Hi Girls! This is my first real post and I just want to say I really love this website!
I have bought my wedding dress and just went for my first dress fitting with my seamstress. I don’t have a picture of my wedding dress but it is a strapless dress with a corset top and has a dropped waist. Now I often wear strapless dresses but for my wedding dress I wanted to be a little different. I find here in Australia there are a lot of strapless wedding dresses but not many wedding dresses with sleeves.
I was talking to my seamstress and she said I have plenty of options of adding sleeves/straps and I was wondering if any of you have had sleeves added to your dress. I would love to hear your ideas and any pictures if possible.
Thanks for your help!

Welcome to the Hive! What dress are you wearing? Even factory pics would help.

The Dress looks a little like this except in ivory and on the bodice there is very simple clear beading to add a bit of detail.
And it is very, very similar to this except the bottom of the dress has a layer that sweeps to the left and has a little diamante buckle for a little added detail on the side near my hip. It is quite a simple dress which has detail but not over the top. Does that make sense?

I added sleeves to mine and loved it, I’ll add a picture.
