I am new here and I need dress help (sleeve issues)

I have recently lost 180lbs so i have a lot of extra skin sagging on my arms. I am absolutly horrified of wearing a wedding dress. I need a dress that has sleeves but doesn't look like some ugly dress from the 70's and 80's. can anyone help with ideas?

Jasmine Couture has gowns that can be made with sleeves. I believe they call the option Temple Ready on their website.

I think both ideas should work for you.. a belero, with maybe a longer sleeve, and to use fabric from your dress [hem area, or if you can fnd the same in a store..or lace] and add sleeves to your dress. 


 


I work with a alterations compnay, Toast and Strawberries/Phoenix Bridal in Wash.,DC..Georgetown mall, and we are asked to add sleeves about once a month.  good luck..


 


you can call:  202- 723-9007, or email:  toaststrawberries@hotmail.com  if you have further questions, etc.
