellow. Not a good colour for me. It was also 3 or 4 sizes too big.

So i dyed it brown with Dylon, too it in at the sides and shortened the sleeves. I love it now
(I am sorry for the crappy mirror selfie, my camera has died (R.I.P.)).

Its not quite done yet. I want to change the neckline and since the dress is handknitted, I would like to frog the neckline and knit a new one (inspired by Eddie).
But what neckline style/detail should I choose?

wow! What a great dress! It looks like it took the dye evenly too. I like it better in the darker shade too!

I'm not sure that pale yellow would look good on anyone. The warm brown is much better! I like the neck-line as is, but I think a v-neck could also look nice. Great job!
