I’m looking for a way to add sleeves to this dress without it becoming too busy. Has anyone here added a dress topper over beading and/or lace on their dress. I would really feel more comfortable with some more coverage and was hoping someone here might be able to help.
I was thinking of something along the lines of this:
Or maybe this is sleeves won’t work:
Any advice would be really helpful! Thanks!

I live the first sleeves I really like the lace. A seamstress can alter your dress and add sleeves

I had my train removed and used the lace from that to add sleeves to my dress. My dress wasn’t strapless though, it had wide straps.
I‘d suggest you either use the same lace or sheer chiffon to add sleeves coming from underneath the bodice. It would be a great to keep the beading exposed. Here are some ideas

I added sleeves to my strapless dress! I had my seamstress custom make them using a couple different toppers/jackets as a pattern. She made the lace on the sleeves overlap the bodice so it blended in. My mind was blown, it was more beautiful than I ever expected!
