I bought this dress because I absolutely loved the vintage print on this netting fabric, but knew I'd have to adjust the low neckline to be comfortable in it. Since we're all about modesty over here, I wanted to feature a tutorial that explains how you can raise a round neckline using ruffles.
The dress was tea-length with plenty of extra fabric at the bottom that I used for the ruffles, but if the fabric of your dress will unravel, you will need to finish off the edges. You could also use a coordinating color of fabric to make your ruffles if the length of your dress doesn't allow it.
Cut out the fabric in a half moon, slightly wider than the width from shoulder strap to shoulder strap. Try the dress on to double check where you want this piece to be placed.
Netting won't unravel, so I left the top edges raw to match the unfinished hem.
This isn't really an exact science...just use your eye to pin the remaining ruffles, then sew to your dress. The end result will be a dreamy, fluttery effect that matches the cut of the dress.
Would you ever raise a neckline this way?
