I don’t particularly like the puff sleeves, but other than that, it is lovely.

Im not crazy about the sleeves, maybe they should be more fitted?

it’s a bit matronly…

remove the sleeves, and have it more sheer at the neck, and it would look lovely

1970’s Vogue sewing pattern photo? Love the veil – if she’s a virgen as it’s got that kind of vintage nun/virgen shape to it. Bride looks like an Abba extra? 😉

I’m recycling a comment, but it reminds me of a choir robe.

Is it too personal to ask if you are Muslim and have attire specifications you must follow? If you don’t feel comfortable sharing, that’s ok… I actually think the dress is quite lovely and understated. I like the pleating down the length of the skirt and if my eyes are seeing it correctly (but I’m old so who knows) the top, above the bust is slightly sheer, which is also pretty.

Ladies – I just looked back at the OP’s most recent thread and she is in fact of the Muslim faith.  Therefore, a very modest appearance is necessary. 

IMO, I think it’s simple and beautiful.  However, I would probably do away with the puffy sleeves, as that is a bit mid-80’s/early 90’s.

@melisslp: Ok, I really do have old eyes– I don’t see the puffy sleeves. It seems like a completely straight sleeve. Hmmmm. Also, the model looks like Cheryl Tiegs. Geesh I AM old!

@LittleDee27:  LOL  Where the seam is, there is a tiny poof.  I agree that she looks like Chery T….what a “beauty”!

I love this look, so vintage and elegant. Don’t see any poof to the sleeves either! Think it’s lovely.

i personally find it very plain looking, i think there is so much that can be done with the dress and still maintain the covering up requirements!

I think the silhouette is very classic and modest without being too frumpy, but I would want a little bit more pizazz if it were me. Maybe some detailing added in lace or pearls or any kind of embellishment.

@dynamic_duo: Agreed.  There are fantastic, modest dresses out there these days.  The Spring 2011 bridal shows had A LOT of sleeves (Romona Keveza and Priscilla of Boston come to mind as having beautiful, sleeved gowns). Google “modest” and “gown” or “wedding” and you’ll find plenty of options from more affordable lines.
