I think the easiest thing to do would be to just rip the seams off at the sleeve (or cut them, depending on how the dress is made) and make the dress sleevless. Then knit yourself a cute shrug to go with it!

Yeah...unforts, it will be really difficult to resew those sleeves without it turning into a disaster area.  So I agree.  You can make it sleeveless.  Or maybe you could recut the flutter sleeves so that it's just a teeny flutter at the top of your shoulder instead of two drawing room curtains hanging down.

hhaha yea they are huge. i look wierd in sleevless dresses so maybe ill make it into a small fluttler sleeve?
plus it would be a bummer to cut off the sleeves cause they have a pretty lace egdge.
thanks everybody

Pin and try first! That's always the best suggestion for situations such as these.
