@MassageBee: Have you thought about just adding a bolero of some sort rather than actually adding sleeves to the dress?

I actually have the exact same dress and it is currently at the tailor having sleeves attached.  I’ll try and remember to come back here and post a picture of how it looks with the sleeves. I’m having them use the extra material from when it was hemmed, so it’ll have that satiny underlayer and the chiffon rouched up over it. I’m not doing a full sleeve, more like halfway between a tanktop sleeve and a cap sleeve. about 3 in. thick.

lol, honestly, if you could fit my dress I’d be happy to sell it to you after, that’s what I was planning to do. It’s a size 10 though and that’s a bit of a tight turn around, though we are going to San Fran for our honeymoon. Wouldn’t that be funny? A hand delievered dress pre-altered, lol.

@MassageBee: Yep, this is the photo I gave them. No DB won’t do sleeves other than the 3 options they have so I’m having it done at another tailor. ONly $60 though
