Hello bees, I’m looking for some advice…
What would you suggest wearing with this dress as a cover up? I’m not keen on the tops of my arms. Sorry for the quality of the pics but hopefully you can see the lace detail in the sash (yet to be detached from the ribbon and sewn on to the dress) and the back of the dress has the same V shape with ivory taffeta covered buttons running to the top of my hips.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Beautiful! Maybe look for a bolero with a keyhole back to show off the button detail you talked about? And I’m sure you could find one with Alencon lace to pick up some of the detail in the flowered sash.

Make sure the back of the bolero is long enough to reach the top of your gown’s back; I think a gap wouldn’t look very good.
I think something in matching ivory taffeta would look nice; you can have a similar floral/lace applique added to it.

Do you think cap sleeves or longer sleeves would work better? Nearly every picture I can see online of someone wearing a bolero with their strapless dress too. As mine has thick straps do you think it will look too much?
