Has anyone added sleeves to their sleeveless gown and have a picture you can post? My gown is Alfred Angleo Belle which comes with what I guess you’d call a shrug. When I tried my dress on I found myself constanly pulling on it so it was suggested I take that off and add a sleeve but I just can’t picture it. Anyone have this problem? Pics would be so helpful. Thanks!

You could add a bolero. My dress came with a lace bolero that you could take on and off- but I knew I’d keep it on the whole time so I had snaps added to the bottom of it and inside my dress so that it would stay tucked in.
If this is something you’re interested in- check out etsy for handmade boleros. Good luck!

I’m in the process of adding sleeves to my dress so unfortunately I won’t have pics until the next fitting (April 1st). I knew I was going to have them added before I ordered my dress so we ordered extra material from the company so the colours/shades matched.
I almost went with a bolero but I was worried both about matching the shades/material and also if it was a hot day out, people would be trying to get me to take it off even though I’d be wearing it to feel comfortable with my arms, not to keep warm. I really do like what OoOTifsterOoO did though! I never thought to tuck in the bolero to make it look like part of the dress. Very pretty.

I added sleeves! Sorry for the pic of my back but I think you get a better idea with this shot.
