    I’m planning to make my own sleeves as well. How/where did you find the lace appliques and was it hard to color coordinate?

    I’m planning to take parts cut off from the bottom to make a halter strap… I’m first planning to ask how much that would cost in alterations and if it’s over what we can afford I plan to attempt it myself. =D The numbers were from showing what alterations it needed… but I hope to make my dress look like #2 at the top from part of #3.

    After: I add straps and a sweetheart neckline:

     

     

    (OOps…that may be a little too close up…I was hoping the beading detail would show better)

    Back: I had the train removed:

    @40ishbride: The added straps are lovely, and do not look like an afterthought, which just eased my mind greatly (I definitely want straps very similar to those, and with the abundance of strapless dresses they will likely be a mod.  Did you have a seamstress before you chose your dress that you knew could do them?
