    I do not think tulle sleeves are flattering at all.  I would go with what the seamstress suggests!  I bet that will look great.

    The seamstress is an expert – I’d let her do her thing!  Beautiful dress by the way!

    I added sheer lace cap sleeves to my lace trumpet and everyone loves Them. But I like your long sleeve too.

    I would let the seamstress do her thing.  But, may I ask why you have to have sleeves?  The dress looks amazing on you the way it is and you’ve got a great figure you don’t need sleeves.

    I would go with the seamstress’ recommendation or make a sheer longer bolero. I’m not a fan of the other two options but I love your dress and I think the lace bolero will complement it!

    I thought I would add that the reason your seamestress wants to use the bolero that came with it is so that the lace matches Perfectly. If matching perfectly is important then let her do her thing. But it shouldn’t be impossible to make a custom bolero out of closely matching lace.

    I would also say go for the 3/4 length sleeves, but I  am pretty darn biased too Wink


    I HAVE to ask. Where did you get your earrings and bracelet from? They are STUNNING.

    Get the lace jacket/sleeves made. Those would look perfect with your gown. They are classic and gorgeous!!
