I need some advice on how to make the sleeves on my dress more functional. The sleeves have ZERO elasticity. I can barely lift my arms so I am not sure how I will go about hugging/dancing on my wedding day. I don’t meet with alterations until the end of July so I’d love some ideas to bring to her! Sorry I cropped my head, don’t want anyone I know to happen upon a photo of me in the dress prior to the wedding =P Thanks ladies!

A good bridal alteration seamstress will probably have some ideas for you. Just explain your problem and tell her you need her to soolve the problem. She may be able to loosen the underarm portion or slim that part down so you can have more motion in your arms.

What about bringing the straps high up on your arm like this. I guess that would be making it more of straps instead of cap sleeves
Just a thought to make it maybe more of a strap so you are free to move your shoulders more….kinda like this?
