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.

Agree with PP loads of places sell wonderful bridal appliqué

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
Or _

Debenhams _

This one has the embellishments on the shoulders but not as nice back

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?!

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
