Well folks the moment of truth was today with the addition of the sleeves on the dress! I am happy to report that the dress fit impeccably! The sleeves fit very well she has room to move but they are not big in any way, the belt makes the dress, gives it a whole other element so the sleeves must compliment the belt and they do to a T!!!
The lace finally decided it was OK to use the scalloped edge for the hem plus some of the scallop to finish the back kick pleats at the hem.
All in all we were both very happy!
