    I’m the only one who voted :(…I said no sleeves, I love the dress as is.  I REALLY don’t like the gold one though

    I think the spun gold one is WAY overpriced. My mom got a top like that about ten years ago from Wal Mart or K-Mart. The only difference was that my mom’s was a full overshirt thing, and pretty tacky, while this one is cute. Still ,though, if it’s the same materials they are using at Walmart, it can’t possibly be worth $180 unless they are paying fair trade master artisans to weave them by hand in carbon neutral facilities…which, since it’s anthro, I seriously doubt.

    Have you looked on Etsy? If you cut a tiny piece of your dress from alterations scraps or an inconspicuous place, maybe you could send it in for someone to match and male a custom one for you.

    @mjoyelle:  

    I like sleeves but I don’t think it will look good with that dress.  That back is the best part so wearing a bolero will ruin the look of the nice open back.  I don’t see how you could add sleeves without it looking a little silly.  It’s a beautiful dress, just wear it as is.
