Jean from Ghost Tailor ch-ch-ch-changed the neckline of my favorite Francis graffiti dress. (Don’t worry! Christian approves.) Here’s the new look, paired with my Nuit ring in the ugly hallway.
Here’s the old look in sunny Paris.
Here’s David Bowie.
Speaking of rock stars, I wore the updated dress (get yours at Bloomie’s!) to dinner at Minetta Tavern tonight and saw Keith Richards and Patti Hansen … as well as my gorgeous friends Phil, Angeline, Norm and Jane. I was glad that I got all dolled up for the occasion.
Ziggy Stardust kicks ass!
I like the new neckline too. =D
Midtown Girl says
Love the new neckline!
Glad you enjoyed the graffiti dress in such great company 😉
Anne (in Reno) says
I love that segue! Any post that goes from awesome dresses to David Bowie is great in my book! And I think the roomier collar is really flattering on you.
oh what a lovely graffiti dress.
and your smile lits up the room.
Wow it’s amazing what a simple change makes!
Was the high neckline bugging you? Either way look nice.
La Belette Rouge says
David Bowie would have come to dinner if he knew you were there. Very cute alteration. What a difference a neckline can make.
Nice alteration – the best alterations are the tiny tweaks which make a big difference.
That video reminded me of this, which I was watching today:
Sister Wolf says
Oooooh, great job on that neckline. How did Patti Hansen look????
Make Do Style says
Fabulous rework of the dress!
Oh and I did have a WendyB disclaimer on my post yesterday which I forgot to include i.e. don’t read this post Wendy it doesn’t include you!
Keep the fabulousness coming!
PS the parcel hasn’t arrived yet.
Wow I love the new neckline! and you look so pretty!
You look gorgeous! Love the new neckline.
If you’re going to change the neckline you should at least be showing off a new necklace in stead of a ring! ; )
The dress was super before, but now it’s even more super.
deja pseu says
It looked great before, now is FANTASTIC!
xx-LJ from SOS!
I love that dress!
miss sophie says
i love the new neckline! i love how she didn’t cut off any of the graffiti print but ingeniously moved it down in line with the rest of the dress 🙂
The new neckline is fantastic!
Shes Dressing Up says
Wow, amazing spots at the restaurant! Love the new neckline
Wow I love the new neckline on you!
Much more flattering neckline!
I love it! The new neckline is very nice.
Fantastic! And even better that you got Christian’s blessing.
Eli, it didn’t bug me but I thought it might be better lower and I was right!
Skye, thanks for the link — fabulous.
Sister Wolf, Patti looked great. I saw her first and was wondering, “Is that Patti Hansen?” At which point, I saw Keef behind her and decided the answer was, “Yes.”
Make Do, invisible disclaimers! What will they think of next?
CFR, there’s an invisible teenie genie necklace there, just for you.
Sal, if he had tried to withhold the blessing, you know I would have beat one out of him anyway. Ha! But, really, he’s very enthused for a customer to make adjustments. He often says to me, “You’ll want the neckline lower on this, of course.”
All other peeps, thanks for the comments! Glad you like it. Jean is an artist.
Everybody Says Don't says
Great song! Great dress! I prefer a lower neck, I don’t like the way I look in a round high-ish neck. I think both necks look good on you xxx
Miss Janey says
Miss J l-l-loves the ch-ch-changes to the neckline. Very flattering to WendyB.
I really like the change to the neckline. And great Bowie song pick. 🙂
I love love love the dress. It reminds me of the kind of things SJP was styled in for SATC season 3 – which I think was by far the best season for clothes.
love the dress…and the alteration has been done so skilfully,..it looks amazing
This dress looks terrific both ways! You wear it so well.
I definitely like the new neckline. So much more flattering!
I love that blue ring! It pops so well with this look!
your ring is amazing, i love the colour
i like the new neckline.

Ok so you’ve got to be loving the anti-spam words you’ve put in here… otherwise your website is making a commentary on my personality (and it may be right) (the word is ‘beyotch’).
Anyway, I really like the new neckline, I think it looks much better (sorry Francis). And as always, you are just lovely!
fashion herald says
Lovely neckline, I like both ways but Jean’s alterations make it a little dressier. And kind of freaking out about the KR/PH sighting!
I really love the change…very flattering on you!!!
so cool that you spotted Keith Richards!!!
Couture Carrie says
Much improved, darling!
OMG the new neckline improves the look by a factor of about a million, and since I already loved the look with the fire of a million suns, let’s just say you look fantastic.
Holy cow, what sightings!
I like the new neckline on the dress. It’s very flattering for you.
Gerri Ward says
OMG! I luv the new neckline and your ring is solely gorgeous! Don’t think I’m weird but I wonder if Keith Richards still has that sexy Rock thingy going on!
David Bowie is classic! Love his music. Your dress is great and your hair looks so cute.
God, he is such the master of graffiti. You are such a lucky girl!!
syd vicious says
Bowie is wonderful and so is your dress!!
I’m diggin’ it! I need to make nice with a seamstress!
Oh wow I really like the change. Cool!!
Sharon Rose says
Hi there-the new neckline looks fab-mind you, I liked it how it was originally!! So pleased you had a great time too!!
I think Bowie would approve too!
