Wow! How did you do the 3/4 length sleeve adjustments? They are perfect!

That is one feature that was truly important to me; it's definitely my style I like most. I tapered the sleeves from the elbow dart to the cuff. Thank you for noticing!

Stunning sewing! Truly a 'wow' dress. Love everything about it. You should be so proud of your accomplishment. I especially love how you tapered the sleeves and the length you made them. The fit is phenomenal! The neckline lays perfectly flat & the bodice skims your curves beautifully. Well done!
