Hi guys, this is my first go at updating a dress so I thought I'd ask for some help/ideas!
I want to take the studs off the cuffs because a few have fallen off and now it looks quite tatty!
Any ideas on what else I could try?

I'd remove the sleeves altogether, leaving a simple sheath dress. Then use the sleeve material to make fabric roses or trim at the neck and armholes.

Can you remove the studs without damaging the cuff fabric? If that's possible and you want to have sleeves, an easy update would be to remove the excess fullness at the top of the sleeve, making a sleeker silouette.

I would take the sleeves off and use the studs to decorate the neckline.

I would try adding a cut-out shape at the shoulders, a bit like this dress: http://www.loungelover.com/shopping/women/essentials-eternitees-cut-out-dress-in-black-item-10096467.aspx
