That is kinda what I am doing to my dress.  My seamstress said it was possible so I’m thinking you should be able to do it as well.  Good luck!

I think it would be cute w/ sleeves!

Totally! It would make it look more vintage as well. I think cap sleeves really balance out that silhouette anyway. Show us picks once it’s done 🙂

I would add a bolero instead of adding sleeves.  Several Bees have done that and the look is gorgeous.

And I would add the cowboy boots if that’s your style.  That’s what I love about being a bride.

I agree with the bolero. You could do a really cute one that is more modern, so you could take it off for pictures, etc.

Definitely add the sleeves, it’ll look great! Or alternatively, do a lace bolero.

I don’t know about how a bolero would look with a corset dress (probably fine? or is it the kind of corset where you can see your back through it? that might look kind of weird) but I think cap sleeves would be cute. I just want to point out that I don’t think that would make the dress any more comfortable; I don’t think cap sleeves “hold up” the dress or anything, (oh, wait, I just realized that you meant make you *feel* more comfortable.)
