Hello everyone, so a month ago I ordered my dress and I’m a little nervous. It’s a casablanca 1827,
I have no actual worries about the dress. Up until I tried it on the dress shopping had been a harrowing experience. In this dress I finally felt at ease and dare I say it – happy.
The only problem was I never wanted a strapless dress. I was raised fairly conservatively and still don’t wear a tank top unless I have something over it. So without some kind of covering I feel naked. Because of this I opted to have sleeves and a back added to my dress. Both additions are based on casablanca 1901: (the back is the normal button up lace)
Instead of having the 1901 beading, we’ll have the lace without beading from my dress. The same goes for the back of the dress. I don’t know how this will work out since my dress does have beading on it. Will it clash with the alterations? Or will it be fine?
Anyway, my main concerns are how do you think the cap sleeves will look? Yay or nay?
Also, post any pics if you’ve got them! I’d love to see more of either of these dresses. 🙂 Here’s my obligatory pic (note: LOTS of clamps in the back!)
