    TBH I’m not keen on the sleeve length. They look like they were long and you rolled them up to do the dishes or something, especially in the second picture. Otherwise I think the dress is pretty enough but it doesn’t make me say wow. You have a great figure and I think you could do better.

    Im on the fence on this. I love everything except the top. The sleeves and illusion necklace rather too busy for me. The ribbon is quite busy as well.

    I love it! It looks great! I would maybe add a different belt to it. It’s very romantic, love!

    I love the detail, but I’m not loving the dress. I think the sleeves are the thing that is throwing it off for me – they’re a weird half-sleeve length that seems a little too casual. If they were cap, 3/4, or long it’d be more successful.

    It’s a beautiful dress (and I agree with  pps,  doesn’t need that belt, or any belt in fact)  .

    I’m not entirely sure what you mean by altering straps to make neckline higher ,as I can’t see any straps on that dress . It needs the  illusion shoulders and sleeves tightening and fitting,   I can see that , though I’ m not  sure that will bring the neckline any higher ?

    I think I agree re the sleeve length too, longer or shorter would be better .

    I voted to  keep looking , unless you really love it and it can pass  that clever test a pp suggested about imagining not being able to have it .  But I must reiterate that it is a beautiful  dress.
