    The reason for the sleeves is because it was worn on a religious ceremony, so the shoulders should be covered :-)

    Princess Beatrice looked beautiful on her wedding day, I thought the dress was altered tastefully, and fitted her body perfectly, but however I think the extra length of fabric added to the skirt could have been better matched up, and the seam covered with embroidery, or vintage sparkly lace. The tiara was just right for the dress, the pattern and style complemented the dress, and Princess Beatrice face,and her body shape as well.

    I hope the queen already started. Given the granddaughter the dresses. I agree w your statement about people changing the dresses. Personally the sleeves dose not look good. She should have pull on small coat a short one. And she should have wear a petty coat. . the dress look to flat.

    The Fringe Tiara worn by The Queen on her wedding day was said to have broken the day of the wedding. The Royal Jewellers were rushed in to fix it so it could be worn at the wedding.

    Hey Karolina Zebrowska, the sleeves had to be added because it was a church wedding. Look at all the UK royal wedding dresses, do you see any without sleeves?

    I feel like its too juvenile for Princess Beatrice. Transparent puffy sleeves just reminds me of little flower girls. The transparent sleeves would look better if it were tight and elbow length or they could try to get the same main wedding fabric and make it elbow length. Or even just wore long gloves. I'm guessing they added the sleeves because of strict rules, shame... it would be gorgeous if she just wore it as is.

    I think the royals can only wear sleeveless dresses in the evening. Kate, Meghan, and Eugenie all wore long sleeve wedding dresses. Beatrice didn't wear her original wedding dress because her wedding ceremony and location had changed. Instead, she altered a vintage evening dress, but she would have needed to add sleeves because it was no longer an evening dress. The bottom piece was added because Beatrice is taller than the Queen by 2 or 3 inches. I loved it and wished other vintage evening dresses were worn by younger royals. ( I remake shirts, and I think the sleeves needed to be puffy to provide room for her arm to move.)

    Princess Beatrice had to have sleeves, Royal brides always have covered shoulders and arms, the satin at the base of the dress was to lengthen it - The Queen is about 6-7 inches shorter than her grand-daughter :)

    I love that Beatrice wore her Grandmother's dress! (On your poor sleepy kitty!) All of the women in my family wire regular day dresses or were built like a human Barbie doll (My Mom. D - cup, 21 inch waist. When her dress fits my waist, the entire bodice just falls down, it's so funny) Beatrice's figure is a bit like Queen Elizabeth 's, so that helped.

    I thought that royals had a rule for wedding dresses that the shoulders had to be covered. Hence, the controversy over Megan Markle’s dress. It is a beautiful homage to her grandmother and a truly stunning design. Considering how much the girl had to give up because of COVID, it is a true mark of love for history.

    It helps that Bea has a similar figure to the Queen at that age, so the shape stayed largely the same. This is such a lovely look, so unique and individual to the bride, which is what a wedding dress should be!

    I didn't dislike it - I just didn't love it. I thought it a bit drab. You can tell it wasn't worn the way it was designed to be worn, which was puffed out, to show off the beautiful jewels. Yeah - it just didn't pop, and you want it to pop on your wedding day. But don't worry, no one else has said this so I'm in extreme minority.

    The fabrics are not the same from the original to the altered... I'm corious if the satin band at the bottom is cut from the original satin used for the queens dress? Often the satin ordered was too much for the project and then saved. Clearly different gowns and beautifully copied

    As Her majesty is not nearly as tall as Princess Beatrice obviously the skirt needed to be made longer but I think they used the worng fabric. They shoudl have used something nearer to the original... it is quite possible that Her Majesty still has some of the original fabric. The join could have been disguised with some sort of trim.

    I don’t have a link but I remember seeing a clip from the wedding dress show where someone cut off the neck lacing or whatever it’s called in front of the mom and daughter and I’m not an expert but it looked like the same dress. There’s also a clip where they wash a dress because it had yellowed. I think at least some of the time they do actually alter the dress

    I absolutely love how tastefully and conservatively she had that dress altered. It was beautifully fit, still looked like the original and was gorgeous. I like the addition of sleeves. It may have been for modesty’s sake, it could be a simply style driven choice ( maybe she doesn’t like sleeveless) and it was well done without destroying it.

    British royal wedding dresses must have sleeves. It's not about the church. Actually, all wedding dresses should have sleeves. A white sleeveless formal dress is a debutante gown. I think the sleeves should have been long. The puffy sleeves are a bit discordant with the look of the original dress.

    It's a very beautiful dress, I am glad she wore it. The very puffy sleeves made it look like Dorothy's dress in the Wizard of Oz, but.... Oh well, this is a fantastic idea.
    Bea's mum loved Queen Victoria, and that looks like one of her tiaras, I think. Or at least one the queen wore on her wedding day. Lovely, sorry the original hemline wasn't kept, as it was so unusual, but I think it had to be that way.
    A masterful job refitting it, such an enexpected choice, but quite refreshing.

    As a rule for alterations, I’d say that you can alter it to fit your form, and if you want: add. If you have to deconstruct and reconstruct the thing to wear it how you want, buy a sundress and use that as your base instead.
