Another of my sleeveless dresses LOL (I haven't gotten a new pattern to make anything else T.T)

I need advice whether I should add in sleeves but the yoke (?) was too short, and I just sewed in extra fabric. I think so far it's really cute for a typical party, but inappropiate for school (I'm a teacher). Should I make a shrug with the same red white fabric or wear a satinish black shrug to save the trouble? My BF suggested that I wear a tight black shirt underneath. What would you do?

I used a 1/2" band at the top hem instead of a 1/4"...is it too tight? (leaves a mark on my skin when worn, but doesn't cut off circulation...) Should I change out the band?

I think it's pretty obvious who I'll be...LOL

Very cute,

I'm also a teacher and would probably just wear a black long sleeve shirt underneath for the day.

 Smiley  You look great in it!,  so cute!

Just wondering, how about wide straps, with over sized buttons?  Perhaps then the cuteness factor would make it OK for school....

Easier to make than sleeves!!

I think I'll possibly go the strap or black LS tee route...It looks like I might need to spend $20 on the tee and yellow slippers to complete the look! Should I get white gloves?

I'd actually do both, tee and straps, as it'd be more Minnie.  DH is a teacher, and I know even just straps alone added to it wouldn't fly at his school, but they've got a rather strict dress code, and uniforms for the students on top of it.  The black tee and white gloves would be more Minnie, though, and quite possibly more comfy for you, depending on the temperature where you are.  It's really cute, though!

I agree that doing both would be cute.  I would say that you should get white gloves too.  This is too cute...I am sure the kids will love it.
