I really like the neck, shoulder detail and back on this inexpensive Monsoon dress. However the material looks thin and the bias cut seams stick out.

I have seen one in Ghost with better material but the rest of the dress is too plain. After department stores and ASOS I don't know where to look now.
I don't suppose anyone has seen similar? Such a good price too.

You could easily have a seamstress attach pieces of detail to the plainer dress. Beaded pieces sewn into the shoulders like this would be easy to do.

That's a good point. Thanks for the links.

The Ghost one has a high back as well though. By the time I have someone drop the back and sew on some fancy bits I'm guessing I could have just have bought a different dress though.
I thought this bit would be the most fun but actually it's really not.

Right there are a few options
Obviously you’ve looked at Ghost

This one has the embellishments on the shoulders but not as nice back http://www.debenhams.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/prod1070110001008020200285-11_

This one has a lovely back & lace detail

This plain but the right shape

Obviously this is just the high street options- you could then start to look at wedding dress shops - cowl back dresses

Wow wonky! Have you thought about doing this for a living?!

BrimFire Sun 11-Feb-18 21:09:45

Thanks Wonky. flowers Looks like it's off to Debenhams for a try on.

They had a nice one in Next too.

I have found Claire Pettibone now....I wish I hadn't
