    I think it looks great without the sleeves, but if you want them it will look great that way too! I don’t think you should DIY unless you are good at sewing and can pick out a quality fabric that matches your dress well.

    I think it would look amazing if you added sleeves! It will make the dress so much more your own, especially when just about every dress is strapless, which I just can’t stand!

    I did it, and don’t regret it all! Used the cut-offs from the lace at the bottom of the dress. =)

    You have nothing to lose by whipping up sleeves. If they are detachable then you can decide on the day.

    HeLovesMexo:  I didn’t do it myself, the alterations lady did it, only took her an hour! Was so happy when I saw the dress with the sleeves added, it just completely changed the dress for me in a positive way. And it was so comforting not having to worry about the pushed-up armpit fat look in wedding photos! I would show you a better photo, but still waiting on my photos. =(

    And you can use hollywood tape to make the sleeves sit wherever you like… =)

    My friend added cap sleeves to her dress for the Catholic ceremony. They were attached with a hook and eye so they were easily removed for the reception. Just another option!

    I would not suggest adding sleeves to your dress. I think they would compete with the very ornate belt and multi-directional gathering of fabric in the bodice of your gown.
