If you are buying a prom, bridesmaid or wedding dress in the store, you most likely experienced some frustration in trying to find some attempt at modesty straight off the rack that doesn’t look like a grandmother-of-the-bride dress or worst. Sleeveless dresses seem to be the standard and if you’re looking to show a little less skin, this can be extremely frustrating. Here’s some help, a full tutorial on how to add sleeves to a strapless dress that requires very simple sewing skills to follow. So go ahead and buy that darling strapless dress and follow this tutorial and confidently add sleeves on your own.
So there it is…. the very superficial role I played in Prom this year- altering a dress (or two) for my daughter’s friends. I was denied full involvement due to the fact that my own 16 year old daughter is in Costa Rica as a foreign exchange student (@qruby on Instagram for a glimpse at some fun pictures) until July. Q wasn’t too worried about missing Prom, she was surfing in Jaco instead- a trade I would take any day. We agreed upon the the fact that I would have liked to have seen what dress she would have chosen for that high school coming-of-age event. Ever since then, she’s been at work on a great “Prom dress” Pinterest board, and I love what she’s pinned. There’s always her senior Prom and a boxes full of vintage patterns in my sewing room to look forward too next year!
