Oh my god… I’m obsessed with your add-on sleeve! It’s so unique and GORGEOUS. I’ll be adding halter straps to my gown, but I don’t have a picture yet.

I took the pickups down (I hate pick ups)

and the dress had these horried flowers t the bust and at the hip that I also took off. I changed the back to a corset because my breast grew, and added more buttons. and took down the butsel of the train down. I dont have a picture of all the alterations.

@Double_rainbow:  

all pick ups look bad too me. I can’t stand them. It looks like random gathered material! I actually took the pickups down myself.

Love all the modifications, ladies! I had mine changed from strapless to off-the-shoulder.

@flying_hearts:  Wow! I didn’t know you could do something like that! How did you do it? Where did you get the fabric? (from your dress, ordered it, etc.)?

 

Also, for all the bees posting their alterations – how much does a major alteration like that usually run? I’d love to add sleeves or a train to mine but I’m terrified of how much it would cost!!
