Halterneck be gone

A dress that complements my hourglassfigure, and in a lovely fabric. Home you go with me, dress.
It is not a good before picture, but the piece at the breasts of the dress covered too little of my breasts. So you have to make do with this picture.
It was a halterneck dress, and it was about one size too large in the chest and waist areas.

I repositioned the straps, so they became ordinary straps. No halternecks for me, thank you.
I took the dress in a little at the chest and waist.
Lastly I removed the padding in the breast pieces (similar to what some bikinis have). And I made darts at each side to make the breast piece fit me better and cover my breasts up more.
A lacy camisole underneath makes the dress usable off the beach too

Summer party, here I come!
