    @amberkathleen:  I think it is beautiful! It just looks like it needs to be altered a bit on the top (tighter).

    I think maybe if you replaced the white sash with a thinner silver beaded one it might make it a bit more bridal looking.

    Pretty dress!

    I think it looks beautiful on you, and definitely not too much like a prom dress!

    I actually think extending the beading all the way down the bodice will make it more prom-like. As it is now it looks pretty darn bridal to me!

    I think your ideas to remove sash and add beading as well as off the shoulder straps would definitely make it look more romantic!

    @amberkathleen:  I like the beading where it is! I think you should just add a matching beaded belt 🙂

    @amberkathleen:  I actually really like the alterations you suggested. I don’t like the current belt.

    Neither look “prom” to me though, so you can’t really go wrong in that aspect.

    I don’t think it looks very “prom-like” as it is, but adding the sleeves will definitely not look like a prom dress

    I don’t think it looks too prom-ish at all, I would maybe make the belt just a little thinner. I think that would be more flattering.

    No, it doesn’t look too promish (unless you mean vintage 50s–which is a gorgeous style anyhow).

    I like the sparkly beading and I like the sash, but I think it’s too wide as is. It currently stops just below your natural waistline, which is giving the skirt an awkward bunched-up shape where it meets the bottom of the bodice. 

    Also, the sweetheart is very rounded and is simultaneously pushing your boobs inward and smushing your boobs downward at the same time (not very flattering).  think making the sweetheart more of a “V” shape might make it more flattering.
