That is fabulous!  I love the back and the new length.  Great job!

Absolutely beautiful! I've been meaning to do an open back for a while, and yours is so pretty!

I think it looks lovely the way it is, but I dug out a tutorial I found a while ago that might be of help for sleeves. It's for poufy cap sleeves, but I'm sure it would be simple to make it less so if that's what you'd like. Anyway, here's the link:

Hopefully it'll be a good reference. And good luck!

This embroidery near collar makes this dress much more vitage then before ! I would cut the back a little bit different but this version is also very pretty ; ) you look gorgeous!!
