@Blush_and_Bashful:  I can’t say I ADDED sleeves, my dress came with sleeves, actually my dress was built 100% for me (I went the persoanlly designed/custom route).  Sleeves are beautiful and timeless, and very fitting you add sleeves to a dress named “Grace Kelly” since her dress had sleeves. 

Here’s a pic of my dress (grandfather granddaughter dance pic…but it shoes the front of my dress well , still don’t have the pro pics yet). 

 

I can’t wait to see your pics, I am positive it will look great

One of the prime reasons I ordered custom (fabulousu.com) was because I REQUIRE sleeves. These arms do not need to see the light of day EVER. I couldn’t communicate clearly that I wanted 3/4th sleeves.. so I got full length and my seamstress agrees 3/4 looks best on me (with the ballgown long sleeved was just TOO too much) I do not regret it one bit but am quite nervous as she works to edit and attach the sleeves as she and I want! Good luck & PLEASE share when you get pics!!

I love the idea! I wish I’d thought about doing something like this and building on a sleeve that was already there instead of the method I took (demanding sleeve son a strapless) BUT I think the 3/4th will hit you right — thats what my seamstress is planning on doing — I am actually pretty excited for both of us — breathe easy & see what happens! I can’t wait to see pics tho!!

My dress came with sleeves.  Here is a pic for reference. You can see were a strapless dress would start.  Even though my dress is all one piece. Please ignore the poor lighting and the strap to hand the dress on showing through.
