@carobinson:  Welcome to the hive and let me start off by saying that the dress is gorgeous! 

Adding sleeves sounds expensive and I don’t know if it can be done. I am sure there is a bolero out there that would compliment your dress 🙂

@carobinson:  The link you provided says detachable spagetti/halter straps come with it?  If you want a more significant strap then you may need to ask whereever you bought it if the designer sells extra lace from the dress.

@carobinson:  I bought extra lace and tulle with my dress and added a one shoulder!

@carobinson:  You have time!  My dress isn’t in yet, arriving at the end of the month. I am having extra lace sent to make straps. Only 2 months to get it done but they are not worried about the time crunch!

You definitely have time. I would check with a seamstress about adding cap sleeves which I think would look amazing with your gorgeous dress.

Beautiful dress. You should have time to have the straps added. Post a picture when it’s completed!

@carobinson:  I’m wondering if you could actually sew a bolero onto the top of the dress so it becomes your straps? Like one of these keyhole back ones:
