I purchased a dress I love – Maggie Sottero Vienna. And it certainly is wonderful the way it is. However, I was thinking that I have always wanted cap sleeves on my wedding dress, just small ones over the shoulder. I do have to get this dress hemmed and I am wondering if anyone has had this done – used the extra material from the hem to make sleeves (or rather, had a seamstress do this)? I appreciate your help!

I’m considering adding cap sleeves to my strapless dress, too. I ordered extra fabric (lace) from my dress to give myself the option (I won’t be having the dress hemmed). But I think 3 inches off the bottom of your dress might be enough to make the sleeves. 2 inches sounds like it might not be. In any event, if the amount hemmed off the bottom is not sufficient, you might be able to find fabric that is a close enough match to the material of the dress and use that.
